DITW – Keep the Path, Despite Opposition – June 28, 2018

Date: 28 Jun 2018 Comments: 0

The more powerful we become as people, the higher up the social stratum we climb, the more we tend to forget what brought us to where we are. I have always strived to show my appreciation to the path that led me to where I am. I started as a pizza cutter/boxer for a pizza company and eventually made my way up to leading professional teams to accomplish big things. Yet, in all of those things, I am reminded daily of how quickly God could change my course should he so desire. In my reading today, I can gather that although God loves me, I should always remember his power as Job explained to the priestly men who tried to convince him to renounce God: “Doesn’t his majesty terrify you? Doesn’t your fear of him overwhelm you? Your platitudes are as valuable as ashes. Your defense is as fragile as a clay pot.” (Job 13:11-12, NLT). It reminds me that although God gives me the ability to call on him, I should always remember to ask in reverence if I expect any kind of response. As we are reminded in Romans, we all must be willing to explain to God why we did or did not do something: “Yes, each of us will give a personal account to God” (Romans 14:12, NLT). In the end, it is only God’s opinion of us that should matter to us at all and we should always approach that with fear and trembling “For he knows those who are false, and takes note of all their sins.” (Job 11:11, NLT). So I will continue to seek God’s will with everything I do and not care what the world thinks of the path God gives me, it’s the only way to live in God’s will: “To reject the law is to praise the wicked; to obey the law is to fight them.” (Proverbs 28:4, NLT). I want to live a life in humility of the grace God has given me and may I show the changes he has made in my life by my actions.
