What happened to the rod that Aaron cast down?
What did Aaron's rod do that Pharaoh's magician's rod did not do?
What was the first plague that was put on the Egyptians?
LESSON: These were some real bad plagues that came upon Egypt. We need to remember that during this time, God took care of His Children. Even so today God takes care of us.
PRAYER: Father, help me not to fear what man can throw at me. As I live this day, keep me safe. Amen!
Three Keys to Happiness
The psalmist wrote in Psalm 144:15 "...happy are the people whose God is the Lord." Fear hinders our faith but, but trust always kindles confidence. An elderly gentleman was asked what had robbed him of joy the most in his lifetime. His answer was surprising as he said, "Things that never happened!" All of us can recall needless burdens that we have carried and worried over expecting the worse. Certainly the Lord does not lay such burdens on us. Someone has cited these three keys to happiness:
FRET NOT - Jesus loves you (John 13:1)
FAINT NOT - Jesus holds you (Psalm 13:10)
FEAR NOT - Jesus keeps you (Psalm 121:5)
As we rest in the love and keeping power of Christ, the Lord will give us strength and the ability to move forward without being afraid. If you want more joy today, use the three keys to happiness!
