Divinely Inspired

feb-10“This will be written for the generation to come, that a people yet to be created may praise the Lord.”  Psalm 102:18 (NIV)

Splashed across the screen, the words “This is Your Life” would send any moviegoer running for cover.  Just the thought of others seeing the realness of our lives would send us under the seat and sneaking out the back door.   Even those closest to us often don’t know our whole story.  And if we’re the Director, I’m sure we would edit that script leaving in only scenes where we really “shined.”

I’m so glad that God didn’t script the Bible in that way.  Each author was divinely inspired and led as they scripted the very Words of God.  Moses could have left out his sin that kept him out of the Promised Land; however, he allowed God’s divine inspiration in filling the pages of Exodus and Deuteronomy.  His impatience, fears, and insecurities reveal to us valuable lessons in waiting on God’s timing and depending on His strength.  David’s Psalms reveal the human vulnerabilities of our souls and reassure us that even when we fail God miserably, we are still the apple of His eye.  Matthew, Mark, Luke and John could have discarded the tidbit that they doubted Christ and deserted Him in His most loneliest hour – but they didn’t.  Rather God’s anointing on their writing left those details in tact so we would be reminded of our frailty and tendency to walk by sight rather than by faith.

Amazing words that only God would have given to convey the truth of who He is – faithful, compassionate, loving, forgiving, kind, just, holy, etc.  Convicting words that only God would give to remind us that we are all desperate sinners in need of His grace filled intervention.  An epic read that is alive and active even today transforming us from the inside out.

“Father, how incredible are Your words of truth revealing our deepest need for your saving grace and redemption in our lives.”

For His Glory
