Walking on Slick Paths

Psalm 119:165Great peace have those who love your law; nothing can make them stumble.” march

What are your resources for a winning spiritual life? 15 minutes daily in the Word? Prayer? Willingness to serve? Gathering with like-minded believers?

God’s word and law is our safety line and resource as we walk those slick paths we face.

Intentional and Decisive

Philippians 3:13-14 I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” 

The intentional Christian is a person determined to know God better and move away from mediocrity. This person is decisive, with a determined priority of living by God’s priorities and not deterred by their past. They have allowed God’s grace deal with their past and not allow that past to control their future.

Being intentional and decisive is being “with God’. John Ortberg says, “It’s allowing God to make every moment of our lives glorious in His presence.

What kind of daily intentional steps are you taking today?

Avoiding Burnout In Your Walk With Christ

Isaiah 40:30-31 “Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted; but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.”
Often today, I hear about people who are burning out, wiping out, and shipwrecking their faith because they’re just tired. They’ve worked and worked their entire lives for the ministry until one day, they just decide it’s too much, so they quit. And some even become so jaded and burnt out that they completely abandon their faith.
I don’t want that kind of burnout to happen to me and I certainly don’t want it to happen to you. And the best way that we can be sure it won’t happen is by walking in the presence of Jesus and giving time for him each day. We do this by spending time in his Word, seeking his will in prayer, and fellowshipping with one another.
The best part of the Christian experience is walking day by day, one step at a time, with your God. When you do that, being faithful to your family, to your friends, and to your church will be a natural outflow of your walk with God.
AVOID BURNOUT IN THE CHRISTIAN LIFE BY WALKING IN THE PRESENCE OF JESUS AND SPENDING TIME WITH HIM EACH DAY.
