Psalm 119.119

Divine illumination

“You have removed all the wicked of the earth like dross; therefore I love Your testimonies” [Psalm 119.119 NASB]

It is not only the unbeliever who stands in need of a Damascus Road experience. Some of us, who have been involved in the work of the Lord, over a long period of time, might just need another flash of revelation and a fresh word of instruction.

In his last letter, Paul told Timothy that, "In a well-furnished kitchen there are not only crystal goblets and silver platters, but waste cans and compost buckets … Become the kind of container God can use to present any and every kind of gift to his guests for their blessing" [2 Timothy 2.20-21 The Message].

When David looked over his life, he would have been the first to admit that his circumstances had not always been easy, and he may have often wondered, "Why am I still pursuing this avenue of repeated conflict?

Why don't I do what some other people have done and place myself and my family safe on the sidelines, and enthusiastically wave at the people who are going past in the train called tribulation and trials?"

It was, at that point, that light burst forth in his mind, and he saw in an instant his present situation from an eternal perspective.

What truth did David grasp that made the difference? His powerful and at times, numerous enemies had no substance.

When my two sons were younger, I would often blow away their fears and hurts. Now, one breath of Almighty God and whatever is constantly troubling us will disappear.

What should we be doing then? We should be looking at our present circumstances from His perspective.

For example, very often we receive an e-mail with an attachment. God has done something similar in His word, where we never read about "sufferings" without "glory" being attached to it.

Remember the God-written message behind your trials and stop the train. [David McArdle]
