Getting Your Life Back on Course by charles stanley

Getting Your Life Back on Course
HEBREWS 12:1-3
How do you view your life? Is it an exciting challenge filled with contentment and joy? Or does it feel more like a ditch that has you trapped and struggling?
Sadly, many people drift through life without taking hold of God’s terrific plan for them. Our Creator gives each person the specific gifts, abilities, and circumstances necessary to live according to His purpose. Instead, many try to squeeze pleasure out of their lives, not realizing that the Almighty’s best is where true fulfillment is found.
Sadly, a number of saved individuals walk with the Lord for a time but then get off track. This can happen for many reasons. Some become faint-hearted and lose the desire to endure through difficult circumstances. For others, worldly ideas and goals become distractions. Or perhaps certain people influence them to lose focus. Sports, hobbies, or simply busyness can also envelop a believer and cause his heart to stray from Christ.
No matter what the cause, any life separated from the only true anchor—Jesus—is in danger. God offers believers a full life in Him. But the Bible teaches that Christians will not thrive if they are living apart from His Word, godly principles, and a close relationship with Him.
Do you feel that you are walking closely with Jesus? Or have the cares of life entangled you? Pray for wisdom as you consider these questions, and tell the Lord you desire to surrender whatever it is, apart from Him, that has your passion. Commit to pray, to read the Word, and to obey.
