Still Walking That Walk?
“Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving.” Colossians 2:6-7 It sometimes occurs to me that devotions may be in a sense 'preaching to the choir' as those who are wandering around lost probably have no real desire to read 'religious' things. The Holy Spirit though does have a way of drawing those that are lost to **Him and does it in 'accidental' ways at times. Shoving Jesus down someone's throat only serves to actually drive them further away from Him and intimidate them. My question to those who have accepted Christ as their savior is "Are you still walking with Him daily?" It is easy to let the cares of the world and busyness of daily life put things of the Lord on the back burner. I recently returned from vacation and it is especially challenging when away from home to have a quiet time. Make it your goal daily to purpose in your heart that you will arrange your schedule each day so as to allow the Lord to have first place. if you have a spouse that is less than interested you can still do your own thing and may set an example in doing so. Don't do it to prove anything or show off but do it because you love Jesus. When you walk daily with the Lord you will find that the things that trouble you are not so dominant and you will be better able to praise God even in a storm of life. PRAYER: I love being able to walk with you daily Lord. I thank you for freedom to do so. Many people in many nations do not have that freedom. Help me not to waste this freedom and to use it. Forgive me for when I have put you last and not first. In Jesus' name. Amen.
