Good News Brief–October 19, 2021

RECAP: INTO THE UNKNOWN based on Numbers 13:17-33

What separates those who are successful to take on life’s obstacles and those who choose not to venture into the unknown? It all comes down to belief. One would not try to navigate an obstacle course like America Ninja Warrior unless they truly believed the could. The same is true of us. We all face challenges, individually, collectively as a church, and as a nation. We are in a time of discernment, but also a time where we are asking “What’s Next?” We might not know what is next, for we cannot see it–it is truly unknown territory. Can we venture into the unknown?

To venture into the unknown, we have to be willing to act even when we do not know where we are going, or on the limited information we have. On the other side is where God is leading us. But we are on the edge, just like Israel stood on the edge of the promised land. Twelve spies went in. Two returned with faith, while ten returned with fear. The people weighed their counsel, and in the end wandered in the desert for forty years. How do we, in our current context, exhibit the faith of Caleb and desire to venture into the unknown and avoid the fate of Israel?

1) What is our attitude? Caleb’s attitude focused on what was good. As he explored the land, he saw that it was indeed as God promised. It was a land flowing with milk and honey, full of pomegranates, figs, and grapes. The land produced and was bountiful! In addition, Caleb’s attitude was focused on gratitude. He was thankful to be free from the grip of Egypt, and grateful for the Lord’s provision for the journey along the way.

In contrast, the ten spies had an attitude of complaint and negativity. Instead of seeing the good and the promise, they clung to all that was wrong. They focused on the fortified cities and the descendants of Anak who were present. They focused on all the work they were going to have to do to take the land of promise, and fell into a spirit of entitlement, believing that if God was in this, everything should be laid before their feet and easy. This caused the people to become disgruntled and negative.

What is our attitude? Do we focus on what is good? Are we thankful for God’s work in our lives? Or do we complain and focus on the negative? Have we bought into the entitlement mentality, that everything should be handed to us on a silver platter?

2) Avoid the “ME” trap. Caleb saw the same obstacles the ten did. Yet, he encouraged all the people that “we can take it!” Why? Because his “we” included God! But for the ten spies, their response to the same obstacle was “WE cannot take this land; they are stronger than WE are.” They evaluated the situation on their own strength and left God out of the picture. In their own eyes, there were insignificant and could not possibly win.

Too often we take ourselves out of God’s plan because we look at it through our own eyes and remove the God factor. With God, that which is impossible becomes possible. God sees a far bigger picture than we could ever see. But when we remove God from the picture, see only through our own eyes, we miss out on the greater blessing.

3) Don’t forget what the LORD has already done. When Caleb saw the obstacles and declared “we can take it!”, he had the past in mind. The LORD had already defeated the armies of Egypt (far more powerful than Canaan!). The LORD inflicted ten plagues on Egypt. It was HE who parted the Red Sea. It was HE who was a pillar of fire of protection, and cloud to point the way. The LORD provided the victory over every enemy they had faced to date. He even made manna appear in the desert for food to eat! And he spoke firmly against the golden calf. If this is who the LORD is, then there was nothing to fear! If HE did it then, HE will act again now!

But the ten had forgotten. They were so caught up in despair, that the did not go back to the past. Instead, they spread a negative report across the whole camp. They had simply come this far to die in the desert!

In our times of trouble, do we recall how God has been faithful in the past?

4) Avoid making God too small in our eyes. Caleb saw the big God and was moved to confidence. But the ten then began to amplify the obstacles. The land “devours” those who live in it. The Nephilim were present (demigod beings who were huge with superhuman strength). And they were “grasshoppers” in their sight. Did the spies get that from the inhabitants directly in an interview? If they were grasshoppers, why were they allowed to return and were not stomped out? It was because they amplified in their minds the obstacles, and simultaneously not only forgot God, but made him inferior in their eyes.

We tend to do the same thing. When we face challenges, we make God too small. And if we don’t, the enemy tries to. I still hear in my head my former boss saying: “How will your take care of your family? Where will you find a job? How will you provide?” But I also remember the LORD’s provision by providing a job the very next week! If I had listened to those voices, I would not have the three wonderful daughters I have now!

We are in a season of discernment. Truly we are going into unknown territory. But if God is leading us, we can rest assured the land will be what he says it is. Will we trust in God like Caleb and march into the unknown, or will we be like the ten, see all the obstacles, and choose to remain in the desert? Let us trust and venture into the unknown, and walk into God’s provision!

Questions for Reflection

1) When it comes to obstacles, are we more positive or negative in our approach?

2) Where would you place yourself on the continuum between gratitude and entitlement?

3)  Why is it important to avoid the “ME” trap?

4) What are you most concerned about in this season of discernment? Do you believe God can take care of it? Why or why not?

Good News Brief–October 12, 2021

RECAP: TAKE FLIGHT based on Isaiah 40:1-9, 27-31

Judah had every reason to be discouraged and weary. No matter what view you take of Bible scholarship, Judah went through a significant ordeal. If you take the traditional view of a unified author for Isaiah, then Judah had just endured and survived the Assyrian invasion. Yes, Jerusalem and the temple did not fall, but the rest of the country had been devastated. If you take a two author approach to Isaiah, then the nation is in exile in Babylon; Jerusalem and the temple had been destroyed, and the people are picking up the pieces. Either way, the nation had suffered a traumatic event and were weary, discouraged, and tired.

Have we ever felt weary, discouraged, and tired? Maybe we feel that way right now, especially when we assess the state of our country. Many of you have stated to me that you do not recognize your country anymore. Yet, even in the midst of weariness and despair, God sends us a message of comfort and hope, encouraging us to take flight. How was Judah encouraged to get there? And how will we get there?

1) Remove the obstacles. A plane that is about to take off needs a clear runway; any object in the path will affect the ability to take off and jeopardize the safety of everyone on board. The same concept was true then. When a king would travel, emissaries would be sent ahead of the caravan to “make straight” the way for the king. They were charged with removing any obstacle that would jeopardize the safety of the king.

Judah, and us today, are encouraged to do the same thing. We need to remove those obstacles first that would prevent King Jesus from being able to arrive in the midst of our weariness and despair. Sometimes, it takes an investment. It is hard work to level a mountain into a plain, or to fill up a valley so it is level ground! But it is those obstacles that trip us up and keep us from walking into the fullness of God, and keeps us grounded.

2) Place your trust in God’s Word. Judah had adopted a fatalistic worldview in light of the devastation; the grass withers and the flowers fall. In other words, there is no hope, no way to stop the inevitable. But Isaiah declared that the Word of our LORD endures forever. When God speaks, it will be. God’s Word is stronger than any obstacle or force of nature that could oppose us. Satan wants us to remain discouraged, engaged in lies and ignore the truth. But the truth brings hope and sets us free. For what God said will be will always be!

3) Make a declaration of faith. Judah was encouraged strongly to go up to the mountain top and declare, “Here is our God!” They had no reason to do so, but they were encouraged to do so because when we declare the truths of God, we remind ourselves who God is and encourage our spirits. This is not name it claim it, or a trend on Tik Tok like the 369 Manifestation, where you declare what you want to come into existence and mandate the universe to listen. No, this is declaring the very person of God (He is our help, our shield, our defender, etc.). It is also declaring what the Word declares we are (we are a chosen people, we are God’s treasured possession, etc.). And as we speak the truth, we begin to find the strength to rise.

4)Trust in, hope in and wait upon the LORD. Those that hope in the LORD will renew their strength. Just like we hold on to God for dear life like holding on to a rope on the edge of a cliff, so too we place our trust in God firmly. We might not have the strength to continue on our own, but he is our strength. And as we wait upon him, spending time with him, developing that deep relationship with him, we are filled with his goodness, his mercy, and his strength.

We are made to soar like eagles. We are not meant to struggle and scrap; we are created to soar. God has a good plan for Beaver Creek, and he has a good plan for each and everyone of us. Will we embrace the plan?

The music video, “He Believes in You,” aired during the service, written by Danny Gokey, can be viewed here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9QjOs0q1QBE

Questions for Reflection

1) What obstacles keep you from walking in the fullness of God?

2) How regularly do you invest in reading the Word?

3) What declarations of faith do you need to make today?

4) Where does your hope lie?

Upcoming Service

This Sunday, Pastor Ryan will continue the “What’s Next” series with the sermon titled “Into the Unknown,” based on Numbers 13:17-33. How can we venture into the unknown with confidence, like Caleb, instead of succumbing to fear like Israel?  Come or tune in Sunday to find out!

Good News Brief–October 5, 2021

RECAP: WAY FORWARD based on Hebrews 10:19-31

Have you ever been stuck in the mud? When stuck, it is almost impossible to get out on your own. You need help to push you out of the mud (learned this through experience!). But have we ever spiritually been stuck in the mud? Do we feel like we spin the tires of our lives, and can’t gain any traction? Have we ever felt like the more we tried to get out, the deeper into the mud we sank?

If you said yes to this, then you are in good company, for you are certainly not alone. When we are spiritually stuck in the mud, it feels like we can never see the way forward. In reality, we can say this is true with the state of Christianity in our country today! But it was also certainly true for the community of faith. They were under pressure from all sides (Romans, Jews, politics). They knew all the right answers, how Jesus was greater than Moses, David, and even the mysterious Melchizedek. But they still felt stuck, and could not see the way forward.

How did the writer of Hebrews encourage the people? What could they do to move forward out of their mud? And how can we do so as well?

1) Go to the one who can push you out of the mud–Draw Near to God. The image behind “draw near” is the same image used of a weary animal that moves hurriedly to the water as soon as it spots it! It is also the same image of the deer that pants for the water in Psalm 42:1. When we are in a place of spiritual weariness, we need to draw closer to God, for He and He alone is the one who can satisfy and help us find a way from the mud.

How do we draw near to God? We must, as the writer of Hebrews declared, have a sincere heart and full assurance of faith. The word sincere is the same word for undivided. Our heart should be for God alone and not divided in our loyalty. And to have a full assurance of faith is an utmost trust in the one we seek. In other words, we are not trying to take control. Remember, when in the mud, you need someone on the outside giving your car a push! You can’t push from outside the car and be inside at the same time. We have to let God be God in every season.

2) Follow your navigation through the mud–Hold on to Hope. The writer of Hebrews encouraged the early church to hold unswervingly to hope, for he who promised is faithful. To hold unswervingly is to follow so closely behind that whenever the Spirit moves, you move. That requires for us to know who our hope is, and to invest in building relationship with our hope so we can recognize the movements of the Spirit.

3) Help each other out of the mud–Spur One Another. The English uses the word spur, although the original Greek has more of a shade of encourage with urgency and strongly. A cowboy uses the spurs on his boots to kick the animal in a way so the animal does as is desired. In the same way, the writer of Hebrews encourages us to spur each other toward love and good deeds. In other words, we are to lovingly correct one another when we are in error with the goal of helping each other be our best selves! Sometimes, we end up in the mud because it is out of our control. But sometimes we end up in the mud by our own choice. Can we rally around each other, help each other when we are in the wrong to find freedom in Christ, and then push each other to be our best selves?

4)Take a bath–Meet Together. When you are deep in the mud, and you finally get out, your vehicle needs a bath. And what a good feeling it is to be clean! In the same way, when we are stuck spiritually, we need times of spiritual rejuvenation. The writer of Hebrews describes that as coming as we meet together. For in meeting together, not only can we push each other toward the good, but we can encourage and hold each other up, especially in dark times! But he did give a warning–many have given up meeting together. Satan wants us isolated, but our strength comes in being together, especially as we are honest with each other and can say, “I used to be in the mud too, but now I am free. Let me help you.”

5) Don’t return to the mud–Put Away Sin Once For All. The writer of Hebrews spent more time discussing this than anything else. For many had fallen into a false sense of security–now that we have been cleaned up by God, we can return to the mud, for God will clean us up again! But that is not the case; if we know the truth, and keep returning to sin, we are making a mockery of Jesus’ sacrifice. Unfortunately, many of us struggle with sin and continue to return to those areas that trip us up. But once we have been cleaned up by Christ, let us put things in place that prevent us from returning to where we were. A pig that is washed does go back to the mud; but a heart set free should stay out of the mud.

To move forward, we need to be free from the mud. God helps us get out, through the hope he offers. We can help each other be clean and rejuvenated, but the final choice rests with us–we have to stay out of the mud. Then, once we are free, we will be able to be in a place to take flight and know where we can go next!

Questions for Reflection

1) What prevents you from fully drawing near to God? Can you lay it down?

2) What is your personal devotion time like? Can you recognize the movement of the Spirit?

3) Who can we encourage to be their best self? Who might you need to talk with in the coming days?

4) What sin do you need to put away once and for all? Do you need help doing so?

Special thanks to Lynne for brining forth the word last week!

This Sunday, we will pass out a Bible for one of our rising third graders. Pastor Ryan will continue the “What’s Next” series with the sermon titled “Take Flight,” based on Isaiah 40:1-9, 27-31.
