Walking humbly

The Word of God instructs to "walk humbly with thy God." This is quite well known to a Christian and is a reminder to keep us aware of God`s constant presence in our lives.

Continuing on the subject, we are always moving in a direction. We are always walking. We walk with others as we build relationships. We may even find ourselves in awkward or difficult situations as we walk out our lives before believers and non believers.

Reflecting on my personal experiences over the years I have learned that I cannot
change people with my will. I have learned that walking humbly with God also brings humility into the other relationships in my life. I have learned to mediate on this when I run into disagreements with others.

Pray for conviction and avoid condemnation.

No one is condemned into the Kingdom of God, only Christ will condemn those out of it. The hypocrites, deceivers, and such will have their time.
People are entreated and loved into God`s Kingdom, whether it be by family from a young age or friend, or even a stranger.

We see the evil around us and our conscience triggers. Our anger may rise or our thoughts may pool around the subject.

What do we do in a world like this!? What do we choose today as our strategy? Do we pray for the Holy conviction or condemn everything unfit of our approval?

God`s Spirit is mighty and will convict the world of wrong, as we shine before men. This is our hope! Our hope being that men would praise God and give him the praise due to His name, that one day all will shine with the glory of God!
