A Birthday Affirmation


I solemnly reaffirm on my seventy-first birthday: Not to conform to the tendencies of the times, which insist on only positive "truth", but to declare TRUTH... PERIOD... regardless of its unpopularity. Society has gone mad in its hatred for God and is now coming after His people. There is only one hope and that is a restoration of the fear of God... Join with me in the prayer that our Lord taught us to pray: "Hallowed be Thy name", even in this godless society, even in a chuch plunging head-long into apostasy, and in my life, above all, sanctify Your name!

From the Daily Meditations in the Psalms which I compiled from my notes on the Psalms many years ago.

Psalms 64:7-10

8. But God shall shoot at them with an arrow; suddenly shall they be wounded.
9. So they shall make their own tongue to fall upon themselves: all that see them shall flee away.
10. And all men shall fear, and shall declare the work of God; for they shall wisely consider of his doing.
10. The righteous shall be glad in the LORD, and shall trust in him; and all the upright in heart shall glory.

We can do nothing better than to put our defense in God’s hands. The power of the word of God is just as sure in destruction as it was in creation. David trusted in the Lord in his conflict with Saul. His intelligence system could not penetrate the depths of the plot against him. He told his men that God would bring his enemy down. Saul’s popular support disappeared in the hour of crisis and his wound was self-inflicted – he fell on his own spear. 

There are times when awakening comes to the general populace as the Spirit of God moves. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom and when men learn to fear God, He opens their spiritual eyes. It is no wonder that the demons of this age have come up with so many psychological arguments to ward off godly fear. We need to pray, work, and preach so as to restore it.

David often turns his private prayers or testimony into concern for the “trusters”, those in whom God works to establish His righteousness by faith. They have surrendered themselves wholly into His hands. Their day will come for rejoicing, as fear grips people’s hearts and they begin to wisely consider God as a reality. He will bring many to repentance and salvation.
