Thought For Today

I greet you in Jesus’ precious name! It is Tuesday morning the 24th of January, 2023, and this is your friend, Angus Buchan with a thought for today.

“For since the beginning of the world
Men have not heard nor perceived by the ear,
Nor has the eye seen any God besides You,
Who acts for the one who waits for Him.”
Isaiah 64:4

I love that,” …who acts for the one who waits for Him.

“Eye has not seen, nor ear heard,
Nor have entered into the heart of man
The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”
1 Corinthians 2:9

You know Romans 8:19 says that all creation, that’s the world, is waiting with expectation, on tiptoes, for the manifestation of the sons of God. The world does not know what to do anymore. They are waiting to see what the sons and daughters are going to do about it. The question is, ”What are you and I doing about it?” The Lord has prepared some amazing things for us but with faith we’ve got to step out and take it.

One of my heroes is a man by the name of Dwight Lyman Moody, an American evangelist that lived in the 1800’s. He was known as D.L. Moody. He had a very, very bad start in life. He came from a very big family, his father died before he even remembered him. His mother was very poor but she brought up 8 or 9 children. D. L. Moody was a man who took God’s word literally. He said, ”The world has yet to see what God can do with a man fully consecrated to Him, and by God’s help I aim to be that man.” Wow, and he sure was!

Folks, that man was a shoe salesman, that’s all he was. He was known as the greatest layman. He had no education whatsoever, he had a Grade 4 education and yet that man took God’s word literally and he began the massive Moody Bible Institute which is still going on today. He also started two publishing houses. He was a great evangelist as well. When he went to Great Britain for a campaign, literally trains of people would follow him from city to city. He’s the one who said, ”Give your life to God because He can do more with it than you can.” He said, ”If God is your partner, make your plans big.”

Have a wonderful day today.
Jesus bless you and goodbye.
