9 How can a young person stay on the path of purity?
By living according to your word. Psalm 119:9
The only way for us to walk in holiness is to follow the leading of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit will always lead us according to God’s word. If we desire to grow in maturity and intimacy with the Lord it requires that we set aside time each day with the Lord to get alone and to study His word and pray.
We are transformed by the renewing of the mind and it is the truth of God’s word that renews our minds. We are simply transformed from the inside out as we become a true disciple of Jesus Christ. It is the Holy Spirit who reveals truth to us and helps us to understand. The mistake some make is they try to understand God’s word in their own wisdom and understanding and this always leads to error.
We will grow as deep as we desire in our relationship with God. Those who make seeking the Lord the priority of their lives will be like Oak trees whose roots go deep into the ground. They will stand strong and bright in this dark hour of history. It is through the lives of God’s people that the Lord glorifies and magnifies His name. May we hunger and thirst for His kingdom more than the air we breath and the food we eat.
