Spiritual Night Vision

In today’s culture, many people have the opinion that we should live by our own standards, oblivious to the Word of God. Some want the blessings of the promises of God, without having a faith of Him or faith in Him. However, to truly be happy and fulfilled, we should examine ourselves in the light of God’s Word and live by it.

Psalm 119:105 says, “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.”

Faith is your spiritual night vision. It cuts through the darkness and shows you the way. It sheds light when darkness is overwhelming.

The stress and tensions of life become unbearable when we don’t have faith in God and His Word. Faith in God and His Word relieves the stress today’s culture imposes.

Faith is empowering; Faith in action brings victory!

Art of Life

Psalm 16:11 “You will show me the path of life; In Your presence isfullness of joy; At Your right hand arepleasures forevermore.”

LORD, it is not life to live,
If Thy presence Thou deny;
Lord, if Thou Thy presence give,
‘T is no longer death to die.
Source and giver of repose,
Singly from Thy smile it flows;
Peace and happiness are Thine;
Mine they are, if Thou art mine.
We live from day to day, as it were, by chance; and forget that human life itself is as much an Art, governed by its own rules and precepts of perfection, as the most complicated profession by which that life is maintained or adorned.
The art of life consists in taking each event which befalls us with a contented mind, confident of good. This makes us grow younger as we grow older, for youth and joy come from the soul to the body more than from the body to the soul. With this method and art and temper of life, we live, though we may be dying. We rejoice always, though in the midst of sorrows; and possess all things, though destitute of everything.

Winning Walk

Psalm 119:165 “Great peace have those who love your law; nothing can make them stumble.”
(Form Dr. Ed Young) Some years ago I was jogging through Houston’s Memorial Park, and took a painful fall. My problem was that I relaxed my focus on the path to speak to another runner. Before I knew it I had stumbled and thudded to the ground, gashing my head and face. As we move through the world, it’s vital we keep our eyes on God’s path. If we do that we need not fear stumbling. For the ancient Jews, that meant constant observance of the Law. But in the New Covenant, watching the path means keep our eyes on our Forerunner, Jesus Christ.
