“Finally, my brethren, rejoice in the Lord. To write the same things again is no trouble to me, and it is a safeguard for you” (Philippians 3:1).

To write the same things again is not problem.  What are the same things?  That Jesus is Lord and that we do well to follow Him at all times.  It sounds so simple, but then we are distracted and each go our own way.  Do not be led by your heart, that is, your feelings, but by the One who came to give you His heart.  Do not be led by the world, but by the One who created the world.  In Him alone is life.

Lord, I hear these words again and again and at times it seems as though they never sink in.  Lead me, O Lord, in the way of life You give so that I may be guided by You alone.  Let me not be caught up in the tug-of-war that is constantly happening in this world, but led by You as I am lifted out of this world and fitted to stay with You forever in heaven.  Let me see this goal clearly so that I may follow it.

Lord Jesus, You have come into the world so that we may have life and have it abundantly.  Guide me Lord in order that I would hold fast to the truth You have shown through the demonstration of living the life we are to live in this world.  Keep my eyes upon You and guide me always in the truth so that I would seek to do what is pleasing in the sight of the Father, now and always.  Amen.
