Your Teacher Will No Longer Hide

Your Teacher Will No Longer Hide

There’s something very righteous  about the LORD God,  our Savior.     He will not push Himself  on us.     He is always nearby — even when we are sinning  big time.     He is always giving us inklings  of His grace and mercy  that are freely available to us,  as a reminder  of His faithful love — but,  He does not force an unwilling person  to trust and believe  in His salvation  through Jesus Christ.

Even though we might have gotten entangled  in some really gross sin,  God’s eternal word  in  James 4:8  is a promise being held out  to every one of us.     It says,

Draw near to God  and He will draw near  to you.

 The Israelites experienced this truth  during the time  of Isaiah’s preaching.     They had been sickeningly rebellious  in living like idol worshipers.     When they heard  Isaiah’s preaching and warning,  they stubbornly tried  to run away from God  so they could do things  their way.     They told God’s prophets  to basically  shut up their mouths.     They were tired  of hearing preachers  tell them  how to live.

In spite of their rebellion,  God still longed  to be gracious  and merciful to them.     So,  to discipline them  in love,  the LORD caused  all the idolatrous things they loved  to fall apart.     Instead of finding satisfaction  in their rebellious ways,  they found fears  and disasters.     As their enemies hotly pursued them,  God quietly reminded them  of His faithful love.

God had refused  to answer their prayers  when they insisted  on following idolatrous  and worldly ways.     But,  when they drew near  to God,  God was willing  to draw near  to them.     That is when Isaiah 30:20-21  promised,

Although the Lord has given you bread of privation  and water of oppression,  He,  your Teacher,  will no longer hide Himself,  but your eyes  will behold your Teacher.     And your ears  will hear a word  behind you,  “This is the way,  walk in it.” 

Over all these years,  God has not changed.    He is still  “the same yesterday  and today,  yes and forever.”     (Hebrews 13:8)     When the Israelites turned back  to God,  our heavenly Father gladly showed them the way  to safety  in His arms.

When we have sinned  and want to turn back to God  for forgiveness  and help,  the same promise stands  for us.     We need  to be strengthened  in this truth,  so that we may be nurtured  in the love of God.     That is why Jesus promises us  in John 16:13,

But when He,  the Spirit of truth,  comes,  He will guide you  into all the truth.

We need the truth  of God’s love  and salvation  in Christ Jesus.     We cannot live  without this truth.     Let us not run away  from the truth,  but, let us embrace the truth  and find our peace  in the love of God.

Then we say,  “Hallelujah!     Lord,  You have promised  to guide and keep us  when we turn to You.     Let us not be afraid  of turning to You.     Our guilt makes us fearful,  but,  Your love is overflowing  with promises  of forgiveness and guidance.     Strengthen us  to rightly turn back  to You.”

Love,
Margaret

His Lovingkindness Is Everlasting

December 11, 2018

.

His Lovingkindness Is Everlasting

When we are caught  in the rat trap of busyness,  a disaster,  an illness,  financial problems,  or whatever,  we forget.     We forget  that God is almighty.     We forget all  that has been related to us  in the Bible.     We even forget all the blessings  God has given us.

Trapped in the whirlwind  of “I gotta do this and that,”   “______ is expecting me to ……,”   “How will I ever get through this?”   “I don’t have any other options.     What can I do?”  —  everything is centered on ourselves  —  I,  me,  my,  mine  — what egocentrism!

Of course we don’t have the power  or ability  to overcome every problem  in life.     But, God does.     And,  He wants us  to come to Him  with hearts  that are filled  with thanksgiving  for all the things  He has done for us — even from the beginning of time.     That’s true  because God’s promise  of a Savior  was first made  in the Garden of Eden  and He even had us today  in mind  when that promise was made.     God centers on loving us — undeserving  though we are.

So,  it is only good and right  that even today  we thank God  for all the wonderful things  He did  that are  recorded in the Bible.     They were all done  for our benefit  as they teach us  to trust in the lovingkindness  of God.

All of Psalm 136 is a song of thanksgiving.     Much of it recalls specific events  in the lives  of the Israelites.     When we are trapped in despair,  we can especially recall verses 1-9,  to help us remember  just a few  of the evidences  of God’s love for us.     It reads,

Give thanks  to the LORD,   for He is good,    
For His lovingkindness is everlasting.    
Give thanks  to the God of gods,    
For His lovingkindness is everlasting.    
Give thanks  to the Lord of lords,    
For His lovingkindness is everlasting.    
To Him who alone does great wonders,    
For His lovingkindness is everlasting;    
To Him  who made the heavens with skill,    
For His lovingkindness is everlasting;    
To Him  who spread out the earth  above the waters,    
For His lovingkindness is everlasting;    
To Him  who made the great lights,    
For His lovingkindness is everlasting;   
The sun  to rule by day,    
For His lovingkindness is everlasting,    
The moon and stars  to rule by night,    
For His lovingkindness is everlasting.

We get the picture.     The overwhelming truth  of all matters  in this life is that  His lovingkindness  is everlasting.”     We dare not overlook this proven fact  as we face our dilemmas  and even just “bad hair days”.     In all things,  the LORD is God and He loves us very dearly.     We can and should  entrust our every need  into His almighty lovingkindness  because there simply is no other power  that can help us.     There is no other god  or lord  or creator or savior or almighty.

After all,  the LORD God loves us so dearly  Jesus suffered and died  to pay the penalty  for our sins.     If that isn’t love — what is?     So,  God is the one  we should center on.

Remembering and appreciating “His lovingkindness”,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     My Lord,  I have to admit  Your lovingkindness has done many wonderful things  for me.     Forgive all my anxieties.     Thank You for faithfully loving and caring for me.     Let me live for You.”

Love,
Margaret

An Inheritance

December 10, 2018

.

An Inheritance

Have you ever received  an inheritance?     Maybe it was in the form of land,  a house,  money,  or some other item  that was special to you  and the deceased.     Some of the little special things we’ve inherited  include World War II memorabilia,  marbles my Dad received for Christmas  during the time he spent  in an orphanage  in the late 1800’s,  books,  cuff links,  hat pins,  pictures,  keys,  crocheted items,  etc.,  all from the 1800’s and early 1900’s.     To me,  it’s all nostalgic  and brings back many memories,  so I enjoy displaying these items  in a curio cabinet.

None of this “stuff” will have the same value  to whoever inherits our belongings  after we die.     All of this inheritance will continue  to deteriorate  and will soon be gone forever.     We can’t take any of it  with us  upon our death.     As Job 1:21 says,

Naked I came  from my mother’s womb,    
And naked I shall return there.    
The LORD gave  and the LORD  has taken away.    
Blessed be the name  of the LORD.

The point is  that there is nothing  on this earth  that we get to keep forever…….  EXCEPT……. for our promised inheritance  from God Almighty.     The apostle Peter talks  about our special,  reserved  inheritance  in 1 Peter 1:3-5,

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,  who according to His great mercy  has caused us  to be born again  to a living hope  through the resurrection of Jesus Christ  from the dead,  to obtain  an inheritance  which is imperishable  and undefiled  and will not fade awayreserved in heaven for you,  who are protected  by the power of God  through faith   for a salvation  ready to be revealed  in the last time.

We do have  “an inheritance”  that will never rot away  or get defiled  by the sins  in this world.     Neither will this inheritance ever fade away  into oblivion.     It’s actually “reserved  in heaven  for you.”      That means our names have been appointed  to receive this wondrous inheritance  because of our faith  in the merits  of Jesus Christ.

This inheritance is worth more  than everything  in the whole wide world  because it is  “imperishable  and undefiled  and will not fade away.”     The whole world is going  to perish — and this world certainly is defiled  with all sorts  of gross sins.     But,  our inheritance  from God  will last forever and ever and ever,  in purity  and holiness.     There will be no end  to all the joys  for every single person  who puts their faith  in Jesus Christ,  as our Savior  from sin.

We are to continue living  as God’s dear children  and He will protect us  in the true faith  until we reach our heavenly home — our inheritance.

We can enjoy  whatever blessings God allows us  here on earth,  but in the same breath,  we need  to always remember  that  everything here  is a passing thing.     There’s no sense  in setting our hearts  on  anything  in this world.     The only worthwhile thing we have  is our salvation  in Jesus Christ.     That will never  “fade away.”

Joyfully holding  onto our faith,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     Lord,  thank You  for preparing our inheritance  for us  in heaven  and proving the trustworthiness  of Your promise  to bring us home.”

Love,
Margaret

Your Word

December 9, 2018

.

Your Word

We often make contrasts.    There is day and night — light and dark — truth and lies — good and evil — beautiful and ugly — large and small —- young and old.     These are all so obvious.     In some cases  we can appreciate both  of the contrasting things,  like day time with the sun sifting through the trees  and night time with the stars sparkling on high  or  young,  like a newborn babe  and old,  like the silver-haired grandpa  telling stories from the olden days.

In other cases, it is very important that we choose  to adhere to what is good and safe  for us  in God’s sight.     If we choose to love lies  over the truth,  we’re in big time trouble  for all eternity.     The same goes for loving evil  over all that is good.

Ho-hum!     Yawn!    Everybody thinks they don’t need any help  in choosing what they want.     But,  God begs to differ.     People obviously need help  in choosing what is good,  right,  and yes,  holy.     Our natural inclination  is for something  “different”,  “more interesting”,  “more exciting”.

We see so many today flocking  to new religions  that are cultic  and even seeking adventures  in old-time idol worship.     People have been doing the same thing  for thousands of years.     God pointed this out  through Jeremiah,  when He said  in Jeremiah 23:28,

“The prophet  who has a dream  may relate his dream,  but let him  who has My word  speak My word  in truth.     What does straw  have in common  with grain?”  declares the LORD.

In that context,  God tells how these dream relaters  boasted of their dreams  for the sole purpose  of distracting the people  away from God  and into following idols.     These dreamers  longed for people  to follow them  and admire their dreams — over and above the word of God.

God says  that everyone who claims  to have God’s word  must  “speak My word  in truth.”     The Lord will not tolerate those who love  to twist God’s word  to fit their fancy.     Sure,  egotistical dreamers have been twisting God’s word  for thousands of years — and they seem  to be getting away with it.     After all,  they have a big following.

They mix their dreams  with God’s word.     They mix idol worship  with God’s word.     They mix philosophies  with God’s word.     The end result is not  God’s word.     It’s nothing but deception  and leading people away  from the beauty  of God’s truths  regarding our salvation  in Christ Jesus alone.     God has told  of their eternal destruction.

But,  in the mean time,  we have a choice.     Will we choose truth  over and above  lies?     As God pointed out,  “What does straw have  in common  with grain?”     The false preachers are  in every nook and cranny  of this world.     We need to be aware  of the ugliness  of their lies  and the precious worth  of God’s truths.

Remembering how very much God loves us  in Christ,  we sing in Psalm 119:140,

Your word is very pure,    
Therefore  Your servant loves it.

And we appreciate Peter’s concern for us  in 1 Peter 2:2,

Like newborn babes,  long for the pure milk  of the word,  that by it  you may grow  in respect to salvation.

As we delve into the pure word of God,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     LORD,  thank You  for causing Your word  to be eternal  for our sakes,  that we may have the opportunity  to know and experience  Your salvation  in Jesus Christ,  just as You promised down through the ages.”

Love,
Margaret

The Truth in Love

December 8, 2018

.

The Truth in Love

If we don’t  face the truth  in the love  of God Almighty,  we are easily tricked  into things  that will greatly harm us.     An example is in Exodus 32:1,

Now when the people saw Moses delayed  to come down  from the mountain,  the people assembled about Aaron,  and said to him,  “Come,  make us a god  who will go before us;  as for this Moses,  the man who brought us up  from the land of Egypt,  we do not know  what has become  of him.”

In this event,  Moses was up  on the mountain  receiving the Ten Commandments.     The Israelites did not remember or face the truth  of all that had recently happened  to them.     They could have remembered the truth  of all the ten plagues they saw God perform  against the Egyptians.     They could have remembered the truth  of how God parted the Red Sea  and let them cross through the sea,  while all of Pharaoh’s army  was drowned.

Because they refused  to remember the truth  and stand up  for the truth,  they were fooled  into forming a mob  demanding  that Aaron make a different  “god”  for them.     Because they would not remain  in the truth,  they allowed themselves  to be dragged around  by lies and suffer the consequences  of those lies.     They did not know how  to wait  for God.

How often we,  too,  just cannot wait  for God  to do things  for us  in righteousness and wisdom.     We want our way — and we want it now — so we cannot rest  in the truth  of matters.     We are so anxious,  we don’t trust God’s love and faithfulness.

All of our inability  to wait  shows us our immaturity  in the Lord.     Sure,  we all know  about God  and we believe  in Him,  but we just wish He would hurry up  and do things  our way  for once.     We’re all  in the same situations  and need  to learn  to grow up  in the truth  about God and His righteous ways.

When our hearts are  in a turmoil  just trying  to wait for God,  we can bring to mind  the following verses:

Ephesians 4:15
But  speaking the truth  in love,  we are  to grow up  in all aspects  into Him,  who is the head,  even Christ.

1 Peter 2:2
Like newborn babes,  long  for the pure milk  of the word,  that by it  you may  grow  in respect  to salvation.

2 Peter 3:15
Grow  in the grace and knowledge  of our Lord  and Savior Jesus Christ.     To Him  be the glory,  both now  and to the day  of eternity.     Amen.

The word of God  (the Bible)  is the truth spoken  to us  in love.     It is pure  and is the only way  we can grow up spiritually  in God’s grace  and knowledge.     God is fully able  to help us  and we need  to stay close to Him  in His word  in the Bible,  so that we are open  to His loving care.

Then we can learn  to wait  for God  to do His thing  for us  in righteousness and wisdom.

Resting  in God’s grace,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     Lord,  You do all things well.     Teach me  to live in Your truth  and wait for You.”

Love,
Margaret

For Whom We Have Waited

December 7, 2018

.

For Whom We Have Waited

Waiting…….   and waiting…….   and waiting  is such a hard thing to do.     We feel helpless  because there is nothing we can do — just wait.     Our anxiety level skyrockets  while we simultaneously endure  the heavy burden  of waiting.     We inwardly groan,  “How much longer, Lord?     When can I have some relief and satisfaction?”

Isaiah expressed how Israel groaned  under the burden  of waiting for their relief  from the LORD.     We have prayers that can seem  to go unanswered.     We pray and hope,  and pray some more,  and yet some more.     We have to wait  because we know God answers His children  as they look to Him  in faith,  hope,  and love.     God’s answer may be surprisingly different  from our expectations,  but it will be in love and wisdom  for our eternal good.    God’s answer will bring us joy.

Because the LORD,  our God, is good and righteous  in all His ways,  we can rejoice  as we faithfully wait  for His answer  to our prayers.     That is why Isaiah 25:9  says,

And it will be said  in that day,   
“Behold,  this is our God  for whom we have waited
       that He might save us.   
This is the LORD  for whom we have waited;   
Let us rejoice  and be glad  in His salvation.”

Yes,  we can be glad  in all our waiting  and hoping.     We can be glad  because God has loved us so dearly  that He sent His only begotten Son  to suffer and die  for our sins.     Because God has so compassionately displayed the greatness  of His love  for us,  we know  we can trust Him  to give us everything we need  for our eternal good.

As we wait,  our eyes are on the love  of our heavenly Father,  from whom all blessings flow — and we say,  “Hallelujah!     My Lord,  blessed be Your love  that has loved us  more than any words can express.     Thank You  for always giving me what is best for my eternal good.”

Love,
Margaret

But to the Degree

December 6, 2018

.

But to the Degree

The apostle Peter really committed his life  to the preaching  of the gospel  of Christ.     Peter had experienced the depths  of the meaning  of being totally forgiven  of all his sins.     When Jesus forgave Peter  for his fearful denial  at Jesus’ trial,  Peter realized  what a shame it was  to not trust God.     Never again  would he be afraid  of standing up for the truth.     Peter became so fearless  of the evils in this world  that he even accepted  being crucified upside down  for the sake  of the gospel.

Peter’s bold preaching can be seen  in his writings  as he encourages Christians  to totally live for Christ  in all their ways.     Peter openly told them  that they would have to suffer  when they dared  to speak the truth  about salvation  in Christ Jesus.     Peter did not want his fellow believers  to be surprised or fearful,  so he wrote  in 1 Peter 4:12-14,

Beloved,  do not be surprised  at the fiery ordeal  among you,  which comes upon you  for your testing,  as though  some strange thing  were happening to you;

but to the degree  that you share the sufferings  of Christ,  keep on rejoicing;  so that also  at the revelation  of His glory,  you may rejoice  with exultation.

If you are reviled  for the name of Christ,  you are blessed,  because  the Spirit of glory  and of God  rests upon you.

The  “fiery ordeal”  these early Christians faced  included imprisonment,  beatings,  stoning,  and the lions  in the coliseum.     There are Christians  in parts of the world today  who face similar tortures.      They know they cannot deny the truth  of salvation  in Christ alone.

We most likely have a different  “degree”  of suffering — if,  in fact,  we are actually living  in God’s truths.     In whatever manner we bear suffering  for Christ,  we can and should rejoice.     When we gladly stand up  for Christ  and bear the snide remarks of others,  or a lower grade  in the classroom,  or the cold shoulder,  or whatever it is  that is intended  to hurt us,  we will have more reason than ever  to rejoice  when Jesus comes and reveals all  of His glory.

There will come a day when  “every knee will bow”  (Isaiah 45:23)  and admit  that Jesus is Lord over all.     Every single person  who has been hateful and angry  towards the LORD  will come and worship Him  for who He is.

Let us give ourselves reason  to be rejoicing greatly  on that day,  as we enjoy the wondrous glory  of our Savior,  who has humbled Himself  to suffer and die  for our sins.

If we are reviled and mocked today  for our faith,  we are greatly blessed  because others are  “seeing”  the glory of God  in our lives.    They might not like  seeing Jesus living in our hearts,  but that is something  they will have to deal with.

As our faith is tested,  we rejoice and say,  “Hallelujah!     Lord Jesus,  You have proven Your power  over all things — even over life and death.     Help us to keep our eyes  on You and Your glorious power,  so that we may rejoice  in every trial  we need to face.”

Love,
Margaret
