Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today- December 13, 2012
“To shine on those living in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the path of peace.” Luke 1:79
Jesus the Prince of Peace, was born on earth to provide for His people a path of peace. The path is wrought with rocks, steep hills, pelting rain, shades of night and distinct crossroads. However, regardless of the resistance encountered on the Lord’s path, there is an inner peace to the sometimes doubtful and weary traveler. Yes, the foundation of tranquility is trust in Christ. His light on life’s path brings steps of peace to faithful feet.
Are you stumbling through life in need of a Savior or are your feet of faith planted on the solid ground of salvation? Your docile feet can find confidence with dependency on the Lord. Your soiled feet can be cleansed and refreshed by His forgiveness. Your tired feet can enjoy a comforting massage from your Master Jesus. Your fast feet may need to slow down and your slow feet may need to speed up. Ask God to guide your next wise step.
“Her ways [wisdom’s] are pleasant ways, and all her paths are peace.” Proverbs 3:17
Beams of light from your belief in God will show you the way. The dark world is scary and sometimes confusing, but the Light of the world illumines peace and clarity on your prayerful path. Like a flashlight your faith burns bright. There is a shadow of death that eventually eclipses us all—but those in Christ wake up to the brightness of His presence!
Therefore, choose the narrow, well-lit path of peace and avoid the wide, darkened path of turmoil. The route of the majority tends to major on the minors, but God’s righteous remnant walk in His light of love with illuminating intimacy. Stay the course of your convictions and your Savior Jesus will show you the way. He came to earth under a peaceful canopy of heaven’s candles and He will return in a blaze of blinding glory!
“Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.” Luke 2:14
Prayer: Heavenly Father, I trust you to keep me on your path of peace in Christ.
