Job 23:10-11

“But he knows where I am going. And when he tests me, I will come out as pure as gold. For I have stayed on God’s paths; I have followed his ways and not turned aside.

Job 23:10-11 NLT

The Lord knows our every step.  As we walk this journey with Him we will be tested throughout our lives.  It is the testing we face that grows the faith that we have been given.  God’s desire is that we would grow in Him.  Our growth in Him is progressive and He is always taking us to deeper and greater places in Him.

God calls us to walk in obedience and this is only possible as we seek Him each day.  As we abide in Him, He gives us the strength to accomplish all He has called us to and has created us for.  Nothing in our lives happens by accident with the Lord, but everything has a divine purpose.  We are called to hold fast to the faith we have in Christ and not to turn to the right or to the left.

The blessing and favor of the Lord rests upon us because of our faith in Jesus Christ.  Nothing we have received from the Lord is earned by anything we have accomplished.  It is simply a gift from Him because of the grace and mercy He has for us.  Let us fix our eyes this day upon the Lord and continue to seek Him in greater ways.  The time of His return draws ever nearer.
