Highs Quickly Can Become Lows

by Pastor Pete Panitzke on August 10, 2020

Click here to watch today’s video devotion. How quickly your highs can become lows!

  • In our Old Testament lesson (see daily reading plan attached), Elijah’s ministry high point quickly became his ministry low point, so low that he wanted to die. Read 1 Kings 18-19 here.
  • In our New Testament lesson (read Romans 5 here), Paul begins with the assurance of peace with God and then leads us into the lowest point – Adam’s sin alone is enough to make us guilty and subject to eternal death before God. But where we see sin more clearly, there we can see God’s grace more clearly. "Where sin abounded, grace did much more abound!"

It is in our low points that the Lord Jesus can work the miracle of faith in his saving grace and loving control of our lives.

Join us in a Zoom Bible study on Thursday at 7 pm using the attached GroupWork. We will be studying 1 Corinthians 12-14, digging deeper into the topic of spiritual gifts. I will send out a link just before the 7 pm study. You don't need to download Zoom. All you need is a phone, tablet or laptop that has a camera and microphone. I look forward to seeing many of you Thursday evening.

God give you joy as you see the Lord using you today in his Kingdom Work, no matter what you doing.
