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; […]

Valley Low Or Mountain Height

Valley Low Or Mountain Height

On more than one occasion the Apostle Paul had been imprisoned for the gospel he preached, but on no occasion do we find him sitting there in despair and gloom. Remember in Acts 17 he and Silas conducted a prayer and praise service in a jail cell at Philippi with their feet fastened in the […]

Who Knows The Way?

Who Knows The Way?

Often the pathway of life is obscure in the distance to our vision. In Joshua 3:3-4 the Israelites have come to such a place having reached the border of Canaan, the land God had promised to give to Abraham and his descendants. The final hurdle was to get across the Jordan River, now in flood […]

God’s Ways/Our Ways?

God’s Ways/Our Ways?

Probably one of Israel’s greatest pitfalls, along with Idolatry and Adultery, was their discontentment and dissatisfaction. Time and again we read about their murmuring and complaining against the Lord and against the leadership He set in place, see Exodus 16:7-8; Deuteronomy 1:27 and numerous other scriptures, (and it is quite evident that God takes it […]

Life Giving Blood

Life Giving Blood

During the time of year we call the Passion season our attention is drawn to the sufferings of Jesus after the “Last Supper”, which leads us to focus on His blood that was shed for us. Peter writes, in 1:18-19 of his first epistle that we were redeemed “with the precious blood of Christ.” In […]

The Path I Tread

The Path I Tread

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.” (Proverbs 3:5-6). The tendency of our human nature is to figure it out ourselves; but, like a traveler who does not follow the map, we end up at […]

The Power Of God’s Word When We...

The Power Of God’s Word When We Follow Its Directives

Numerous times in the Bible men were instructed to wait on the Lord, wait for the Lord, or to stand still. Yes there are times when we must “roll up our sleeves” and go to work, but then there are times when the task is too great for us; our intellect is insufficient, or we […]

The Promise

The Promise

Heaven; a place many people talk about, but relatively few are preparing to go to! It is a place of indescribable beauty, splendor, abundance, and tranquility from the description of its capitol city given in Revelation 21:1-22. In John 1, Jesus tells His disciples (who were probably troubled because of His impending departure from them) […]

God’s Way

God’s Way

Psalm 139:3 in the Amplified Bible reads, “You sift and search out my path and my lying down, and are acquainted with all my ways.” In the language of the Psalmist David, to sift out meant to toss about, by implication to diffuse and winnow; so the picture is that of threshing grain, in which the grain is removed […]

Better… (Part 5)

Better… (Part 5)

Proverbs 14:2 says, “There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death”, and the same words are repeated in 16:25. The truth is that the fallen nature of man drives him through darkness, and by deception makes him think he is on the right way, while all the time his […]
