Christian Author Writer Psalm 139: 
Seacrh me and know me, Oh God, and see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.

As I was studying on this scripture I had posted one day, a cherished friend came to my blog and commented, saying "Remember though that we don't always know what the "Way Everlasting" is." I've never forgotten that and I have tried to go deeper into a true understanding of our mis-understandings, even though we may have good intentions.

My question was, how can I keep myself faithful to all I am called to become?

Psalms 116:
12 What shall I render unto the Lord for all his benefits toward me? 13 I will take the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of the Lord. 14 I will pay my vows unto the Lord now in the presence of all his people.

I learned that there is  a cup of sufferings to drink. That while we know our Father God is merciful and so patient with us as we are learners, we also know that it is He who decides and pours out the cup of suffering and we are responsible for learning how to delight in all He purposes for us. We must learn trust, to always believe that His grace to deal with all things we walk through is all sufficient. We want to learn how to flow in His perfect will as we seek to agree with Him in all He has revealed to us. We must live in the determination to give Him the glory He is due. We must know who we are now in Him and seek to learn who we are destined to become in Him. And that His heavenly ways of suffering are created to be joyous and ever fruitful.

James 1:
2 My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into various  temptations; 3 Knowing this, that the trying of your faith works patience. 4 But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.

We see from a deep study of these things that suffering with the Lord is the way of every true apostle.

Romans 8:17 
And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

But we learn that there are various times and seasons in the Lord and that each time and season holds a new condition to be met. That it is a moment by moment, day by day process, and that only true and total submission to know Him and to be established in a strong prayer life will cause us to advance in our quest for the eternal reward, the living hope we are all called to.

Teach us how to pray, Lord! Teach us Oh Lord to delight in your free gift and seek to find and maintain that true and willing heart to walk in your ways.

These are just a few wisdom keys to His way everlasting. A continual forward progress with a sincere, whole hearted and continual learning to know and experience Him daily. To know Him as our all powerful, all mighty, all seeing, all  knowing heavenly Father who is our ever present help in any trouble. 

As we live our lives for the glory that His Son Jesus died to make possible for many He will be faithful to guard all He has planted in us and guide us into all truth.

I pray you will experience those fruitful times and seasons through while daily basking in the vast ocean of His glorious transformational love and His mercies.

Psalms 8:
O Lord our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! who hast set thy glory above the heavens. 2 Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings you have ordained strength because of thine enemies, that you might still the enemy and the avenger.

3 When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; 4 What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visits him? 5 For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour. 6 Thou made him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet: 7 All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field; 8 The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever passes through the paths of the seas. 9 O Lord our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!
