Secure footing

I loved this photo!  It spoke to my heart about the passage I wanted to write about this morning from 2 Peter 3:17 and 18
...Be on guard so that you will not be carried away by the errors of wicked people and lose your own secure footing.  Rather, you must grow in grace and knowledge of our LORD and Savior Jesus Christ.

The lady above made the choice to climb that rock ledge and her footing is definitely not secure.  She might say it is, but I don't think a little piece hanging out is big enough for my foot to rest on and one thing I have is small feet.  Small feet still wants big ledge!  Along with the rest of me!

Our choices sometimes cause us to have insecure footing.  We allow others thinking to influence what we believe God's Word tells us.  We think they know more and we love them, so we take their word for it and what they believe is not what God's Word tells us!  Did you pick up on the words be on guard?  Do you remember God's Word telling us that Satan is like a prowling lion waiting to pounce on us at all times?  Well, sometimes he uses people that we least suspect and they don't realize to cause us to become unbalanced on our feet and fall!

We must know God's Word for ourselves and allow the Holy Spirit to be our guide!  We must trust the Spirit to lead us and show us the way!  When we follow the guide we will be on firm, solid ground and know exactly what we believe.  We will grow and in grace and knowledge and know that our feet are based solidly only in God's Word!

Today, pick up God's Word for yourself and allow the Spirit to grow you!  Don't be hanging on the edge insecure in exactly what God's Word says - know it!  Allow His Word to be your life line!

Sweet blessings,
