“You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons; you cannot partake of the table of the Lord and the table of demons. Or do we provoke the Lord to jealousy? We are not stronger than He, are we?” (1 Corinthians 10:21-22).
Joshua said it in the Old Testament and its message is true today. Choose whom you will serve. We were created to serve and we will serve somebody. So choose whom you will serve and in all things, as Paul will tell the Colossians, do so as serving the Lord. The Lord is your strength and with His leading, He will take you where you need to be. Be guided by the Lord and no one else.
Lord, teach me all that I need to know. Give me eyes to see that I would not be led astray by the whims of this world. Help me now and always to see that only in You is there the hope of eternity. Lead me, O Lord, that I may remain on the narrow way. Guide me that I may stay in step with You. Help me to overcome those things that get in the way of following You in and through all things that I may learn to be faithful.
Lord Jesus, You know the obstacles that come along to lead us astray. Guide me, O Lord, in my wandering so that You need not go off to find me. Help me have a clear mind and sharp wit, that I would hold fast to the truth You have revealed and walk humbly with You all the days of my life. Amen
