In the midst

“You will know that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I am the Lord, your God, and there is no one else; and my people will never again be disappointed.”

God will not allow our souls to be lost or for us to be disappointed in our Christian life. It is easy to be disappointed in other Christians and in our church situations, but the Lord is so faithful to us and will not allow us to be cast down and fall away from the faith. We keep our trust in Him and our eyes fixed on our Saviour Jesus. There are many disappointing things that happen, but if our gaze is fixed on what the Lord is doing and on His person, we will not be disappointed. Our hope is not in humans but in the Lord Jesus. 

We can become disillusioned with the Christian culture and the social situation, and we must not allow that to makes us disillusioned with our life in Christ. We guard our hearts jealously and keep the light of our faith burning brightly in the middle of all turmoils and trials. 

As Christian people we are more than bodies but have souls that are now made alive to God and they must be fed and kept right in fellowship with the Lord. If we are disobedient and disrespectful of the Lord and His ways, we cannot expect to be in that close place of fellowship with Him. This is why it is so important to keep short accounts with the Lord and to be very careful to honour and obey Him who loves us and who we also love in return. 

The Lord will be in the very centre of our lives and dwell amongst us with great power and glory. We will be able to see it and our faith will be rampant against the disappointments of life, in that we will not be disappointed in the Lord and His spiritual provision for us. He himself will dwell in the midst of us, in our life, psyche and circumstances. We can trust in him because of who He is and what He has done. 

“I heard a loud voice out of heaven saying, “Behold, God’s dwelling is with people, and he will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God.”

Revelation 21:3
