Daily Surrender psa 119:96
Psa 119:96 KJV I have seen an end of all perfection: but thy commandment is exceeding broad.
These are the words of a man who has lived a long and rich life. Only the young, the immature, the foolish and the blind of spirit and heart can believe in human perfection of itself. Answer me the question if you can. Where in this can you find the perfect love, the perfect friendship, the perfect peace, the perfect unity, the perfect freedom, the perfect faith, the perfect beauty, the perfect philosophy, the perfect life, the perfect death and the perfect government? Bring each of these to the impartial scrutiny of the eyes of Truth; let each one be interrogated by virtue and integrity; be tested them by the corrupting fires of selfishness and pride; and believe me my friend, like the morning mist of a fall's morning in the countryside, they vanish and are no more. The smoke screen of their pretentious beauty dries up and leaves, exposing the naked truth of earth's corruptive state.
And dare you not call me cynical; crude and God-rejecting Voltaire would cringe at the statement. But I believe that the only perfection comes from the God of Lights, the Perfect Father*, Truth in itself, and all these incarnated in the very perfect Son of God, who even though tempted in all things as we are, is "without sin" (Heb 4:15).
Oh weak, imperfect and searching man wherever and whoever you are, will you yield to the Perfect light of the Perfect truth, enjoy the Perfect Beauty of the Perfect Creator; live a Perfect Life in the Perfect Place; die a Perfect Death, for a Perfect resurrection? Have Perfect Trust in the Perfect Word of the Perfect God
Jam 4:14 Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.
*Father: From the latin: pater, from the word "pattern", as in "the model to follow"
