Verse Of The Day: Make the path for your feet level, so that all your ways may be established.
Proverbs 4 : 26
LISTEN: Beloved, how often do you examine your life? Do you really watch what you do? Do you know that your choices and actions can make or mar you? Do you also know that when you refuses to watch your steps you will certainly regret your decision eventually? Beloved, are you really making a good path for your feet? To make a good path for your feet means, to consider your actions before you do them, and see that they agree with the rule.
A lot of people do not consider their actions. They act and damn the consequences. Are you a person that does not consider his or her actions before doing them? If yes, you must have a rethink today before it is too late. Your actions are like seeds, whatever you sow you will certainly reap, here and hereafter (Galatians 6 : 7).
When you make a good path for your feet according to our verse of the day, your ways will be established. God want you to let your actions be uniformly and constantly good in spite of all temptations to the contrary. He wants you to do the right thing no matter the pressure to do otherwise. If you think and do the right thing, you can expect God’s blessing and good success in what you do.
Beloved, it is your responsibility to watch your actions and guard against doing the wrong thing. Remember that each action you take on a daily basis goes a long way to affect your future. Therefore, whatever it will take to do the right and build a better future do it. It is the only life you will ever build. Never forget that your life today is the result of your attitudes and choices in the past; and your life tomorrow will equally be the result of your attitudes and choices you make today.
Henceforth, watch your lifestyle and your actions and you will save yourself from the miseries of life that could be avoided through wise living. Beloved, let us consider our ways and determine to do the right things no matter what. Watch your steps and always be careful of your actions and you will be glad you did.
