Reading Time: 4 minutes

For I tell you that this [Scripture] which is written must be completed and fulfilled in Me: ‘AND HE WAS COUNTED WITH THE CRIMINALS’; for that which refers to Me has its fulfillment [and is settled].” [Isa 53:12] (see Luke 22:37, AMP)

There are many reasons today why people are running scared. It seems there is no end to the confusions and propaganda thats been called “news” all of which seeks to raise the FEAR factor to measures never before known on this planet. The whole world is rampant with no foundation, other than doubts and fear. Yet, everyone wants to be an “expert” and tell us their brand of confusion is better than yours or mine. As a person who has had a lot of trials and life-threatening life circumstances, I thought for sure my brain was toast, or would be toast with all that is going on around us until the happy day when I found the perfect solution. Yes. You heard me right. I don’t even know what the question is; but I know what the answer is! Praise GOD from whom ALL blessings flow!!

The ANSWER I have found actually has a name: JESUS…IMMANUEL. God with us! (Isa 7:14, Mat 1:21)

God with us, in and through His word. The Bible! (Psalms 119:105, Prov 6:23, Psalms 19:8)

Isa 7:14  Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Listen carefully, the virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and she will call his name Immanuel (God with us). [Isa 9:6; Jer 31:22; Mic 5:3-5; Mat 1:22-23]
Mat 1:23  “BEHOLD, THE VIRGIN SHALL BE WITH CHILD AND GIVE BIRTH TO A SON, AND THEY SHALL CALL HIS NAME IMMANUEL”–which, when translated, means, “GOD WITH US.” [Isa 7:14]

It is a law of the mind that it gradually adapts itself to the subjects upon which it is trained to dwell. If occupied with commonplace matters only, it will become dwarfed and enfeebled. If never required to grapple with difficult problems, it will after a time almost lose the power of growth. As an educating power, the Bible is without a rival. In the word of God the mind finds subject for the deepest thought, the loftiest aspiration. The Bible is the most instructive history that men possess. It came fresh from the fountain of eternal truth, and a divine hand has preserved its purity through all the ages. It lights up the far-distant past, where human research seeks vainly to penetrate. In God’s word we behold the power that laid the foundation of the earth and that stretched out the heavens. Here only can we find a history of our race, unsullied by human prejudice or human pride.

In the Holy Bible, are recorded the struggles, the defeats, and the victories of the greatest men this world has ever known. Here the great problems of duty and destiny are unfolded. The curtain that separates the visible from the invisible world is lifted, and we behold the conflict of the opposing forces of good and evil, from the first entrance of sin, to the final triumph of righteousness and truth; and all is but a revelation of the character of God. In the reverent contemplation of the truths presented in his word, the mind of the student is brought into communion with the infinite mind. Such a study will not only refine and ennoble the character, but it cannot fail to expand and invigorate the mental powers. {CE 65.1}

I was so excited when I found this quote, because I thought it meant that my poor brain would be recharged. renewed. And made into a new, vibrant thing. (2 Cor 5:17)

Our life is to be bound up with the life of Christ; we are to draw constantly from Him, partaking of Him, the living Bread that came down from heaven, drawing from a fountain ever fresh, ever giving forth its abundant treasures. If we keep the Lord ever before us, allowing our hearts to go out in thanksgiving and praise to Him, we shall have a continual freshness in our religious life. Our prayers will take the form of a conversation with God as we would talk with a friend. He will speak His mysteries to us personally. Often there will come to us a sweet joyful sense of the presence of Jesus. Often our hearts will burn within us as He draws nigh to commune with us as He did with Enoch. When this is in truth the experience of the Christian, there is seen in his life a simplicity, a humility, meekness, and lowliness of heart, that show to all with whom he associates that he has been with Jesus and learned of Him. {COL 129.3}

In those who possess it, the religion of Christ will reveal itself as a vitalizing, pervading principle, a living, working, spiritual energy. There will be manifest the freshness and power and joyousness of perpetual youth. The heart that receives the word of God is not as a pool that evaporates, not like a broken cistern that loses its treasure. It is like the mountain stream fed by unfailing springs, whose cool, sparkling waters leap from rock to rock, refreshing the weary, the thirsty, the heavy laden. {COL 130.1}

But the LORD’s portion is his people, Jacob his allotted heritage.

“He found him in a desert land, and in the howling waste of the wilderness; he encircled him, he cared for him, he kept him as the apple of his eye. 
Like an eagle that stirs up its nest, that flutters over its young, spreading out its wings, catching them, bearing them on its pinions, 
the LORD alone guided him…(Deut 32:9-12)

Vance Havner once said:

“When you find a Bible that is falling apart it usually belongs to someone who isn’t.”
