I recently began watching a documentary about a group of people that set out on a 600 mile journey to the burial site of the apostle James. Their group was made up of people with different personalities so they could help each other as they traveled, talked, overcame obstacles, and grew closer to God. During the journey, they learned about themselves, grew in their faith, and learned more about living in the world.
We are all "walking" on a journey through our earthly lives and we know that we live in a world filled with sin. Having the right people around us is important, but we also must remember that God is there for us. Sometimes on our journey we can easily distinguish right from wrong, but there are times when our choices are less clear. In order to be prepared for all the situations of the world, we need to know God's will and His Word. We need to call on God for guidance and direction. We also need to be prepared to listen to Him and to walk away from sin!
Call on God for wisdom and guidance, then follow Him and walk away from sin!
Thank You for Your Word and the guidance you provide in my life. Help me to always follow You and to walk away from sin in my life. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
