It seems we may be on the move out of lockdown though with a wee while to go yet before normal service is resumed and busy lives take off again. So while there’s still time let’s take 5 minutes each day, with coffee or over lunch to think about God’s word and apply it.
I’m going to try to do everything in 5 minutes, the reading the writing and the music, Hence “Gimme 5”, as opposed to gimmick 5 which it might be as well. So try this for size..... Start the clock now!
Psalm 119:105 “Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light on my path.”
Fishing for trout, sometimes well into dusk, I know what it is to stumble on a tree root or step into a hole. Lately, when it gets to that time of night and I’m moving about I’ve taken to wearing a head light like a cyclist, just to avoid the obstacles. Sadly it doesn’t make the fishing better though! Our path through life is sometimes dark and troubling, we can’t see the way clearly and there are pitfalls to avoid or decisions to make. Who better to show us those things than the one who knows all things? And how does he most often do that? Through his word simply that!
So if you’re for real and want to know the way to avoid the problems or see the way ahead make it a daily habit to read God’s word and pray for insight from the Holy Spirit.... or light for your path. Just to warn you though, don’t expect always to like what you see or learn. Sometimes the problem is not a matter or sight or understanding but of will and that is something that you’ll have to resolve with God.
Lord in darkness or in trouble help me to seek your path and understand your will for my life. Conform my will to your perfect will and walk with me. AMEN
