Rabbi Schneider - Will God Guide Us?
Shalom beloved. Baruch Hashem, bless the name of the Lord. This is Rabbi Schneider. I'm in the old city right outside the walls of the city. I'm going again today to Psalm number 73. It's such a beautiful, powerful prophetic word. I pray that it blesses you like it does me. I'm reading today from the start at the 23rd verse. The Psalmist says, "Nevertheless I am continually with You; You have taken hold of my right hand". I mean just think about the confidence. Just think about the sense of God's presence that the writer of the Psalm wrote here. He said, "Nevertheless," he was facing some difficulty. He said, "Nevertheless I am continually with You". He experienced union with God. And then he continued and he said, "You have taken hold of my hand". In other words, "You have taken hold of my right hand. You're gonna hold me up".
What a confidence to know that God loved him so much, that God was always with him, that he was in union with God and that God was upholding him by His power. I mean it's just tremendous. I mean just confessing that, just gives me a sense of being surrounded by Hashem, by God's presence. Let me read it again and we'll go on. It says once again, the 23rd verse, "Nevertheless I am continually with You; You have taken hold of my right hand". And then he continues, "in the counsel You will guide me". I mean we often times fear about the future. You know we fret and worry about circumstances that could happen in the future, but the Psalmist is declaring here, "You're with me and I'm confident looking forward, because You're gonna guide me".
I mean think about how much worry you and I would break off our lives if we had the confidence, number one, that God was with us. Secondly, that He was gonna uphold us, that we weren't gonna stumble. And thirdly, as we move into the future we don't know what it's gonna be or what it's gonna look like, but we have the confidence to know that whatever we walk through in the future Hashem, Father God is gonna guide us through Yeshua. Beloved this is Rabbi Schneider today. I hope that strengthens you as much as it strengthens me. I love you and I hope you'll pass this on to a friend.
