Fading Existence

As the flower of the field he shall pass away. It’s petals wilt and the beauty of it’s appearance is destroyed. So too is the man in the midst of his pursuits. At the very moment everyone is looking on in admiration at it’s beautiful face it fades away to nothing



Teach me, O LORD,

Give me understanding,

Direct my path

Psalm 119 is an incredible passage – a very full passage, and one often quoted. But I am beginning to see it in a light that I had not noticed before. God placed a word on my heart and I have been looking through scriptures since on this idea that though we often seek direction, guidance, or a word from God, we don’t accept what He offers.
We declare with our lips and in prayers that we trust Him and will do anything He asks, yet that which He has already given us to do we ignore.
So often there is a portion of our lives we desire God to move in, and yet that area He is pointing out to us we ignore.
We have our pet sins, our lazy flaws, and our hidden indulgences.
While Psalm 119 speaks of God uplifting us, strengthening, and guiding, it also shows action on our part;”I obey your statutes, for I love them greatly.  I obey your precepts and your statutes, for all my ways are known to you.” I obey, I delight in Your commands, I yield, pursue, follow…God will always uphold his promises…We don’t need to beg for His help and guidance when He so deeply wants us to have it – God gives us Scripture, discernment, and the exhortation of fellow believers in order to guide us… for us to know what we are to do and not do it… is as plain a sin as any other.Is it so very hard for us to realize that we can know what we should be doing simply by what we know today… we don’t have to see a mile ahead because God put’s the light at our feet and He knows where the path will lead.If we walk in His will there is no need to manipulate our own plan.

    I like it, even if it was a bit late.

    However, what of those who are still waiting to hear the first words? Those of us who are still waiting to find out what it is we’re supposed to be doing?
