Good morning! I pray your week is going well. I’m still adjusting to my new schedule and prayerfully will get my blog schedule back on track.
TFTD: Consistently make small steps
9 How can a young person stay on the path of purity?By living according to your word.10 I seek you with all my heart;do not let me stray from your commands.
1 You, God, are my God,earnestly I seek you; I thirst for you,my whole being longs for you, in a dry and parched landwhere there is no water.
In life, it’s not important to take large steps towards your future, rather it’s important to make consistent small steps. Consistent small changes in your habits, attitudes and actions will lead to a HUGE impact on your life and the lives of others. As Christians, it’s vital that we consistently seek God. It’s not important if you can read the bible in 90 days or if you can memorize every scripture from the Old Testament to the New, what matters is that in your personal relationship with Christ you are consistently seeking Him.
Psalm 119:9 ask, how can a person stay on the path of purity? The answer is by living according to God’s word. How can you live according to God’s word? I’m glad you asked. In order to live according to His word, you must be familiar with His word. The only way you will grow familiar with the Word is by reading and studying it on a CONSISTENT basis. I will be honest, I have never read the bible in its entirety, but that doesn’t make me less saved than the next person. My walk and relationship with Christ is different from the next person. What I can say is that I have a consistent devotion time that allows me to meet with my JESUS daily and not just once a day.
I want to encourage new believers, believers who may have fallen back into old sinful ways and even believers who think they are doing well, to consistently make time for Christ. Consistently pray to Him, read and study His word, attend a local church, seek Him on serving in ministry or leading a ministry, consistently ask questions so you can seek God to help you find the answers. It’s important to consistently make small steps towards your purpose and calling. God just wants you to be consistent.
Take a moment to examine your personal relationship and ask “Have I been consistently growing closer to or further apart from God?”
Have a blessed day.
Little means much when it’s done consistently!
