Hear, my son, and receive my sayings, and the years of your life will be many. I have taught you in the way of wisdom; I have led you in right paths. When you walk, your steps will not be hindered, and when you run, you will not stumble. Take firm hold of instruction, do not let her go; keep her, for she is your life. Proverbs 4:10-13
We are living in a time of great spiritual darkness with the powers of evil being poured out upon the earth, robbing, killing and destroying everything in their path! Like locusts they strip away all that is good and just in the land leaving nothing untouched by their devastating attacks on humanity.
For the believer, knowing the perfect will of God and traversing the path of life is becoming a dangerous journey with many a pitfall along the way with demonic detours to distract and draw away the unsuspecting. In order to be able to know where you are going in pitch darkness, you must be able to commune with the Father to receive direction and be led by the Holy Spirit's voice, which in many cases is being drowned out by the noise of the lusts and pleasures of the world!
The narrow road that leads to life that Jesus mentioned cannot be traveled with the trappings of the world, one must be willing to lose his life and possessions in order to enter the peace and contentment that is promised to all who would surrender to the call of Christ!
But the path of the just is like the shinning light that shines brighter unto the perfect day. The way of the wicked is like darkness; they do not know what makes them stumble. Proverbs 4:18,19
Your servant in Christ, Tim Laughlin
