Tossing or stable?

“Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by cunning and craftiness of men in their deceitful scheming.” Ephesians 4:14.  

Gazing at the waves reminded me of this verse in Ephesians. God does not want us floundering or deceived by the world. There He knows we will encounter ideas or actions that Satan will use to side track us from godly work or lead our thinking away from Christ.  He wants us to not be infants anymore but growing up in Him. How do we do that?   We can pray, pray and pray for wisdom and discernment.   “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God” Philippians 4:6    We can measure all things against His Word.  “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.” Psalm 119:105  “For the word of God is living and active . Sharper than any double-edged sword , it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow ; it judges thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Hebrews 4:12    We can also seek to grow in the knowledge of God. Colossians 1:6 and 10 speak of this. “All over the world this gospel is bearing fruit and growing just as it has been doing among you since the day you heard it and understood God’s grace in all its truth.  And we pray this in order that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God,”.

Blessings today as you think about your stability in Christ and the foundation of His Word in your life.

P.S. My internet was down today so I had to write this on my phone. Harder to do! God is faithful and I managed. Hope you found my words thought provoking.
