Salvation's Strength & Song

Today's devo speaks of the "strength and song" that is found in our relationship with God. (84)
The Isaiah 12:2-3 passage goes on to share where we gain our strength and where we find our song. "You will joyfully draw water from the wells of salvation." (Is. 12:2-3)
I am so thankful for the "wells of salvation" in my life...the people, places and opportunities God has placed in my life to refresh and encourage me, giving me more strength and many more songs.
My "wells of salvation" have come in various forms... through an old friend or a chance acquaintance, a new Truth or a well-seasoned Truth applied in a new way, through a caring smile, a kind comment, a random billboard quote, a phone call from a grandchild, a timely text message or even a hilarious email.
At just the right moment, God has given me a "well of salvation." Strength seeps into my soul and a song bubbles up in my heart!
Grateful for His Strength and Song...dmc

  1. MODERN DAY-APOSTLES?

    Some claim that there are apostles alive and well, living among us. Is that fact or fiction?

    QUESTION: What purpose would modern day apostles serve?
    QUESTION: If there are apostles today, why do they not mirror the acts of the apostles of the first century?

    Acts 2:43 Everyone kept feeling a sense of awe; and many wonders and signs were taking place through the apostles.

    Are people being filled with awe by the so-called modern day apostles? If that were true it would be on every TV network. It would dominate the cable TV channels. The Internet would flooded with accounts of these so-called modern day apostles.

    ACTS OF THE FIRST CENTURY APOSTLES


    The apostle Paul cause the magician Elymas to be temporarily blinded.(Acts 13:8-12)


    Are the so-called contemporary apostles causing men to go blind? No.


    The apostle Peter brought Tabitha back from the dead. (Acts 9:36-41)


    Are the 21 century pretend-apostles bring people back from the dead? No. If they could bring men back from the dead they would invite TV crews into funeral homes, to witness their miracles.


    The apostle Peter predicted the immediate death of Sapphira. (Acts 5:1-11)


    Can the false modern day apostles predict the immediate death of people who lie to God? Of course they cannot.


    The apostle Peter immediately healed a lame man who had been lame from birth. (Acts 3:1-10)


    If these so-call modern day apostles could heal men who were lame from birth it would on every, nightly, TV news broadcast.


    THE SIGNS OF AN APOSTLE


    2 Corinthians 12:12 The signs of a true apostle were performed among you with all perseverance, by signs and wonders and miracles.


    The so-called modern day apostles are missing the signs of a true apostle. Be careful not to get detoured down the wrong road by following false sign makers.


    WE DO NOT NEED SO-CALLED MODERN DAY APOSTLES!


    We have the completed Bible. We have all the information we
    need for salvation and living the Christian life. God's word was confirmed by Jesus and the apostles of the first century.


    2 Timothy 3:15-17 and from childhood you have know the scared writings which are able to give you the wisdom that leads to salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. 16 All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; 17 so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.


    By A.D. 100 men had all the Scripture they needed for salvation and living the Christian life.


    WE HAVE THE RECORDED WORD OF GOD. THE BIBLE.


    WE DO NOT NEED SO-CALLED MODERN DAY APOSTLES!
