Deuteronomy 31:8 The Lord will lead you. He himself is with you. He will not fail you or leave you. Don’t worry. Don’t be afraid!

For many people (me included back in the day), the idea of “religion”, of God, of Jesus … well it all seems so distant, so irrelevant to the hurly-burly of life here in the 21st century … until that moment when it doesn’t anymore.

I have a confession to make. I hate heights. When I was training to become an army officer, I was offered the opportunity to take a parachute jump. You have to be kidding! Why would you jump out of a perfectly serviceable aircraft at ten thousand feet?!

But on the other hand, if the engines were on fire, if it were about to crash and someone offered me a parachute, I strongly suspect that at that point, I’d take the leap.

There are people who live their lives like that; a marriage that’s about to crash, a life that’s out of control – God’s been offering you Jesus all along, but why would you?

Until now … until this very moment in time. He’s patient. Sometimes He waits until life is such a mess that we don’t have anywhere else to turn. That’s precisely what happened to me a quarter of a century ago.

And you know, my only regret is that I left it so long. Why? I don’t know. But He was there all along, just waiting for the right time.

Perhaps now is the time for you to turn your life in His direction. Perhaps today Jesus is knocking on the door of your heart, waiting for you to respond. With all that I am, let me encourage you to do just that. Because no matter what situation, what circumstance, even what mess you may find yourself in today …

Deuteronomy 31:8 The Lord will lead you. He himself is with you. He will not fail you or leave you. Don’t worry. Don’t be afraid!

That’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.

Hi Berni,
I recieve your Fresh daily devotional each day. I enjoy your simple, practical way of getting God’s message across. I have to say, myself and no doubt many others struggle with the Bible when it uses words like doth, thee and others like it. I’m sure you know what I mean. We should never be ashamed of preaching the Gospel. However, if you can’t get your message across to people because they won’t listen, then it can be quite discouraging. As I said earlier, you have a good way and style when spreading the good news. I live in Scotland, near Glasgow. I was brought up a Catholic like yourself. I became a Christian three years ago. I started to attend a Baptist church, which I enjoyed. I meet many people who ask or question, not in a bad way, why I still attend Mass. I heard a saying that bad Catholics (people who don’t know the Faith and are Catholics in name only) become Protestants and good Protestants become Catholics. I:e Scott Hahn, Marcus Heidi etc. I struggle to understand why guys like Scott Hahn who by his own admission, were anti Catholic and steeped in the Bible, (sola scripture) would then become a Catholic. It’s a real issue for me at present. Feel like I’m stuck in no man’s land going between my Catholic Christian friends and my Protestant Christian friends lol. Anyway, keep up the good work. As I said, I enjoy how God’s message through you, has a story in it and is easy to understand. Take care and God bless. Jim
