TOPIC: It Can Change
READ: EXODUS 36:17-23
And he made fifty loops upon the uttermost edge of the curtain in the coupling, and fifty loops made he upon the edge of the curtain which coupleth the second.
And he made fifty taches of brass to couple the tent together, that it might be one.
And he made a covering for the tent of rams’ skins dyed red, and a covering of badgers’ skins above that.
And he made boards for the tabernacle of shittim wood, standing up.
The length of a board was ten cubits, and the breadth of a board one cubit and a half.
One board had two tenons, equally distant one from another: thus did he make for all the boards of the tabernacle.
And he made boards for the tabernacle; twenty boards for the south side southward:
MEMORIZE: Genesis 6:6
And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.
Even though the Bible refers to God as the unchanging changer, once in a while, He still changes His mind if a sinner who was heading for hell truly repents of his/her sins, He/she will win God’s heart and have his/her name written in the book of life.
Likewise, if a righteous man whom God has purposed to make great suddenly returns to his/her sins, God will immediately delete his/her name from the book of life.
It’s good to know what God has said about you or a situation, but it is better to know what He is presently.saying now. Jeremiah 29:11 says: “For I know the thoughts that I think towards you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.”
Unfortunately, many people walk out on God’s plans for their lives and eventually end up badly. God has set before everyone both life and death and has advised us to choose life.
Beloved, God’s plans for you are beautiful. Please cooperate with Him so that He won’t have to change His mind concerning you.
Father, give me the grace to continue to do Your will so that Your promises for my life will come to pass in Jesus’ name.
HYMN 5 – TAKE MY LIFE AND LET IT BE
1. Take my life and let it
Consecrated Lord to Thee
Take my moment and my days
Let them flow ceaseless praise.
2. Take my hands and let them move
At the impulse of Thy love
Take my feet and let them be
Swift and beautiful for thee
3. Take my voice and let me sing
Always only for my king;
Take my lips and let them be
Filled with messages from Thee.
4. Take my sliver and my gold
Not a mite would I withhold
Take my intellect, and use
Every power as thou shalt choose.
5. Take my will and make it Thine,
It shall no longer mine:
Take my heart, it is Thine own;
It shall be Thy royal throne,
6. Take my love, my Lord, I pour
At Thy feet its treasure store;
Take myself, and I will be
Ever, only, all for thee
