MEDITATIONS ON THE TRUE CHRISTIAN LIFE
By Glenn H. Jackson
______...."This book of the law [the Word of God] shall not depart from [always be in]
your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful [take heed] to do according to all that is written in it; for THEN you will make your way prosperous, and THEN
you will have success".... Joshua 1:8 NASB
WHAT ETERNAL LIFE DOES
[part 5 of 8]
"Be Not Dismayed For I Am Your Father-God"
*____How divinely beautiful is the home life pictured by Jesus. Isaiah 41 :10: is a New Testament picture of the believer in his daily life: "Fear thou not, for I am with thee; be not dismayed for I am thy
God; I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness." This scripture is particularly precious. He is whispering to us in our daily walk. In the morning before we go to the office or our place
of employment we hear, "Fear thou not, I will go with thee.
____"I will go ahead of you. I will prepare everything for your coming. I will watch over
you today. My eye of love is upon you. "No circumstance shall imprison or intimidate you today. My grace is all that you need.
____"I am the strength
of your life. I am your ability at every crisis. I am thy God." I love to think of Him as my Father-God. No Father ever loved his child as He loves you and me. No one ever planned for his child as His love has planned for us. Every one of us has his place
in the Father's Love and in the Father's dreams. And when He whispers, "I am thy Father-God," there is fragrance in it sweeter than violets or roses.
It is the fragrance of my Father's love. And He wants me to know that He cares for me; that my burdens are His. He wants me to cast every anxiety upon Him. Isn't that beautiful? This is the most attractive feature of this Divine Life. He said, "Be
not dismayed, for I am thy Father-God."
____Bills may come. Sickness may steal into your home, but you are a master. You and the Father are tied up
together. He is greater than disease. He is greater than bills. He is greater than any irritation that can come into the home life. He is your Father-God.
____Jesus has become to you His right arm of Righteousness. That is what a mother whispered about her son: "You know, he has become the right arm in our home."
____He knew what she meant. He supported her; he watched over her. His son-love for his mother made him a safe-keeper of his mother. Jesus is the right arm of your righteousness. Love grows very bold with the Father in the house. Eternal Life, gaining
the ascendancy over our natural human life, swallows it up after a while. We become immersed in it.
