The LORD Sustains

The LORD Sustains

We know the feeling of,  “Oh no!     I’ve sinned again.     I’m not right  in this.    I have no way  to make this really right again.”

We cannot hide  our sins  from the Lord.     We might  be able  to hide some  of our sins  from other people  for awhile,  but it usually doesn’t take long  before they know.     They might not say anything,  but they know we’ve all sinned.

The Lord knows all things before,  during and after our sin.     There is nothing  we can cover up  from His eyes.     But,  when we are sorry  and confess our sins  to our heavenly Father,  we experience  His love  and mercy.     King David wrote  in Psalm 145:14,

The LORD  sustains all  who fall.
And raises up all  who are bowed down.

This is very important  for everyone  to know.     Whatever our sin,  God is able  to sustain us  with His mercy  and kindness.     God knows how our sinful natures  overcome us,  and for Jesus’ sake,  He willingly helps us  to get a grip  on reality again.

This does not mean  we can belligerently continue  in sin,  because David explains  that the LORD  “raises up all  who are bowed down.”     God does not raise up  the arrogant  and rebellious  —  just those  who humbly bow down  before Him  and ask  for forgiveness.     Those  who admit their sin  and desire  to change  are raised up.     God will give us a clean heart  and a right spirit  when that is our desire.

That is the free gift God greatly desires  to give  to all.     Let us daily confess  our sins  and ask  for our heavenly Father’s forgiveness  —  along with His sustaining a clean heart  and right spirit  within us.     Only God can strengthen us  in this way.     No one  can have a clean heart  and right spirit  with their own efforts.     We must depend  on the Lord  for this blessing.

Then  in the strength  and freedom  God’s forgiveness  gives us,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     Lord,  Your love  is almighty.     Thank You  for loving us.”

Love,
Margaret

Give Me Understanding That I May Observe Your Law

Give Me Understanding  That I May Observe  Your Law

Psalm 119:34
Give me understanding,  that I may observe Your law,
And keep it  with all my heart.

The writer  of this psalm  knew  some very important facts  about himself.     He knew that he liked  to have good things happen  to himself  and that he definitely wanted  to avoid everything  that would have dire consequences.

He also knew  that the LORD  is holy  and good.     The LORD did everything  so wonderfully well  and was a trusted source  of help  for him.     Therefore,  he looked  to God  as a small child looks  to his father  and wants  to be just like his beloved father.     The psalmist desired  to be a good child  of God  just because it was so obvious  that God  was his ideal  in every respect.     All God’s love,  kindness,  purity,  mercy,  faithfulness,  patience,  and trustworthiness  were aspects  that the psalmist held dear  and admired.

All these aspects  of God’s being  are something we,  also,  need  to hold dear.     We need  to realize these truths  about the Lord,  so that our natural tendency  to sin  can be held  in check.     As we come  to love  and honor God,  we will want  to be like Him  in all our ways.

“Understanding”  is a gift  from God.     Only God can open  our hearts  and minds  to realize  the difference  between right  and wrong  —  good and evil.     That is why  we must pray  for “understanding”.     When King David wanted  to be  in step  with God,  he used different words  as he prayed  in Psalm 51:10-12,

Create  in me  a clean heart,  O God,
And renew  a steadfast spirit  within me.
Do not cast me away  from Your presence,
And do not take Your Holy Spirit  from me.
Restore to me  the joy  of Your salvation,
And sustain me  with a willing spirit.

The  “willing spirit”  is a spirit  that “understands”.     The “understanding” spirit  is  “steadfast”  and true  because it is the  “Holy Spirit” working  in our hearts.     When the “Holy Spirit” works  in our hearts,  we come  to know the  “joy of Your salvation”.

Asking  for understanding  is a daily necessity  because every day  we face  so many different scenarios  that can lead us  into sin.     With “understanding”  we will be able  to use good judgment  and remain steadfast  in the truths  of God.     All that  will keep us close  to God  and assure our salvation  as we are enabled  to retain  our faith  in Jesus.

Understanding strengthens  our love  for the LORD  and gives us the peace  we need  as we journey  through this life.     With joy  we say,  “Hallelujah!     Lord,  thank You  for gladly  giving us the understanding  we need  as we learn  to walk  according to Your love  in Christ Jesus.”

Love,
Margaret

If Then You Cannot Do Even a Very Little Thing

October 29, 2014

Post 2014 10 29 Sparrow

If Then  You Cannot Do  Even a Very Little Thing

The sparrows love  to sing  on the fence  near my kitchen window.     So,  as I do dishes  or prepare a meal,  I enjoy having them serenade  and watch me.     They are so dependent  on God  for all their needs.     With their necessity  to be dependent  upon the Lord,  they just take one day  at a time  and let their blessings  come from God.

They aren’t able  to cultivate the ground  for a crop  of seeds.     They aren’t able  to build storage barns  for their winter food supply.     They simply take one day  at a time  with a trust  in God’s provision.     How very unlike us.     And so,  we listen  to Jesus  as He teaches us  in Luke 12:22-26,

Do not be anxious  for your life,  as to what you shall eat;  nor for your body,  as to what you shall put on.     For life  is more than food,  and the body than clothing.

Consider the ravens,  for they neither sow  nor reap;  and they have no storeroom  nor barn;  and yet God feeds them;  how much more valuable  you are  than the birds!

And which  of you  by being anxious  can add a single cubit  to his life’s span?     If then  you cannot do  even a very little thing,  why are you anxious  about other matters?

There is so much  we cannot do.     We are not able  to give ourselves life —  we did not  create ourselves.     We cannot give ourselves  a special talent  in music,  math,  mechanics,  or whatever.     We have  to work  with the talents  and blessings God  has given us.

Let us humbly consider  all the things  we cannot do.     And then,  realize  that God does all that  and so much more.     He alone  is the Almighty  —  not any  of us.     All of nature  is a creation  of God  according to  all His wisdom  and love.     We see  how He has tenderly cared  for everything.     In the depths  of His care  for us,  Jesus suffered  and died,  so that our sins  could be paid for  in full  by faith  in His atoning blood.

God wants us  to learn  to trust Him  —  God expects us  to get a grip  on the reality  of our human situation  and humbly trust Him.     Faith,  hope,  and love  will help us  to rest  in our heavenly Father’s arms.

In the peace  of acknowledging  God’s loving care  and discipline,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     Lord,  in Your care,  we are free  to sing  —  just like the sparrows.”

 

Love,
Margaret

But If You Have Bitter Jealousy and Selfish Ambition

October 28, 2014

.

Post 2013 06 13 IMG_1767

But  If You Have  Bitter Jealousy  and Selfish Ambition

“Bitter jealousy  and selfish ambition”  rob people  of the peace  they often long for.     A person might not even quite realize  that these are the things  that are ruining their happiness.     They become jealous  when another person  has something  they would like  —  when they imagine  that another person  has more  than they have  —  or when they dislike another person  and don’t want them  to have anything.     Their “selfish ambition”  might simply be based  on them imagining  that they are better  than others  and deserve  to have more  of everything.

When a Christian person  is trapped  by  “bitter jealousy  and selfish ambition”,  they need  to prayerfully consider  what God’s word says  in James 3:12-18,

Can a fig tree,  my brethren,  produce olives,  or a vine produce figs?     Nor can salt water  produce fresh.

Who among you  is wise  and understanding?     Let him show  by his good behavior  his deeds  in the gentleness  of wisdom.     But if you have  bitter jealousy  and selfish ambition  in your heart,  do not be arrogant  and so lie  against the truth.

This wisdom  is not that  which comes down  from above,  but is earthly,  natural,  demonic.     For where jealousy  and selfish ambition exist,  there is disorder  and every evil thing.    

But the wisdom  from above  is first pure,  then peaceable,  gentle,  reasonable,  full of mercy  and good fruits,  unwavering,  without hypocrisy.     And the seed  whose fruit  is righteousness  is sown  in peace  by those  who make peace.

James is explaining  that if one imagines  that they are  “wise  and understanding”  as a Christian,  they really must prove it  with their honest  “good behavior” —  “in the gentleness  of wisdom”.          Christian  “wisdom”  leads us to know  that we are sinners,  who need  to constantly  look to our Lord  and Savior  in faith,  hope,  and love.     In other words,  we must have faith  that God will provide  for our real needs  as He knows best.     We put our hope  in God’s promises  of eternal life,  realizing that the things  on earth are as nothing  in comparison  to eternal life.     And,  as Christ has loved us,  we are to honestly love one another.

James tenderly warns all Christians,  “For where jealousy  and selfish ambition exist,  there is disorder  and every evil thing.”     How true that is.     “Jealousy  and selfish ambition”  are the opposite  of faith,  hope,  and love.     When we put our full trust  in God,  always looking  to Him  in prayer  and praise,  He will lead us in  “the wisdom  from above”.     God  will show us  how we can keep our lives “pure”  —  be  “peaceable” in trusting God’s ways  for us  —  be  “gentle”  in our attitude towards others  —  be  “reasonable” in all our desires  as we trust God’s wisdom  —  be “full  of mercy  and good fruits”  as we live with others  —  be  “unwavering” in faith  —  and totally  “without hypocrisy”  as we rejoice  when God blesses others.

Resting  in peace,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     LORD,  thank You  for preserving us  in Your wisdom.”

Love,
Margaret

You Know That Our Prosperity Depends Upon This Business

October 27, 2014

.

Post_2010_11_18_IMG_0710

You Know  That Our Prosperity  Depends  Upon This Business

We know  how important  our economy is.     If nobody cares  to buy a certain product,  that business  will soon die.     We can list tons  of businesses  that have died off  over the years.     Their products  are no longer needed  or desirable.     Much better products  have been invented  and developed.     There is no longer a desire  for the old time records  with the record players  that needed  to be cranked up  by hand.     We now have DVDs  with better sound,  size,  and convenience.

This was the problem  of Demetrius,  the silversmith,  “who made silver shrines  of Artemis”  for the people  to worship.     (Acts 19:22-41)     Christianity was spreading fast.     People were coming  to faith  in Christ Jesus  as their Savior  from sin.     When one honestly trusts  in Jesus,  there is no need  or even the slightest desire  for a silly man-made idol.

Demetrius gathered  other idol craftsmen  and said  in Acts 19:25,

“You know  that our prosperity depends  upon this business.”

According to Demetrius,  the apostle Paul  was the instigator  of his problem.     After all,  Paul was preaching   “that gods made  with hands  are no gods at all.”     (Acts 19:26)     Demetrius also loved his reputation  (Don’t we all?),  and did not want  to feel ashamed,  so he added  in Acts 19:27,

Not only is there danger  that this trade  of ours fall  into disrepute,  but also  that the temple  of the great goddess Artemis  be regarded  as worthless  and that she whom all  of Asia  and the world worship  will even be dethroned  from her magnificence.

That possibility  filled the idol worshipers  with rage.     They didn’t want  to be in  “disrepute”  or have their goddess  “regarded as worthless”.     So,  a whole crowd was gathered,  and “the majority did not know  for what reason  they had come together.”     (Acts 19:32)     That’s how riots begin.     There is no understanding  —  just confusion  and hot tempers  over all sorts  of misinformation.

The town clerk  finally quieted the people  and dismissed the crowd,  warning them  that all such matters should  “be settled  in the lawful assembly.”     (Acts 19:39)

All this happened because  —  “You know  that our prosperity  depends  upon this business.”     Money is the name  of the underlying game.     This is exactly the way  it is  with Halloween.     It stems  from heathen superstitions  —  but businesses love it  because  “You know  that our prosperity depends  upon this business.”

In actuality,  if Christ Jesus  is honestly  believed in  and totally trusted  to be our honest-to-goodness Savior  because He definitely  is the fulfillment  of all the Old Testament prophecies  regarding our Savior,  we should all  be causing Halloween  to  “fall  into disrepute”.     It really should be “regarded  as worthless”  by every single Christian.

Looking  at the truths  behind every celebrated,  worldly tradition  —  and looking  at the truths  of Jesus  being the fulfillment  of all God’s prophecies regarding our Savior  —  we say,  “Hallelujah!     Lord God,  our Savior,  Your salvation  is worth much more  than all the gold  and silver  in the whole world.”

Love,
Margaret

Considering the Reproach of Christ Greater Riches

October 26, 2014

.

Post 2013 12 30 IMG_1932

Considering  the Reproach  of Christ  Greater Riches

We make many choices  in our lifetime  —  some good and wise,  and others not so good  or wise.     Moses made a choice  that affected  his eternal life  —  as does absolutely everybody  that has ever lived.     Hebrews 11:24-26 tells  about Moses choice,

By faith  Moses,  when he had grown up,  refused  to be called the son  of Pharaoh’s daughter,  choosing rather  to endure ill-treatment  with the people  of God  than to enjoy the passing pleasures  of sin,  considering the reproach  of Christ  greater riches  than the treasures  of Egypt;  for he was looking  to the reward.

Since Pharaoh’s daughter raised Moses  in the palace  of Pharaoh,  he grew up  having the best  of the best  of everything  to be had.     Because Moses’  real mother became his nursemaid  (Exodus chapter 2),  Moses also got to be raised  in the true faith,  without Pharaoh’s family actually realizing it.     Then the big choice was laid  in his lap.     He could spend this life  in luxury  amongst royalty  —  or  he could choose  to live  as a lowly Hebrew,  a follower  of the LORD God Almighty.

Many people  in this world choose the riches  of this world  over leading a tough life  of faith  in the LORD.     They gleefully imagine  that their choice  is a no-brainer.       Having popularity,  money,  and every sort  of pleasure  right now  just seems more desirable  than some far-off hope  for heaven  and a life  with God.

But,  Hebrews says  that Moses was very willing  to  “endure ill-treatment  with the people  of God”.     Why?     Because he was wisely  considering  the reproach  of Christ greater riches  than the treasure  of Egypt”.     Because Moses’ mother  had a hand  in raising him,  he had a good,  strong upbringing  in the true faith.     His mother taught him  that the LORD  had promised  a Savior  —  the “Christ”  —  and that this  “Christ” would bring salvation  to every believer  in the whole world.     Moses knew  that in choosing the coming Christ,  he would be given  eternal life  through faith.

The “reward”  of heaven  is so awesomely wonderful  that it doesn’t matter  if we undergo  “ill-treatment”  of any sort  here on earth.     Truly,  enduring  the reproach  of Christ”   “by faith”  will give all believers  “greater riches  than the treasures  of Egypt”  and  “greater riches”  than all the riches  in the whole wide world.

As Moses came  to have  “faith”  by learning  from his mother,  we can come to  “faith”  and grow  in “faith”  by learning  from God’s word  in the Bible.     As 1 John 2:27 says,

As for you,  the anointing  which you received  from Him  abides in you,  and you have no need  for anyone  to teach you;  but as His anointing teaches you  about all things,  and is true  and is not a lie,  and just as it has taught you,  you abide  in Him.

“Considering  the reproach  of Christ  greater riches”,  we open up His word  and grow in faith,  saying,  “Hallelujah!      LORD,  thank You  for leading us  in Your eternal word.”

Love,
Margaret

For Everyone Who Kills You to Think

October 25, 2014

.

Post 2014 04 18 Good Friday heart IMG_1952

For Everyone  Who Kills You  to Think

There are many instances  when a person imagines  they are serving the LORD God  when they kill a Christian  or  hinder biblical teachings.     This should not surprise  or puzzle us  because Jesus told His followers  this would happen.     Jesus taught  in John 16:1-4,

These things  I have spoken  to you  so that you may be kept  from stumbling.     They will make you outcasts  from the synagogue,  but an hour is coming  for everyone  who kills you  to think  that he is offering service  to God.     These things  they will do  because they have not known  the Father  or Me.

But these things  I have spoken  to you,  so that when their hour comes,  you may remember  that I told you  of them.

This prophecy  from Jesus  is to strengthen us, so that we  “may be kept  from stumbling”.     When we face harassment,  threats,  and even death  for our faith  in Christ Jesus,  we need  to  “remember”  Jesus’ teaching.     From the very beginning  of Christianity,  Christians have been killed, tortured,  and harassed  because  of their faith.     Even the Old Testament children of God  were killed  and tortured.

One might sadly wonder  why these hateful people  are so adamant  in trying  to destroy Christianity.     Jesus said  the bottom line is  “because  they have not known  the Father  or Me.”     They might strongly insist  that they do know  the one true God  —  but, the sad truth is  that they don’t accept  God’s word  in the Bible.

There are archeological proofs  of all that is  in the Bible  —  manuscripts,  historical accounts,  and agreement between various manuscripts  that have been found.     Not only that,  but Isaiah 40:8  assures us,

The grass withers,  the flower fades,
But the word  of our God stands forever.

It is God’s promise  that He will keep His word  for us “forever”.     This is the word  of God  that unbelievers  refuse to accept.     Therefore Jesus says,  “They have not known  the Father  or Me.”     They cannot see  that Jesus is  the perfect fulfillment  of all the Old Testament prophecies  of the Savior.     They don’t know  of anyone else  who has been the fulfillment  of all the Old Testament prophecies  —  because it’s impossible  for any mere human  to be such a marvelous fulfillment.

Nevertheless,  they choose  to violently oppose  the eternal truths  of God  that have been proven  through history.     They will believe  a sinful instigator of hatred,  who has not proven his trustworthiness  —  but they won’t believe  God’s proven word.     They won’t even accept God’s offer  of love  and forgiveness  through faith  in Christ Jesus,  so that they might receive eternal life.

Jesus has told us  it would be this way.     Since His word  is proven,  we are to just “remember”  all that He taught  —  and let all His words  keep us  “from stumbling”.

Remembering Christ’s loving sacrifice  for our sins,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     LORD,  thank You  for Your patient love  and forgiveness.”

Love,
Margaret
