February 16

What are you doing? You’ve already accepted Jesus as your Savior, yet you still go running back to your old ways! Is it comfortable there? You have already exited Egypt, but in your mind, it would be easier to go back there, where others tell you what to do and how to live. Someone hurt your feelings, so you turn your back on your one true love because you’ve lost sight of Him. Don’t go back there! March right back to the foot of the cross, ask forgiveness, and be bold in the face of the enemy. However, don’t try to do this in your own strength, step back, and allow Jesus to power you forward. Give up, and give in to Jesus’ ways. If you go back to your old ways, Jesus is of no advantage to you. I know that it’s not easy staying on the narrow path, it’s even treacherous at times, but with Jesus guiding you, you can relax and follow Him with no worries about which direction to travel. Trust Him, He has only your best interest in mind.

For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery. Look: I, Paul, say to you that if you accept circumcision, Christ will be of no advantage to you. Galatians 5:1-2
