The Illusion of Life

This is from Tuesday, February 23rd

Psalm 2: 1-4

Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?

The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying,

Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.

He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the LORD shall have them in derision.

The Illusion of This Life

I watched a magic show yesterday. It got me thinking about the things that challengs us in this life. In the light of truth, most of what consumes us daily is just a trick...a vain attempt to get the best on God and His annointed.

Paul reminded us that there is nothing that can separate us from the love of God. Not His adoration. Not His appreciation. His love. That's a love where all the promises are true, and God remains consistent in all things.

Yet, when faced with the distractions and illusions conjured up by the enemy, we grow faint and cry out in despiration. It's like we're caught in a magic trick and we think we can't get out. But make no mistake dear one, it is a trick.

Jesus died to make you one with Him and the Father and to make the way for the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. Anything that isn't of the Father is counterfeit...a trick. You might not know how it works, but it's still a trick designed to deceive you and to keep your eyes off the the Father and His Son.

God laughs at this attempt and calls it vain. You are His and nothing and no one can change that. And that's not a trick.

Psalm 2:10-12

Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.

Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling.

Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.
