Dear LAURA VALENTINA,

As you celebrate your birthday this month, may God’s grace and peace be unto you always. It is our prayer that you will continue to grow in wisdom and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

We have selected a reading from Our Daily Bread which we pray will encourage you to draw near to God and saturate yourself with His Word everyday even as He adds days and years to your life.

Seeing God’s Hand
Read: Ezra 7:1-10,27-28

On Jack Borden’s 101st birthday, he awoke at 5 a.m., ate a hearty breakfast, and was at his law office by 6:30 ready to begin his day. When asked the secret of his long life, the practicing attorney smiled and quipped, “Not dying.”

But there’s more to it than that. Mr. Borden, who was baptized at age 11 in the Clear Fork of the Trinity River, told Fort Worth (Texas) Star-Telegram reporter David Casstevens, “I’m a firm believer that God has His hand in everything that happens. He is letting me live for some reason. I try to do the things that I believe He wants me to.”

Ezra the priest experienced the “good hand of his God upon him” when he led a delegation to Jerusalem to provide spiritual leadership for the former captives who were rebuilding the temple and the city (Ezra 7:9-10). Ezra found strength and courage in knowing that the Lord was with them each step of the way. “So I was encouraged, as the hand of the Lord my God was upon me; and I gathered leading men of Israel to go up with me” (v.28).

When we see the Lord’s hand in our lives, it brings forth a deep “Thank you” and a growing desire to do what He wants us to do. — by David C. McCasland
If we would view through eyes of faith
The course of each new day,
We’d quickly see God’s gracious hand
In all that comes our way. —D. De Haan

If you know that God’s hand is in everything, you can leave everything in God’s hands
