A NEW SONG - Monthly Devotion

Dear fellow worker of the Christian Worship Hour:

Guess what, it is November! And what do you think about the most in November, not fire crackers,
but Thanksgiving! St. Paul tells us:

“In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus
concerning you.” I Thess. 5:18.

St. Paul was thankful in all things, here are six of them!

 HE IS THANKFUL FOR THE PRIVILEGE OF PRAYER. (Phil. 4:6). All of us are in that camp because it means we can go to the Heavenly Father at any time, day or night. Just think of it, we can walk into the very presence of God whenever we want. (Heb. 4:16). I know I am thankful I have the Father’s ear all the time. (Ps. 55:17; Ps. 121.4).

 HE IS THANKFUL FOR THE PEACE OF GOD. (Phil. 4:6). St. Paul says that it is a peace that “passeth all understanding”, that is, it is such a wonderful peace that it passes or exceeds all of our understanding. It is a peace the world cannot give, and a peace the world cannot take away! Praise God! (Ps. 90:1; John 14:27).

 HE IS THANKFUL FOR THE PRESENCE OF GOD. (Phil. 4:9). I don’t know about you, but for me that is one of the most wonderful things about my salvation—I have the dear Lord Jesus by my side wherever I go and whatever I do—-I am never away from my loving Savior! (Heb. 13:5). And you know what else, the wonderful presence of Jesus Christ is with me until I die, and then I am with Him forever! How can you beat that? (Ps. 46:7: Ps. 103:13: Matt 28:20).

 HE IS THANKFUL FOR THE POWER OF GOD. (Phil. 4:13). If you live to go into your 90’s, as I have, you will look back and see many ways God carried you, lifted you up, and strengthened our footsteps, all by His power. And let me tell you something else, there are a million times and a million ways He has helped us that we didn’t see or know about. (Ps. 139:1-6). And besides all that, He has delegated a host of angels to watch over us and guide our steps through this wilderness journey! (Ps. 23:11). What a great God! (Deut. 33:25).

 HE IS THANKFUL FOR THE PROVISION GOD SUPPLIES. (Phil 4:19). You know what, God has promised to supply our every need, that is, what we need to exist, not every whim and want that we might have, like some spoiled child. No. What we need, and I can tell you this, God knows what we need far more than we do. (Ps. 23:1; Isaiah 40:11; Phil. 4:11; I Peter 5:7).

 HE IS THANKFUL FOR THE SALVATION GOD PROVIDES! (John 3:16). You can go to every store in town, but you will never find salvation on the shelf—you know why? Because they don’t have it. There is only one place in creation where you can find salvation, everlasting life, and that is in Jesus. (John 14:6). That is why I just love to preach! Because I can present the wonderful salvation of God to everyone, no one is left out; no one has gone too far astray. (Ps. 55:22; Isaiah 1:18; Isaiah 43:2; Acts 4:12).

So, we are thankful we can tell the whole world about the Savior. Just remember: the more you GIVE, the more we reach. The more you PRAY, the more the Spirit works. The more you TELL OTHERS, the more come to Jesus.

Dear friend, we can reach only so far as you make it possible; God will do His part and I am confident all of us will too.

In Our Savior’s Love,

Harold E. Salem, pastor

LETTERS FROM OUR VIEWERS

THANK YOU FOR WRITING…
Please will you send me “Heart of a Shepherd”. I have unsaved family and I want them to see this. Please continue the good work. You have blessed me as I listen this morning. “Jesus is Lord”. Thank you Jesus.
YORKSHIRE, ENGLAND

Thank you for the Christian Worship Hour. That is now my church and has been for a couple of years. Through your church, I have accepted Jesus Christ. What a blessing. I have a bad heart and am an amputee. I live on a very fixed income. Please send me a copy of the “Heart of a Shepherd”. I cannot send my tithe right now. Thank you.
BRIDGER, MONTANA

I’m so looking forward to watching/listening to your video, “Heart of a Shepherd”. I ordered 2 extras for whoever the Lord asks me to give them to. Thank you for your ministry.
WAYNESVILLE, MISSOURI

Thank you for the DVD you sent. It was so good that I found myself watching it three times back to back. It was excellently done and so touching and meaningful.
ST. JOHN, NORTH DAKOTA

Could you please send me “Heart of a Shepherd”? I watched the movie on Daystar but need it to help others come to Him. Thanks so much!
ANCHORAGE, ALASKA

Love watching your show. I’m a nurse in assisted living and I turn your show on in a lot of the rooms. Everyone loves your worship hour.
ELLSWORTH, IOWA

I don’t have a lot of money. I will try to send more later. I would like to send your “Heart of a Shepherd” to my 5 children. Please send me them. My prayer for them is Ezekiel 36:26-27. I am praying they will watch your film and be saved.
BILLINGS, MONTANA

Your DVD “Heart of a Shepherd” was SO powerful that my husband and I sat speechless for 2 hours (during and after it). Excellent—Please pray that our son/wife/friends/nieces and nephews all listen to it 100% and respond. Thanks to all.
OMAHA, NEBRASKA

I’m a grandma and I live in a senior complex. I want to show my friends the path to Jesus but I’m having trouble finding the right words. I think “Heart of a Shepherd” is just what I need.
BURLEY, IDAHO

I do get my Bible ready, a pad of paper and a pen to take notes. I do fix a cup of tea but have no time for a nap. Just thought I’d throw that in! love you all—You are my church home.
AURORA, MISSOURI

I would like 4 movies of the “Heart of a Shepherd”. I can’t think of a better gift to bless my children with at Christmas time.
KIRON, IOWA

I would love to have 2 “Heart of a Shepherd” videos. I don’t have much money but soon as I do, I’ll send an offering. I’ll give one to a lady who is very lonely.
LOWRY CITY, MISSOURI

We love you! Loved your movie. We both cried. Can we get 7 more? God bless you all.
WEST DES MOINES, IOWA
