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 GOD OF PERFECT GIFTS

9/6/2018 8:20:00 AM BY Ron Susek

        Do you expect God to give you perfect answers when you pray?  the Apostle James did.  Read about it in today's edition of FaithWalk: Courage for the Journey. 
                                      

The God of Perfect Gifts
by Ron Susek
@Golden Quill Publications


Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change. 
(James 1:17)

        You cannot fathom the eternal depth of God's love for you.  There is nothing known by which to measure it.  Comparisons always fall short.  You were created in everlasting, unwavering love.  As God was in creation, so He is today.
 
        This is the compelling force flowing from God's heart to every prayer that you lift.  He who gave you the supernatural gift of life also gives perfect gifts throughout your lifetime.  Genuine, pure, undiluted love knows no other way.    
 
        Faith knows this, and gives God praise even when the answer may not be precisely aligned with what you asked for.  Never tailor the answer to your prayer.  To know the perfect answer to your prayer is to elevate yourself to God's position.  It is to claim knowledge of every mystery of life.  It is to be the master and God the servant.   
        Every gift comes down from the Father of lights.  In other words, God examines your prayer in the full light of eternal perfection.  In the light of God all things are seen from the beginning to the end.  The ramifications of your prayer are examined from every angle.  And God's love compels Him to give the perfect answer.

        So let not prayer feel like a battle with God.  It is not God who needs to be overcome, but rather wrongful arguments deeply embedded in your heart and mind.  Stop evaluating God's answers as though you think you know what's best for your life.
      
        Your heart may argue that you are unworthy to pray, or that God is not interested in you, or that prayer is futile since God will do what He plans to do anyway.     
 
        Then there is the battle of unbelief.  This results from either ignorance or pride.  You either do not know how perfectly Jesus opened the door to His Father's throne, or you seek sufficiency within yourself.  Do not be like the people of Nazareth, who were devoid of miraculous acts of God through Jesus because of unbelief.

        The battle to overcome opposing forces residing within us is worth it.  This is the point where mighty answers are released.  When pure faith meets with God's everlasting love, perfect gifts are granted from above.
 
        There is no shadow of changing with God.  His love is steadfast and unwavering.  No imperfect gift has ever left His throne.  Lift your prayer and wait with hope.  Your answer will come.  And, in time, you will see that it was perfect.   
 
Always remember, Immanuel: God is with you!
Your friend,
Ron

                                  

 

 

COMPROMISE? NEVER!

8/30/2018 3:49:00 PM BY Ron Susek

        How boldly do you "preach" the truth, whether as a witness or a sermon?  Consider Paul's words to Timothy in today's edition of FaithWalk: Courage for the Journey.

                                      

Compromise?  Never!
by Ron Susek
@Golden Quill Publications

I charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus,  who is to judge the living and the dead, and by his appearing  and his kingdom: preach the word . . . 
(2 Timothy 4:1-5)

       There are two ways to abuse an audience and fail as a preacher of the Bible.  One is to turn truth into a sledgehammer, always bashing and battering people's sensitivities.  The other is to treat truth like a powder puff, only applying soft, gentile plumbs of sweet smelling powder.
 
        Here is the key to successful preaching: present the truth with grace and love, but above all, state the truth!  We are not called to lure people to the faith by compromising truth.  We are called to equip people to stand before the throne of God as mature duplicates of the likeness of Jesus Christ.

        Paul's words are so sobering that it would do well to read the text: "I charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead, and by his appearing and his kingdom: preach the word: be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with complete patience and teaching.  For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths.  As for you, always be sober-minded, endure suffering, do the work of any evangelist, fulfill your ministry" (2 Timothy 4:11-5). 
  
        In short, be loving, gentle and kind, but never compromise the truth.  God did not give Moses ten ideas for discussion, but Ten Commandments to be obeyed.  They are more absolute than gravity.  They will never pass away.  God's Word (the Bible) is absolute.  It will be precisely the same even when the heavens and earth pass in fervent heat (2 Peter 3).  
 
        The prophets and apostles were rejected, beaten, imprisoned and even martyred for speaking the truth.  And those who carried out these deeds against the preachers of truth only multiplied their own condemnation.

        We live in a time when rejection of the truth is making absolute fools of God's highest creation.  Sadly, many stand in pulpits doing verbal hand stands trying to slip a tiny bit of truth into a whirlwind of compromising terms. And they are honored by other churches longing to match their attendance.    
 
        But remember Paul's words, " I charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead, and by his appearing and his kingdom: preach the word . . .."  It is a simple choice:  be temporarily rejected by some lovers of the lie or rejected by the Judge of all time.   
 
        Compromise?  Never!   
 
Always remember, Immanuel: God is with you!
Your friend,
Ron

                                              
  

      

THE TEST OF LORDSHIP

8/23/2018 2:59:00 PM BY Ron Susek

        How do you react when God allows something unpleasant and unexpected to affect your life? Do not miss today's edition of FaithWalk: Courage for the Journey

                                        

The Test of Lordship
by Ron Susek
@ Golden Quill Publications

But Peter said, "By no means, Lord; for I have never eaten anything that is common or unclean. 
(Acts 10:14)

        It is quite easy to be stirred by a sermon on the Lordship of Jesus Christ followed by a moving song of dedication.  Our imaginations soar to the hieghts of great conquest for God.  Promises to Him flow from deep within.

        Certain that you are ready to handle any request made by your Lord, you charge into a new day, only to have a net filled with unpleasantries lowered before you and the Lord says, "Eat."                                                                                                                                            
        All of us have had those times when we rise up with "holy spunk" to say, as did Peter, "Not so, Lord!" 
 
        Now, isn't that a huge denial of the very Lord before whom we bowed in a pleasant time?  Think of what this implies!  Your refusal to partake of what God places before you implies that you view your holiness and wisdom above God's. Here you are instructing the Lord God Almighty about what you will or will not do, even using a dogmatic viewpoint to reinforce your refusal to obey. 
  
        Peter had been raised in a Jewish culture that rejected God's true purpose for them and manufactured their own rules.  They had come to despise the very people whom they were to love and be a witness.  They not only called them dogs but considered themselves defiled to enter their homes.  It was this background that caused Peter to boldly refuse to go to a Gentile's home by saying, "Not so, Lord!" 


        Think!  How many times have you said, "Not so" to the Lord?  Peter had a bad habit of saying, "Not so" to the Lord.  He even told the Lord that He did not have to go to the cross.  Peter must have been shocked to the core to hear Jesus say, "Get behind me, Satan." 
 
        Jesus will never call you to go against God's Word, but He will command you to go beyond your customs, traditions and prejudices that may be in violation of God's truth.  This is when the battle for Lordship begins.  And it falls upon you to make the choice as to which one wins, Jesus or you.  
 
        Peter eventually got it figured out and declared, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God" (Matthew 16:16).  May you and I establish such a strong confidence in the supreme wisdom of Jesus' lordship that He never hears "Not so!" from us.   
 
Always remember, Immanuel: God is with you!
