The Way of Life

My son, observe the commandment of your father
And do not forsake the teaching of your mother;
 Bind them continually on your heart;
Tie them around your neck.
 When you walk about, they will guide you;
When you sleep, they will watch over you;

And when you awake, they will talk to you.
23 For the commandment is a lamp and the teaching is light;
And reproofs for discipline are the way of life 

Proverbs 6:20-23

  I'm sure you will agree with me that nothing else compares to when God's word leaps off the pages and Jesus himself is opening it up to you. I can see how in my own walk, when God has brought the correction and instruction of His word, I have been truly grateful. 

   Of all the trials of life there is one snare that can pierce you through and shipwreck you, keeping you from the way of life.

  It's the worries of the world, the cares of this life and the lusts and desires for other things that in my opinion are among the deadliest of schemes. They choke God's word and keep it from bearing good fruit in your heart. 

I believe we are coming into a time of absolute excitement of what God is going to do. Opening blind eyes, healing the brokenhearted and the Gospel of Christ being preached to the poor. 

 If our hearts are divided we will miss being a part of all God is doing throughout the world in this time. Today as you reflect upon this, don't harden your heart, cry out to the Lord for an eternal perspective. Keep walking in the light He gives you and let the joy of the Lord be your strength.

“Ho! Every one who thirsts, come to the waters;
And you who have no money come, buy and eat.
Come, buy wine and milk
Without money and without cost.
“Why do you spend money for what is not bread,
And your wages for what does not satisfy?
Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good,
And delight yourself in abundance.

Isaiah 55:1-2
