Proverbs 23:7 (AMP) For as he thinks in his heart, so is he [in behavior—one who manipulates]. He says to you, “Eat and drink,” Yet his heart is not with you [but it is begrudging the cost].
We all at various intervals in our lives make immature choices.
Have you ever strayed from the Lord and ended up heading down the wrong path?
In life, we can find ourselves making choices that can prove to be fatal to our well-being and sustainability.
I cannot tell you enough all the times, I’ve made choices that were not in my best interest. But, God has always in some way or another worked things out for my good. How about you?
The price for making choices not well thought out or prayed through are significant to your human and spiritual development.
The truth of the matter is many times, I have had to experience hurt, despair, and turmoil in my life because of the immature choices I’ve made.
But again, I still see how the Lord has allowed those choices to be a significant part of my process and my path towards growing and healing.
And of course, like only the Lord can do things have ultimately improved the person I am today as a result. Although there is a much-needed improvement in my life in the areas of maturity and growth.
I can still see the progress that the Lord has developed in my life. How about you do see the progress in your life? Or do you only see what’s wrong in your life?
We must be aware of the trappings in our lives, our destiny is at stake.
When we take our eyes off the Lord, we can very easily get ourselves trapped in a place where we don’t want to be.
That is why it is so important that God is the focus of all we do. It’s process of growing and preparation that is literally at work in our lives concurrently when our lives are in the hands of the Lord.
Always remember how you think things through will determine your Destiny.
Point to ponder
I challenge you today to assess your direction. Is God at the center of your life and are you allowing the Lord to direct your path? If you are not, I urge you to do so before you get yourself trapped in a very undesirable place of no return!
