Today's Scripture: "Then He gave him the covenant of circumcision; and so Abraham begot Isaac and circumcised him on the eighth day; and Isaac begot Jacob, and Jacob begot the twelve patriarchs." Acts 7:8

See it.

It is written

Live it.

In a year when a businessman beats the Washington establishment for the highest office in the land, it's only right that Army would beat Navy in football after fourteen consecutive years of losses. In my own life, I never imagined seeing my seventieth birthday, my wife and I retiring and after twenty years of negligible income to do rewarding work and possibly even see a ministry goal come to fruition. This has to be a God thing.

You can't look in the Bible and not see the fact that God chose some people and didn't choose others. The only question is what part the "chosen" played in their selection. Was it a forcible takeover of a person's will or did that person choose to participate. Before you think I've gone off the deep end, I used terms the world employs to debunk the sovereignty of God. The fact is that everyone works God's plan regardless their willingness, some more notably than others. What kind of God would do otherwise?

Pray it.

I gladly surrender my plans to know and experience Yours, God.
