In today’s digital world, it’s sometimes difficult to keep up with the abbreviated terminology that accompanies today’s fast-paced, youth-oriented electronic communication. For example, in the “Instant Messaging” (IM) world, the text-message language, “laughing out loud” becomes “lol.” The phrase, “By the way” becomes “btw.” And regrettably, some people are using “omg” for “Oh, my God!”
Paul made reference to the Lord being at hand (Philippians 4:5). There is certainly a peace and great comfort in knowing that such is a reality. Think of the assurance of having help nearby. This is promise from Him who is faithful (Hebrews 10:23). No wonder Peter described the promises of God as precious (2 Peter 1:4). Notice with me some of these monumental occasions when the Lord is at hand and we are so very thankful for it.
