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

THE LAMP OF YOUR SPIRIT

       Discover how God searches the deepest parts of your heart by reading today's edition of FaithWalk: Courage for the Journey. 

                                               

The Lamp of Your Spirit 
by Ron Susek
@Golden Quill Publications

The spirit [breath] of man is the lamp of the Lord, searching all his innermost parts. 
(Proverbs 20:27)

       Whereas the sun floods the earth from one horizon to the other, a lamp illuminates one small corner at a time. A broad view is needed to see where you are heading, but a narrow focus is needed to get you there.

       When God looks upon you, He sees the whole landscape of your being: your inbred motivations, your varied shades of personality, what shaped your worldview, etc.  He sees to your depth, even to that which lies beyond your view.
      
       Today's verse reveals that God turns on the inner light of your spirit to reveal you to yourself - one small corner at a time.  This is for your benefit, not His.

       This process is unique to you as the highest of all creation.  No such thing takes place in animals.  They have no introspection, no soul searching, no regret or consideration of improvement.  All is instinctive, from the biting and kicking to establish hierarchy to killing for survival.   All is instinct - period!


        Not so with you.  You were created for a personal relationship with God.  He is tediously shining the lamp on your spirit one area at a time, illuminating that which cannot remain: a savage tongue, critical spirit, idols of the heart, Godless attitudes, improper thoughts and inappropriate conduct.  The list goes on and on. 
 
       Offering God explanations, excuses and defenses will delay the process.  Be wise.  Confess and repent.  Step by step He will transform you into the likeness of His Son, Jesus Christ (Romans 8:29).
 
       Like you, every Christian must experience God's work in their lives.  Both Ruth and Billy Graham had to go through this soul-searching  process.  Ruth Graham had engraved on her tombstone, "End of construction - thank you for your patience." 

        God also shines the lamp on your spirit on areas where He has developed the fruit of His Spirit in you.  You will see love where bitterness was once nested; joy where anger once thrived; peace where turbulence once boiled; patience where agitation once hid; kindness where criticism once reigned; goodness where selfishness once harbored; faithfulness where unreliableness once closeted; gentleness where harshness once demanded its own way and self-control where lust once lurked.

       You cannot produce this transformation by self-effort.  This comes only as the Holy Spirit reveals each area to you over your lifetime.  Progress comes as you confess, repent and yield to the transformation.

       So, welcome God's intense focus, revealing those areas that lie beyond your view.  God's highest purpose is to make you identical to His Son (Romans 8:17).      

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


 

FOCUS OR FAIL

5/10/2018 3:12:00 PM BY Ron Susek

       Your mind is a great treasure.  Masterful thieves want to steal it.  Learn how to guard it in today's edition of FaithWalk: Courage for the Journey.   

                                                 

Focus or Fail
by Ron Susek
@Golden Quill Publications 

. . . be transformed by the renewal of your mind . . .. 
(Romans 12:2)

       Two Northwest pilots caused panic in the sky on October 21, 2009, when they overshot their landing at Minneapolis airport by 150 miles.  Fearing the worst, air traffic controllers asked them to execute certain maneuvers to prove that they were not hijackers.

       The pilots, Captain Timothy Cheney and First Officer Richard Cote, had stellar records, but were "glued to their laptops, puzzling over a new flight scheduling system."
      
       The FAA investigation concluded that the pilots' minds were trapped in "situational awareness."  That is a big sounding diagnosis for failing to focus on what mattered - safely landing the plane that was filled with invaluable cargo - people!


       An undisciplined mind swims from wave to wave on the surface of thought.  The disciplined mind scuba dives into deep fathoms to know truth.  God has placed you in charge of your mind (Proverbs 4:23; 1 Corinthians 10:5),  YOU determine whether you splash on the surface or plunge to the depth.

       The world strives to keep you in the shallows of perpetual suspense. For instance, news segments end with an apocalyptic tease to grip you until the commercials end. Then they lie by offering less important news, holding the sizzling "blockbuster" for the end.  It, too, is often a firecracker, not a bomb shell.

       They are actually stealing your time and focus for the sake of advertisers who pay them big bucks to hold your attention while they reach for your wallet.
 
       Add to this Social Media.  They connect you with family and friends.  Soon you are drawn into a vortex of valueless information while people make billions of dollars marketing your personal information to advertisers. 

       The tragedy is that your mind is being programmed to splash, not dive.  Thus, many pastors are forced into short, shallow sermons to accommodate undisciplined minds.

       God will not play the game.  He said, "You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart (Jeremiah 29:13).  He adds, "Be still" - i.e. stop the frantic splashing in search of vain stimulation, and instead, meditate on God (Psalm 46:10).

      To let one's mind bounce from wave to wave in search of mental stimulation is a sign of mental laziness, not brilliance.  It is addictive.  There are two reasons why you must go through the withdrawal and break the intoxication of shallow thinking:  One is that there is no other way to deepen your walk with God and, the other is that some soon day you must answer to God for what you did with the mind He entrusted to you.      

       Two pilots allowed their minds to be distracted and missed their destination.  The same will happen to you. This is not a rebuke, but a strong reminder of the battle for your mind. War against the thieves who want to steal your mind for worldly profit.  Let no one steal the treasure of your mind.  God is the owner.  You are the guard.

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

                                                  

THE DIVINE PLOT

5/3/2018 9:19:00 AM BY Ron Susek

       Do you believe God is unfolding a plan that will inevitably triumph?  If so, can you identify it?  Do not miss today's edition of FaithWalk: Courage for the Journey.    

                                               
                                              BUILDERBERG, a highly secretive group of international,
                                              influential people, meets every year in an effort to establish
                                              a NEW WORLD ORDER.

 

The Divine Plot
by Ron Susek
@Golden Quill Publications


The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD and against his Anointed . . .. 
(Psalm 2:2)

       Both the evening news and talk show debates offer little hope that our world is moving toward a good place - but it is!  It cannot, however, be achieved by mankind. 

       As we observe the never-ending suspense of our world, "He who sits in the heavens laughs; the Lord holds them in derision" (Psalm 2:4).

      It all began when Adam and Eve followed Satan's lie - You shall be as God - and bit into the fruit of rebellion.  Mankind fell from divine rule to self-rule.  And in a tragic sense the results have proven God's Word to be true. 

       God has given us six thousand years to prove that we can govern ourselves in peace and purpose. The horrors reported in the nightly news, however, reflect our failure.  We have failed to legislate a perfect civilization into existence.

       At just the right time, however, God will hand the nations to the Prince of Peace, who gained the right and authority to govern the nations by His obedience in life and death. 
 
       This magnificent purpose and plan is unfolding before your eyes, that is, if you can turn off the news and see life through God's eyes.  You will quickly discover that mankind faces two choices:  Either comply or compete with divine governance.
 
       Stupidly, we compete.  We undermine ourselves from the start by removing the Creator from schools and misleading our students with massive doses of imaginary non-truth. 

       At just the right time, however, God will hand the nations to the Prince of Peace, who gained the right and authority to govern the nations by His obedience in life and death. 
 
       This magnificent purpose and plan is unfolding before your eyes, that is, if you can turn off the news and see life through God's eyes.  You will quickly discover that mankind faces two choices:  Either comply or compete with divine governance.
 
       We attempt to shape God into our likeness, as though we are the masterpiece of perfection.  In so doing, we invent gods that are deaf, blind and dumb.

       God's laws, which rest upon the foundation of love, are cast out to be replaced with arbitrary, negotiable, changeable laws.  Thus, they are no more than passing ideas, and in reality, they are neither laws nor truth.

       Having given mankind six millennia to prove his failure as a delusional and self-made god, soon God's words to His Son will be fulfilled:  "I will tell of the decree: 'The Lord said to me, 'You are my Son; today I have begotten you.  Ask of me, and I will make the nations your heritage, and the ends of the earth your possession"' (Psalm 2:7-8).

       In the end, the true Prince of Peace will bring the world to a better place.  Will you be worthy to reign with Him?  If you come to the cross in sincere repentance - i.e. turn from competing with God to compliance to Him - then the answer is a glorious YES!

Always remember, Immanuel: God is with you!
