Our choice!

WHOPsalm 94v8-15

Understand, you senseless among the people;

And you fools, when will you be wise?

He who planted the ear, shall He not hear?

He who formed the eye, shall He not see?

He who instructs the nations, shall He not correct,

He who teaches man knowledge?

The Lord knows the thoughts of man,

That they are futile.

 

Blessed is the man whom You instruct,

O Lord,

And teach out of Your law,

That you may give him rest from the days of

adversity,

Until the pit is dug for the wicked.

For the Lord will not cast off His people,

Nor will He forsake His inheritance,

But judgement will return to righteousness,

And all the upright in heart will follow it.

 

This morning while I was in church, the Lord gave me the above scripture and I still meditate on it. It says a lot, too much to absorb at once.

I believe that the Bible tells us tons about our Lord, His character, His will, His instructions. At times, we read the same scriptures and new revelation comes to us depending as well to the certain circumstances we are in. I do not mean that the Lord changes what He says or that there is a hidden message, it is just how reflects on us, a different perspective, becoming a deeper knowledge into our life.

Preachers, sometimes, try hard to find a hidden idea or something mysterious, the moment that the Bible was written to be understood as it is and to be understood by all humanity at any era of civilization!

I do agree that there are things which we do not comprehend, still, they are not written in a cryptic way. They do in a symbolic way and takes some understanding but most of the writings are just as they were written.

Blessed is the man whom You instruct,

O Lord,

And teach out of Your law,

That you may give him rest from the days of

adversity,

Until the pit is dug for the wicked.”

 

We hate instructions, we love comfort and mercy, we desire provision but instructions are not our thing! Teaching not welcomed! Yet, we love to teach others! Ah, Christians…we are a strange race!

True, as mentioned above, we do not understand all, especially how the Word applies in daily practicalities. How can we have His protection as his children and at the same time become sick? Just an example. So, we try to teach anything that make sense, manipulating the word in order to explain the fact/incident.

The Bible says that “Blessed is the man whom You instruct, O Lord, And teach out of Your law”, in few it means that it is a blessing to learn His instructions and be taught His commandments, His principles, His desire. Why?

 

That you may give him rest from the days of adversity,

Until the pit is dug for the wicked.”

 

Life is not a cleared smooth path. It is exactly the opposite. In addition, it seems that there is a lot of injustice in this world (obviously as the devil is the master on earth!)

So, what do we do in this case? How could we live with injustice, misfortune? Normal to think “where God is in all that”! The pit for the wicked won’t be dug immediately, it will take time and till that happens we will keep seeing injustice in personal level, social and global. We will keep noticing that the wicked ones seem as the winners and the misfortune follows only us!

Still when we know the instructions and His teachings we will have rest within the adversity! Rest = Peace. The reason is because we will have a good understanding of what He is doing and where we are destined to be.

We can receive the adversity deep inside us and remain miserable, complaining and whining or we can get the opportunity to open our ears hearing His instructions and learning His teachings that become our rest, that become our strength, that become our weapons.

Our choice!

    I love this because it’s so true! “We hate instructions, we love comfort and mercy, we desire provision but instructions are not our thing! Teaching not welcomed! Yet, we love to teach others! Ah, Christians…we are a strange race!” Oh that we all may be open to learn of God!
