The great journey

The great journey

Faith is but the first leap, not knowing where you will end up, but knowing that wherever that may be has got to be better then where you are now. Take the first step and embrace the adventure. Embrace the beauty of the unknown. Fear not, for you are never alone in your walk through this world. During your journey you will meet people who are false profits, wolves in sheep’s clothing. People will try to drag you down; people will say things that will hurt you. It’s easier to bring pain then it is to lift you up. It’s easier to be negative then to be an optimist. Romans 8:38-39 “For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” When we walk with the Lord our path is neither easy, nor without pain, but what it is, is an adventure. Psalm 119:105 “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.” It’s a dangerous road we walk full of pitfalls, wicked wolves, and sometimes when the lights go out recall Exodus 13:21 “And the Lord went before them by day in a pillar of cloud to lead them along the way, and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, that they might travel by day and by night.” The hard part about the journey is loosing those we are close to. Our travels are like the seasons of the land. Proverbs 3:26 For the Lord will be your confidence and will keep your foot from being caught.” As an arrow flies, it’s drawn back, and fired. As an archer it’s important to be straight and true. Proverbs 4:26-27 “Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established. Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil.” As we get caught out in the cold bitter wind, the freezing cold, or the blistering heat, the enemies of the darkness will stalk you, attack you, hurt you. People will often say things to you to match their own thoughts. We are creatures of social life. Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 “Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour. For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up. Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone? And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.” Even in our need for fellowship, we must never underestimate the need, the importance of being comfortable in our solitude. Christ himself often withdrew from the crowds, the masses, the fellowship of his own deciples, this is because it’s in the quiet meditation of our own thoughts do we hear the Lord. Luke 5:16 “And he withdrew himself into the wilderness, and prayed.” Never underestimate the power of prayer on your journey. Psalm 1:2 “but whose delight is in the law of the LORD, and who meditates on his law day and night.” Mark 1:35 “Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed.” The journey won’t walk itself. I believe we all need to spend a little more time away from the world and getting back to the basics. Go for a hike, listen to nature, listen to the song of the wild. There’s a time to be with God, and there’s a time to fellowship with Gods children. Both of those must be had to create balance and harmony. Be the Arrow of Christ. Fly straight and true. I consider myself an Archer for Christ. Instead of cupid bringing love of couples, I hope to shoot you in the heart with God’s arrows of truth. Draw back your bow and fire. “Breath, Aim, Fire”
