Psalms 92:14. They bear fruit even when they are old; they are filled with vitality and have many leaves.

I hear so many people in their older years say there is nothing new, they have read and studied the Bible all they need to, they have grown spiritually all they need to, they have served God all they need. They seem to think they have laurels to sit on and the younger people should take over. How sad for them. As a living being we either continue to grow or we shrivel and die. Growing and serving are bring life. We can never grow into the likeness of our Creator too much or serve Him enough. Regardless of our physical condition there is always some service we can do for the glory of our God. I am always so blessed when I see people who have to struggle just to walk into church come and join believers of all ages to worship God and encourage each other. I am blessed with confidence when I know a 90+ person is interceding on my behalf. Our question is how will we choose to age? We can become all-knowing and self-centered or we can continue to grow into the image of our Creator. The choice is ours.

Ephesians 4:22 You were taught with reference to your former way of life to lay aside a the old man who is being corrupted in accordance with deceitful desires,

I have written a devotion on this blog every day for about 4 years.  That doesn’t count the ones published  before this blog.  Sometimes I’m tired and I think about reposting an old devotion.  I can’t do that.  Each day is a day that I grow closer to my Lord.  Each day some of the fruits of His Holy Spirit grow a little within me.  If we are the same tomorrow as we are today we have waisted a day, a day that God would give us more growth in Him.  Any testamony about what God did in and through us in the past is outdated   Our question is what is God doing in and through us this very day?  What are we going to allow Him to do?  Are we willing to be the pliable clay for Him to continue to mold and shapePL acording to His will and purpose or are we going to be like dried out clay, not able to be shapen afresh?  The choice is ours.  God is waiting each and every day
