Walking in the ways of the Lord means to walk in His light. We allow Him to scatter the darkness that we may be led by the Spirit.
Be vigilant with God and heed His commands. Pray that you may fight against sin and temptation and do His will.
Oh Lord, help every one of us to stay strong in the faith and not give into the lust of the flesh. May we not lose focus on You, so that when times of trial comes, You may relieve us of the evil situation we are in. Even in the very moment that we feel tempted and catch ourselves thinking about things that we shouldn't, may we be reminded to call upon Your Name, that You may take our thoughts captive. This way, the thoughts that have clouded our minds will be turned into good things that will glorify Your Name and no longer tear it down. Help us do this and live a righteous life in You, Jesus. I know that I am not capable of living such a life of faith, unless You are by my side. As my flesh is weak, I need You every day and every hour of my life. Your presence is what helps me choose what is right and do the right things. The Holy Spirit is able to pierce my heart when there is any sin in my life, that it may be cast out. I need this type of refreshing every day, that I may better walk in the faith. Their can't be anything that gets in the way of Your love, Lord. Since the day of my baptism, my life has been dedicated to You. I am born again in Your Spirit and I pray that I may always do Your will and not my own. May Your ways be my ways. I trust in You, God. You are my joy and my delight. I honor You and rejoice, just to know You and have You in my life. All praise to Your Holy Name. I love You. Amen.
Jesus explained what it takes to follow Him. He said, “he that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.” Continue Reading
James 1:12-15 (KJV)
12 Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.
13 Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man:
14 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.
15 Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.
John 12:34-36 (KJV)
34 The people answered him, We have heard out of the law that Christ abideth for ever: and how sayest thou, The Son of man must be lifted up? who is this Son of man?
35 Then Jesus said unto them, Yet a little while is the light with you. Walk while ye have the light, lest darkness come upon you: for he that walketh in darkness knoweth not whither he goeth.
36 While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light. These things spake Jesus, and departed, and did hide himself from them.
