Let us not suffer Christ’s words to depart, but keep sound wisdom and discretion; then shall we walk safely in his ways. The natural life, and all that belongs to it, shall be under the protection of God’s providence; the spiritual life, and all its interests, under the protection of his grace, so that we shall be kept from falling into sin or trouble.
Earlier today I published this article; https://romboughrobert.com/2021/06/04/has-complacency-become-the-norm-for-believers/ In the article we were encouraged to assess our position in Salvation look at our relationship and bring our temple into unison with Yeshua’s presence.
We here find ourselves being shown how to maintain the Lord’s protection. The fact here is in today’s turmoil we must be fully 100% committed.
In no way shape or form can we take our position with Yeshua for granted. We have to praise the Lord that there are a people in the world, who fear him and serve him, and that they are a happy people; which is owing entirely to his grace. Their fear is not that which love casts out, but that which love brings in. It follows and flows from love. It is a fear to offend. This is both fear and trust.
The heart touched by the Spirit of God, as the needle touched with the loadstone, turns direct and speedily to God, yet still with trembling, being filled with this holy fear.
Blessings are laid up for the faithful and their children’s children; and true riches are bestowed on them, with as much of this world’s possessions as is profitable for them.
In the darkest hours of affliction and trial, the light of hope and peace will spring up within them, and seasonable relief shall turn mourning into joy.
From their Lord’s example they learn to be kind and full of compassion, as well as just in all their dealings; they use discretion, that they may be liberal in that manner which appears most likely to do good.
They need not fear evil tidings. A good man shall have a settled spirit. And it is the endeavour of true believers to keep their minds stayed upon God, and so to keep them calm and undisturbed; and God has promised them both cause to do so, and grace to do so.
Trusting in the Lord is the best and surest way of establishing the heart. The heart of man cannot fix any where with satisfaction, but in the truth of God, and there it finds firm footing.
And those whose hearts are established by faith, will patiently wait till they gain their point. Compare all this with the vexation of sinners.
The happiness of the saints is the envy of the wicked. The desire of the wicked shall perish; their desire was wholly to the world and the flesh, therefore when these perish, their joy is gone.
But the blessings of the gospel are spiritual and eternal, and are conferred upon the members of the Christian church, through Christ their Head, who is the Pattern of all righteousness, and the Giver of all grace.
Remember, these articles are given as warnings from a humble servant as God’s Watchman bringing His warnings to the flock of impending dangers. I pray for all to be covered with Yeshua’s blessings.
Be at peace and in faith as you journey forward doing God’s calling and work. As Yeshua said, be as wise as a serpent and gentle as a dove. Times are now, we must all be aware of our surroundings, and who it is we are dealing with. “And Yeshua through the Holy Spirit said unto me, “My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness.”
