Thoughts and Light

March 23, 2015

Good Morning everyone!

Today’s post is straight from my journal from this mornings reading.

blessed-are

Psalm 94:11-12

11 The Lord knows the thoughts of man,
That they are futile.

12 Blessed is the man whom You instruct, O Lord,
And teach out of Your law…

Amazingly powerful verse. The connection is staggering.

1. God is sovereign and knows all things down to the thoughts of the hearts of man.

2. Our thoughts our pointless, and incapable of producing any useful results. This is amazing after reading through the book of Ecclesiastes. Seeing how Solomon describes the vanity and meaninglessness of our lives on this earth.

3. But now in v.12 the man who receives instruction from the Lord is blessed. The instruction of God also comes from His Word.

Ephesians 5:8-10

For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth), 10 finding out what is acceptable to the Lord.

Walk as children of light. What does that look like? In everything we do it must be rooted, clothed and directed in all goodness, righteousness and truth.

Is what I am doing clothed in goodness?

Is there any bit of unrighteousness in my thoughts or actions?

Am I being completely truthful in all my ways?

When these questions are all yes, we walk in the light as children of the light.

Grace and Peace
