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 GOD IS READY, IT HAPPENS!

As we approach the celebration of Christ's first advent, are you looking for  His second coming? Read today's edition of FaithWalk: Courage for the Journey

                        

When God is Ready, It Happens!
by Ron Susek
@ Golden Quill Publications


But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son . . ..
(Galatians 4:4)

      To a child, the day before Christmas is an eternity.  For weeks, the child has heard happy Christmas music, seen dazzling lights, been mystified by glitter and, above all, experienced excitement and anticipation over soon-coming gifts.   

       "In the fullness of time," Christmas morning comes.  Wide-eyed, children open packages and squeal with delight over new toys.  For them, life is complete, at least for the moment.  Moms and dads smile, rejoicing in the moment for their children's joy, but knowing full well the importance of future fulfillments, such as graduation, marriage, birthing a child, and other achievements.  
 
      The ultimate gift, however, is the certainty of knowing God as intimately as a child knows his or her father.  
 
      For purposes known only to God, He chose to reveal Himself somewhat like a build-up to Christmas.  We find growing anticipation in the Old Testament believers, always looking forward to a completion of their salvation. 
 
      Hebrews 1:1-2 says, "Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son . . .." 

       Do you see the anticipation building?  Old Testament believers kept looking to God for more revelation about Himself, and above all, the coming of the final sacrifice for sin.   
    
      Then, in the fullness of time, it happened.  God sent His Son.  Sadly, only a few understood Who was lying in the manger.  Most of the world did not know of His birth.  When King Herod learned of Him, he set forth to kill his rival to the throne.  The religious leaders had drifted so far from previous revelations of God that they perceived Jesus as a liar, blasphemer and prince of devils. 
 
      Still, it was God's fullness of time to send His Son for two primary reasons:  One, to reveal the express image of His likeness; and, two, to redeem us from sin and death to make us God's sons. 

      Thus, in verses 2-3, the writer of Hebrews continues opening the greatest gift of all time when he writes, ". . . whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world.  He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power.  After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high . . .."
 
       Now we await the next "fullness of time" when Jesus returns.  Will you be mystified like the religious leaders were at His first coming?  All things happen in the fullness of time, and cannot be stopped.  Prepare now!  Seek Him as did the three Assyrian wise men who expended time and wealth to worship and honor the newborn King.  When God is ready, it will happen! 


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

 
                              
 
 

 

 

 


 

THE ORDINARY vs. the SPECTACULAR

11/30/2017 6:55:00 AM BY Ron Susek

Consider how the seemingly ordinary can blind us to the spectacular by reading today's edition of FaithWalk: Courage for the Journey.

                          

The Ordinary vs. the Spectacular
by Ron Susek
@Golden Quill Publications

Is not this the carpenter's son?
(Matthew 13:55)


      To us, the spectacular only occurs when something exceeds the ordinary, when in fact, the ordinary is the spectacular.  Audiences give standing ovations when a song ends on a loud, high note.  We gasp when the rising sun bursts out of darkness, setting the horizon ablaze.  Sadly, if our experience seems not spectacular, we reduce it to the ordinary, the mundane.  Our fallen nature distorts both perception and perspective.   
 
      Dishonorably, spiritual leaders of old considered Jesus to be ordinary; after all, to them He was merely a carpenter's son. Little did they know that they were devaluing the very Person who, by His Father's authority, brought them into existence.  Never could this "ordinary" person be the Redeemer of all things - both humanity and the universe alike.  Nothing could awaken their distorted senses to recognize that this man was God's standard for judging all of mankind.  Now, THAT is SPECTACULAR!
 
      Can we see God's spectacular handiwork in the ordinary?  Or do we dismiss the spectacular as mundane - just the son of a carpenter?  God places this test upon us all.

       Life's routine dulls our senses.  We forget that we are riding on a spectacular spacecraft (earth) that sustains our very existence.  If our planetary home were closer to the sun we would burn to a crisp.  If it were further from the sun we would freeze.  We fret over a wrinkle and fail to be awestruck by the seventy-four thousand miles of micro veins carrying nutrients and oxygen to 100 trillion cells, while hauling the garbage away.
 
      Do you get the point?  In countless ways, we reduce the spectacular to the ordinary, saying, He's only a carpenter's son.  
 
      Blinded by Jesus' ordinariness, the leaders failed to fall at Jesus' feet crying out, "My Lord and my God."  Had they recognized the spectacular, they would have buckled at the knees as did John, who wrote, "I fell at his feet as dead" (Revelation 1:17).  Overwhelmed, he only gained the strength to write when Jesus touched him and said, "Fear not, I am the first and the last, the living one."
    
      Can we see the spectacular soul wrapped in the tattered clothes of a street person? Can we recognize God's masterful hand enlarging spectacular wisdom through life's brutal losses?  Do we perceive God's spectacular kingdom being born in hearts amid the calamity of earthly kingdoms?  Are we aware that in every "ordinary" joy or sorrow, God is forging the spectacular nature of His Son in our hearts?  (Romans 8:29).
 
      Will we continue dismissing the spectacular because it appears as just a carpenter's son?  Elizabeth Barrett Browning wrote it this way:

                    
                    "Earth's crammed with heaven,
                    And every common bush afire with God,
                    But only he who sees takes off his shoes;
                    The rest sit round and pluck blackberries."

Do you live with an attitude of gratitude? Think this through as you read today's edition of FaithWalk: Courage for the Journey. 

                                                      

                                                 

ThanksLiving
by Ron Susek

And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
(Colossians3:16)

      Thanksgiving should rush from the deepest part of our being.  It should flow out of a well of "ThanksLiving".  Think about it.  Problems come and go but you are here, alive in a world created just for you.  A world that the God designed as a revelation of Himself. 

      His everlasting love is demonstrated on the cross when His Son,
             Jesus, atoned for our sins and gave us eternal life. 
      -  His power is seen in the act of creation.  Six words in six days, then a  
             rest - i.e. completion.
      -  His transcendence is illustrated by the endlessness of space.
      -  His care is shown by the abundance of food rising from the earth each  
              year.
      -  His glory is seen in the firmament.
      -  His handiwork is presented by the wondrous way our bodies are formed.
      -  His love is expressed by His patience towards us when we do not trust
               His promises. 
      -  His fatherly care is felt by His hand of chastening and blessing.
      -  His heart is revealed in His agonizing concern for all nations.
      -  His nature is observable in the life and words of His Son, Jesus Christ.
      -  His special revelation is found in the book that He authored - the Bible.
      -  His light of truth is symbolized every day with the rising of the sun.
      -  His faithfulness can be identified by the precision of the planets.   

    
       Indeed, the parallels are endless.  It is only when we attempt to live independently of Him that we are blind to it all.  When we humbly repent of our self-driven ways and seek His face, the grand secret of life is unlocked, and even a child can understand.       
     
       My board and staff join Diane and me in wishing you the wonder of 

                                                        ThanksLiving


       Always remember . . . Immanuel: God is with you!
