Minister’s Message September 2014

September  2014

 

To the members and friends of Varsity Acres Presbyterian Church;

 

He is the Lord our God… he is mindful of his covenant forever,

            of the word that he commanded, for a thousand generations.

Psalm 105:7-8

 

It is so easy to get caught up in the details, to have so many things to remember, so many obligations to juggle, so many deadlines to face.  We wonder how we will keep it all straight and how we will ever cope with it all.

Surely God’s people in every age have struggled with some of the same feeling of being overwhelmed.  So the psalmist encourages us to take a step back and see the big picture, to take the long view.   Imagine recalling God’s faithfulness not just for ourselves in our own experience, but for a thousand generations, for the entire scope of the history of God’s involvement in the lives of God’s people.

 

Such a remembrance can give us confidence for what lies ahead and the assurance that in all things God is with us, and is able to see us through.

 

In Christ,

Rev. Bob Smith
