Good morning, we have reached the middle of the first month of 2021. Building materials are continuing to rise and the question is what is going to take place next. I do not have a crystal ball but our God knows the present and the future and calls upon us to trust and follow His Word. This by God's grace I shall do and with His help I desire to be faithful. Please pray for Jesse this morning as he is to have a catherization today.

Our scripture reading is from Genesis chapters 29 and 30, with the New Testament reading from Matthew 15. Chapter 29 the trickster, Jacob, is tricked once again proving that God is watching our good and our bad and whatsoever a man soweth he shall also reap. Chapter 30 the blessing of children and the heartache of a barren wife. Read this chapter carefully and behold the many teachings found therein.

In Matthew 13 the devil is working and God is working. The Word is given but the soul is not always ready to receive and grow. Chapter 15 When man's self righteous religion meets the God of Righteousness there are truths to be realized. Maybe not so with the Pharisees but in the world of seeking souls you will find faith. Read carefully verses 22 - 28. Our Lord's compassion for people leads Him once again to feed the hungry crowd of 4,000 men, plus women and children. Great miracles from a Great God. "Jesus loves me this I know, for the Bible tells me so". "He loves me, He loves me, He loves me this I know, He gave Himself to die for me, because He loves me so".

Pray one for another
