A Manual

The Bible is a manual for living as we travel along life’s journey. The Old Testament foretells of things to come, and the New Testament is the fulfillment. From the very beginning, when the “First Adam” sinned, God thought of a plan to bring us back to Him. Jeremiah 29:11-13 says, “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you an expected end. “ v12) “Then shall you call upon me, and you shall go and pray unto me, and I will listen unto you.” v13) “And you shall seek me, and find me, when you shall search for me with all your heart.”

Prayer changes things. No matter what path we take, when we pray, call upon the LORD, and seek His face, He will lead us through the straight and narrow path. He knows the end from the beginning. God sent the “Second Adam,” Jesus Christ to get us to the expected end. No matter what is going on around you; storms of life, or any other calamity, God already has a plan working for you. He sent His “Only Begotten Son” to shelter you and to lift you up above the storms. The journey may be long and hard, just remember Jesus is before you.
