December 6, 2023 - Didactic Thinking (Culture)

Mr. Davis is a man who is paralyzed from his chest down. But he wasn't always this way. He once worked as an engineer coding robotics for surgeons and was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis at the age of 39. Despite a series of unfortunate events, David has developed a unique insight, wisdom, plus faith in God that will provide our readers hope when feeling hopeless. Love when feeling loveless. And strength when feeling weak. Mr. Davis will provide relaunched Echo readers with weekly shares that we encourage you to support by reading his gentle memoirs and thoughts of inspiration. Kindly, Karen. To learn more about David Davis, please click the link.

The Lord has just put on my heart...

The Lord has just put on my heart the miraculous cure of a man who was born blind, John 9:1-41. We have Jesus giving sight to a poor beggar who had been blind from his birth. If we put ourselves in the condition of this poor man, He was blind and had been so from his birth. If the light is sweet, how sad must it need to be for a man, all his days, to eat in darkness! He that is blind has no enjoyment of the light, but he that is born blind has no idea of it. And the disciples asked Jesus, was his blindness the result of his parents or his sins? It is important to note that Christ cured many who were blind by disease or accident, but here, he cured one who was born blind. That shows me the marvelous thing only Christ can do; this man has not known any light or hope in his life, and Christ is glorified in his testimony of "once I was blind, now I see." The Lord can speak to those that have been crippled by some darkness in their life, not even knowing any other course in life. You have been burdened with some illness all your life, some condition your family says you just have to live with it. That's a lie from the devil. When God is about to work deliverance, he is said to see our affliction, so Christ saw this poor man. Others saw him, but not as he did. This poor man could not see Christ. Christ is often found of those that seek him not, nor see him, Isaiah 65:1 And, if we know or apprehend anything of Christ, it is because we were first known of him, Gal 4:9 and apprehended by him, Phil 3:9.

I was thinking...

I was thinking, “How can I be still? If I'm in a crisis. But that’s what God is asking me to do—stop struggling against the problem, take a deep breath, and put my hands down. But ceasing to struggle has a downside—I feel extremely vulnerable when I've lost all my defense mechanisms! This is why I need to be reminded not only to cease striving but also to “know” who God is. Knowing Him reminds me that He is not only a God of great compassion but that He has a great capacity to help. He wants me to be still and to allow Him the opportunity to be actively involved in the midst of my problem.

Maybe like Ezekiel have wondered...

Maybe, like Ezekiel have wondered, “God, all I can see before me are difficult things. Why are you leading me through this dark valley?” It is because, in the valley of dry bones, there is no other source of life. We have no breath of our own there, no power or strength. The valley of death brings us to a place of total dependency. Looking back, I thank God for every moment. In the midst of all my life’s dry bones, I see that God orchestrated a place where my life ends and His life begins.

It’s not the act of giving but the sacrifice in giving...

It’s not the act of giving but the sacrifice in giving that makes the greatest statement about true love and dynamic selflessness. So, what do you have in your hands today? How about some time? Maybe some abilities or talents that could be used to serve others. Maybe it’s financial resources. A smile, a note in the mail, a reassuring phone call, or a combination of sacrificial acts of love go a long way to opening the door to making a difference in someone’s life. Right now, you may be saying, “But I don’t have much to give.” You’ve done the math, and it seems like it will be a drop in the bucket compared to the depth of the needs around you. And humanly speaking, you’re probably right. How can we possibly make a difference in the face of the overwhelming physical and spiritual needs around us? That’s just the point. We can’t! But our gifts of love—regardless of the size—open the door for Jesus to do some surprisingly great things. As has been often said, “Little is much when God is in it!” When you give in Jesus’ name, you invest in the One who can “do immeasurably more than we could ever ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us” (Ephesians 3:20). If a little kid could give up his lunch for Jesus, we’ve got no excuse!
