Do Not Settle

Search me, O God, and know my heart; test my thoughts. Point out anything you find in me that makes you sad, and lead me along the path of everlasting life. Psalm 139:23-24 TLB.

Never settle in your walk with God. Never let Him show you a truth that you don’t immediately begin to live up to.

He who follows discipline shows the way to life,
But he who ignores reproof leads astray.
Proverbs 10:17, Tanakh (NJPS)

Three characteristics of never settling:

  • Face the brutal facts.
  • Be drastically resolute, willing to pay whatever price, engage in whatever discipline necessary.
  • Acknowledge that you can’t do it alone, that you are entirely dependent on the power of God. Full stop.

Obedience means never settling.
