Food for Thought


Faith Over Fear - “The one who trusts will never be dismayed.” Isaiah 28:16

The past 10 days (as I write this) had been somewhat difficult. Our son-in-law had had surgery for a ruptured colon. We were praying for good test results, knowing one possibility was cancer. I was waiting for test results from a mammogram that had not turned out well. Then Jerry tested positive for Covid.

Disappointed we could not attend church, we turned on a church service out of Orlando, FL, that we listen to. The sermon title was: “It Gets Worse Before It Gets Better.” Was this really something I wanted to listen to right now – getting worse before it gets better??

The sermon focused on Moses being called to lead the Children of Israel out of Egypt. Moses was reluctant. He said, “Who am I, that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the Israelites out of Egypt?” (Exodus 3:10)  God talked with Moses for a long time telling him different signs he could do and still Moses was reluctant saying he was “not eloquent” but was “slow of speech.” (Exodus 4:10)  God said, “I will help you speak” (Exodus 4:12), and Moses said, “Please send someone else.” (Exodus 4:13)  Finally, once he was told his brother Aaron would go with him, he agreed to the task. Aaron would speak for him to Pharaoh and all would be well. Right? Wrong!

Then things got worse – much worse. Pharaoh refused to let Israel go and decided they needed more work to occupy them. They now had to find their own straw for making bricks, could not make the quota of bricks needed, and everyone from Pharaoh to the Israelites to Moses was upset!

God talked with Moses and promised deliverance. Moses relayed the message to the people “but they did not listen to him because of their discouragement and cruel bondage.” (Exodus 6:9) Then the ten plagues fell, Pharaoh relented and let the people go. But he soon decided he had made a big mistake and pursued the Israelites with his army. The Israelites were now faced with Pharaoh behind and the Red Sea in front. Could things get any worse?

Of course, the Red Sea parted for the Israelites to go through, and then came together again over Pharaoh and his army. “And when the Israelites saw the great power of the Lord displayed against the Egyptians, the people feared the Lord and put their trust in Him.” (Exodus 14:31)

Later in the day I listened to a sermon by Pastor Randy Roberts. His theme was: “Let Your Faith Be Stronger Than Your Fear.” His text was Psalm 34:4: “I sought the Lord and He answered me; He delivered me from all my fears.” It was a peaceful thought for a somewhat troubled Sabbath.

(Update: Jerry’s Covid was mild, Sharon’s test results said “benign for cancer,” and our son-in-law’s cancer was found so early, the doctor said he was “very, very lucky.” That doctor was unaware of the people praying for him and the power of prayer.)


“Darkness and Development” - “You are my lamp, O Lord; the Lord turns my darkness into light.” 2 Samuel 22:29 (NIV)

When I was a child, my dad was an amateur photographer. On Sundays he occasionally took wedding pictures. During the week in the evenings he took pictures of children in a room in our basement that he had finished especially for that purpose. Next to that room was his “dark room” where the pictures were developed.

I loved to be in there with my dad and watch that process. There was a very dim reddish-orange light so we could barely see. There were three different solutions my dad dipped the photographic paper into. The first solution appeared to have no effect, nor did the second. But the third solution in my young mind was magical. Very slowly the picture began to emerge. Finally, after a few minutes the picture was fully developed. It was a process and involved darkness, and then some heat as the picture was then placed in a “drying machine.”

As I was thinking of this, I decided it sounded similar to character development. I had been reading through the book of Job. He had lost his material possessions, his children, and his health. Through it all he remained faithful and was able to say, “My Intercessor is my Friend” (Job 16:20), and “I know that my Redeemer lives.” (Job 19:25)  He could even look into the future and say, “When he has tested me, I will come forth as gold.” (Job 23:10)  In other words, in spite of the darkness he had been through, his faith was seeing the full picture finally developed.

Joseph knew about dark periods in his life. Sold as a slave by his brothers, imprisoned for something he didn’t do, but finally Prime Minister of Egypt. He was able to say to his brothers, “It was not you who sent me here, but God.” (Genesis 45:8) In other words, through the darkness, a bright picture had emerged.

Paul, too, had endured many dark periods in his life. He lists all the hardships he had endured (2 Cor. 11:23-30), but yet he could say that what had happened to him “had really served to advance the gospel.” (Philippians 1:12) Through all the darkness, Paul could see a beautiful picture emerging. He knew there would be dark times, but he could confidently say, “The Lord will rescue me . . . and bring me safely to His heavenly kingdom.” (Titus 4:13) A sinful world of darkness emerging into a picture of eternal life with Jesus – a picture we can all look forward to!
