Joshua 22:22

Better Than Mighty Mouse

12/16/2020

When you were a child, did you watch the cartoon, “Mighty Mouse”? Do you remember the chorus, “Here I come to save the day!” When I was young, I was confident Mighty Mouse would save the day. Growing older doesn’t mean we no longer need someone to save us. We do. We need someone to save us from our sins. We need someone to save us from physical, emotional, and spiritual threats. Unlike Mighty Mouse, the One on whom we call is real. Joshua 22:22 says, “The MIGHTY ONE, God, the Lord, the MIGHTY ONE!” Our God can save our today and tomorrow. Call on Him. Commit Psalm 119:147 to heart, “I rise before dawn and cry for help; I wait for Your words.” Learn ways you can call on the Mighty God by getting a copy of my book, Pray with Purpose, Live with Passion.

Better Than Mighty Mouse

When you were a child, did you watch the cartoon, “Mighty Mouse”?  Do you remember the chorus,  “Here I come to save the day! That means that Mighty Mouse is on the way!”  When I was young, I was confident Mighty Mouse would save the day no matter the dire situation. Growing older doesn’t mean we no longer need someone to save us. We do. We need someone to save us from sin. We need someone to save us from fear. We need someone to save us from being physically, financially, emotionally, and spiritually overtaken. Unlike a cartoon character, the One on whom we call is real. Joshua 22:22 proclaims, “The MIGHTY ONE, God, the Lord, the MIGHTY ONE, God, the Lord!” Our God can save our today and tomorrow. He is the MIGHTY ONE. Call on Him. Commit Psalm 119:147 to heart, “I rise before dawn and cry for help; I wait for Your words.” The Mighty One is near. Call on Him to save your day.

Heavenly Father, help us be mindful that YOU ARE THE MIGHTY ONE who saves our day no matter the dire situation. Help us confidently wait for Your words on our hearts to guide us though each situation. 

Call on Him

08/17/2019
Friends, I’ve missed you!  I was in an area with no cell service last week. Glad to be back. 
  
When you were a child, did you watch the cartoon, “Mighty Mouse”?  Do you remember the chorus,  “Here I come to save the day! That means that Mighty Mouse is on the way!”

When I was young and watched “Mighty Mouse,” I believed he would “save the day.” Growing older doesn’t mean we no longer need someone to “save the day.” We do. We need someone to save us from our sins. We need someone to call on when we’re fearful.  We need someone to call on when life overwhelms us. We need someone to call on when physical, financial, or spiritual darkness consumes us. But unlike an imaginary cartoon character, the One on whom we call is real. Joshua 22:22 states, “The MIGHTY ONE, God, the Lord, the MIGHTY ONE, God, the Lord!” In other words, our God has, can, and will save our today, our tomorrow, and our eternity. He is thee MIGHTY ONE! Call on Him. Commit Psalm 119:147 to heart. Find comfort in it. “I rise before dawn and cry for help; I wait for Your words.”

Heavenly Father, help us be ever mindful that YOU ARE THE MIGHTY ONE WHO saves our day. May we confidently say, “We’re not worrying at all; we’re just listening for Your call.”

Praise to the MIGHTY ONE

 When you were a child, did you watch the cartoon, “Mighty Mouse”?  Do you remember the chorus,  “Here I come to save the day! That means that Mighty Mouse is on the way!”

When I was young and watched “Mighty Mouse,” I believed he would “save the day.” Growing older doesn’t mean we no longer need someone to “save the day.” We do. We need someone to save us from our sins. We need someone to call on when we’re fearful.  We need someone to call on when life overwhelms us. We need someone to call on when physical, financial, or spiritual darkness consumes us. But unlike an imaginary cartoon character, the One on whom we call is real. Our God has, can, and will save the day – our day today, our day tomorrow, and our day for eternity. How? Why? Because He is the MIGHTY ONE, God, the Lord!

MIGHTY ONE, Lord God, help us be increasingly mindful that YOU ARE THE MIGHTY ONE WHO HAS COME TO SAVE THE DAY. May it be said of us, “We’re not worrying at all; we’re just listening for Your call.”

MIGHTY ONE

 “The Mighty One, God, the Lord, the Mighty One, God, the Lord!”
Joshua 22:22

Did you ever watch the cartoon, Mighty Mouse?  The theme song said it all,

“Here I come to save the day! That means that Mighty Mouse is on the way!

Yes sir, when there is a wrong to right, Mighty Mouse will join the fight!

On the sea or on the land, He’s got the situation well in hand!

We know that when there’s danger, we’ll never despair;

Because we know that when there’s danger he is there…

On the land on the sea in the air.

 We’re not worrying at all

We just listen for his call

“Here I come to save the day!”

That means that Mighty Mouse is on the way.*

When I was young and watched that cartoon, I believed Mighty Mouse would save the day. Now, I know better. And, like Joshua, tune in instead to “the Mighty One, God, the Lord, the Mighty One, God, the Lord!” 

MIGHTY ONE, God, the Lord, help me to stay tuned to the true words that YOU ARE THE MIGHTY ONE WHO HAS COME TO SAVE THE DAY. May it be said of me, “I’m not worrying at all; I’m just listening for Your call.”
