A Word from the Lord with Archbishop Foley Beach

Today, Many Christians are Asking: “Where Is God In All of ‘This’?”; Well, God Tells Us: “Return to me, and I will return to you”

Today, Many Christians are Asking: “Where Is God In All of ‘This’?”; Well, God Tells Us: “Return to me, and I will return to you”


It is better to lose all material possessions and stay in the will of God than to have riches galore and to be out of God’s will and His fellowship.

We change, but God remains faithful as we are told in Malachi 3:6: “For I the LORD do not change; therefore you, O children of Jacob, are not consumed.”. God’s people, all throughout history, have found way after way to turn away from God. Throughout history God is constantly saying to His people, despite their disobedience that He will return to us if we return to Him because, in history and today, may, but especially “God’s people, have turned away from Him. In Malachi 3:7, God says: “From the days of your fathers you have turned aside from my statutes and have not kept them. Return to me, and I will return to you, says the LORD of hosts. But you say, ‘How shall we return?”. God’s consistent commitment over time, to “return to you”, culminates in His sending Jesus into the human race so that all who believe in God through Jesus can have Salvation, Eternal Life, and a personal relationship with Him.

The people in Malachi’s time were speaking harsh words about God, and they were wondering what good was provided by being obedient to God when evildoers were prospering. Today, we are like the people of Malachi’s time when we ask: “Where was God when the bottom dropped out of my life?”. Even in these tough times, God is always with us. God challenges us that if we give to Him, then He will return to us so much more than we gave to Him; but all that we have is God’s anyway.

If we are not sowing seeds in all aspects of our lives, we will not reap the harvest of God’s promised blessings. Do not give up on God; He does not change, and He is faithful.


TODAY’S AFFIRMATIONI affirm that because of what God has done for me in His Son, Jesus, I AM A CHILD OF GOD.

Yet to all who received Him, to those who believed in His Name, He gave the right to become children of God-- children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband's will, but born of God. (John 1:12f).

SCRIPTURE REFERENCE (ESV):  Malachi 3:6-18; Zephaniah 3:1; James 4:8; Genesis 14:18; Exodus 25:2; 2 Corinthians 9: 6-13; Matthew 5:17-20.

About A Word from the Lord

The vision of A Word from the Lord is to share Biblical teaching using the instruments of radio, print, computer, the Internet, and satellite technology so that people might hear and apply the WORD of GOD and discover the Gospel of Jesus the Messiah.

In today’s world of confusing and conflicting messages from the Church, a major goal of A Word from the Lord can be summarized from Nehemiah when: They read from the Book of the Law of God, making it clear and giving meaning so that the people could understand what was being read (Nehemiah 8:8,NIV). With all the clutter in today's media venues, A Word from the Lord, seeks to proclaim in simple terms the ancient Faith of the Scriptures. As the Apostle Paul has written for us: So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ (Romans 10:17, ESV).
