He is able to keep you, keep your eyes on Him.

OT Flash Points
Silly and destructive:
The natural ways and end of people with only themselves as their standard,
walking according to their own fancies
NT Flash Points
Doing our own thing is neurosis, lawlessness
62% of all Americans have diagnosable mental illness
50% of all hospital beds are filled with mental cases
If we have no standard that points to God, we are, by definition, mentally ill
The passion of Patience – source: the vision of God …”endured as seeing the invisible One”
If we have only our experience, we have nothing
Beware of resting on it
Get the vision
It is more than experience – it is revelation
