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

WHEN IDEALS AND REALITY COLLIDE

2/15/2018 9:38:00 AM BY Ron Susek

       What should you do when your ideals of faith collide with the obstacles of reality and time?  Read the answer in today's edition of FaithWalk: Courage for the Journey. 

                                            

When Ideals and Reality Collide

And thus, Abraham, having waited, obtained the promise. 
(Hebrews 6:15)


        On the day of Pentecost, Peter preached a straightforward sermon, calling people to repent and be saved.  Three thousand responded positively.  Most were Jews.  In fact, the early Church was made up almost entirely of Jews.      
 
       The book of Hebrews was written in the seventh decade after this grand day of evangelism at Pentecost.  Seventy plus years gave sufficient time to wear down the enthusiasm of many about the Savior.     
       When ideals and reality collide, it is often the ideals that we abandon. 
   
       This happened to many Hebrew believers.  Following seventy years of rugged realism grinding against their faith, they began to doubt, become discouraged, fall into disillusionment and disband.

       Thus, the eloquent writer of Hebrews reminded them that Abraham had to wait for God's promise to be fulfilled, and he certainly had many realities attempt to dissuade him from believing God.  The writer of Hebrews caught the one big thing that kept Abraham from growing weak in the knees.  It was this:  "For when God made a promise to Abraham, since he had no one greater by whom to swear, he swore by himself, saying, 'Surely I will bless you and multiply you'" (Hebrews 6:13-14).

       What greater guarantee could God give to Abraham other than to swear by Himself!  This put three things on the line:  God's trustworthiness, God's character and God's ability to accomplish the impossible.

       Time and resistance made God's promise appear beyond reach.  Still, he saw the promise fulfilled.  Although beyond the years of reproduction, He and Sarah gave birth to Isaac, the son through whom God multiplied Abraham's seed.

       This trust did not exalt Abraham's faith, but rather it exalted the God of Abraham's faith.  Remember that when you are in the time gap between a promise and its fulfillment.  Reality will construct obstacles to oppose your faith, even cause you to drift from the faith.

       Stand firm!  Be resolved. All of God's promises are "YES" in Christ Jesus (2 Corinthians 1:20) and, as we see in Hebrews, backed by a God who has sworn by His own name to do what He said He would do.

       You have a choice.  You can let time and reality break the strength of your faith, or you can stand firm until God proves His power to fulfill His promises.

       By standing firm in faith through the test of time and oppositions, you take your place among those whom God commends (Hebrews 11:39).  And you will blaze a trail of faith for others holding to diving promises that seem far off, even impossible.                    
    
Always remember,  Immanuel: God is with you!

THE SHAMING OF GOD

2/8/2018 6:00:00 AM BY Ron Susek

       Today you will see why Jesus sharply rebuked unbelief as you read this edition of FaithWalk: Courage for the Journey,

                                             

The Shaming of God
by Ron Susek
@Golden Quill Publications

How long, O God, is the foe to scoff? Is the enemy to revile your name forever?
(Psalm 74:10)

                                             

          As the world turns, so a steady stream of mockery is hurled heavenward to shame our God and Maker.  The entertainment industry reduces the human body from the temple of God to a den of degradation.  The field of science blasphemes God's creative word by crediting the universe to evolutionary chance.  Self-proclaimed elitists assume the right to eliminate any life that disrupts their desires - killing those yet in the womb, or those facing old age.  Universities teach young people to question, but not to believe.     
 
       The drumbeat of unbelief goes on as God momentarily seems to remain silent. True believers are daily held up for ridicule, even ostracization.  Many face persecution, even martyrdom.  But they do not yield.  They stand immovable, watching the world, like Saul of Tarsus, kicking vainly against the truth.     
 
       The believer's strength comes from an unwavering confidence in the God of creation, the God who will someday judge all things. Observing the spiritual blindness in the whole of the human race, they know that only One sent from God could have brought the light of heavenly conduct to earth. They stand rooted in the hope of redemption through Jesus' obedience on the cross. They are firmly convinced of an eternal future based upon the resurrection of Jesus Christ.  While the world attempts to cover them with a pall of shame, they move toward a better city, they are certain of an eternal home.

        It is by this faith that they not only please God (Hebrews 11:6). but bestow honor, glory and praise as a banner over His head.  In the end, we read these amazing words: "But as it is, they desire a better country, that is, a heavenly one.  Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared for them a city."

       This throws light on the high value of faith, especially in the face of a world casting derision heavenward.  By believing God through this torturous time of derision by the world, you are making God unashamed of you.

       The reverse is also true.  To seek acceptance by joining the world in shaming God is to bring utter shame upon yourself.  This world is going to be called into account.  All the fabricated deceptions conjured up in evil imaginations will be laid bare.  You do not want to be numbered among the feeble who abandoned God for a momentary reprieve from the vicious tongue lashings of evil.

       Solomon wrote, "A wise son makes a glad father . . ." (Proverbs 15-20).  As the world casts dispersions toward God, steadily lift your unwavering faith heavenward.  And He will not be ashamed to be called your God, and you will not be ashamed by having betrayed your Father, Jehovah God.          
    
Always remember,  Immanuel: God is with you!

THE FIRE OF FAITH

2/1/2018 9:51:00 AM BY Ron Susek

       What causes some people to overcome impossible odds while others languish in defeat?  Read today's edition of FaithWalk: Courage for the Journey. 

                                               

The Fire of Faith
by Ron Susek
@Golden Quill Publications 


Then the fire of the LORD fell and consumed the burnt offering and the wood and the stones and the dust,  
and licked up the water that was in the trench.
 
(I Kings 18:38 ESV)


       It is not uncommon for God's people to be obligated to live for a period of time in the shadow of an evil mountain that will not move.  Then comes the time when God would have you move the mountain by faith.  You begin by building your faith upon the foundation of God's Word, then learning to pray until God grants the fulness of faith.  And then comes the moment when your faith becomes a fire.  It is time to move the mountain.    
 
       Evil builds huge, impassable mountains to threaten to impede God's will and block the believer's path.  Satan desires to mock faith and render God's promises powerless.    
 
       Eventually, believers assume the mountain cannot be moved.  Some believers, however, use the challenge to stoke the fires of faith.  They refuse to allow such mockery of God to persist.   
 
       It is then that a "Moses" looks Pharaoh in the eyes, and without wincing says, "Let my people go!" It is then that an "Elijah" calls down fire from the sky and destroys four hundred and fifty prophets of Baal.  It is then that an "Israel" topples the walls of Jericho.

       The impossible.  That is it!  That is what causes the fires of faith to burn the brightest.  This is not wild-eyed zealotry, but rather faith acting in the power of God to remove that which opposes the living God. 
 
       Why does it often take a long time to bring down heaven's opposition?  Generally, it is because the people of faith allow the strongholds of Satan to grow stronger and stronger until the people become bound.  For instance, it was disobedience that caused Israel to languish in the mud pits of Egypt until Moses rose up to say, "Enough!"  
 
       Is it possible that one of the reasons why young people are departing the Church never to return is because they do not see the fires of faith driving parents and pastors to move impossible mountains?  They hear the great stories of the Bible, but they remain just that - stories.  They learned the great hymns of the faith from their ancestors that speak of marvelous things, then no faith is engaged to see marvelous things take place.   
 
       Faith, by its nature, cries out for a contest with the impossible.  When that is denied, faith either becomes passive or defeated.  There is no challenge listening to the ancient exploits of faith if it is not exercised today.

       There was one common factor in the heroes of faith listed in Hebrews 11.  They all faced impossible mountains.  And they conquered by faith, be it overcoming impossible armies or accepting martyrdom.  All was done by the fire of faith!  
 
       These were all commended by God.  In this darkening hour of evil, may you and I rise to the ranks of the commended by God.  Is the fire of faith burning in your soul?  There are impossible mountains to be moved - NOW! 

                                              

       Always remember,  Immanuel: God is with you!
