PASTOR'S BLOG

Hello HighPoint!  I don’t know about you, but I am still finding it strange to wake up while it’s still dark.  I guess I won’t ever get used to daylight savings time.  Well, the other day I got up and as I sat, in my living room, I watched the sun come up and filter through the window of my front door.  I watched as the darkness faded into the light. I was reminded of what Jesus said in John 8:12: "I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness but have the light of life." As I sat there watching the darkness disappear with the light I found myself singing.  I couldn’t help myself.  I made up my own song telling God how wonderful He is and how marvelous His light is.  It was absolutely one of the most precious and powerful times that I have spent with the Father.  As I began to study and have my quiet time I was impressed by how powerful praise is.  The truth is that praise opens the door to God’s grace. In Psalm 1:2-3 you read: But his delight is in the law of the LORD, And in His law he meditates day and night. He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, That brings forth its fruit in its season, Whose leaf also shall not wither; And whatever he does shall prosper.” The Hebrew word for “law” is “Torah.”  The word “Torah” means, “instruction.”  So, whenever you read the phrase, “the law” it doesn’t refer to the Ten Commandments but to the totality of God’s Word, His instruction.  So, what this Psalm says is that when you meditate or ponder on God’s instruction; then your life is filled with good things.  God tells you that as you meditate on Him that He makes you healthy, fruitful, strong and prosperous.  In Hebrew, the word for “meditate” is “hagah” and it means to “ponder as well as mutter, utter or moan.”  I got to see this when we were in Israel, at the Wailing Wall.  The Jews would bring their “Torah’s” and they would stand and pray.  But they would also sway back and forth while muttering and even singing.  What they were singing is the Psalms.  You see the word “psalm” means, “song.”  This helps us understand what Paul meant when he wrote in Ephesians 5:15-21 See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Therefore, do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is. And do not be drunk with wine, in which is dissipation; but be filled with the Spirit…” The Greek word for “be filled” is in the present, passive, imperative tense.  This means that this is a command.  It’s a command and is literally translated as “being filled.” The, passive tense, means that this is something being done to you.  It means that God is filling you as you are doing something else.  Doing what? That’s found in v19, “…speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord, (this is singing to yourself and as you do this God is filling you with His Spirit.  This is “hagah.”) giving thanks always for all things to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, submitting to one another in the fear of God.” I’ve shared all of this to say that when you find yourself in a dark time just know that the morning is coming.  As you wait for His light to pierce the darkness begin to sing praises and as you do you will see that His grace ushers into your life, the light that you need for that day.  With Him, you can do all things.

 

Have a blessed day,

Pastor Walter
