The principle of Christian living is to rely on the will of God and not on one’s cleverness, to depend on the grace of God and not on our own wisdom. This is a lesson we need to learn.
Suppose some action is put before you, but you do not know whether to do it this way or that, or not at all. You have no idea which is right. So you begin to deliberate on the effect of whichever action you may take. If you do it this way or that, what will people say? You therefore try to be clever. How? To say or to do that which will meet the least problem and avoid the most opposition. By following this policy it means you have forgotten that God’s children do not live on earth by human cleverness. To be a Christian is really quite simple. You merely ask one thing: “God, what do You want me to do?” We must get back to our first love, where we asked God what will you have me do, or say in your name. When we take our eyes off God we get pulled away from our true purpose, to worship God in spirit and in truth. To be a true Christian we must be like Him..Our hearts must love Him and His ways and His word must be planted in our hearts. To love Him is to obey Him. Selah!
