Level Ground

Psalm 143:10

“Teach me to do your will, for you are my God; may your good Spirit lead me on level ground.”

I find it so interesting that David asks for God to lead him on level ground. Level ground is well-balanced and peaceful. Isn’t that the heart of God’s will for our lives? Balanced and peaceful even amidst difficulties. It’s so easy to over react to suffering and unfairness isn’t it? It’s so easy to be overcome with the desire to retaliate against those who have harmed us with words, gossip or cheap undermining. David knew he was being pursued yet he put His trust in God’s unfailing love.

It was here that he would know God’s peace, serenity, grace, protection and mercy. Do we, like David, know God’s will for us in times of distress? We need to ask God to balance our lives and bless us with these divine quality attributes found in Him, so that when danger lurks and enemies pursue, we remain balanced in God’s unfailing love and protection.There is no need to fight. No need to run anywhere but under the shelter of His wing. Now that is level ground! When we hide there, nothing else matters!

Hope for The Road

Always Hope
Always Hope

So it’s not always easy is it? Things come out of no where when we least expect it. Things that sideswipe and knock us off track momentarily or maybe longer ~ just because they do and we feel weak and helpless ~ and smack-dab in the middle of it all. Where to turn and what to do when rough patches in the road trip us up so very quickly and make us lose our focus on what’s true and right and good? Our get up and go gets up and leaves and leaves us shaking, unmotivated and weary worn. Worry becomes our second name as it volunteers to take its dangerous position in the playing field. Panic and fear just follow along and then what? We have a bad game going on and we find ourselves in need of a supernatural power source that can empower us and pick us up from the depths of where we are and pull to the heavenly heights of where He is! We are needy people needing a double dose of God’s grace and favour and ah yes, His compassion and mercy~ all victorious in winning the battle. His mercies are new every morning and even on the rough days, Jesus gives mercy and hope for the road! Put a dash of both in your “coffee to go” this morning! His grace is amazing, His love unfailing and His guidance is true and right and good. He will never leave you ‘nor forsake you. Trust Him for that! Trust Him now, and where worry plays out give it over into His capable hands. Where panic surfaces in the chaotic and frightening, know God’s protective hands are all over it to make it better and to bring you closer to His heart! Beautiful and weary soul, He’s got this! ~ let Him work! ~k

Hope In The Journey

John 16:33
“I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”

Psalm 50:15
“Call upon me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify me.”

Sweet Obedience


Psalm 119:60

“I will hasten and not delay to obey your commands.”

The psalmist seeks God’s favor and unfailing love. In Verse 59 he ponders his life and where it’s going. What direction it’s taking. He knows in his heart that God’s favor and blessing come by following His laws, precepts, statutes and commands. Though evil surrounds him, taunting him to fall into sin, he remembers God’s faithfulness and wishes to remain a loyal servant of the Lord. When it comes to keeping God’s laws and following His instructions, to drag our feet is to allow the enemy a foot in the door. When temptation knocks, we must run, not walk to the nearest exit. Prayer is the quickest, safest, most powerful, most sure and most reliable way out. It’s where we meet the One who died to free us from the ruin and folly that sinful pleasures drag us into. Run/turn to God in prayer. Since He’s everywhere we can pray anywhere with confidence that He hears and know that He desires to deliver us from the evil that stalks.

Let’s step our lives up a notch or two and hasten in obedience to keep the righteous laws of God. To follow His commands and allow His precepts for living to permeate and saturate our hearts, souls and minds. To do so brings abundant life and sweet and beautiful peace, free from chaos and confusion.<
