“Let us search and try our ways, and turn again to the Lord” (Lamentations 3:40).
Are you a true believer, a true disciple of Jesus Christ? And have you recently turned away from following the Lord? If so, there is a way to turn around and start fresh. If you are going your own way, stop and think about the direction you are headed and the sorrow that it will bring in the end. No, you won’t lose your salvation, but you will lose the joy of the Lord and the peace and rest of heart that He wants you to have in your day-to-day life.
There are many unhappy, miserable Christians in the world, simply because they are going their own way and doing their own thing. They know what is right, but they choose not to obey and follow the One who loves them and desires their good and happiness. The Lord Jesus, when speaking to His disciples and explaining many things to them, concluded by saying, “If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them” (John 13:17).
If you have been going your own way lately, search your heart, confess your self-will, “and turn again to the Lord.”
