DON'T BE A RUDDERLESS SHIP

Psalm 19:14 “May (the) words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.”

          As true believers in a dark and unbelieving world, it can be difficult to say and do that which is pleasing to our Lord. We encounter stresses that tend to wear us down and cause us to lose sight of our ultimate goal, which is to honor God with our thoughts, words and deeds. It’s a common malady. We get so caught up in our daily routines that we forget that which is of paramount importance. I often think to myself sadly, what if God forgot about me for even one day? My words slip away from me and I meditate on nothing. Fortunately, God is gracious and patient with us all. He truly is our rock and our redeemer. Without Almighty God to guide us and teach us by His Holy Spirit, we would be like a rudderless ship, directionless, floundering in an open sea of regret.

          A day without the word of God on our lips and their meditation in our hearts is a day without focus. Praying, listening and hearing from the Holy Spirit, partaking of even one verse of scripture to feed our weary souls that thirst for the living water it provides helps give us direction. Ask the Lord to speak to our hearts each day and to use us; we get so easily entangled with the events of the day if we don’t. Discipline; we need to learn to discipline our minds. Submission; we need submit to His leading. I am certainly not exempt from these issues. We are in this together. God is ready, willing and more than able to guide us through the treacherous waters of life, but we need to ask for His help. Once we take the time to realize He truly is in complete control, perhaps then we will learn to make our words and meditations honor Him. It is a learning process that is acquired through deliberate effort. God loves us without condition and without hesitation. Allow that love to determine your words and actions this day.

WALK WITH THE KING AND BE A BLESSING!!
