Taking The Next Step

”For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.” – Romans 8:14. It’s important that we seek God every day of our lives, and follow the instructions that He gives us. Today’s blog entry is titled “Taking The Next Step”…

“This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.” – Galatians 5:16

The choices/decisions that we make today can have a big impact on our future, so it’s very important that we do things God’s way instead of our own way. It can be easy to get caught up in emotions or how we feel about a situation, but we should never allow how we feel to cause us to disobey God. When we spend time in prayer/reading the Bible, we can get an understanding of how to handle the various situations we encounter in our day to day lives. Whether it’s deciding on what city we are going to move to, or how to deal with a challenge that we’re facing in our lives, the Holy Spirit can show us what we need to do.

It’s important to remember that God is here for us. He has a perspective on things that we don’t have, so we should definitely seek Him for wisdom regarding our decisions. We should be fully submitted to Jesus Christ in every area of our lives. Sometimes we may have the desire to try to take certain things into our own hands, instead of following Jesus’ plan; but doing things that way can lead to a lot of issues that we otherwise could have avoided. We should obey Jesus, be patient, and learn the lessons that we need to learn as we progress.  

“The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way.” - Psalm 37:23

So as we continue to grow in our walk with Jesus Christ, let us remember to be good stewards over everything that He blesses us with, and seek Him for wisdom when we are making decisions.

 “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.” – Ephesians 2:10
