Run For Your Life! ~ June 3

Run For Your Life!

But run the right direction!

But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness. 1Timothy 6:11

We do not choose to change, we choose to love God and allow Him to change us. I am firm in my belief that when we focus on God and make loving Him our priority, He pours His grace on us, and we become like Him. We do not decide to flee the things of this world and pursue godly things, but rather, by focusing on Him we allow Him to mold us and shape us in His image. As we move closer to Him and begin to be covered in His grace, we are changed.

Our world is full of bad things, and we are tempted by them daily. Fleeing from the bad is as easy as turning toward God and focusing on Him. That’s not to say we won’t still have trials and troubles, or be tempted. When we pursue the things of God, Satan will attempt to block our path in an all-out effort to keep us from experiencing God’s blessings. In fact, if we don’t bump into Satan occasionally, it could mean we’re going the same way he is!

The more we focus on God, the more we will find ourselves pursuing Him.
