“Let your eyes look straight ahead, and your eyelids look right before you. Ponder the path of your feet, and let all your ways be established. Do not turn to the right or the left; remove your foot from evil.”
MOMENT BY MOMENT
By: Darrelyn L. Tutt
Choices moment by moment … of the flesh or of the Spirit. Both contribute to where we end up at the end of our day … at the end of our lives.
An obedient step, even if it is done in a halting, hesitant manner is an obedient step all the same and one which God honors with peace and enablement for the next.
Obedience to Christ and communion with Christ are a simultaneous occurrence both constructive and beautifying to the soul.
A sinful step, steeped in the flesh severs our communion with Christ and resonates with anxiety, unrest and heartache … dulling the senses and dimming the eyes; robbing it of peace with the Lord and robbing the soul of blessing unknown.
We are not satisfied fully until we surrender ourselves to something bigger than ourselves.
Lasting satisfaction comes only through the Eternal One.
O God … grant us steps that lead us home.
Stop and evaluate your next step:
If it brings you closer to Christ then take it … and if it’s a step removed turn away.
