I randomly opened my beautiful Bible to Proverbs today and I am looking out at my beautiful lake, all is well with the world. It is still inside my home with sleeping angels and I see the frost kissed trees and glass topped lake and I fall to my knees and thank my God for this vision He rewarded me with, however temporary. He is an amazingly good GOD!
I’ve been walking in the world for a while, ministering to those who were not quite ready for the Word. But I planted seeds, whether they will sprout and take root is not up to me. I did my duty, I am not afraid to cast my mustard seeds here and there.
But God and Solomon spoke volumes to me today: Honor is no more associated with fools than snow with summer or rain with harvest.
So while I may try vigorously to speak His Word and save a soul sometimes I may walk a path less traveled, I may wander into the wilderness and be tested by the enemy. I may stumble, I may fall, but I will pick myself up again and brush off the sins of the flesh.
So like a newly fallen snow covers the earth and kisses it with purity and brilliance, I shall repent and fall back in line with my intended route. A person without self-control is like a city with broken-down walls.
I was silent for the last few months, as l wandered through the wilderness and as I was bewitched by the world and all it has to offer: fast cars, money and power. I took a fast and furious route that led to the wrong fork in the road. But I turned around and I flew through the eye of the needle.
Have you reached a dead end road? Have you fallen and you fear picking yourself up again? Cry out to Jesus…He will wipe away every tear and carry you to the Promised Land.
