Psalm 119:147-149 (NASB)
147 I rise before dawn and cry for help;
I wait for Your words.
148 My eyes anticipate the night watches,
That I may meditate on Your word.
149 Hear my voice according to Your lovingkindness;
Revive me, O Lord, according to Your ordinances.
There is a God-prescribed path to Life (living as He, Our Creator, has intended) and a sustaining of that Life-force in us.
Jesus Christ, the God-Man is God’s fulfillment of His Word in the flesh. He said of Himself: “I AM the Way, the Truth, the Life. No one comes to the Life-giving Father but through Me.”
There are many paths but only One Way. There are many places offered as sources of truth, but only One that is trustworthy.
Psalm 119:160 (NASB)
160 The sum of Your word is truth,
And every one of Your righteous ordinances is everlasting.
Every cultural shift or “progressive” mentality away from HIS Word is a variance from His True North and Life. His prescription for humankind is forever. Any alteration based on “another” syllogistic logic, in order to be more stylish or in vogue…”in step with the times”, is dangerous; a move toward that which is false and death.
Deuteronomy 11:26-28 (NASB)
26 “See, I am setting before you today a blessing and a curse:
27 the blessing, if you listen to the commandments of the Lord your God, which I am commanding you today;
28 and the curse, if you do not listen to the commandments of the Lord your God, but turn aside from the way which I am commanding you today, by following other gods which you have not known.
He has presented us with a choice, every moment of every day. Who…what will we follow? The choice comes with a promise of blessing or curse, Life, or death; certainty of physical AND most importantly spiritual death.
In 2018, I commend to you the Life Giver and His forever True Way. Go North, True North…
And be blessed,
