Constantly Communicating – Truth For Life – February 5

At that time Jesus declared . . .

Matthew 11:25

This is a pointed way in which to begin a verse–“At that time Jesus declared.” If you look at the context you will realize that no one had asked Him a question and that He was not in conversation with any human being. Yet it is written, “Jesus declared, I thank you, Father.” When a man answers, he answers a person who has been speaking to him. Who, then, had been speaking to Christ? His Father.

Yet there is no record of it; and this should teach us that Jesus had constant fellowship with His Father, and that God spoke into His heart so often, so continually, that it was not a circumstance peculiar enough to be recorded. It was the habit and life of Jesus to talk with God.

Let us then learn the lesson that this simple statement concerning Him teaches us. May we also enjoy silent fellowship with the Father, so that often we answer Him, and although our friends don’t know to whom we speak, we will be responding to that secret voice that they do not hear but that our own ear, opened by the Spirit of God, recognizes with joy.

God has spoken to us; let us speak to God–either to affirm that God is true and faithful to His promise, or to confess the sin of which the Spirit of God has convinced us, or to acknowledge the mercy that God’s providence has given, or to express agreement with the great truths that God the Holy Spirit has revealed to us.

Intimate communion with the Father of our spirit is a great privilege! It is a secret hidden from the world, a joy with which even the nearest friend does not interfere. If we desire to hear the whispers of God’s love, our ear must be purged and fit to listen to His voice. This very evening may our hearts be in such a condition, so that when God speaks to us, we, like Jesus, may be prepared at once to answer Him.

Involved and In Control – Today with Allen Jackson – February 5, 2020

Involved and In Control

Psalm 2:1-4

Why do the nations conspire and the peoples plot in vain? The kings of the earth take their stand and the rulers gather together against the LORD and against his Anointed One. “Let us break their chains,” they say, “and throw off their fetters.” The One enthroned in heaven laughs; the Lord scoffs at them.

Do you hear what the psalmist is saying? The rulers of the earth gather together and say, “We don’t want our plans and purposes to be inhibited by God’s plans and purposes. Let’s ignore what God wants and do it our way.” It’s not a new thing. It was true in the days of the psalmist, and it’s true today. The rulers of the earth imagine that their power and their will and their determination solely direct the course of human history. And the Bible gives us God’s response. He chuckles and says, “You think so?” It’s very easy for us to get caught up in the news of world affairs and forget that Almighty God is not an absentee landlord. Yes, He sits enthroned in heaven, but He is intimately involved in our world.

PRAYER

Heavenly Father, thank You that You are not just aware of what is happening in the earth, but You are actively involved in bringing about Your purposes. Give us strength to look to You, Lord, as we look expectantly to that day when You will be revealed in all of Your glory. May we be found faithful until that day. In Jesus’ name, amen.
