Chapter-a-Day Psalm 111

Coffeemaker 004 All his products are guaranteed to last— Never out-of-date, never obsolete, rust-proof. Psalm 111:7 (MSG)

I have a Capresso coffee maker that Wendy gave me for a birthday gift almost two years ago. It's a high end one that has a combination burr grinder and coffee maker in one unit. She went out of her way to save up and get me this coffee maker. I use it every morning before I sit down to have a little quiet time with God and write this post.

The grinder and coffee maker work flawlessly. The LED display, however, began to wear out just before it was a year old. I couldn't read how many cups I was brewing or when the auto-start time was set to turn it on in the morning. I called to complain and the manufacturer asked me to send it in. To their credit, they sent me a new one with no questions asked. It's about 9 months old and the LED display is, once again, going out. Even high end stuff wears out over time, I guess.

I look around my house at all that was once shiny and new. Everything wears out, wears down, and eventually falls apart. God, however, has never worn out. Since I was 14, when I first stepped foot on this narrow foot path and started my faith journey, God has never gotten old, obsolete or out-of-date. I never get tired of his presence and faithfulness. His grace, forgiveness, mercy, love, and provision have never worn out, no matter how much I stretch it, use it, abuse it and put it to the test.

To paraphrase the prophet, Jeremiah, the things of God are brand spankin' new every morning.

One thought on “Chapter-a-Day Psalm 111”

  1. All his products are guaranteed to last—
    Never out-of-date, never obsolete, rust-proof.
    Who doesn’t want a lifetime guarantee? That pushes many people to buy a particular product. Really? You warantee for the life of the product? Sign me up! That’s God. Sign me up.
