Thought for Today

“He is in the way of life
that keepeth instruction
Proverbs 10:17

A tender heart is open to the instruction of the Lord. It is attentive to His whispers. It is as we come to know His voice and His way that we are able to grow and develop in our life in God. Our teach-ability is evidence that we are in “the way of life”.

Paul was ever attentive to the instruction of the Lord. His life was one of continual learning. His was a life-long quest to know His God.

“I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need”
Philippians 4:12

This learning was experiential to the point where he could glorify God in every situation in which he found himself. While it is easy to gain knowledge, only the experiential knowing of Him will bring changes, eternal changes, into our lives.

It is in keeping His instruction whereby we can be confident that we are in the Way of Life. It is the verity of our life in Him.
