“Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is. And do not get drunk with wine, for that is debauchery, but be filled with the Spirit, addressing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with your heart, giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, submitting to one another out of reverence for Christ.”
Ephesians 5:15-21

I love the analogy of walking used in this passage. Paul could’ve used any metaphor to describe our response to Christ’s love for us, but he uses the word “walk”.  God could’ve had us simply “stand”, receive him, check off the salvation box, and then wait for Him to call us up. But no… walking implies movement, a process, and a journey. One that not only will include ups and downs, easy times and hard times, but a journey that we can know, without a doubt, we’re not alone in.

God is with us, and with us every step of the way. I know I need to be reminded myself that I don’t have to have it all figured out in order to be with God. What a relief! Lord, thank You for that truth. Thank You that no matter what, You are with me. Please help me turn to You and seek Your way and will for my walk!
