Every day you and I face a variety of choices regarding the path we take. Many things influence our decisions for both good and bad, yet God wants us to choose daily to walk according to His ways . Over the next 31 days I will be sharing from the devotional journal, “Walk This Way”, with the prayer that it helps you to grow in your walk with God as you pursue a greater understanding of the path He calls you to.
Here is day one with an important reminder that walking God’s way will lead you on a blameless path.
Walk a Blameless Path
“LORD, who may dwell in your sanctuary?
Who may live on your holy hill?
He whose walk is blameless
and who does what is righteous,
who speaks the truth from his heart.”
Psalm 15:1-2 (NIV)
Have you ever been blamed for something that wasn’t your fault? How did you feel? Have you ever blamed someone for something and then found out they weren’t at fault? What did you do? How do you feel when you are at fault for something yet no one blames you for what happened? What do you think it would look like to walk a blameless path?
God says that the one who can dwell in His sanctuary is the one whose walk is blameless. It shouldn’t take a very lengthy reading of God’s Word to discover that none of us will ever be blameless through our own efforts. It is only through Jesus Christ and the forgiveness of sin that He offers that we can be declared blameless. As you pray, ask God to help you identify areas of wrongdoing that you’ve done to others, and to God, that you need to do your part in making right. Pray that God would give you the courage to seek forgiveness from others and from Him so that no accusation would have reason to stick to you. Pray that in Jesus you would always be found walking a blameless path.
