You are lost within a deep, thick forest. You try desperately to find your way out. Everywhere you turn, your shoulder brushes against a sharp bush of jagged thistle. With all your might you seek to find the light to that open field; the blood seeping forth from your forearm, reminds you that you are stuck, with no shoulder room to avoid the blow of your surroundings.
What do you do? Run a little faster? Certainly not, for this would cut you a little deeper. Do you sit, and stay? This would prevent you from getting cut, for a moment, but you would be that much further from freedom!
Then you remember that God’s Word is quick and powerful, sharper than any two-edged sword. You begin to recall scripture, to meditate on its truths. And then, and only then, can God cut through that shrubbery to make way towards that open field of beauty. You do not need to search for the way out, for He has cut you a path, if you just follow His lead.
For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Hebrews 4:12
“A mouse was caught in a trap, the other day, by its tail, and the poor creature went on eating the cheese. Many men are doing the same; they know that they are guilty and they dread their punishment, but they go on nibbling at their beloved sins.” ~ CHARLES H. SPURGEON
“Will you let God cut you a path towards freedom today?”
