Standing Still

"Even if you're on the right track you'll get run over if you just sit there." -Author Unknown

Wow, isn't that so true?! I think this happens to so many people out there, Christians and non- Christians alike. God has never intended for us to just sit here and stand still. Yes, there are always times when we need to be still and know that He is God, but God wants us to keep moving forward and getting closer to Him and closer to Heaven.

I've seen personally in my life and in others that there are people who are on the right track and following that narrow road and because they just stood still and didn't allow God to help them move forward, they fell away from the Lord. Casting Crowns did a song called "Slow Fade" and that song is so extremely true. People start off "on fire" for the Lord and slowly they keep allowing more and more junk into their life that starts either making them stand still or making them go backwards and before we know it we don't even talk to the Lord anymore.

How do we prevent this from happening? Well the Bible says to flee from sin, so when something sinful comes into our life the best thing to do is to get away from it. The minute we allow sin to get into ours lives is the minute we begin to lose who we are truly. Don't give the devil a foothold. Allow Jesus to move in your life and to move you. Love y'all!!!
