Proverbs 4:25 “Let your eyes look directly forward, and your gaze be straight before you!”
Those choices once made, your preferences — followed, for time
and times and then several more…
…will one day collapse. As such, no connections will stay to engage with Intention.
Therefore! The body — though willing — is errant…by taking directions found faulty.
The mind just repeats its past actions although every script from its memory has changed.
So go we with Age till another must lead us. Then what others choose guides our footsteps.
For better or worse, without options — declining; thus such are most pitied — Life’s pilgrim.
But what of those — sound? Both in
Spirit and Mind…still inclining their
ways towards Sin?
Yes what of that soul whose decades
of travel are (in contradiction) found against…
…our MASTER, The LORD? Thus my soul, “act your age”…by relinquishing all you once did!
Instead choose HIS ways all the more given Time…for HE shall NOT lead you astray!
As HIServant wiser now enough to know to surrender all the more,
Devotional: 1 Corinthians 16:11 “Seek
the LORD and HIS strength; seek HIS presence continually!”
The comparison here is of someone losing their mental faculties due to advanced age…
…compared with a soul who has their mind to clearly choose CHRIST and the Path set before them — yet does not.
It could be said of the first, should their view be unclear and their mind clouded that 1 Timothy 1:13 applies.
“I was formerly a blasphemer, a persecutor, and a violent man; yet because I had acted in ignorance and unbelief, I was shown mercy.”
So Ignorance has a similar thread with someone challenged by mental decline.
But! We are NOT ignorant nor as those so cognitively challenged! We have clarity of Mind and Spirit. So we must act our age!
Our mental and physical maturity in CHRIST above all else!
Aside from the blessed fact that we experience HIS blessings and peace even in times of oppression and loss…look at 1 Corinthians 9:25.
“Every athlete exercises self-control in all things. They do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable.”
We press on to the high calling of JESUS CHRIST and the long awaited clarity of forever — in Heaven! So preach CHRIST!
Be clear in your speech and even more precise with your actions!
Then those of all ages will most accurately find GOD’s wisdom
displayed THROUGH you. AND!
They’ll not be ignorant to the devil’s devices to throw them off track! They’ll be readied in the armor of GOD!
So be diligent to guide the eyes and Intentions of all…upon JESUS!
Amen and amen!
