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

FAITH AMID SLEEPLESS NIGHTS

7/26/2018 3:48:00 PM BY Ron Susek

        Sleepless nights are well known to people who seek to walk close to God.  Discover what this means by reading today's edition of FaithWalk: Courage for the Journey

                                   

Faith Amid Sleepless Nights
by Ron Susek
@ Golden Quill Publications

You have kept count of my tossings:  put my tears in your bottle. Are they not in your book?  Then my enemies will turn back in the day when I call.  This I know, that God is for me.
(Psalm 56:8-10)

       Do not be surprised when you seek to walk closer to God and discover unusual turbulence in your spirit, the kind that causes sleepless nights.

        Why would this be?  Because the closer you walk with God, the more you enter the real war zone in the heavenly realms.  This is where spiritual wrestling takes place, and often spills onto earth, affecting families, societies and nations. 

        Contending with these tossings of the spirit is some of what Paul must have had in mind when he spoke about sharing in the sufferings of Christ.  Although Satan was defeated when Jesus went to the cross,  he still rages in a futile attempt to reverse the outcome of a war he has already lost.  His thrashings can and will be felt by those who walk closely with God. 
                                                  
        There are other times when a traumatic event sets the soul on alert and sleep is hard to find.  Other times, there may not be a known event in your life, but you are experiencing a spiritual war in the heavenly realms.  Thus, you pray in faith, knowing that you are guarded on high.    
 
        David endured the "tossings of the soul" because, by faith, he knew that his enemies, both in the heavenly realms and on earth, would be turned back.  The discomfort of his spiritual wrestlings did not discourage his faith.  Despite the pressure, he was able to say, "This I know, that God is for me."  
 
        Indeed, the world will witness the evil one silenced at the coming of the Prince of Peace.  The tossings are like waves in a storm.  When the threatening winds end, the boiling waves settle into peaceful quietude.  In this light, despite the fury of the storm, faith knows to rest in the Almighty plan and purpose of God.

        Your victory comes when every part of you can rest in the truth of David's words, "I know that God is for me.."     
          
Always remember, Immanuel: God is with you!
Your friend,
Ron

                                            
   
 
 


 

FAITH'S NARROW RIDGE

7/19/2018 3:37:00 PM BY Ron Susek

        What could cause you to slip and stumble away from faith?  This is a good time to read today's edition of FaithWalk: Courage for the Journey.

                                 

Faith’s Narrow Ridge
by Ron Susek
@ Golden Quill Publications

But as for me, my feet had almost stumbled, my steps had nearly slipped.  For I was envious of the arrogant when I saw the prosperity of the wicked.
(Psalm 73:2-3)

        A faith-walk with God is much like traversing a narrow ridge with steep slopes on both sides, which calls for sure-footedness.
                                                                                                                                      
        Some of the winds and slopes come from academic circles, challenging confidence in God's inerrant Word.  Others come from the pressures of life's bewilderments

    
        
A dominant headwind that has toppled many Christians is the sense of unfairness that comes by seeing people prosper despite mocking all that is righteous and good. 
                                                  
        This nearly caused Asaph to slip and fall, or put another way, give up on the disciplines of a faith-walk pleasing to God.  He boldly admitted that he nearly threw in the towel, saying that faith in God was worthless.  He was ready to quit.  
 
        Asaph described the lifestyles of the opulent, which resulted in their eyes bulging from fat.  They mouthed off slanderous words toward heaven, making light of sacred things.  They dismissed God as being blind to their behavior.  Yet, they were successful.
 
        One thought nearly blew him off the ridge:  "All in vain have I kept my heart clean and washed my hands in innocence" (Psalm 73:13).  It simply did not seem worthwhile to maintain the disciplines required to stand on the pinnacle of faith.

        He was about to fail when another thought grabbed his hand and lifted him back to the top.  He wrote, "But when I thought how to understand this, it seemed to me a wearisome task, until I went into the sanctuary of God; then I discerned their end."    
 
        Perhaps, as he sat in the sanctuary, he thought of Solomon, who began as the wisest man on earth, then died a fool; and that because, as he aged, he abandoned his faith-walk to marry pagan women.  His dad, David, was the opposite.  He committed horrible sins in his younger years, then walked the high ridge of faith the rest of his life.  Solomon left a trail that he himself called vanity - an empty, passing wind. In contrast, David left a throne upon which Christ will reign.

        In a flash of a thought, Asaph rose again to the heights of faith-obedience.  It was by sitting in the sanctuary and seeing the end that restored his determination to continue walking the ridge, defying the buffeting winds.
 
        You will face unique winds blowing for each season of your life.  Keep your feet firmly planted, your heart steadfastly fixed and your eyes on the ultimate end.  Laugh at the winds.  Without them, there is no meaningful walk of faith. 
 
Always remember, Immanuel: God is with you!
Your friend,
Ron

                                       
 
      

 

THE GREAT LEAP OF FAITH

7/12/2018 3:22:00 PM BY Ron Susek

        Are you ready for the great leap of faith?  We will look hard at what this means in today's edition of FaithWalk: Courage for the Journey.

                                     

The Great Leap of Faith
by Ron Susek
@ Golden Quill Publications

For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the LORD.  For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts.
(Isaiah 55:8-9)

       The great challenge to faith comes when life seems to rally its forces against you.  You realize that you were only useful for a moment, then the very people you loved, trusted and needed walked away.  You feel as though you were played for a fool.  Your name is up for slander.  And heaven seems silent, even deaf to your cry for help. 
                                                                                                                                    
       This is when the contest of faith reaches a fevered pitch.  Temptation, posing as your friend, urges you to take matters into your own hands.
  
        It is now when your faith must leap the yawning gap between God's ways and your ways.  The span appears infinite and impossible, but this is the vault God requires of faith.  To make the jump you must be willing to think and act like God, even when you appear to be the loser in your pressing circumstance.  Are you willing to believe God is with you even when the evidence escapes you?  Are you willing to handle your situation the same way God is handling it?
                                                
        Jesus did, and was crucified for it.  But then came His resurrection!  It was established that God would reduce His enemies, who sang in triumph at His death, to his footstool (Hebrews 1:13).  He was raised up by God as the Lord of the nations.

        Was this easy for Jesus to do?  No.  The hour of bleakness became so intense that He asked if it was possible for the cup to pass.  Knowing that to bypass this sorrowful cup of suffering would be to forfeit the redemption of His enemies, Jesus surrendered to His Father's way - "Thy will be done."
 
        Still, the agony increased until He cried out in a loud voice, "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?" (Matthew 27:46). 

 
        Amid incomprehensible grief and suffering, Jesus obeyed because of His confidence that His Father's thoughts and ways, though higher than ours, are best - the power to give eternal life to all who call upon His name would only be possible by passing through the grave and placing His blood of redemption before His Father's throne.  
 
        So, the leap of faith into the thoughts and ways of God is never easy.  But it always ends with your enemies reduced to footstools and your exaltation to reign over the coming kingdom as a co-equal heir with Jesus Christ (Romans 8:16-17).

        As you ponder the leap into God's thoughts and ways of handling your situation, know that this is a vault to victories that are glorifying and pleasing to God.  
 
Always remember, Immanuel: God is with you!
Your friend,
Ron
