The Blameless Walk   1 comment

“For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favor and honor; no good thing does he withhold from those whose walk is blameless.  O Lord Almighty, blessed is the man who trusts in you” Psalm 84:11-12, NIV.

The Psalmist mentions just before this that he would rather be a doorkeeper for the Lord than to be in the tent of the wicked.  God is the giver of all things good, and He freely gives to those who truly love and trust Him.  In fact, this text says that He withholds NOTHING from those who are truly obedient to Him, whose walk is blameless.

I don’t believe that this is meant to mean “sinless.”  I do believe that this is talking about those whose walk with the Lord is evident to all; one who deals immediately and properly with sin in his or her life.

I don’t need to be perfect but I do need to be the best possible version of myself that the Lord God Almighty created me to be.  This does not give me the right to freely and deliberately sin, knowing that forgiveness is always available.  Planned or premeditated sin is a slap in the face to the Lord as you are basically saying to Him, “My ways are better than Yours.”  Good luck with that one!

To be the best possible version of myself I must cast off everything that I desire to be in my own mind.  Then I must give the Lord free reign to mold me into His image.

Lord, I am neither sinless nor blameless.  Many times I choose my ways over yours.  Forgive me for not trusting You as completely as I should.  I desire to have a walk with You that is blameless.  This can only be achieved by drawing closer to Your side!  Amen.
