Scripture Reading: Psalm 12:1–8
Key Verse: Psalm 12:6
The words of the Lord are pure words,
Like silver tried in a furnace of earth,
Purified seven times.
To find a cause that we will stand behind, fight for, live for, and die for takes us being in complete agreement with the principles and the leadership. How willing would we be to defend something that does not stir us with passion? How eager would we be to risk anything for a cause that merely piqued our interest?
Living in agreement with God and His Word is something we must learn if we truly desire to walk with Him. Keeping in step with God proves more than challenging if our hearts are not unified with His. After we have reconciled our relationship with God by accepting His Son, Jesus Christ, as our Lord and Savior, we must learn to trust Him by living a life in agreement with His principles and precepts.
What God says about His Son, His church, His Word, and sin are all of utmost importance for us. If we think that some of these are flawed or untrue, how can we walk in step with what God desires for our lives?
Disunity results in any organization when there is a disagreement between leadership and the body of people. How can the cause be advanced by someone when he does not believe in the cause he is advancing? As we submit more of our lives to Him, our wills are broken to the point that our wills become what God wills for us.
Heavenly Father, I submit my life anew. Break my will so I can easily submit to Your will for me.
