Insight to His Sight: Recognizing God’s Purpose For You
Chapter: Unity of Father and Son (Pages 15-18…)
We ought to know that the God the Father is the one in whom all decisions are made. He has the ultimate say in all things. He is the righteous judge and the Father of all. He is the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End. We are to seek Him for advice in all matters great and small.
By seeking His wisdom, we are able to find reassurance in the choices that we make. By studying His Word, we know that He understands what we are going through and gives us the sound advice that we need in order to move forward. He is master and commander in all things. There is no one who supersedes His wisdom.
God is above all and ruler of all. By knowing this, we find confidence in walking the path that he has predestined for us. By seeking Him, we are given the revelation of our part of the plan that He knew even before our existence. We must be aware of the fact that He gave His only Son the authority to judge all men according to their works.
By understanding this, we begin to see how significant the role of the Son is in Christianity. Denying the Son means denying the Father.
How do we know Jesus Christ? How would we know who He was if He were to knock on our door tonight? How would we recognize Him?
The only way we can know Him is by studying His word. We need to recognize that He is all light, and His radiance shines on us each day. He is the true light that comes into every man that desires to know Him.
Christ is just and righteous in all things, and He will judge all men according to their works. He has the last say in all matters and is the righteous judge of all.
Sow with a view to righteousness, reap in accordance with kindness; Break up your fallow ground, for it is time to seek the Lord until He comes to rain righteousness on you.
Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice; Let the sea roar, and all it contains; Let the field exult, and all that is in it. Then all the trees of the forest will sing for joy before the Lord, for He is coming; For He is coming to judge the earth. He will judge the world in righteousness, and the peoples in His faithfulness.
“But Saul, who was also known as Paul, filled with the Holy Spirit, fixed his gaze upon him, and said,“You who are full of all deceit and fraud,you son of the devil, you enemy of all righteousness, will you not cease to make crooked the straight ways of the Lord? And now, behold, the hand of the Lord is upon you, and you will be blind and not see the sun for a time. And immediately a mist and a darkness fell upon him, and he went about seeking those who would lead him by the hand. Then the preconsul believed when he saw what happened, being amazed at the teaching of the Lord.”
“From the offspring of this man, according to promise, God has brought to Israel a Savior, Jesus, after John had proclaimed before His coming a baptism of repentance to all the people of Israel. And while John was completing his course, he kept saying, “What do you suppose that I am? I am not He. But behold, one is coming after me the sandals of whose feet I am not worthy to untie.”
“Therefore let it be known to you, brethren, that through Him forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you, and through Him everyone who believes is freed from all things, from which you could not be freed through the Law of Moses.”
And it happened as they were coming, when David returned from killing the Philistine, that the women came out of all the cities of Israel, singing and dancing, to meet King Saul, with tambourines, with joy and with musical instruments. And the women sang as they played, and said, “Saul has slain his thousands, and David his ten thousands.Then Saul became very angry for this saying displeased him; and he said, “They have ascribed to David ten thousands, but to me they have ascribed thousands. Now what more can he have but the kingdom?” And Saul looked at David with suspicion from that day on.
1 Samuel 18:6–9
“Now, my father, see! Indeed, see the edge of your robe in my hand! For in that I cut off the edge of your robe and did not kill you, know and perceive that there is no evil or rebellion on my hands, and I have not sinned against you, though you are lying in wait for my life to take it. May the Lord judge between you and me, and may the Lord avenge me on you; but my hand shall not be against you. As the proverb of the ancients says, “Out of the wicked comes forth wickedness; but my hand shall not be against you.”
1 Samuel 24:11–13
