Life can feel like a treadmill! First, we have to learn how to walk consistently on the path the Lord lays out. We learn this by letting Him control our journey, by giving Him complete control of the course. At times it goes really slow and at times it goes really fast. Sometimes we get use to a certain pace and we can become very comfortable with it. The more comfortable we become the more we let our guard down. Before we know it, out of nowhere we can step off course, stumble, or fall. Nobody likes the humiliation of falling but it is the hurt it can produce that is difficult to deal with. Sometimes it is our emotions that get wounded and sometimes it is the other things in life. Either way when we fall, it can be damaging. The thing that is amazing is we do not have fall. Jesus tells us the way to walk, but when we do not listen we fall. When we do fall we can eliminate the hurt but using our safety cord: the grace of Jesus Christ!
Do not let yourself feel too comfortable with your spiritual walk. When you do, Satan can come and he will do his best to trip us up. When we trip, we fall. When we fall, it causes hurt. Be on the alert for Satan. He can attack anytime, anyway, anywhere! Keep your eyes open and let the light of Christ enlighten your path.
So watch your step, friends. Make sure there's no evil unbelief lying around that will trip you up and throw you off course, diverting you from the living God.
