    Yahweh spoke to Manasseh, and to his people; but they didn't listen. Therefore Yahweh brought on them the captains of the army of the king of Assyria, who took Manasseh in chains, bound him with fetters, and carried him to Babylon. When he was in distress, he begged Yahweh his God, and humbled himse...

    Your word is a lamp to my feet, And a light for my path. Psalms 119:105 WEBThe old oil lamps that were used in biblical times had a small radius of light. They would light the path just a few feet ahead of you, and you could not see very far down the road. When traveling by night, you could see just...

Working For The Weekend

  • As it was in the days of Noah, even so will it be also in the days of the Son of Man. They ate, they drank, they married, and they were given in marriage until the day that Noah entered into the ship, and the flood came and destroyed them all. Luke 17:26 WEB

    As Noah labored on the big boat in his yard day after day, life went on around him. People were eating, drinking, attending weddings, and carrying on with their lives oblivious to the fact that the end was soon approaching. Though Noah was a righteous man and preached to them (2 Peter 2:5), they didn't listen.

    Then the day came when it was too late. The door of the ark was shut, and the rain started to fall. God sealed the door Himself, and when He did, those that were inside, stayed inside, and those that were outside, stayed outside. It was too late to say 'Hey wait on me!'

    The day is coming like a thief in the night when the Lord Jesus will return to the earth (1 Thessalonians 5:2-3). Thieves in biblical times were not cat burglars. It was a sudden surprise attack with a dagger in the back and loud shrieking. I don't know exactly what that day will hold, but Jesus warned us several times to not let it catch us unaware like the foolish virgins (Matthew 25:1).

    It is pretty clear to me that not everyone is going to be saved, no matter how hard we try. Each person on earth has to choose for themselves, and the decision cannot be made for them by others. Many are just too caught up in life to be bothered. Many are just working for the weekend.

    God loves you and He wants us to enjoy our lives. You can still have fun, just include Him in whatever you are doing, and do not forget about Him like they did in the past. When I go fishing, He goes with me. He wants a meaningful relationship with you. You will never be caught off guard if you just take some time to pray and listen. Remember, there is more to life than working for the weekend.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I look to You today. Please walk with me, talk with me, and help me to know You better. Speak to me in a way that I understand, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

    Note: "Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer" (Romans 12:12). If you have a prayer need, we are here for you! We and the prayer team are ready to lift you up at our private prayer page: RHM Prayer Network
