Shew me thy ways, O Lord; teach me thy paths. LEAD ME IN THY TRUTH, AND TEACH ME: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day. Remember, O Lord, thy tender mercies and thy lovingkindnesses; for they have been ever of old. Remember not the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions: according to thy mercy remember thou me for thy goodness' sake, O Lord. Good and upright is the Lord : therefore will he teach sinners in the way. The meek will he guide in judgment: and the meek will he teach his way. All the paths of the Lord are mercy AND TRUTH unto such as keep his covenant and his testimonies. For thy name's sake, O Lord, pardon mine iniquity; for it is great. What man is he that feareth the Lord ? HIM SHALL HE TEACH in the way that he shall choose. Psalm 25:4-12. The ONLY way a person can Grow in the Lord, is to partake of the Lord and of ALL that is His. Don't ask for Wisdom, Knowledge, Understanding and Truth, UNLESS YOU REALLY WANT THESE THINGS. And to want these things, is to want God in ALL His Fullness. The first BRUTAL Truth the Lord will give you is, "YOU'RE A SINNER ON YOUR WAY TO HELL, REPENT, OR DIE IN YOUR SINS". But the second gentle Truth is, "Have Faith in My Son, He has already Paid In Full all the charges and penalties brought against you. You're a Free man, Trust Christ, and He will shew you the Way you shall go". The Truth is sweet to the Spirit. The Truth will also crush, kill, and destroy your flesh, self, and old man nature. "Oh boy, let's run to the Dr. and ask Him to perform open heart surgery WITHOUT ANESTHESIA, that'll be fun"!!! The Truth, like a two edged sword, cuts both ways, going in AND coming out. But the Healing Balm of the Lord makes ALL surgery worth while. Like tearing off the scab covering an infection, The Truth will Heal, Cleanse, and Purify everything about you, so that you may Walk Whole in Christ as you Grow in CHRISTLIKENESS. Only those seeking TRUTH in its Purist, Uncut, Raw form will, Be Blessed.
