Our Daily Walk

Most of us are so full of fervor and ambition when we first turn to the Lord for salvation.  We want to go out and conquer the world for Him.

But as time goes on, we may lose that drive to do all for Him.  We may become so involved with the other aspects of our life that we soon find ourselves buried in other pursuits.

We don’t realize what we are doing until one day we look up and see how far we have traveled away from Him.  It is then that we realize that all those other things in our lives have moved in and taken our time and attention away from Him.

It is then that we need to repent of letting other things come first.  It is then that we need to remember our first love and to move back to where we were at the beginning of our Christian life.

But, how do we keep from veering off in the wrong direction in the first place?

We do this by being sure to walk by His side daily.

By being attentive to His voice.  By being fully attuned to, and completely surrendered to the Holy Spirit.  And we do this by reading His Word, the Bible, by meditating on what we read there and by praying daily.

If any of those is missing in our life, it will be almost inevitable that one day we will find ourselves further away from Him with a pile of ‘things’ between us and Him.

God gave us the Bible for a purpose – so that we would know Him and so that we would understand what He requires of us.

God gave us His Son for a purpose – so that we could have forgiveness for our sins and so that we would have an open line of communication to Him through prayer.

God gave us the Holy Spirit for a purpose – so that He could guide us through this life and enable us to do what God is asking of us.

As we go through this year, let us resolve to be mindful of where He stands in our lives.  Let us be mindful of keeping our daily walk close to Him.

He gave His Son’s life for us.  The least we can do is give ours for Him.

    Life is short. Jesus can make it worthwhile and keep it worthwhile for us if we let Him.

    Druscilla, I am reminded to seek His word but to share it to others by teaching them what I now acquire inside me. It is critical that we become teachers. I believe teaching is the foundation and preaching reminds us of what we now know. Thank you for this post it is confirmation and a reminder of our duties as Children to Christ our Savior.
    Blessings to you, may God open doors that needs to be open in your temple to do His will. Amen.

    Love your sister in Christ.

    It’s been a beautiful day in central Texas. Sometimes God gets me recharged with a brilliant sunrise and a walk around the neighborhood in the warm sunshine. Reading post like this one is also a way to get recharged. Thanks for sharing.

    We will only truly HAVE our lives as we give them to HIM. It is not any accident that we are told of God “walking and talking with them in the cool of the evening” before the Fall. By the Blood of the Lamb, we can walk and talk all through all our days with Him!
