Just walking?



Walking alone? How often we in our willfulness cast away our confidence in God and put our cares upon us? If God really loves us, why does He give us the ability to choose to walk away from Him? Wouldn’t it be a whole lot easier if we didn’t possess the ability to be willful?


Think about it. If there were a sort of glue, spiritual glue, that held us tightly to our Heavenly Father, life would be a whole lot easier. Temptation would be more easily overcome. Making wrong decisions based on our carnal nature would be limited.


God’s Word tells us: God’s Word tells us to cast our cares upon the Lord (1 Peter 5) and put our confidence in him (Hebrews 10).


God’s will is that we have free will. That sets up a tremendous challenge in our lives. We can choose to walk with Him or choose to walk alone. The trick is which stick do we choose to use–the stick of the God’s Word or one of our own choosing. One always points in the right direction–the other is always a gamble.


“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own” (Matthew 6:34) www.thispassingday.com
