LIMITING THE HOLY ONE

Today’s Reading: Psalms 78

Click scripture link to read online or HERE to listen online (then click the symbol of the audio speaker above the scripture portion).

 

A teacher brings a class of boys to visit the En Gedi Nature Reserve and loses control, as they jump fully clothed into the water! Here David took refuge from Saul. Perhaps David refreshed himself in this very waterfall. In the Jewish schools of Israel, the teachers do as our key verse says. In Israel the students are called Talmudim (translation = disciples).

Key Verse: Psalm 78:4, 41

We will not hide them from their children,

Telling to the generation to come the praises of the Lord,

And His strength and His wonderful works that He has done…

Yes, again and again they tempted God,

And limited the Holy One of Israel.

 

Asaph, The senior worship leader of Israel, composed this beautiful poetry and put it to music. Our reading for today puts emphasis on the responsibility we must carry in making sure that the children, the next generation, know the stories of God’s faithfulness. We must not neglect to also point out the people’s unfaithfulness. This teaching method has often inspired the next generation to rise above the older generation’s level of knowledge to experience God in new and powerful ways. Words put to music often have a greater impact on our lives than words alone.

PRAYER FOR TODAY:

Lord God, You work within human free will because You made us in Your image and likeness. I pray that I may not limit You by my failure to communicate Your stories I read in Your Word. May I also teach the next generation by recounting, in an effective manner, the experiences of my life. In the Name of the One who, at 12 years of age, listened to the teachers and asked them questions, Jesus of Nazareth. Amen!!!

100 PERSONAL WORDS:

I committed to publishing dozens of magazines back in the 70’s and early 80’s encouraging the reading of the Bible over two years. Ron has taken us down memory lane by inserting below an old “New Direction” magazine cover picture of my former co-host, Bob MacDougal (on our team from 1977 to 1992) and some of the commentaries (a bit yellow with age) from the Psalms, including today’s reading. My brother in Christ, Bob, shared often his marvellous conversion story, and he is with Jesus now. Between these “New Direction” magazines and the beginning of this blog, we’ve published ten books with the same purpose. Unfortunately, they are out of print and unavailable. All the commentaries were fresh bread, and were not copied from the many previous trips through the Scriptures. Now, 100words.ca is prepared just for you, my blog buddies!

Thanks for joining me faithfully,

David

  1. Thank You, Father, for Your faithfulness despite our (at least occasional) faithlessness. Help us to truly trust and obey You. In Jesus’s great name, amen

  2. Dear Saints, would you please pray for many people in Sudbury and outlining areas to come to hear Will Graham this wk, on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings. Praying for many souls to be saved as they hear the Gospel message.
    It will be held in our Sudbury Arena, however, if you do not have a vaccine passport, we have two other churches that will be live streaming the meetings.
    This is the first time that the Billy Graham Evangelist meetings have been up against a situation like this.
    Please pray and bind any spirit of confusion over these meetings and the meeting venues. Thank you so very much.

  3. Good Morning all. Trust you had a great Thanksgiving Weekend. So much to praise our Lord for. “Bless be the Lord, Who daily loadeth us with benefits” Ps. 68:19

    Great to be reminded of Father McDougal and the blessings of his testimony and life and ministry with 100 Huntley Street.

    To the Administrators:
    I did not get today’s blog in my ‘inbox’.. I can access but prefer to receive it daily.

    • I also didn’t get the blog in my inbox. Agreeing with the prayers mentioned. An amazingly beautiful day today. Thank You Lord. Blessings all.
