“For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.” 2 Corinthians 4:16 (KJV)
God is not complicated. Life in Him is pretty simple: Seek God, listen to Him, obey Him, and you will be prosperous. How easy it is to drift from those simple commands. When you drift, you find yourself in a place wondering, “How did I get way out here?” If you forget to let down an anchor while on a boat, the boat will naturally drift. If you take your hands off of a steering wheel, the car will naturally veer off course. If you stop praying from your heart and meditating on the Word of God, your faith will begin to slip and you’ll find yourself lost and confused, feeling weak and abandoned. Even far from shore, you are still a beloved daughter of the King. Jesus is the anchor of your soul. He is the One that keeps you from drifting. The more you stay in His Word, learning from Him and obeying Him, you will experience His amazing keeping power. Return to Him and get back to what works. Get back to the basics.
Prayer: Father, Forgive me if I have drifted away from You. You are my life and my strength. I’m lost without You. Thank You for drawing me close to You. Keep me by Your side and help me to forever remain in You. In Jesus name, Amen.
