The Path Of Life

The Path Of Life

A path is a place that is worn by footsteps, or a trail; it is a walkway for people on foot, a line of movement, and also a course of conduct or procedure. Psalm 16 11 says, speaking to God, “You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy; […]

Your Light

Darkness And Light

We are living in times of great darkness upon the earth, times like are described in Isaiah 60:2, “For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, And deep darkness the people …” While this chapter gives Israel hope of restoration from captivity, it also embraces Messianic and Eschatological times.

The Light Of Hope

The Light Of Hope

Proverbs – a book of wisdom – in 4:18 says, “… the path of the just is like the shining sun (light, KJV), That shines ever brighter (more and more KJV) unto the perfect day.” What a perfect verse to portray the journey of the righteous through the world of darkness that is all around […]

The Road Of Life
