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 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

. . . 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!

THINK BEFORE JUDGING GOD

6/14/2018 5:35:00 PM BY Ron Susek

       Have you ever been shocked by harsh criticism leveled against God?  Do not miss today's edition of FaithWalk: Courage for the Journey.

                                                  

Think Before Judging God
by Ron Susek
@ Golden Quill Publications

I do not delight in the blood of bulls, or of lambs, or of goats.
(Isaiah 1:11)


       Many are quick to opinion and slow to thought.  This leads to outlandish conclusions that would be laughable if not so tragic.  For instance, cruel mockery has been hurled at God for commanding the slaughter of certain people in Old Testament days. 
 
       Upon reading of such a judgment, pride rises from its self-made styrofoam throne to hurl insults toward God, even calling Him deranged. Puffed with self-importance, pride takes the liberty of impugning the wisdom of God.
      
       Set opinion aside and follow the trail of reason.  Here is what we know about God:

       1. He called all of His creation,"Very good" (Genesis 1:31).
       2.The core of His nature is everlasting love (1 John 4:8).
       3.God loves all people (John 3:16).
       4.His faithfulness is steadfast (Psalm 33:4).
       5.God takes no delight in the sacrifice of animals (Isaiah 1:11).

       
        This logic leads us to one conclusion:  When God makes judgments we may not understand, they are based upon a loving, faithful nature that desires to give life, not bring death.  Since God's wrath is tempered by mercy (Habakkuk 3:2) and faithful love is the core of His being, judgments we may not fully understand are still rooted in wisdom for the benefit of the entire human race.

       Since God rarely explains His decisions, it is for us to base our reasoning upon His revelation.  Once done, stand by faith; i.e. trust the wisdom of His judgments.

       This leads to a new horizon of considerations.  Here is one:  Is it possible that had not God brokenheartedly commanded the end of certain people you would not exist today?  Sin is a destructive force.  It corrupts the heart, diseases the body and blinds the eye towards God.  Satan, who is a murderer and liar (John 8:44), would love to mastermind the extinction of mankind by a pandemic of disease set in motion by sin.  
 
       And if disease could not do it, sin would lead mankind to destroy himself.  Are we not on the brink of this taking place with the capabilities of nuclear warheads?

       This apologetic is not intended to defend our God who needs no defense.  In time, He will be proven all wise without human help.  It is for our benefit, however, to learn to trust God's wisdom even when it taxes our wisdom.  It is our work to bring every thought (and opinion) subject to Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 10:5).
 
       Do so fearlessly.  You will never be proven stupid or foolish.  
 
Always remember, Immanuel: God is with you!

Ron

                                       
 

 

 


 

THE DIVINE SEARCH

6/7/2018 3:30:00 PM BY Ron Susek

       Do you want resolve for a troubled situation? Read today's edition of FaithWalk: Courage for the Journey. 

                                         

The Divine Search
by Ron Susek
@Golden Quill Publications

For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to give strong support to those whose heart is blameless [or whole] toward him. 
(2 Chronicles 16:9)

       
       The eye of God constantly scans the earth in search of those who wholeheartedly love Him.  The benchmark of love is obedience. 
 
       It is worthy to read through the life stories of Israel and Judah's kings at least once a year.  The pattern is perfectly consistent.

       Of the forty-eight kings of Israel and Judah listed in the Bible, eight were either obedient or partially obedient and thirty-five were flagrantly disobedient.  God's response to each is predictable.  Those who loved and obeyed God were delivered from difficult situations.  Those who did not faced insurmountable problems.  
 
       Why do we find it so hard to love God?  Because true love means the death of your rights to yourself. 
 
       This is easily noticeable when two people are in the first blush of love.  They are ready to surrender all rights to one another.  Then, after marriage, the tug-of-war for my rights begins.  It is not until each one dies to his or her demand for rights in order to serve the other that they enter into genuine love. 
 
       And so it is in our relationship with God. 
 
       Why do we find it so hard to obey God?  Because we have self-oriented desires that demand fulfillment.

         This is easily seen in the many Christians who pray, Thy will be done, when deep within their hearts they are saying My will be done.  They rush to the throne of God to gain His blessing when their plans are falling apart. But it never occurs to them to seek God until He opens His plans for their lives. 
 
       As the eye of God scans north and south, east and west, what does He see each time He passes over you?  Does He find a reason to stop and abide because He finds you abiding in Him?  Does He see a heart of love willing to surrender all rights to self in order to please Him?  Is this evidenced by acts of obedience fulfilling what you know to be His will? 

       If so, be encouraged.  The obedient kings of history - men like David, Asa, Josiah, Hezekiah and a few others - witnessed the hand of God answering the deepest cries of their hearts, often delivering them from impossible situations.
 
       So it will be with you.  "For the LORD God is a sun and shield; the LORD bestows favor and honor. No good thing does he withhold from those who walk uprightly" (Psalm 84:11).

                                       

Always remember, Immanuel: God is with you!
