Good day Plants and Pillars supporters,
I would like to wish you all a very blessed 2020! 2019 was a very good year for Plants and Pillars and has gradually seen our team, as well as our daily visitors, grow! We are grateful you have signed up to receive our daily readings by email and I hope they have been a blessing for you throughout the year.
There will be a few changes in 2020. First off, we have established a promotions as well as a video committee. As such, you will see increased content coming your way soon. We are also very grateful that Mr. Jim Beeke has offered to share his devotional content on the site. Mr. Jim Beeke has served in God’s Kingdom in many different ways and almost without fail, each role he has had has involved youth in some form (Principal, elder, youth camp leader/speaker etc). The devotions he has written are all based on questions youth have asked him over the years. Instead of a daily devotional, we will now be emailing you weekly devotions based on this work. As such, we strongly suggest you get your own daily devotional as well! Please continue to provide your feedback on ways we can make Plants and Pillars better and we hope the site will be richly blessed to you in 2020! I will paste a quick bio and introduction from Mr. Jim Beeke below!

Message from Mr. Jim Beeke:
A Brief Introduction:
These devotional meditations were written in response to questions asked by teens and young adults over my years of being a Bible teacher and principal of a Christian high school, catechism and confession of faith class instructor, and speaker at youth meetings, conferences and camps. I pray that our gracious and almighty Lord may use them in a wider sphere through their being published and posted online, as He has promised, “So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I send it” (Is. 55:11).
As a teen or young adult, I sincerely encourage you to meditate on God’s Word and pray for wisdom to learn and apply its truths (doctrines) for what you learn early in life will be remembered more than when you become older and by the Spirit’s blessing it will guide and bless you on your life’s journey. What a blessing it is when you may confess with the psalmist, “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path” (Ps. 119:105). If these short meditations would be used by the Lord for these purposes and to draw you closer to His Word, the written word, the Bible, and to the Living Word, Jesus Christ, then they will have served their richest purpose!
