Father in heaven O Lord who is like unto Thee. Thank You for Your wonderful protection allthrough the week. You are Mighty. Thank You for loving and caring for us. Glory be to Your Holy Name. Father in heaven O God! Thank You for Your provision and protection on us. Thank You deliverance and healing. Thank You Lord for confirming Your Word in our lives. Blessed be the Lord who did allow our enemies to undo us but by His Mighty Hand He delivery us from all evil, He is our High place of defense, His power so great that all powers bow at His presence. Blessed be His Holy Name.
Beloved, Thank God is Friday, O! Did I just said “Friday?” Thank God is PCL my favorite day, hope you know why. Not only that I will have some rest after today, but I will have opportunity to see how to integrate the teaching of the Word and the practical side of in life situation.
In our topic for the day, it appear like the Psalmist was a great danger and was asking God to delivery him or that he was disappointed in the acts of men and was seeking for God’s help instead. But in all it is assuring us of the restful confidence that can be found in Jesus.
Beloved, how do we ensure that we walk without stumbling? Remember we said earlier in the week that God is our high defense. Yesterday we were also told that we by passing through but will not be engulfed, the most trilling part is that God will always find enough hands either to do His Work or to the destroy the works of satan.
There is much in this teaching depending on the angle you are coming from. It is assuring us of safety in our walk with God and the devises of the enemies, either way, we are secured, glory be to God.
Let’s get going:
“He will not suffer thy foot to be moved.” Ps. 121:3
If the Lord will not suffer it, neither men nor devils can do it. How greatly would they rejoice if they could give us a disgraceful fall, drive us from our position, and bury us out of memory! They could do this to their heart’s content were it not for one hindrance, and Only one: the Lord will not suffer it; and if He does not suffer it, we shall not suffer it.
The way of life is like traveling among the Alps. Along mountain paths one is constantly exposed to the slipping of the foot. Where the way is high the head is apt to swim, and then the feet soon slide: there are spots which are smooth as glass, and others that are rough with loose stones, and in either of these a fall is hard to avoid.
He who throughout life is enabled to keep himself upright and to walk without stumbling has the best of reasons for gratitude. What with pitfalls and snares, weak knees, weary feet, and subtle enemies, no child of God would stand fast for an hour were it not for the faithful love which will not suffer his foot to be moved. “Amidst a thousand snares I stand Upheld and guarded by thy hand; That hand unseen shall hold me still, And lead me to thy holy hill.”
The next message is also encouraging us to hold fast that good we are doing because the Lord is taking note and must reward You handsomely. Let keep going:
“Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy.” Revelation 3:4
We may understand this to refer to justification. “They shall walk in white”; that is, they shall enjoy a constant sense of their own justification by faith; they shall understand that the righteousness of Christ is imputed to them, that they have all been washed and made whiter than the newly-fallen snow.
Again, it refers to joy and gladness: for white robes were holiday dresses among the Jews. They who have not defiled their garments shall have their faces always bright; they shall understand what Solomon meant when he said “Go thy way, eat thy bread with joy, and drink thy wine with a merry heart. Let thy garments be always white, for God hath accepted thy works.”
He who is accepted of God shall wear white garments of joy and gladness, while he walks in sweet communion with the Lord Jesus. Whence so many doubts, so much misery, and mourning? It is because so many believers defile their garments with sin and error, and hence they lose the joy of their salvation, and the comfortable fellowship of the Lord Jesus, they do not here below walk in white.
The promise also refers to walking in white before the throne of God. Those who have not defiled their garments here shall most certainly walk in white up yonder, where the white-robed hosts sing perpetual hallelujahs to the Most High. They shall possess joys inconceivable, happiness beyond a dream, bliss which imagination knoweth not, blessedness which even the stretch of desire hath not reached.
The “undefiled in the way” shall have all this—not of merit, nor of works, but of grace. They shall walk with Christ in white, for He has made them “worthy.” In His sweet company they shall drink of the living fountains of waters.
Are you happy about this statement? Are you among the undefiled/ are your garment white as snow? Are you walking on the Lord side? Beloved this is an important question we must daily be asking ourselves. Remember for the believers we have a home apart from here. Are you walking daily to secure your space in eternity or all the daily struggles is aiming only to satisfy yourself here on earth?
Again beloved walk without stumbling before the Lord your God. food for thought – if the Lord will suffer your feet to be move, neither men nor devil can. Praise be the Name of the Lord.
See you next week by God’s grace. Enjoy your weekend and mediate on the teachings therein.
Remain blessed in the Lord.
