God Shares

Our memory verse this week, Psalm 100:5 says, “For the LORD is good.” I want to connect that to the Wednesday series in Isaiah 53:12: “Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.” This is God the Father speaking about His Son. God the Father will divide him, His Son Jesus, a portion with the great, the great being the many for whom he bore sin. “He shall divide the spoil with the strong,” the strong being those are strong because they have made themselves weak. Like Paul wrote in 2 Corinthians 12:10, and maybe he was thinking of Isaiah 53:12, “for when I am weak, then am I strong.” This fits in with, blessed are the meek. The meek shall inherit the earth of Matthew 5:5. The meek aren’t really weak, but they consider themselves to be weak relative to God. They need Him. We seek Him because we need Him, but when we receive Him, then we have His kingdom, His inheritance, His spoil, His portion divided to us with the Son. God the Father wants to share with us. Would we share with someone if we owned everything? I don’t think so. Even though all is for the glory of God, God shares with us, because He is Love. He is not in it for Himself. He doesn’t share His glory with another, but He shares every thing with us.
