BIBLE MEDITATION: ?For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.? 2 Corinthians 4:16
DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT: So many people think that they cannot do much for the Lord as they enter the twilight years. God doesn?t change just because your health may take a turn, or you feel weaker. The faith that is inside of you has not weakened, unless you stop feeding it with works of faith. The things that God calls us to do in life do not hinge upon our physical stamina or financial strength. Do you know where one of the great strengths of a church liesí In its seniors who have walked with God for years. With their reservoir of wisdom and fortress of faith, they get hold of God and though their bodies are wearing a bit, they are as strong as they ever were because God is their strength. Douglas MacArthur once said, ?You are as young as your faith, as old as your doubts, as young as your self with confidence, as old as your fears, as young as your hope, as old as your despair.? God gives unfading strength for His undiminishing promises.
ACTION POINT: Are you retired? How are you using all your free time for the Lord? Here are some things to ask God to help you do for His glory: volunteer at a homeless shelter, go on mission trips, sing in the choir, write letters to prisoners and orphans, teach a Bible Study, and spend time in intercessory prayer for the great needs of your community and the world!
