HH, Sir Godfrey Gregg D.Div
“ Come with me from Lebanon, my spouse, with me from Lebanon: look from the top of Amana, from the top of Shenir and Hermon, from the lions’ dens, from the mountains of the leopards.” (Song of Solomon 4:8).
Yes, our perplexities would become plain if we kept on a spiritual elevation. How often when the traveller quite loses his way he can soon find it again from some tree top or some hilltop where all the winding paths he has gone spread behind him, and the whole homeward road opens before him. So, from the heights of prayer and faith, we too can see the plain path and know that we are going home.
There is no other way in which we can gain victory over the world. We must get above it. We must see it from the side of our great reward. Then it looks like earthly objects after we have gazed upon the sun for a while.
We are blind to them. When the Italian fruit-seller finds that he is heir to a ducal palace you cannot tempt him any more with the paltry profits of his trade or the company of his old associates. He is above it all.
They who know the hope of their calling and the riches of the glory of their inheritance can well despise the world. It is the poor starving ones who go hungering for the husks of earth. We are born from above and have a longing to go home. Let us go forth to-day with our hearts on the home stretch.
I am here to encourage us today that though the road may be rough that there is a leader that still knows the way forward to the final journey. I am here to encourage you that no matter how dark the night may seem there is still a small light at the end of the tunnel. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Psalm 23:4 I am here to encourage you, “And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.” Luke 21:28 Oh, Hallelujah for the promise of the Father to us-ward as we look to the hills whence cometh our help.
I am reminded of the pilgrim named Christian who was on a journey who wandered off the path several times, and it was the great Evangelist that was watching assisted him back on the pathway to the promised land. You will read the full account by clicking on the link THE PILGRIM’S PROGRESS. This book will make for a good read and will be of encouragement to you from this day forward. I pray that God will be your constant guide and leader as we travel this perverse world to the promised land, a home not made with hands where God is the Architect.
