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

PRESIDENT TRUMP'S TRUE HISTORY

3/14/2019 10:48:00 AM BY Ron Susek

        There is a surprising and verifiable fact about President Donald Trump that you will want to read in today's edition of FaithWalk: Courage for the Journey.

                                             

President Trump’s True History
by Ron Susek 
@Golden Quill Publications


. . . making known to us the mystery of his will, according to his purpose, which he set forth in Christ as a plan for the fullness of time, to unite all things in him, things in heaven and things on earth. 
(Ephesians 1:9-10)  
  
        1949.  The Island of Lewis in the Hebrides (off the coast of Scotland) was struck by a revival that shook the islanders at the time, and in varying ways continues to impact the world to this day.

        It began in the late 1940s on the small Scottish island of Lewis in the village of Barvas.  Two Smith sisters, Peggy who was blind and Christine who was arthritic, began to pray.  Peggy received a revelation that revival was coming.  Some Christian leaders met in a barn to pray, not for others, but for their own cleansing.  
 
        Soon revival broke.  A fifteen-year-old boy name Donald Smith proved to be a great prayer warrior who kept his heart close to God. He became involved in this famous Hebrides Revival which lasted three years.  
 
       Years earlier, Mary Anne Smith MacLeod, niece of the two elderly women and a cousin of Donald Smith emigrated to America and met a young man named Frederick.  They fell in love and married in January of 1936 and had five children: Mary Anne (Barry), Frederick Jr., Elizabeth (Grau), Donald and Robert.

        The one elderly sister who had prayed for revival sent her Bible to America as a gift to Mary Anne, who subsequently gave it to her son, Donald.  Today, this Bible lies in her son's office - the Oval Office - at the White House and it was one of the Bibles upon which he placed his hand to take the oath of office.  Yes, President Donald Trump's roots reach back to one of the greatest revivals in history.   
 
        No true believer has the right to withhold prayer for President Trump because of disagreement.  No flawless wonder has ever headed any nation.  Still, the Bible commands that we pray for those in authority (2 Timothy 2:2).

        Remember God's promise: "If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land" (2 Chronicles 7:14). 
 
        Do not withhold heartfelt prayer for this President by comparing him to Jesus.  We all fail that test.  Begin praying for an awakening to sweep from the Oval Office to every corner of the land.  "Therefore, confess yours sins one to another and pray for one another, that you may be healed.  The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working" (James 5:16).  Never more than today has America needed the voices of the righteous to ascend before God's throne.

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

                                                   

            
 
   
 

DON'T TOUCH THE ARK

3/7/2019 10:39:00 AM BY Ron Susek

         Have you considered the price of being greatly used by God?  There may be some heart-searching insights in today's edition of FaithWalk: Courage for the Journey. 

                                                  

Don’t Touch the Ark
by Ron Susek 
@Golden Quill Publications


Uzzah put out his hand to the ark of God and took hold of it, for the oxen stumbled. 
(2 Samuel 6:67)  

         King David led Israel to retrieve the Ark of the Covenant from the Philistines.  In the Ark were the Ten Commandments and a bowl filled with manna - reminders of God's laws and His faithfulness to deliver. 
       
        There was great joy until the oxen stumbled and the Ark began to sway.  Uzzah's name means strength, which may explain why he employed his natural strength to steady the Ark. This act of touching the Ark, however, led to his death.  

 
         There may be another reason that led to the forbidden act of touching the Ark.  It had resided in Uzza's father's home for some 20 years before being moved.  It is said that familiarity breeds contempt, and he may have become overly familiar with the holy, thus losing his reverential fear and worship of God.  Whatever the motive, it led to his peril. 

         Israel was engaged in the great work of honoring the Ark of God's Covenant by restoring it to its proper resting place.  How sad that their rejoicing was interrupted by Uzzah's fatal act. 
 
        It can sound noble to pray, "O, God, use me in a mighty way."  Wise people, however, who have had God call them to a great responsibility pled with God to enable them by changing them.  Isaiah, for instance, pled to be cleansed of unclean lips.
 
        The rule to remember is this:  When God begins a great work through you, don't touch the Ark.  Your strength cannot steady it.  You cannot instruct it.  All you will gain will be a shameful end.
 
        Every work of God has times when the oxen stumble, and it appears that it will crash to the ground.  This is when you must fight the instinct to steady it by your own strength.  We all tend to plot clever solutions rather than pray until God moves in His wisdom, time and power.  In the end this reveals our impertinence, even unbelief.

        Always remember, a work of God is just that . . . a work of God!  What God initiates He completes, no matter how badly circumstances may cause it to wobble.  Yes, do pray to be mightily used of God, but do not touch the Ark.        
 
Always remember, Immanuel: God is with you.
Your friend,
Ron

                                                 



 

GOD'S MYSTERIOUS WAY

2/28/2019 10:23:00 AM BY Ron Susek

        Have you given thought to the mysterious way God has worked in your life?  You do not want to miss today's edition of FaithWalk: Courage for the Journey.  

                                                

God’s Mysterious Way
by Ron Susek 
@Golden Quill Publications


Your way was through the sea, your path through the great waters; yet your footprints were unseen.
(Psalm 77:19)  

         It is easy at times to feel abandoned, even forgotten by God.  But as certain as the winds rush through the forests to be cleansed and renewed for the cities, God is mysteriously working His purpose in our lives.
 
        William Cowper was famed for his poetry, but much more for writing great hymns such as There is a Fountain Filled with Blood and O for a Closer Walk with God.
 
        But did you know that prior to that he suffered such mental struggles that his father placed him in an asylum for treatments?  While there, a Christian doctor presented him with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. 
    
        One day, upon reading the story of Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead in John 11 followed by Romans 3:25, God opened Cowper's eyes to the beauty of the grace offered him in the Gospel.  Here are Cowper's own words from his journal about the experience:


"Immediately I received the strength to believe it, and the full beams of the Son of Righteousness shone upon me.  I saw the sufficiency of the atonement He had made, my pardon sealed in His blood, and all the fullness and completeness of His justification.  In a moment I believed, and received the gospel . . . my eyes filled with tears, and my voice choked with transport; I could only look up to heaven in silent fear, overwhelmed with love and wonder."

         Cowper may have been reflecting upon the tumultuous road that ended in liberation by the Gospel that led him to write the words of what some say was his last song.  His words transcended generations, bringing light to many dark corners.


God moves in a mysterious way
His wonders to perform;
He plants His footsteps in the sea
And rides upon the storm.
 
Deep in unfathomable mines
Of never failing skill
He treasures up His bright designs
And works His sovereign will.
 
Ye fearful saints, fresh courage take;
The clouds ye so much dread
Are big with mercy and shall break
In blessings on your head.
 
His purposes will ripen fast,
Unfolding every hour;
The bud may have a bitter taste,
But sweet will be the flower.

 

         Despite the struggles you may face, know that God is working a plan, the mystery of which you may not understand today, but you will in time.  Your part is to endure by faith.  God's part is to fulfill His purpose. 
 
Always remember, Immanuel: God is with you.

Ron
