As a result, we are no longer to be children, tossed here and there by waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, by craftiness in deceitful scheming; but speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in all aspects into Him who is the head, even Christ” (Ephesians 4:14-15)
Maturity is possible, but many are they who chose the path of flowing with the stream. One must think, reason, and be willing to study in order to live the life Christ gives us. You study those things which help you for what is important to you. You learn based upon what drives you from your heart. Are not the things of the Lord more precious than all other things? He is the One who created all things. Do not be tossed about by created things.
Lord, I am tossed about by the whims of this world. Help me to see through this so that I may live in You and You in me. Guide me according to Your goodness so that I might become a rock settled on You, the Rock of my salvation. Let me know where I need to go and the things I need to do so that I may live into the promise of this life of faith. Help me now and always to abide in You alone.
Lord Jesus, You have breathed in me Your Holy Spirit. Lead me today according to the Father’s will to see through the confusion of this age so that I may be led by Your Spirit to do what is good, right and salutary. Let me no longer trust in anything above You and the Word You have given me. Grow me up in You so that I may bear the light of Your presence in all I say, do, and think. Guide me in the way You know I need to go. Amen.
