Sportsmen's Devotional

Bible Study Verses
 II Peter 3:12-14 
While you wait and earnestly long for (expect and hasten) the coming of the day of God by reason of which the flaming heavens will be dissolved, and the [ material] elements [of the universe] will flare and melt with fire? But we look for new heavens and a new earth according to His promise, in which righteousness (uprightness, freedom from sin, and right standing with God) is to abide. So, beloved, since you are expecting these things, be eager to be found by Him [at His coming] without spot or blemish and at peace [in serene confidence, free from fears and agitating passions and moral conflicts]. (Amplified)

Thoughts
Moonlit nights and campfires are one of the best parts of the hunt. I remember a fall turkey hunt, sitting around the campfire on one of those moonlit nights, talking with my son until 2 AM. We were talking about the future, his future; and at that moment in his life, it seemed very uncertain.

Uncertainty in our lives can breed fear and loss of hope, if we let it. As I recall that time, some 18 years later, things have turned out very good. I have a son in whom I am very proud, a wonderful daughter-in-law and a very beautiful granddaughter. All of that worry for nothing, like the sparks that flew up from the fire into the night sky, only to disappear.
(Byron S)

Action Point
Titus 2:13 tells us to look for the blessed hope and the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Christ Jesus. Jesus is our Hope. He tells us not to worry, but rather, to lay our burdens on Him. In Proverbs 16:3 He says, "Roll your works upon the Lord [commit and trust them wholly to Him; He will cause your thoughts to become agreeable to His will, and] so shall your plans be established and succeed," (Amplified).

So, why do we worry over what tomorrow will bring? Instead, let's put all our faith and trust in Him who is faithful, and then watch--be amazed--at what the future holds. Read your Bible every day and let His light shine on your future.

Sportsmen's Tip of the Day
Always make sure to carry something in your pack to start a fire. Waterproof matches in a sealed container and propane lighter are good choices.

Another tip for making a fire: Put sawdust in the sections of an egg carton; pour paraffin over the sawdust, break the sections apart and put them in baggies. These will start a fire when it's wet. A hot fire feels so good when you get soaked in the rain.
