I wore a new pair of tennis shoes today and they were absolutely perfect. They fit as if they were made for my feet. No pinching or rubbing the wrong way. Is your walk with God like that? When He walks with you do you get along so well it’s almost like you are one person….always agreeing on stuff? Or does God fit you like a pair of shoes that rub you the wrong way? Does God pinch your style?
Our human nature naturally wants to do things contrary to God’s way. There is a good way to start to change that. Speaking from personal experience; If you know you want to do something you shouldn’t, then that is a good time to get down on your knees and beg God to change that for you. He will. At least that is what has worked for me. Changing your heart to His way of thinking is a prayer that God wants to answer for you. He created you. He loves you. He wants the best for you. Let your walk with God become like a great fitting pair of shoes.
I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. Galatians 2:20
But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin. 1 John 1:7
