Weeds! Argh!!!!

Season 11, Ep. 224

Web article on crab grass. 

Harbor Freight Weed Torch

I have been waging war recently on this Goliath of weeds- crab grass! First, I sprayed the fully developed plant with total vegetation killer, then I torched them with the inferno from the Harbor Freight Weed Torch, finally I took my sharpened garden hoe ground down with a knife-like edge, and it still took all of my might, seriously – to extract the crab grass out of the packed, dry, dirt. Have you ever experienced anything like that? It’s clear from the book of Genesis that weeds came about as a part of the fall. But within the consequences of that original sin, God uses the weeds of life to bring about his glory and his honor, and his provision by his miracle working power in real time, in our real lives. Friend, it is ironical that someone whose life is one even and smooth path, that appears to be weed free, will see very little of the glory of the Lord, because they have few occasions of self-emptying, and as a result, very little preparation for being filled with the revelation of God. Glory to God that through the saving grace of Jesus Christ, in the great fight of affliction, we have been equipped and made receptive for the real world manifestation of his glory in his wonderful dealings with us. Deuteronomy 5:24 says that ‘Look, the Lord our God has shown us his glory and his greatness'.

Ultimate Good

Season 12, Ep. 260
Romans 8:28 Christ alone is the one thing necessary, and the excellence of the knowledge of Jesus Christ our Lord is superior to anything this world has to offer. Without him the human soul is undone to all eternity. If we belong to God we will learn this lesson either through the school of God's Word or in the school of affliction. In this episode we are reminded how God's rod of correction through life's afflictions is an extension of His love which results in strength and gain for our souls.Buy Voices From The PastAll readings in this mini-series from "Voices From The Past" (copyrighted material) are used with permission from the publisher.“Voices From The Past: Puritan Devotional Readings,” edited by Richard Rushing.
