Tuesday’s Torch 560

November 5, 2019

 

Things have been quite difficult for me for a while now.  I’m dealing with something that I never would have expected I’d be faced with.  I’ve been shaken to my core. My faith has been tried and tested like never before.  I’m not going into details on that trial right now for a lot of reasons. Anyways, Tonight while preparing for the torch I decided to seek a little help for what I’m going through and I figure it may just help others at the same time.

 

That search ultimately led to Psalm 112.  I’ll read it now:

 

Psalms 112:1-8.

 

“Praise ye the Lord. Blessed is the man that feareth the Lord, that delighteth greatly in his commandments.

His seed shall be mighty upon earth: the generation of the upright shall be blessed.

Wealth and riches shall be in his house: and his righteousness endureth for ever.

Unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness: he is gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous.

A good man sheweth favour, and lendeth: he will guide his affairs with discretion.

Surely he shall not be moved for ever: the righteous shall be in everlasting remembrance.

He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the Lord.

His heart is established, he shall not be afraid.”

 

I love this verse.  It speaks of delighting in the commandments. It speaks of how to secure blessings for your children.  That hits home for me as I’ve been so concerned with trying to give my children the best, and it’s a nice reminder that by keeping the commandments and being upright is one such way to do that.

 

I’m not gonna lie, at different points in my life I’ve been caught up in darkness.  I’m so blessed that the Lord provides each of us a way to escape into the light. As we strive to be upright, the verses tell us that we will receive light amidst the darkness.

 

I pray that we all may receive an extra outpouring of light as we navigate through any darknesses or trials we may be facing.

 

Now. For me the last part I shared in those verses meant a lot to me and shared a lesson that I feel I need to learn more fully.  The scripture states: “He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the Lord.

His heart is established, he shall not be afraid.”

 

So as we receive bad or troubling news, or simply news of happenings that make us sad or otherwise upset. If we are righteous, we will not be afraid of it.  We will trust that the Lord is still with us and will see us through.

 

Brothers and sisters.  I pray for each of you as well as myself that we may have our hearts fixed upon righteousness and forever trust in the Lord. So that we be not afraid when difficult trials confront us.  May we overcome.  In the name of Jesus Christ who still today makes all things possible, Amen.

Every Tuesday we talk about what He did and is still doing. The best thing God’s done is send His Son so we could be saved (John 3:16). If anyone is not a believer we pray they will invite the Lord into their lives by asking Him to forgive their sins and believing that He is the Son of God. Please share testimonies, feedback or encouraging words by email at: tuesdaystorch@gmail.comwe enjoy hearing from you.

No one lights a lamp and hides it in a clay jar or puts it under a bed. Instead, they put it on a stand, so that those who come in can see the light. Luke 8:16
