THE NARROW PATH TO RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD - DAY 78
by Rev. Robert John Cericola, Carroll, OH - EUA
Psalm 146:1–6 (AMP) PRAISE THE Lord! (Hallelujah!) Praise the Lord, O my soul! While I live will I praise the Lord; I will sing praises to my God while I have any being. Put not your trust in princes, in a son of man, in whom there is no help. When his breath leaves him, he returns to his earth; in that very day his [previous] thoughts, plans, and purposes perish. [I Cor. 2:6.] Happy (blessed, fortunate, enviable) is he who has the God of [special revelation to] Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the Lord his God, [Gen. 32:30.] Who made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, Who keeps truth and is faithful forever
The princes, in our day the politicians, insult and vilify their opponents, while they promote bizarre unfulfillable promises that lead down the wide road to destruction. Using enticing words, they promote exciting visions to mindless people of a perfect society without a bothersome moral code from God, whom they say does not exist. Unlike the Lord Jesus, they are liars, unstable, unreliable, unfaithful in all their ways.
Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord, is the heart cry of this psalmist who has found, amid the princes of man, the Lord to be faithful and trust worthy. And we like the psalmist, will find Jesus Christ to be faithful, and trust worthy as we continue along this narrow path of obedience set before us.
Strong deception is pouring out on every nation and only those that keep their focused-on Jesus will be ready to meet Him when He comes. His coming is soon, which begs the questions; Do you know Him? Are you ready?
