our Christian walk

 As Christians, I think there are times when we take for granted everything that being a child of God’s entails. We sometimes are good at being on the receiving end, but fall short on the giving end. We know that we are washed in His precious blood. We know that because of the death of His Son on the Cross, we don’t have to die. We are guaranteed ETERNAL LIFE. We will live forever with Christ in the glorious portals of heaven. Praise You Lord for that!

But as His children, we must be diligent to walk in His ways. To keep His commandments. To do things that honor and glorify Him. We have a responsibility to adhere to the Word and His teachings.

When we are His children, we know that He is always there for us. He is right beside us at all times. He loves us. But we also must love Him with all of hearts, souls and minds.

“I have set the LORD always before me; because He is at my right hand, I shall not be moved” (Psalm 16:8)

He blesses us with His presence. He draws near to us. He hears us when we call. He answers us.Oh, friends, He answers us! All the time. It may not be the way we intended, but it is always the way that is best for us.

“I have called upon thee, for thou wilt hear me, O God; incline thine ear unto me, and hear my speech” (Psalm 17:6)

But in order for Him to hear us, He must know us. We must have a relationship with Him. An intimate and personal relationship with our Father.

God always has our best interest in mind. He wants good things for us. He delights in us and He desires for us to delight in Him and His goodness.

God doesn’t keep a record of our sin. He does NOT keep a record. Not one. He removes our transgressions from us as far as the east is from the west. (Psalm 103:12)

But we still have a responsibility to seek after righteousness in our lives. To seek sanctification of our hearts. And walk in His ways. He blesses us when we walk in His ways.

“Blessed is every one that feareth the LORD; that walketh in His ways.” (Psalm 128:1)

We serve a God who wants good things for His children, but we must be a people who desire to serve Him with all our hearts. We must be daily seeking His face and His heart and when we do that we will find Him in all His splendor and glory. And we will be more willing to give to Him and not be concerned with what we receive. Our lives will become all about Him. And we will be blessed beyond measure

Amen Beth! God wants us to seek Him and FIND Him. We should give Him the first fruit in every area.

Bless you!
