Psalms114 God was Israel’s sanctuary. He proved over and over that they could depend upon Him for safety and showed the power of His presence.
He can do exceedingly beyond all that we ask or think. 2Tim 1:5-14 1Pet 4:12-19 Not everything spoken in the New Testament has the same relevance to a 21st century audience as it did to the initial audience. Some of the text was written to a specific people for a specific purpose, such as to the apostles, such as the Holy Spirit’s work. In 2 Tim 1:6, Timothy is told to kindle afresh the gift that Paul had imparted to Him. What are the lessons? Lesson #1: Use your God given abilities toward spiritual and noble ends, Rom 12:6. We each have abilities we can use for God’s good. 1 Pet 4:14, 3-5, despite your circumstances you are blessed because the spirit of God rests upon you.
Lesson #2: We can have confidence in God’s care for us even in great trials, James 1:2 Drawing proper conclusions about the work of the Holy Spirit today: Be thorough. Digest the material. Recognize figurative language. And be sure whatever the Spirit might still be doing it will be consistent with the truth already revealed to us Lesson #3: God is powerfully at work in the lives of believers today. He wills to work for His great pleasure. Faith = greater blessings. God is more concerned with our ongoing transformation than He is about fixing our circumstances right now. Lesson #4: God makes ALL things beautiful in His time. Rom 8:28. Whatever is going on in your life is temporary, it is not permanent.
