PROVERBS TO LIVE BY
PROVERBS 4:18-19
 
There is much wisdom in the Book of Proverbs by Solomon. It is wisdom for practical day to day living that helps to bring a better path to the future as well as the present days.
 
Proverbs 4:18-19 (KJV) says “…the path of the just (righteous) is as the shining light that shines more and more unto the perfect day. The way of the wicked (sinner) is as darkness; they know not at what they stumble.”
 
The “shining light” here means “brilliant illumination.” The life of Christ within us is a light that shines through us to those of the world. Where there is light, darkness goes away. When the light of Christ illumines one’s soul, the darkness in their life is taken away and they walk in His light until they come into that perfect day. Their “perfect day” is when they arrive in heaven after this earthly life. All is perfect in heaven.
 
The light of Christ within us is like a beacon of light leading them toward the Truth (Christ) and away from the rocks of eternal destruction, much like a lighthouse gives guidance to the sailor on the waters.
 
The wicked (any sinner) is in darkness, bound in the world of sin. This is a spiritual darkness where they cannot perceive truth. Jesus is The Truth. They have no true understanding because Satan has deceived them and darkened their ability to perceive or understand real truth. They believe that the world they see around them is truth, but it is only deception. Their spiritual eyes are blinded, and they do not even realize it. 
 
Only Holy spirit can open their eyes and heart to see Truth and gain Understanding.
 
If you have unsaved loved ones or friends, pray that Holy Spirit will open their spiritual eyes to see Truth and be drawn to Father God through Jesus.

TRANSFORMATION
 
I was watching a large butterfly in our yard this week. It was almost as big as my hand. The color was beautiful as it flew freely from one plant to another. Yet, it did not start out as a butterfly. It was a worm or a caterpillar. I don’t find caterpillars as beautiful as butterflies, in fact they don’t look anything like a butterfly. Who but God would have been so creative?
 
Yet, in order to become a butterfly, the caterpillar has to go through drastic change. First of all, it finds a leaf that is safe to start the process. It starts to spin a cocoon around itself. It instinctively does this. It is part of its life cycle. It can stay in the cocoon from 5-21 days where it goes through metamorphosis, which brings it into something that it wasn’t before. It must go through the entire stage to emerge whole and be ready to fly.
 
In a sense God does this with us. In Psalm 22:6 there is a prophetic word about Messiah, Jesus Christ. It says, “But I am a worm, and no man; a reproach of men, and despised of the people.” Sin is looked upon as being a worm. Jesus took the sin of mankind into his body, and then died on the cross. He was buried, which was like the worm being in a cocoon, and then He rose again and came forth from the grave in newness of life.  His resurrection brought forth the hope of eternal life that each of us needs. In our sinful states we are just mere worms, but when we receive forgiveness of sin through the shed blood of Jesus Christ, we are transformed from something ugly into something beautiful. God works on his continuously to transform us from the inside out. 
 
Even though we carry the body that we started with, one day we will shed it for a glorified body and be like that butterfly – free from the body of sin and death. What a glorious day that will be. In the meantime, we should never despise what God is doing in our lives. We are all in the transformation stage!
 
The next time you see a butterfly, let it remind you that you are being worked on by Almighty God. He has a plan for you, and it is good! Be blessed.
