This Day in History is a great way to look back to see what happened on this date in history years ago.
I became curious about what was written in The Daily Article twenty years ago, ten years ago, and even last year.
I was surprised at how relevant those earlier essays are to the world we are living in today.
The Scripture “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever” (Hebrews 13:8) came to mind.
Twenty years ago
On August 13, 2000—the first year Dr. Denison began writing what’s now known as The Daily Article—he wrote:
“Sometimes we need God to wake our souls, sometimes to forgive us, and sometimes to heal us. When we face life’s toughest times, the Psalms can help. These cries for help give voice to the most desperate soul. A large number are prayers in the midst of crisis . . . . And many warn of judgment against those who sin against God and us.”
He added that Psalm 91 was his favorite:
Claim the promise of its first verse: “He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.” Say with the Psalmist, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust” (v. 2). Keep reading and rejoice in God’s protection: he will save us from the fowler’s snare, from deadly pestilence, from the terror of night and the arrow of day, from pestilence and plague, and from the punishment of the wicked. So long as we stay “under his wings” we find refuge (v. 4).
Now take hold of the Psalm’s final promise: “He will call upon me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble. I will deliver him and honor him. With long life will I satisfy him, and show him my salvation” (vs. 15-16). What a wonderful hymn of trust and help.
Ten years ago
Fast-forward ten years to August 13, 2010.
Dr. Denison wrote about the Perseid meteor shower, which was visible that morning. The meteor shower was again visible this week, making…
WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
