“Ditch the fake reality of the world and cling to the Truth of Christ”~TB
When God puts you on a path, be vigilant in your thoughts and actions because the opposition will lie in wait to push you into a ditch and into a world of sinful desires. In an upside down world, evil will use people, thoughts, and anything he can to get you to give up your position in Christ. Keep yourself disciplined in the Word so that you may see the fake reality for what it is.
When you continually read and study the Truth, you are able to throw off the sinful traits and behaviors of the life you once lead. Though there are tests from time to time, remember that you are redeemed in Christ, and He looks at you through His eyes. When you lean on this Truth, that you are saved and made whole in Christ, the past evil deeds are less tempting because you know your inheritance is stored within your salvation.
Are you safely driving on God’s highway or are you veering towards the evil ditch?

1 Not to us, O LORD, not to us, but to your name goes all the glory for your unfailing love and faithfulness.
2 Why let the nations say, “Where is their God?”
3 Our God is in the heavens, and he does as he wishes.
4Their idols are merely things of silver and gold, shaped by human hands.
5 They have mouths but cannot speak, and eyes but cannot see.
6They have ears but cannot hear, and noses but cannot smell.
7 They have hands but cannot feel, and feet but cannot walk, and throats but cannot make a sound.
8 And those who make idols are just like them, as are all who trust in them.
9 O Israel, trust the LORD ! He is your helper and your shield.
10 O priests, descendants of Aaron, trust the LORD ! He is your helper and your shield.
11 All you who fear the LORD, trust the LORD ! He is your helper and your shield.
12 The LORD remembers us and will bless us. He will bless the people of Israel and bless the priests, the descendants of Aaron.
13 He will bless those who fear the LORD, both great and lowly.
14 May the LORD richly bless both you and your children.
15 May you be blessed by the LORD, who made heaven and earth.
16 The heavens belong to the LORD, but he has given the earth to all humanity.
17 The dead cannot sing praises to the LORD, for they have gone into the silence of the grave.
18 But we can praise the LORD both now and forever! Praise the LORD !
