Can you keep a secret? I'm sure you can. We all can. Before you start to argue with me, let me qualify that statement. Secrets are something we keep all the time...at least about ourselves, our struggles, our pains, thoughts, dreams, desires, and sometimes our motives.
"Secrecy" is a word that has deceptively fooled so many people since the "beginning of time." Nothing is truly secret. Our ways (course of life, mode of action, our conversations, our directions) are right there in front of the eyes of God. Right there in full view! He weighs them in the balance of HIS understanding.
How vital it is for us, that we purpose every step of our lives on this journey God has called us to. We can't slip into cruise control.. He's examining and weighing and considering the course that we're on. When we begin to rely on "cruise control," it's so easy to become comfortable, content, and complacent - three C's that begin to spell disaster.
Thankfully, He's there to help us, to lead us, and to pick us back up. But, we must purpose every step to follow Him - not just rely on our own understanding. I definitely haven't found that to be very reliable. O HOW I NEED HIM EVERY HOUR!!
