Walking right!!

How can a young person stay on the path of purity?
    By living according to your word.
I seek you with all my heart;
    do not let me stray from your commands.

A man walks according to the thoughts of his heart. He does whatever he feels is right. There is no stopping. Without any policing how can a man walk right? Walking in the right path is not easy and no man does so willingly. Each person has a part in him that doesn't want to obey and do what is right. 

It's when you live according to the word you can stay in the path of purity. Jesus lived such a life. He was word himself. He waited upon God the father each day and carried out his will on this earth. He walked on this earth blameless and flawless. No person could point a hand at him. We also need to be like him. How can it be possible? By living according to his word alone! 

Living according to his word involves several things:

- Seeking God with all your heart

It means to desire Him, want Him, need Him above any and every other desire, want, or need. It is with all of what you are that you are to seek God.  With your entire being

 - Hiding God's word in your hear

 You memorize. So that the Holy Spirit can bring it to your remembrance when you need it. So you can then be comforted, corrected, and guided.

- Meditating on God's precepts

 A precept is a rule of moral conduct. God wants you to act morally, in holiness, with love, and truth and not neglect His word.

 When we seek him and yearn to live in his ways we will never stray away from his commands. Let us commit to walk in his ways and not stray from his commands.

Amen! Hallelujah!!
