Read: I Kings 8:57-61
And I will cause you to walk in my statutes (Ezekiel 36:27).
Walk In My Statutes
God’s full work of grace in the soul is a practical work. His Spirit leads me not only to approve His laws, but also to walk in them. The Holy Spirit will save me from a careless and merely verbal religion.
The sanctified life is one of progressive obedience. Walking in God’s statutes is more than taking a single step. It is faithfully putting my feet down one after the other-always within the known will of God. Often I must take a step forward into a new area of His will that has just been made known to me. Today’s promise means, I will cause you to move forward, seeing more of My will and doing more today than you saw and did yesterday.
Walking in the will of God is important, but the promise here is, I will cause you to walk. God not only shows us the way; He also supplies the power.
Does the Holy Spirit urge me to do something that seems hard? Do I have a natural tendency to shrink from it? How can I go forward? In prayer I tell God that I love Him. I tell Him that He knows what is best for me. I tell Him that I want to do His will. From some unseen reservoir of strength I feel courage flow into my spirit and I am able to do what before seemed impossible to me.
Affirmation For Today
I do now commit my years to God. I now remind Him that I have promised to do His will. I now accept the courage that comes from the Holy Spirit-courage to do what He is showing me today.
