Discovering the REAL YOU

Finding God's Gift of well-being. God is in the business of character building, not quick-fix solutions to our problems. If we evolved from animals, we must look down to the animals to understand our behavior. However, when we turn to the Bible, we discover that is not the picture at all. Rather, we fell from God and the only way we can understand ourselves is to look up to God and see how far we have fallen. The harder you try to feel good about yourself, the more you are focused on self.




Ron's Reflections

QUOTABLE QUOTES

7/5/2018 6:31:00 PM BY Ron Susek

       Before you believe the claim that America was not founded as a Christian nation, consider some quotes from those who lived through the early days.  Read these important words in today's edition of FaithWalk: Courage for the Journey.

                                          

Quotable Quotes

Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.
(Psalm 33:12)

       
        "IN THE NAME OF GOD, AMEN.   We . . ., Having undertaken for the Glory of God, and Advancement of the Christian Faith . . . solemnly and mutually, in the Presence of God and one another, covenant and combine ourselves together . . . for our better Ordering and Preservation, and Furtherance of the Ends aforesaid."       ~Excerpts from the Mayflower Compact
                                                                                                                                            
       "Is it not that in the chain of human events, the birthday of the nation is indissolubly linked with the birthday of the Savior?  That it forms a leading event in the progress of the Gospel dispensation?  Is it not that the Declaration of Independence first organized the social compact on the foundation of the Redeemer's mission on earth?  That it laid the cornerstone of human government upon the first precepts of Christianity?"       ~John Quincy Adams 
 

       "It is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor."            ~George Washington                                               
        "We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people.  It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other."           ~John Adams
 
       "The Bible is the best of all books, for it is the word of God and teaches us the way to be happy in this world and in the next.  Continue therefore to read it and to regulate your life by its precepts."                                                                                                                                          ~John Jay, First Chief Justice 

         Not only were the founder of our Nation dedicated to the principles of Christianity, our earliest institutions of higher learning were also established on the same foundation.
 
       
"Let every student be plainly instructed and earnestly pressed to consider well the main end of his life and studies is to know God and Jesus Christ which is eternal life (John 17:3) and therefore to lay Christ in the bottom as the only foundation of all sound knowledge and learning. ~Harvard 1636 Student Guidelines 

        "All scholars are required to live a religious and blameless life according to the rules of God's Word, diligently reading the Holy Scriptures, that fountain of Divine light and truth, and constantly attending all the duties of religion."       ~Yale 1787 Student Guidelines 
 
         
It is evident that our country was founded on Judeo-Christian principles as established in the Bible. Nothing short of a return to this foundation will comprise a revival that matters. 
 
         Just as great nations of the past have turned back to God, so can America!  Let's pray together for our great nation!


Always remember, Immanuel: God is with you!
Your friend,
Ron

                                      


     

 

WHEN ALL STRENGTH IS GONE

6/28/2018 6:13:00 PM BY Ron Susek

No matter how close you walk with God, times come when all strength is gone.  Do not miss today's edition of FaithWalk: Courage for the Journey   

                                             

When All Strength is Gone
by Ron Susek
@Golden Quill Publications

For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities.  For when I am weak, then I am strong.
(2 Corinthians 12:10)


       Has life ever collapsed around you so badly that you felt completely hollowed inside?  It is disheartening to be incapable of resolving your situation.  Like Paul, you are imprisoned by circumstances and there is no acceptable way out. 
 
       If you are seeking and waiting upon God, and not acting foolishly to untether yourself, then a mighty mystery will take place - a mystery that lies beyond your perception.  All you know is that laughter is silenced, happiness is strangled and hope is crushed.  Your heart has become like a haunting echo chamber, repeating over and over again the impossibility life has imposed upon you.
 
       To add to your agony, God seems distant and disinterested.  He is silent.  You are emptied of strength and no one can repair your loss.

       In 1 Samuel, we read of a woman named Hannah, who was passing through such an experience.  The issue was childlessness.  This was exceedingly important to her, but nothing could change her barrenness since the Lord had closed her womb.
 
       Powerless to break out of her helpless state, she prayed with such intensity in the house of God that Eli, the priest, thought she was drunk.  But in her desperation, she made a vow to God that fell directly within His mysterious plan.  She promised to devote her son solely unto God.
 
       It is often when you feel the most abandoned that God fills your hollowed heart with the works of His hand.  Samuel's birth silenced Hannah's heckler and met Israel's need for solid, spiritual leadership for many years.

       Paul said of his sufferings, "For when I am weak, then I am strong."  In other words, when he could do nothing about "weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities," he knew that somehow, behind the scene, God was moving in a mysterious way to accomplish His will.
 
       In 1773, William Cowper grasped this concept and wrote a hymn in which he had the lyric, "God moves in a mysterious way, His wonders to perform."  Perhaps his mind gleaned this from Isaiah 55:8-9, which reads, "For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways," declares the Lord.  "As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.

       Babbie Mason, a Christian singer-songwriter puts it this way:

              God is too wise to be mistaken; God is too good to be unkind.
              So when you don't understand, when you don't see His plan,
              When you can't trace His hand, trust His heart. 

       So, when you are stripped of strength to resolve your situation, rest in the Lord, and wait on His divine mystery to unfold.  It will!

Ron

                                        





 

THE DEEPEST CALL ON EARTH

6/21/2018 5:48:00 AM BY Ron Susek

       How deeply has Jesus' call "Follow me" penetrated your heart?  Consider that question as you read today's edition of FaithWalk: Courage for the Journey

                                                 

The Deepest Call on Earth
by Ron Susek
@ Golden Quill Publications

. . . follow me.
(Matthew 16:24)


       Every call requires commitment to receive its benefits.  For instance, the stirring call of the wild requires entering its realm to be refreshed by its intoxicating impact upon our senses. It can powerfully replace tensions with renewal of soul. 
 
       No call penetrates more deeply than Jesus' words, "Follow me."  Just as one must depart city noise and smog to gain refreshment in the wilds, so one must forfeit the bondage of self-governorship to walk in the liberty of Jesus.  To answer Jesus' call is to experience heaven's transformative power.  He said, "Follow me, and I will make you . . .."

       Think of all that He makes you to be.

 

  • He makes you a fisherman of men and women.
  • He makes you an eternal child of God.
  • He makes you holy and fit to stand before God.
  • He makes you an equal-heir to His throne.
  • He makes you free to enter His Father's throne room to pray.

       
       This is only a sampling of what He makes you to be when you choose to follow Him.
 
       Guard against craving what you want of Him rather than what He wants from you.  Otherwise, you will suffer from frustrated expectations.
 
       Even Christian workers can fall into this trap.  Think of the dejection of the rich young ruler in Luke 18:18-30.  Jesus told him to sell all that he had and give it to the poor.  He may have wondered why Jesus would not tell him how to use his wealth to finance a big ministry.  Instead, Jesus told him to give it away.  His Father did not need his wealth to accomplish His purpose.     
 
       How many good sounding plans need to be scrapped because they did not come from following Jesus?  Will we, like the rich young ruler, walk away dejected?  Or will we become rich toward God by obeying Jesus' commands and following Him? 

       The Apostle Paul faced this very question.  He was sitting in prison with a few clothes and a hard bed. Undaunted by circumstances, he wrote "and my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus" (Philippians 4:19).    
 
       In other words, everything you need to follow Jesus and fulfill the will of God will be supplied.  If you refuse to listen to the self-seeking voices hiding deep within and wholeheartedly follow with what you have, then the Lord Himself will direct you in all your ways. 
 
       And you will enjoy the fullness of His fellowship each step of the way.   
 
Always remember, Immanuel: God is with you!
