Joshua 23:8 “But you are to cling to the LORD your GOD, as you have done to this day!”
Clinging to LIFE!
The aroma of wall paper flowers
is unlike the rose or the Lilly.
Truthfully told, no fresh fragrance it holds…since all of its beauty was painted.
Such one dimensional pictures indeed even if with raised petals for texture.
Consequently its printed display is
a poor substitute for GOD’s brushstrokes.
Yet how often man’s goal — Replication, as if it resembles HIS actions,
as if a shadow could hang upon Calvary! AS IF! Still continue we onward!
Just as phantoms come from paper tigers and as substituted pictures mirror life;
thus the only “Real thing” we must cling to is HE WHOSE love never lets go…JESUS CHRIST!
As HIServant focused on mirage removal,
Devotional: Psalm 139:14 “I praise YOU, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are YOUR works; my soul knows it very well!”
Deuteronomy 13:4 “You shall follow the LORD your GOD and fear HIM; and you shall keep HIS commandments, listen to HIS voice, serve HIM, and cling to HIM.” Always!
As our branches continue to attach themselves to The ROOT, so we find peace and calm in HIS arms. Amen?
Therefore! Accept no substitute from anyone for any reason.
Relinquish your grasp on the things of this life so as to tighten your grip upon JESUS!
Amen and amen!
