Counsel of the Lord



Hear counsel, and receive instruction, that thou mayest be wise in thy latter end. There are many devices in a man's heart; nevertheless the counsel of the Lord, that shall stand.  Proverbs 19:20-21

The Lighthouse


There's a lighthouse on the hillside that overlooks life's sea. When I'm tossed it sends out a light that I might see.

And the light that shines in darkness now will safely lead me home, If it wasn't for the lighthouse, my ship would sail no more.

And I thank God for The Lighthouse, I owe my life to Him. Jesus is The Lighthouse and from the rocks of sin, He has shown the light around me, so that I might clearly see.

If it wasn't for The Lighthouse, Where would this ship be?

Everyone that lives around us, says tear that old lighthouse down, The big ships don't sail this way anymore, ain't no use in it standing round.

But then my mind goes back to that stormy night, when just in time I saw the light With the light from that old lighthouse, that stands there on the hill.

- The Hinsons



The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?  Psalm 27:1

Living Word



The purpose of knowing the written Word of God is to lead us to 'knowing' the Living Word of God. Which is Jesus, The RISEN SAVIOR OF THE WORLD.

Isaiah 43:4



God's favour and good-will to his people speak abundant comfort to all believers. The new creature, wherever it is, is of God's forming. All who are redeemed with the blood of his Son, he has set apart for himself. Those that have God for them need not fear who or what can be against them. What are Egypt and Ethiopia, all their lives and treasures, compared with the blood of Christ? True believers are precious in God's sight, his delight is in them, above any people. Though they went as through fire and water, yet, while they had God with them, they need fear no evil; they should be born up, and brought out. The faithful are encouraged. They were to be assembled from every quarter. And with this pleasing object in view, the prophet again dissuades from anxious fears.

- Matthew Henry Concise Commentary

Between God and Us




Jesus Christ is our Mediator, the connection, the bridge, between God and us. Spiritual enablement flows from God through Him to us. God's power and God's faithfulness are the issues that are of supreme importance to us in these critical times. Are we constantly cognizant of the fact that our salvation lies in His hands? He has the power to save.

Spiritually Discerned



But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.  1 Corinthians 2:14

A Nail



The nail is used for many things, A useful securing tool; A hammer is taken by the hand And drives it, that's the rule.


A nail is needed when you build, It's a necessary thing. It was also used over two thousand years ago, To hang upon a tree, the King.


He took the pain and suffering, For all mankind, you see. Yet He took the torture just for you, And He took it just for me.


You cannot keep a good man down, Through the years many have said. He went down a man, and rose a King, To deliver the spiritually dead.


He is on the throne, At God's right hand. The First, the Last, The Great I Am.


No nail, no hammer can touch Him now.  The mighty King on high. What He built is forevermore, Salvation for you and I.


So when you see a simple nail with it's sharpened end, And need to build or repair, Lift up your eyes, your heart and mind, And thank Him with a prayer.
