Trusting, Faith, Calling and Ascribing to Jehovah #4 Transitoriness #3 Rejoicing in the insistence

Prosperity and Waiting unto Jehovah God

Request to keep up

For this it is so important that we ask God to teach us, the way of His statutes and that He gives us the possibility to keep them to the end.

Like the psalmist we may ask God to give us understanding and direction, so that we shall be able to keep His Torah. For we delight in Them.

When our heart is turned towards God His statutes and not toward selfish gain, we do not have our eyes on the wicked who seem to have a more prosperous live than us. We do know that this life on earth today is just a temporary life, and that later there will be a much more important life under the direction of the Most Mighty King. So we better turn our eyes away from looking at worthless things, which are transitory. The passing things should not worry us. Our minds should go over those brittle matters and look forward for the not ephemeral matters.

Listening to the Voice of God as it is daily available for us in the Holy Scriptures those Words shall enable us to revive us in God His ways, fulfilling His promise to His People and to those who want to do away the wickedness. God is the One who can revive us in His righteousness. In His loving kindness He took care that a solution was made to finish the consequences of the first sin. He was the One who took care that salvation could come by His beloved son.

Delight in the Word of God

We should delight ourselves in the commandments of God because we love them.

25 My being has been clinging to the dust; Revive me according to Your word. 26 I have recounted my ways and You answered me; Teach me Your laws. 27 Make me understand the way of Your orders; That I might meditate on Your wonders. 28 My being has wept from grief; Strengthen me according to Your word. 29 Remove from me the way of falsehood, And favour me with Your Torah. 30 I have chosen the way of truth; Your right-rulings I have held level. 31 I have clung to Your witnesses; O יהוה {Jehovah}, do not put me to shame! 32 I run the way of Your commands, For You enlarge my heart.
33 Teach me, O יהוה {Jehovah}, the way of Your laws, And I observe it to the end. 34 Make me understand, that I might observe Your Torah, And guard it with all my heart. 35 Make me walk in the path of Your commands, For I have delighted in it.
36 Incline my heart to Your witnesses, And not to own gain. 37 Turn away my eyes from looking at falsehood, And revive me in Your way. 38 Establish Your word to Your servant, Which leads to the fear of You. 39 Turn away my reproach which I dread, For Your right-rulings are good. 40 See, I have longed for Your orders; Revive me in Your righteousness. 41 And let Your kindnesses come to me, O יהוה {Jehovah}; Your deliverance, according to Your word, 42 So that I answer my reprover, For I have trusted in Your word. 43 And do not take away from my mouth The word of truth entirely, For I have waited for Your right-rulings; 44 That I might guard Your Torah continually, Forever and ever; 45 That I might walk in a broad place, For I have sought Your orders; 46 That I might speak of Your witnesses before sovereigns, And not be ashamed; 47 That I might delight myself in Your commands, Which I have loved; 48 That I might lift up my hands to Your commands, Which I have loved; While I meditate on Your laws.
49 Remember the word to Your servant, On which You have caused me to wait. 50 This is my comfort in my affliction, For Your word has given me life. (Psalms 119:25-50 The Scriptures 1998+)

  • Promises Fulfilled (
    When we suffer, God suffers too. Jehovah feels our pain, just as we do. / People wonder why he won’t intervene. Does God really care, after all he has seen? / Some may think God has no interest, or he is slow. Jehovah’s purposes began long ago.
  • What is Faith? (
    Faith involves trusting that God is working in the unseen spiritual realm.  We base this on God’s past actions in the world.  If we want a spiritual life that is vibrant we have to always live by such faith
  • Deuteronomy 32:misc (
    Faith involves trusting that God is working in the unseen spiritual realm.  We base this on God’s past actions in the world.  If we want a spiritual life that is vibrant we have to always live by such faith
  • Behold, the LORD makes the earth empty, and makes it waste (
    God’s people rejoice in his salvation, but his enemies suffer humiliating destruction. Their boasting cannot save them, and all their clever achievements finish in ruin.
  • Crushed, Mushed, Yet Persistent (
    If someone who had been beaten for his faith could relate to such an emotion as hope, then there must be something to it for us as well.
    Not only was Paul confident in this hope that was in God, but he wanted others to know this comfort, confidence and hope too.  His love for others placed him in danger yet he didn’t quit, withdraw, or deny his allegiance to God through the Messiah Christ Jesus.
  • How to Walk in the Sound Doctrine of Jesus Christ: The Conclusion (
    Humility and submission, coupled with faith and trust in God, opens the door to receiving from the Lord.
  • God is Faithful (
    God is faithful to do what He said He would do. The Bible says that He is not man that He should lie, if He said it, He is faithful to do it – Num 23:19 & Isa 55:11. Our hope or expectation is based on faith in God and His Word. At the same time hope acts as a catalyst for faith.
  • Your Need, Is His Name (
    Whatever you need god to be, god is. Pray and praise the names of the lord!
  • Jehovah – It is not just a name. (
    There is no better way to discover what God is like than to look at His names. Knowing Him is and should be the life long pursuit of every believer and the best way to get to know Him is to read and study what He has said about Himself.
  • Praise be to God (
    It is to that One Great God we do have to pray and have to bring praise. It is also His Name we should cry out loud. Others shall have to know the Name of God, and we as followers of Christ should bring the Good News and let this Name be known all over the world, always sanctifying the Holy Name of God Hashem Jehovah.
