This morning, on this first day of January 01, 2013, I walked out on the deck of my home and found myself totally enveloped by a dense cloud. I felt as if I were really up in the clouds not being able to see anything around or below me. It was a most odd sensation. I experienced the sensation of being high above the ground and floating. I thought this is a very good time to pray, and so I did. Some of what I prayed was for wisdom to understand the scriptures better and that the Holy Spirit of God would continue to be my tutor. I wondered about what God has planned for me now in this world and how I could better understand and be obedient to His plan and will for me. As I looked at this heavy cloud that was hiding everything around me I thought that in this same way, so too does Satan attempt to keep hidden from me the real truths of this world. If I had not seen many times before what was now hidden from me I might have forgotten what was still out there. I thought of this as a similar method used by the devil to cloud our mind with the concerns, desires and the things of this world rather than the truth found in scripture. It is the devil who is slowly attempting to bring about the erasing of the truth from our mind and thoughts. The devil is a technology geek and knows how to keep you busy with texts and Facebook and all the other social networks. He is crowding out everything spiritually good in your mind and replacing it with false illusions of yourself and of this world. Our mind and spirit are developing spiritual cataracts. When we can no longer see the truth we must be able to remember it. This is the value of constant reading and remembering the scriptures. They are truth and life. The time is surely coming when trials and tribulations of this world will not allow us the time we need to read the scriptures. It will be a time when we will have to recall scripture’s wisdom and truth. It will be too late to go looking for scriptural truth, so pray that you will have had the foresight to have planted it deeply into you heart and mind. It will surely be your treasure map to lead you out of the trials and tribulation to a heaven of safety. Many people prepare for hurricanes and other natural disasters that last for a short period of time, but too few are preparing for a calamity of supernatural proportions that could bring about their demise in this world and in the world to come. Prayer and reading of the scriptures is the perfect treatment for mental and spiritual cataracts. Many times recently the thought has come to me that…”we don’t know what we don’t know’. There is much we don’t know and therefore we must be diligent to pursue truth and knowledge of the scriptures. In the scriptures you will find life and truth…..at the very least all the truth you will need to get you from this world to the better one coming.
