There is something nostalgic about lighthouses. They are a beacon of warning that land and rocks are ahead. If this light is mistaken for safe harbor it could result in danger. There is temptation to reason ourselves into following the light. “…when we are in darkness, the temptation is to find our own way without trusting in the LORD, and relying on Him. Instead of allowing Him to help us, we try to help ourselves. We seek the light of the natural way and the advice of our friends. We reason out our own conclusions and thereby may be tempted to accept a path of deliverance that would not be of God at all.” This is such a powerful statement. Some situations are such a mess emotionally, financially, logically that the most common wisdom says to leave and get out. It’s best to take a step back and seek the true light in desperation – lay it down before Him first, seeking His way and His light of hope.Today is the last day of the blog giveaway!
