Darkness yields up no notice.
Doubt plagues all hearts it touches.

... He has put eternity in their hearts, ... ~ Ecclesiastes 3:11

Eternity blazes before all as He wishes for us to simply remember Him.

... ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a
wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. ... ~ James 1:5-8


True understanding rises past the curse of confusion.

... he who doubts is condemned ... ~ Romans 14:22-23

Doubt leads to the pits of darkness
  Happy = Not condemn Himself  
He who doubts = Condemned
Not from faith = Sin

Peace of heart comes in satisfied relations with conscience.

... "Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin."
~ John 8:34


Oneís baseline with sin defines whether one reaches for godliness or not.

... Beware, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart
of unbelief in departing from the living God; ... ~ Hebrews 3:12-13


Oneís choice to deny God is convicting
  Evil heart of unbelief
     ┗► Departing from the living God   
  Hardened
     ┗► Through deceitfulness of sin

The world is scattered with mistrust filled with indecisions
leading to departing belief in God through the deceitfulness
of sin consumed in hate of heart.


I desire therefore that men pray everywhere, lifting up
holy hands, without wrath and doubting; ... ~ 1st Timothy 2:8


God hopes faithful everywhere find love in His desire for peace within.

Hell and Destruction are never full; So the eyes of man are never satisfied.
~ Proverbs 27:20


All things are full of labor; Man cannot express it. The eye is not
satisfied with seeing, Nor the ear filled with hearing. ~ Ecclesiastes 1:8


In all the expressions life displays, His gifts are unending.
The world of things can never yield up contentment of heart, that
must be seized in the spirit one walks in from moment to moment.


"Your life shall hang in doubt before you; ..." ~ Deuteronomy 28:66-67

There is no doubt that life is filled with challenges. Challenges
of strength and weakness, sorrows upon joys, life upon death.


"... no man is sure of life. He gives them security, and they
rely on it; Yet His eyes are on their ways." ~ Job 24:22-24


Are your eyes on the wheat or the weeds?

... do not understand; Keep on seeing, but do not perceive.' Make the heart of
this people dull, And their ears heavy, And shut their eyes; ... ~ Isaiah 6:9-10


To be healed one can only surrender to that which made us, in faith His
glory is to come releasing us from such bondage the flesh confines us in.


"... Lest they should understand with their hearts and turn,
So that I should heal them." ~ John 12:39-40


Stones of heart throw life into the wind
unable to lift the lightest of thoughts.


Then He said to them, "O foolish ones, and slow of heart to
believe in all that the prophets have spoken!" ~ Luke 24:25


The mask of deception is a hard nut to crack
freeing one to see truth above self.


"... Master, we are perishing!" Then He arose and rebuked the wind and the
raging of the water. And they ceased, and there was a calm. ~ Luke 8:24


Fear inhibits all to see through the fog of darkness
illuminating His calm resolve.


... "Why are you so fearful? How is it that you have no faith?" ...
~ Mark 4:39-41


God is greater than any storm willing that
all come to His reservoir of peace.


... "Why are you troubled? And why do doubts arise in your hearts?"
~ Luke 24:36-38


It is doubt that steals what He has freely given; eternal life.

... And He opened their understanding, that they might
comprehend the Scriptures. ... ~ Luke 24:45-47


Keen understanding is for those that truly believe clearly how
He draws us to His light in the goodness that He is.


... gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, whose minds the
god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, ... ~ 2nd Corinthians 4:3-4


God holds no partiality while we remain under the test of choices.
Darkness unfolds before us all, and how we respond to desires
of self declares how He will receive us.


And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should
believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth
but had pleasure in unrighteousness. ... ~ 2nd Thessalonians 2:11-12


Many delusions lure souls from acknowledging the truth of His words.

... Has not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? ...
~ 1st Corinthians 1:20-21


Patience is godliness under the pressures of not having. Faith is belief in
that which rises beyond the nothingness as death unfolds before us all.


... Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship
has righteousness with lawlessness? ... ~ 2nd Corinthians 6:14-15


The unchanging colors of truth do not fade as darkness holds no light.

For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power
and of love and of a sound mind. ~ 2nd Timothy 1:7


Courage in His truths defeat all doubts of man.

Indecision shallows the depths of His love
God has put eternity upon the hearts of man
Doubt prevents the blessings God offers
True faith rises above the passions of sin
Whoever commits sin is a slave of sin
Unbelief is an evil against our living God
Sufferings bound in faithless wrath drive despair
Lifeís purpose is the question God gives to all
Spiritual healing comes to those hearts who believe
No storm can steal the blessings God has promised
Regret & duty receives the gift of remission of sins
God will not stop delusions lusting liars believe
Godís lessons rise from a deepest nature of true life
Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers

Upon the waves God holds the anchor

Darkness possesses no laughter.
