Bible In One Year-Day 284 (Saturday, October 11, 2014)
Commentary: Psalms126-130. Testimonies are of different levels. There are some in which you have to let people know about it, otherwise there will be no news of it. There are some in which you are counted just as one of them. And there are some that cannot be hidden; it announces itself and spreads like fire. For this kind of testimony, God is in it; it is in His time and there is no argument whether it is of God or not.
Isaiah 41:20 “That they may see, and know, and consider, and understand together, that the hand of the LORD hath done this, and the Holy One of Israel hath created it.”
This is a testimony of ‘no contention’; though it goes with some pains and discomforts. The people of God experienced this in Psa126.
Psalms 126:1-3 “When the LORD turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream. Then was our mouth filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing: then said they among the heathen, The LORD hath done great things for them. The LORD hath done great things for us; whereof we are glad.”
The suffering of God’s people always ends in rejoicing. Their torments always end as values. Though people may mock them in their affliction, the same people will praise God in their exoneration. This is the testimony of God’s people. What people say in your affliction shouldn’t bother you. What you need is just for God to send His word to you; once you receive His word, there will be dramatic change of situation that will put laughter in your mouth. May the Lord bless your days with His mercy and your years with His glory, IJN.
Psalms 128:1-6 “Blessed is every one that feareth the LORD; that walketh in his ways. For thou shalt eat the labour of thine hands: happy shalt thou be, and it shall be well with thee. Thy wife shall be as a fruitful vine by the sides of thine house: thy children like olive plants round about thy table. Behold, that thus shall the man be blessed that feareth the LORD. The LORD shall bless thee out of Zion: and thou shalt see the good of Jerusalem all the days of thy life. Yea, thou shalt see thy children’s children, and peace upon Israel.”
Let us seek for the old path where we could find rest. Let us listen to the trumpet’s sound, wherewith we could escape the calamity to come. Our reading for today is Psalms131-135. Keep the fire of burning and alive.
