New International Version (NIV)
6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
Good Morning my precious friends, may we all lift up those we love and care about, those who are searching, those who have lost their way, and those who are suffering unimaginable things. Remember, "Faith is the things hoped for, and the evidence of things unseen." God gives us discernment and wisdom through the Holy Spirit because we can not understand very much in our human capacity, it limits us, tricks us, and convinces us that things happening can be explained away, but this is Satan's world, Satan's backdrop, movie, and script.
But when we walk in God's light, we can than see that without it there is only darkness, we can see right through the devil's deceptions. When we get down on our knees daily, and thank God for the clarity and understanding He left us, we know it is because the Holy Spirit dwells within us, and we have the certainty that our loving Father who never breaks a promise, will never leave us nor forsake us, no matter what.
So many things we go through seem senseless and cruel. God knew we could not rely on ourselves, or our carnal knowledge. The Lord calls Satan a great deceiver who makes things enticing and logical to trick us, if he showed us the whole picture including the consequences, than no one would follow him, live in the dark, and there would be no destruction or hatred.
Jesus died so that we would know light, for before His death there was only darkness, it was in His resurrection that we received His Grace and received His light and love. He is the light that shines through us, we are just His instrument, His beacon.
My prayer for us all today is that we see the panoramic view and not the tunnel vision view, we miss to much that way, and we certainly miss what God needs us to see. God doesn't want to hide ANYTHING from us, He wants our choices to be made having all the facts.
Satan on the other hand counts on the fact that he only shares partial pictures, and partial truths, but there is no such thing as partial truth, for partial truth is a fancy term for a lie.
We thank you for this wisdom and clarity Father, for this opportunity of blogging, so that your loving children, who understand the strength of prayer and your word, can use this avenue to give thanks and glory to You.
We thank you for our full armor that we get to put on daily to protect us in the world of darkness. May the tricks and trials that the deceiver uses hold no power over us, may we lay our burdens on you as in
New International Version (NIV)
30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
Thank you, thank you, thank you. We praise you and ask this and all things in the blood and name of our Savior Jesus Christ Amen.... I pray we all have a week filled with love, light, and wisdom and that we all continue to feel the loving embrace of our Heavenly Father. Love hugs, and prayers Patricia
I hope the below poem brings you inspiration for the week ahead from my upcoming book " Poems for the Eternal Heart a Daily Devotional"
My Ray Of Light
Through all the hard times in my life,
Through all the good times too,
There's been one constant, solid source,
My ray of light...You.
You guide me through life's valleys,
You protect me from life's wrath,
You lead me in the right direction,
Along life's bumpy path.
For I am just a tiny piece,
In a puzzle that's so grand,
But still in all I'd lose my place,
Without Your guiding hand.
So though I cannot see at times,
And I stumble through the night,
I'm always sure I'll find my way,
For I have my ray of light....
