Path Called Righteousness
If I had Wings…
“Oh, that I had wings of a dove! I would fly away and be at rest.” Psalm 55:6 The stresses of life can be so overwhelming. I often fall into the discouragement of situations, rather than focus on the One who truly cares for me and is ready to sustain me. Bearing the burden of crushing weight actually gives Christians wings. This may sound like a contradiction in terms, but it is a blessed truth. While enduring a severe trial, David cried, “Oh, that I had wings of a dove! I would fly away and be at rest.” Yet before […]
Awakened in my Faith!
“Aroused by faith, Moses, when he had grown to maturity and became great…” Hebrews 11:24 It is interesting that Moses had to be aroused by faith. The word “arouse” means to be awakened; to be stirred up and awakened from slumbering. We can get so consumed and overwhelmed with the struggles of life that we become discouraged to the point that our spirit slumbers, or shuts down and sleeps. When you give in and are overcome by discouragement, you have a slumbering spirit. An awakened spirit keeps you focused on what God is doing; even in the midst of trouble, […]
Are you Stressed, Tired, and Burnt-out?
“Oh God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land…” Psalm 63:1 Life can be very difficult at times. The stresses that we face each day can often be overwhelming and leave us exhausted and frustrated. There is a deep well within us that must be filled up daily. When this well has not been filled, you will find yourself dry and thirsty. Jesus said, “If any man thirst let him come to me and drink.” (John 7:37) Jesus is the fountain where we go to drink; He […]
Searching My Heart
“Search me Lord and know my heart, try me and know my ways and see if there be any wicked way in me and lead me in the way everlasting.” (Psalm 139:23-24) All through Scripture we are encouraged by the Lord to examine our heart. It is obviously quite important and should be done regularly and prayerfully. The psalmist David prayed, “Search me Lord and know my heart, try me and know my ways and see if there be any wicked way in me and lead me in the way everlasting.” (Psalm 139:23-24) David said, “Any wicked way”, this would […]
Hearing the Voice of God
“Be still, and know that I am God” Psalm 46:10 What does the voice of God sound like? It is a distinct sound that we hear with our spiritual ears? Spiritual ears are skilled to hear the voice of the Lord and they attain this skill through seasons of stillness. A skilled bird watcher has ears that are tuned to hear the sounds of birds. He can walk outside and at once identify various birds. Each bird has a unique and distinct sound that sets that bird apart from all the other birds, but it requires an attained skill to […]
