The Dove-man.

After such a long time in which I have been unable to access the link for a "New Post", I have finally managed to get here - albeit by a roundabout route.  Hopefully, when this post is published, I will be able to continue as before.  If I am not so able, at least I now know the alternative route!

Knowing the route is, of course, of great importance in the journey that we call 'life'! The story is told of a certain guide who lived in the deserts of Arabia - before the dynastic rule of the Saudi family!  This guide was well-known for never losing his way.  His secret was simple.  He carried with him a homing pigeon with a fine cord attached to one of its legs.  When in doubt as to which path he should take, he threw the bird into the air.  The pigeon quickly strained at the cord, in order to fly in the direction of home, and thus led the guide accurately to that destination.  Because of this unique practice, he was known as "the dove-man".

In the spiritual realm, God the Holy Spirit - the heavenly Dove - is willing, and able, to direct those who are have submitted themselves to the Lordship of Jesus the Christ.  You see, before a person is made spiritually alive, that person walks (i.e. lives) "... following the course of this world, ...", lured on by "... the [evil] spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience." (Eph. 2:2).  However, after having experienced the regenerating power of salvation, new and different longings are received. The true disciple of Jesus is then made able to do the things that God leads him to do.  God the Holy Spirit continually guides - often through the written Word - regarding the path that should be pursued if the believer wishes to reach the heights of victory, and full blessing.  The danger comes when we cater for the flesh, and stop seeking the will of Father God for our lives!

All of us, who claim to be disciples of Jesus, ought to be "dove-men and -women" - sensitive, and fully responsive to our heavenly Guide of Whom the Lord Jesus said: "When the Spirit of truth comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak, and He will declare to you the things that are to come." (John 16:13).
