Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him. Fear the Lord, you his saints, for those who fear Him lack nothing. Psalm 34:8-9
The above picture is one of my favorite views as we drive to Vancouver. It reminds me a lot of the woods where we lived during my childhood, the woods of Arkansas. At first glimpse you can see the sky but I know, from experience, the deeper you go into the woods the less sky you see and you can easily get turned around and lose your way.
The exact opposite is true when we venture into God's Word. When we start reading God's Word and start applying to our lives the easier our path becomes. As we journey through this life and let God be our guide we will find that we make fewer mistakes. When we do make a mistake take that mistake to God asking for His direction. When we place it in His hands and surrender to His will we will learn from that mistake and not repeat it.
So let us take our refuge in God, let Him be our guide and we will receive blessings overflowing and lack for nothing we need.
How Sweet And Awesome Is This Place
by Isaac Watts, 1707
How sweet and awesome is this place
With Christ within the doors,
While everlasting love displays
The choicest of her stores!
Twas the same love that spread the feast
That sweetly drew us in;
Else we had still refused to taste,
And perished in our sin.
