A Word from The Sponsor~October 28

We went through fire and water, but you brought us to a place of abundance. ~Psalm 66:12b

We went through fire and water, but you brought us to a place of abundance. Psalm 66:12b

The verse today~Psalm 66:12b~has a little “b” at the end. It is the “b” that provides the happy ending that makes great movies and great stories.

To get the full story, it is important to read the entire Psalm.

Psalm 66:10-12a: “For you, O God, tested us; You refined us like silver. You brought us into prison and laid burdens on our backs. You let men ride over our heads; we went through fire and water, but You brought us to a place of abundance.”

Os Hillman explained, “God’s economy of abundance often has little to do with material blessing. In God’s economy, abundance is often measured in wisdom and knowledge of Himself. It is then that we are truly blessed. Wisdom cannot be gained through intellectual pursuits. Wisdom comes only through experience. Real wisdom comes from the kinds of experiences that come only through the deepest tests. Lessons of refinement, including prison accompanied by burdens, lead us through the fire and water. This is the territory that must be traveled to reach that place of abundance.”

Stay strong and thankful if you, like me, find yourself in the Remaining Place. The darkest hour is just before daybreak.
