Follow The Light
"Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path." Psalm 119:105
There is nothing that can penetrate darkness but light. It doesn't make a difference how dark a room gets the only thing one must do to change the situation is to turn on a light. Even a candle as small as it is will eliminate darkness. There are times when we have those dark periods and we just need something or someone to bring us out of the place we are in. The Word of God is so powerful it will illuminate the darkest of situations. The Scripture reminds us that, thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
Power To Endure
"Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might." Ephesians 6:10
There are times when the things in life have a tendency to wear on us. There have been times when we just wanted to throw up our hands and walk away. We become weak with trying to maintain our situations and feel we don't have the strength to make it through. Paul in this Scripture reminds us to, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. To be strong means having power to resist or to endure, it also means not easily subdued or disturbed. We have the power from The Lord to endure the things that try to come against us.
Throw Off The Weight
"Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us." Hebrews 12:1 (NIV)
Have you ever felt like the weight of the world was on your shoulders and yours alone? You look around at family and loved ones and it doesn't seem like they are going through anything at all, and you have trials and tribulations on every hand. It seems like you are carrying the load all by yourself, and you can't even get a break through any more. You try to pray and prayer seems not to work because of all the things that you are carrying. The writer of Hebrews reminds us, to throw off everything that hinders us.
Give God The Glory
"Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name: bring an offering, and come before him: worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness." I Chronicles 16:29
Each of us at one time or another has heard someone say, “The Lord has been good to us”, but if we truly realize the depth of this statement we would come to the conclusion that it is only partially true. The truth of the matter is not only has The Lord been good to us, but also The Lord is good to us. He continues to bless us and continues to keep us no matter what is going on in our life. The Lord is good and because of His goodness, mercy, and grace we His people should give Him the glory due His name.
