Let Them  Bring Me  to Your  Holy Hill

People look  for truth  and meaning in life  in all sorts  of places.     They will travel  the whole world  —  examine all sorts of philosophies  and religions  —  and try  many life styles.     Frankly,  there is only one sure  and proven place  of eternal truth.    God’s word  —  the Bible  —  has proven itself  to be true  over thousands of years.

Pretty simple  and readily available,  isn’t it?     But,  in spite  of God  lovingly  reaching out  to all  of us,  many will turn elsewhere  for peace  and a so-called salvation  —  a supposed closeness  to God  ( or,  in truth,  shall we say “a god”).     Search as they might,  there will never be  a god  other than  the one and only true LORD  and God  over all.

Through the many fulfilled prophesies  concerning our Savior Jesus,  that have spanned thousands  of years,  the LORD has proven  far beyond a doubt  that He alone  is the one and only  LORD of lords  and GOD of gods.     Long before Christ was born,  people figured out  that only the LORD God  was their true strength  and salvation.

In that knowledge  of everlasting truth,  the writer of Psalm 43 wrote  in verses 3-4,

O send out  Your light  and Your truth,  let them lead me;
Let them  bring me  to Your holy hill
And  to Your dwelling places.
Then  I will go  to the altar  of God,
To God  My exceeding joy;
And upon the lyre  I shall praise You,  O God,  my God.

It is only in God’s  “light”  and  “truth” that we can truly  and honestly  come  to be near  God Almighty  —  the one and only  Creator  and Redeemer.     No other god  or philosophy  can do anything for us.     Truth is truth  —  God  is God  —  “gods”  are  “gods”  —  and philosophies  are philosophies.

Only the LORD God Almighty can  “bring me  to Your holy hill  and to Your dwelling places.”     If we honestly desire  to be near truth everlasting,  we must allow God’s  “light”  and  “truth”  lead us  to where the true LORD of lords  really is.     That  “light”  and  “truth”  is throughout  the whole Bible  —  Old and New Testament.     The New Testament  is the proving grounds  of all the prophecies  in the Old Testament.

So,  the writer  of Psalm 43  is wanting God  to open up  his heart  and mind  to realize  the truthfulness  of all  of God’s word.     Realizing God’s truths throughout all  of His eternal word  will lead us  to God’s  “holy hill”  and God’s  “dwelling places”.     That means  an inner peace,  love,  and total trust  in all  of God’s ways  of salvation  in Christ Jesus  —  while we have  to live  on this earth.     Isn’t  that surety  what we want?

The bottom line is  that we do not need  to feel  any sort  of despair  or disturbance  in our souls.     The LORD  has proven  His trustworthiness  and love,  so we can rest  in His works  of salvation  for us,  and say,  “Hallelujah!     LORD,  thank You  for giving rest  to our souls  in Christ Jesus.”

Love,
Margaret
