A NEW SONG - Monthly Devotion

Dear fellow worker of the Christian Worship Hour:
For this month’s meditation I want to use the words of the Prophet Isaiah when he declared:

“They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run
and not be weary; and they shall walk; and not faint.”
Isaiah 40:31
Let me mention four ways that this great promise of God gives help & encouragement to us:

 THE EAGLE IS NOTED FOR ITS GREAT STRENGTH. There are all sorts of stories about how strong this bird is. I have heard that an eagle can clutch a small child, or young lamb, and carry it away. When the Roman Empire, and later on, the United States, wanted an emblem typifying might and power, they chose the eagle. That is a good choice, because the Christian has access to great and wonderful strength through the Lord. (Phil 4:13).
He gives us strength to overcome the many temptations the devil sends our way. God has promised never to let us be tempted more than we are able. (I Cor. 10:13). He has promised to give us supernatural strength to overcome habits that are harmful and unbecoming to a believer. He helps us to withstand the troubles and trials that afflict every Christian (John 16:33) and He makes that help possible through a whispered prayer. God helps us to witness to those about us. Satan wants us to be ashamed of Jesus. (Matt. 10:32,33).
 THE EAGLE IS NOTED FOR ITS FAR-SIGHTEDNESS. Eagles can see at amazing distances, so they nest in tall trees or cliffs. While soaring at great height, they can see a tiny mouse with no difficulty. But guess what, a Christian can see much farther! We can see into eternity by faith; we can see heaven as we read about it in the Bible (Rev. 21:1-7) and we can see the Lord Jesus as we study and meditate upon His Holy Word. Stephen, first martyr of the Christian Church, saw Jesus on God’s right hand (Acts 7:55-56). Abraham, who spent all of his life living in flimsy tents, because of strong faith, could visualize “a city that hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God” (Hebrews 11:10). Every one of us who names the name of Christ can have the same, exciting, thrilling vision.
 THE EAGLE IS NOTED FOR ITS FLIGHT. Eagles can fly great distances and at tremendous heights. That is a perfect picture of the Christian. We are not earth-bound or limited to this sphere on which we live – at any moment we can soar beyond this globe and approach the very throne of God in heaven! (Heb. 4:16). We can slip away from the sorrows that beset us, and spend time with God at His throne. At any moment we can be in the Father’s presence and have His comforting Spirit uplift our spirit. Talk about eagles flying high, they aren’t even in the same ballpark as a Christian communing with the Heavenly Father! We can soar beyond the confines of this present world. It is true, the Christian walks on this earth, but his head is above the clouds in heaven. (Heb. 4:16).

 THE EAGLE IS NOTED FOR ITS LONG LIFE. They have a very long life – it just seems they never die. Some writers tell us that eagles live to be 100 years old! I wonder about that, but I do not wonder about the long life of the Believer. Jesus said, if we believed in Him, we would never die! (John 11:25-26). That’s longer than any eagle ever lived. How wonderful to know that we will live forever, and in bliss with the Lord Jesus and the Heavenly Father! (John 3:16). So, take a lesson from the eagle and take heart.

Again, my thanks for your prayers and gifts. We can carry on only as you stand by with your faithful giving. God has provided through His people for over 40 years!

God bless you.

In our Savior’s Love,

Harold E. Salem, Pastor

LETTERS FROM OUR VIEWERS

THANK YOU FOR WRITING…
We love the letters—we’ve had a lot of questions answered through these letters.
WARRENSBURG, MISSOURI

I have some friends whose husband was an unbeliever. His wife was a Christian. They had to move into an assisted living facility and started watching Christian Worship hour. So on Sundays, they watched you on TV. One Sunday as you gave the call to accept Christ. He said to his wife, “is this all I have to do”. She said “YES.” So he said the prayer and in 10 days he passed away. Praise the Lord He is with Christ today.
SIOUX FALLS, SOUTH DAKOTA

In honor of our 46th Wedding Anniversary. Both our families thought it wouldn’t last…but by having Christ as the center of our marriage it has!
FARGO, NORTH DAKOTA

Dear Postman, please give your heart to Jesus—-He is the answer to all your problems.
WEST PALM BEACH, FLORIDA

You have been in our lives for many years. In fact, three weeks before my grandfather died, he committed his life to Jesus. He had been listening to you for many years. By listening to your sermons, he is now in heaven. Thank you for all you do!!!
VERGAS, MINNESOTA

I just feel so blessed that I found you on T.V. over 4 years ago. I was in a very dark place and you helped me get to the sunshine and Jesus. I pray for all the families that are sad, and pray that our Lord will help them. Peace and Love.
CRAWFORDSVILLE, INDIANA

When I was a small child, like 5, I had a friend Sarah and her brother on the school bus asked, “do you want to pray?” One day I said yes. We bowed our heads and prayed. I remember crying with tears of joy. All I know is I said out loud, thank you for whatever you did! By the time I got home I went running in my house and told my mom I was saved. My mother was worried I was too young. She told me no, I wasn’t saved. It caused me confusion so I asked Jesus over and over again to save me. But listening to you has helped me to have peace about my salvation all because of Jesus. He is worthy. Thank you Jesus for saving a sinner and making me a new Christian. God bless you all!
HUNTSVILLE, ARIZONA

Thank you for bringing hope to those who would otherwise be sad, lonely and broken. (Psalm 34:19).
FENNVILLE, MICHIGAN

I am a twenty-two year retired Navy Seal. I was brought up in the church from a young age. Through my years in the Navy I always found time to read my Bible and pray every day. “God” got me through some tough times! I retired in 1999 and moved to Indiana. I started listening to your program about a month ago. I like the way you put “God’s” Word. You preach the way I grew up straight from the Bible. (Old School). “God” bless you and yours. Your brother in Christ. Keep up the great work in the Name of Jesus!!!
CHESTERTON, INDIANA

Bless you, Pastor; I get such a kick out of you! You always make me smile! Example—you say, “Today I’m going to talk about the Angels. Oh, how I love to talk about the Angels.” NEXT Sunday—“Today I’m going to talk about Daniel. Oh, how I love to talk about Daniel.” NEXT Sunday—Same thing. Perhaps you should just say, “Oh, how I love to preach the Word of God.”
SEASIDE, OREGON
