The Misty Flats – A Choice

28 12 2020

Fear not

As we wait between the holidays and the new year we face a choice, as always. Do not succumb to the doldrums of “the misty flats.” We must choose the heights of God’s purpose. The temptation is to surrender to mild or even serious depression as we view our world. But God is in control! Look to the Rock from which you were hewn. We are not meaningless blobs slogging through a meager existence, but beings created in the image of Yehovah God. Rise up! Follow the higher path upward to find your place in God’s Plan.

I was inspired by this early 20th century poem by John Oxenham. Consider the message and choose wisely.

To every man there openeth
A Way, and Ways, and a Way.
And the High Soul climbs the High way,
And the Low Soul gropes the Low,
And in between, on the misty flats,
The rest drift to and fro.
But to every man there openeth
A High Way, and a Low.
And every man decideth
The Way his soul shall go.
If you feel like you are in the misty flats during the holidays, it is time to stir up the Holy Spirit in your heart and trust Him completely. Here is an anchor scripture from Isaiah 51, to encourage you. I pray that the Lord Jesus will strengthen you with might in the inner man. Read the end of the book, we win!
A Call to Trust Yehovah
“Listen to me, all who hope for deliverance—
all who seek Yehovah!
Consider the rock from which you were cut,
the quarry from which you were mined.
Yes, think about Abraham, your ancestor,
and Sarah, who gave birth to your nation.
Abraham was only one man when I called him.
But when I blessed him, he became a great nation.”
Yehovah will comfort Israel again
and have pity on her ruins.
Her desert will blossom like Eden,
her barren wilderness like the garden of Yehovah.
Joy and gladness will be found there.
Songs of thanksgiving will fill the air. Isaiah 51:1-3 NLT
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for winter rains in Israel.

(Why  do I use God’s literal covenant Name: Yehovah? Here is a link to the explanation  in my book: The Hebrew God Who Has No Name.) and here is a link to a great visual from my friend Keith Johnson.
