Living the christian life can be a challenge. We want to serve tbe Lord. We want to do what’s right but, even though we know the right thing to do, we slip… we fall… we sin. The pull of temptation is strong.
Proverbs 141:4 says, “Don’t let me drift toward evil or take part in acts of wickedness. Don’t let me share in the delicacies of those who do wrong.”
Think about that phrase.. “don’t let me drift toward evil.” When something drifts, it just gradually moves in a direction.
That’s exactly what can happen in our Christian lives… we drift toward wrong things. It’s not hard to do.
Maybe you tell a little lie… nothing big… we tell ourselves.. but then we do it again and again.
Maybe you start doing something you know you shouldn’t be doing.. you don’t it too much… just a little… but then you do it more and more.
Paul said in Romans 7:15, “For what I am doing, I do not understand; for I am not practicing what I would like to do but I am doing the very thing I hate.”
I can identify with Paul. So, today.. we need to ask the Lord to not let us drift toward evil With the help of the Holy Spirit we need to stay on the right path…. we need to stay on the straight and narrow… don’t drift toward evil
