The Maze Of This World

Article written by Brother Bledsoe

I the LORD have called you in righteousness, and will hold your hand, and will keep you, and give you for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles; To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house. I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.
Isaiah 42:6-8

Do you remember the time that the Lord saved you from your sins? Do you remember the joy that you had when the burden of sin of was lifted off you and you knew that you were forgiven?

Free To Live Righteously

It was the Lord who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light. It was He who called you to live a holy life and it is He who guides you through the maze of this world, and it is He who entered into a covenant of love with you and signed that covenant with the blood of His only begotten Son. It was He who opened your sin blinded eyes that you might see the true condition of your soul. It was He who opened the prison doors and led you into the freedom of redemption so that you are now free to live righteously because sin does not have dominion over you. It was He who gave you Holy Spirit’s power to be His witness in this confused and sinful world.

Therefore, don’t you think that it should be to Him that all praise and glory belongs? He said, “My glory will I not give to another.” In Isaiah’s day the people were worshiping images of their own making which He had forbidden them to do. Because of their idolatry He permitted foreign powers to invade them and take them into captivity. They praised their man-made gods when they should have praised only Jehovah.

What will happen when we praise anything or anyone above our Lord? Has not a foreign enemy invaded our land? Just asking. Let us return to the Lord. He said that He would forgive our sin and would heal our land. What do you think? Amen!

What Is Your Greater Need?

What is your greater need? Since only you and the Lord know what that is, you will need to take it to the Lord yourself.  When you do, you will find that many of the lesser needs will begin to seem insignificant and they will begin to fade away.
