And What More Shall I Say?

And What More Shall I Say?

Sometimes  we weak people  can rejoice  and marvel  at the absolute love and wisdom  of our Lord and Savior.     Time and again  we stumble around  and fall  into sin  in this life,  but God tenderly looks  at our little speck  of faith  and lovingly  picks us up again.     Then,  He strengthens us  in His truths  and helps us stay  on the straight and narrow path  to heaven.

We don’t deserve  our Lord’s grace  and faithful love — but,  oh how He enjoys  blessing us  along our way  and helping us  to live  in His glorious truths.     When we wonder  about our failures,  we need  to look at just  “who”  God calls heroes of faith — yes, faith!     God’s word points out many  of the failures  of His dear children  of faith.     Sure,  God is fully aware  of all our sins,  but,  in the same breath,  He sees our spark  of faith  and loves us  for it.     Hebrews 11:32  lists just a few  of God’s heroes  of faith

And what more shall I say?     For time will fail me  if I tell of  Gideon,  Barak,  Samson,  Jephthah…….

Yes, indeed!     What more can any of us say  when we think  of God’s heroes  of faith.     Take the time to look  at the Bible accounts  of each one  of these men.     They all had failings,  but the writer of Hebrews is listing them  as men  of faith — right along  with David,  Samuel,  Abraham,  Noah,  Moses, and many others.     You can use the search box  on a Bible study web site  like Blue Letter Bible  or Crosswalk  to read about the failures and sins  of each of these men.     But,  it’s not their failures  that are important — it is their faith  that is important  in the eyes  of God Almighty.     And,  it is God’s opinion  of His children  that counts  in the end.     The opinions  of mankind  are nothing  in God’s eyes.

It’s all like Psalm 73:26 says,

My flesh  and my heart  may fail;    
But God  is the strength  of my heart  and my portion  forever.

Truly, we are weak  in every aspect  of our living  on this earth — but,  our God is strong.     He calls Himself our Father — and refers to us  as His children.     That is why He loves  to help us.     We really are dear  to His heart.     We may be belittled  in the eyes  of this proud world.     They will sneeringly call us stupid  for trusting  in Jesus’ salvation  and full forgiveness  of all our sins.     God knows  all about that.     But,  we will be victorious  in heaven  forever and ever.     That is why Paul says  in 1 Corinthians 1:27,

But  God has  chosen  the foolish things  of the world  to shame the wise,  and God has  chosen  the weak things  of the world  to shame the things  which are strong,  and the base things  of the world  and the despised,  God has chosen,  the things  that are not,  that He might nullify the things  that are,  that no man should boast  before God.

God has not chosen us  because of our greatness  or strength  or independence.     We are the ones  who realize  that God is Lord and God  over all things.     And so,  we look to Him  in all our needs.     That’s faith.     That’s what God loves — us knowing  the truth  of who we are  and who God is.

We have nothing  of our own  to boast about.     But,  we can  and should  boast  about the greatness  of the Lord God Almighty,  whose love and salvation  have a wisdom  that no man can ever fathom.     Let us rejoice  in God’s love  and mercy  in calling us  His own dear children,  even in all our weaknesses.

In rejoicing,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     My Lord and Savior,  it is so good  to just know  and be assured  of  Your love  for me.     Thank You  for Your faithfulness.”

Love,
Margaret
