Commit thy way
Psalm 37:5,6 - thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass. And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday.
The hardest part of being a Christian is being committed.
Even if you have grown in spirit still it is as difficult as it was in the start to stay committed in the Lord. People around you (even if they call themselves men and women of God) will not spare to throw stones at you at the slightest opportunity.
People prefer to follow the common track so that they are not caught alone and questioned. They will compromise their belief irrespective of the fact it makes sense or not. Everyone does make mistakes and so will you, if you something on your own.
When the Lord started teaching me on a one to one basis, I was bought out from the darkness slowly by slowly. People did laugh at me in the start (some even do today) but I did not give up I stuck to the Lord. Gradually things started becoming clearer and clearer. It is not that today I am totally in the light; no, even today I am at a stage moving towards light. I may make mistakes but they are less compared to what was in the start.
Leaving for Christ, none of us can claim to be totally enlightened and without flaws. When people see flaws they will stone, there are also chances they will do the same even if you do not make a mistake. The more one is in the flesh, the more will one get hurt when people stone you.
Being aware that one can make mistakes and one continuously making the same mistake is different. One needs to grow, so one needs to learn from mistake if made, and avoid them the next time.
The Lord speaks to all those who are committed o Him and trust in Him; that He make you righteous works shine bring and your judgment a bright smile.
