Stop Swerving!

"Do not swerve to the right or to the left; turn your foot away from evil." Proverbs 4:27

The only way that we can walk out life with Christ is by walking straight according to the Word of God. Psalms tells us that the Word of God is a light to our path. If we aren't being guided by the Word of God, then we are going to stumble off to the right and to the left and fall into the weeds of temptation and sin.

On Sundays, we have been looking at the life of Gideon and we have learned about Israel's oppression under the hand of Midian. The reason for the oppression? They swerved to the left and right. They didn't stick to the narrow road of obedience to God. Jesus said the gate to reconciliation and eternity with God is narrow and hard, and few find it.

In your life, are you swerving? Are you at the wheel of this vehicle called life, swerving from fog line to center line and back and forth? It won't be long until you crash head on! "Turn your foot away from evil"! Dig deep into the Word of God! Get into real, accountable relationships with other Christians and grow in your walk with the Lord!
