HARMONIZED

In some Bibles usually in the New Testament, there is a great reference that is called a Harmony of the Gospels.  It is a reference using all the Gospels showing the life of CHRIST.  When all of these accounts are blended together into one complete account, or harmonized, we can see and gain knowledge into the life of CHRIST and the events that took place including the miracles.  The perspective is quite unique……it is harmonized!

The Harmony of the Gospels helps you to compare all 4 books and then to get a full picture of each event or miracle.  And it makes me wonder…….does GOD really intend for our lives to be harmonized?  Could it be that HIS blending of salvation for us with all of HIS love, grace, protection and provision make us then fully complete as HE would have us?  We all are so unique with all different gifts and HIS plan for us always works together for HIS good.  HE is and will make us complete one day, just as HE intended…..

JAMES 1: 4  “LET PERSEVERANCE FINISH IT’S WORK SO THAT YOU MAY BE MATURE AND COMPLETE, NOT LACKING ANYTHING.”

Anything we lack……..we should ask GOD for, because HE blends together and remakes us into HIS image.  We may feel incomplete, but our GOD, in each of our own unique way, is completing us, harmonizing us to HIS will. 

OUR LIVES ARE A BEAUTIFUL BLENDED CREATION BY HIS HAND.

Once HE gets hold of us and all that we once were, GOD kind of puts us into a blender, and shakes things up!  When that happens all our priorities change…….we stop living for the world and we begin to live for HIM instead. 

“ACTS 17: 28 “FOR IN HIM WE LIVE AND MOVE AND HAVE OUR BEING……”

As we walk along our paths of life, sometimes we get too comfortable, too harmonized and then GOD puts our lives completely in that blender again and really shakes things up.  One thing after another changes and one thing after another piles on top of the problems you already have, so much so that you are completely overwhelmed.  I have experienced this lately, that blender feeling.  I have been tossed and turned to no end and the support I thought I had is just not there.  But I believe GOD does this to us to see that HE is the possible in the seemingly impossible!  HE is our true support and our ROCK on which we can stand.

GOD IS THE TRUE HARMONY WE SEEK

Problems and life can overwhelm and who we turn to for comfort and rest and peace matters.  Let’s not turn to the world with it’s faulty wisdom, let’s not turn to anyone around us for all of the answers.  Let’s turn to the true GOD of the universe who loves us with an infinite wisdom. 

If we abide daily, we will find that peace and rest as we need it.  We will find that courage and strength when we need it.  We become our truest selves, in harmony with the LORD when we abide in HIM, just as the branches remain on the life-giving vine!

JOHN 15: 4  “REMAIN IN ME, AND I IN YOU.  JUST AS A BRANCH IS UNABLE TO PRODUCE FRUIT BY ITSELF UNLESS IT REMAINS ON THE VINE, NEITHER CAN YOU UNLESS YOU YOU REMAIN IN ME.”

  1. I love this, Maxine, and the picture you paint of us all “harmonized” – a little glimpse of Heaven, maybe?
    Our dependence on God, as you bring up, and our need to turn to Him, makes me think of one of my favorite passages, in Isaiah 26.3,4:
    Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.
    4Trust ye in the LORD for ever: for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength

    Amen, huh?!
