The precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart;

The commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes.

Psalm 19: 8

 

There is a right way to live that is a part of the our very created make up; yet, it is often buried so deeply beneath the layers of self determined personal code and law that it gets hidden and locked away so deeply that the ensuing thoughts and the behaviors that are their result don’t look much like those of Christ. There is a sadness, a heaviness that runs through our culture that is the result of the prevalence of this sort of human devised interaction. Our vision is clouded, and our hearts are made heavy.

 

Yet, there are answers, and there is relief from this oppression; for God has implanted a desire for truth in our hearts, and He provides its source to all who seek it. God’s hand made our world, and His law binds it together; thus, when we act in ways that are contrary to the will of the Lord, the tension and the disconnectedness that follows is nothing more than the natural outcome of acting in a manner that is contrary to the forces of true nature.

 

Peace, joy, and restoration are readily available through God’s plan for living, and His plan is clearly defined in His word and by His Spirit. When we decide to listen, He provides the insight that is needed for what we are facing today; as we allow His truth into our hearts, our thinking is changed to reflect God’s loving ways.
