Walk With Great Care

See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is. {Ephesians 5:15-17}

To live “circumspectly” a term we might not use too often, means ” accurately or precisely with great care”. Biblically, a “fool” is not so named because of a limited intellectual understanding, but because of their unbelief of God’s Word, and it’s consequences from not obeying the Word of God {Psalm 14:1}. This person lives apart from God and against God’s law {Proverbs 1:7} and can’t comprehend the truth or their true heart condition {Romans 1:22-23}.

So may ask ourselves why is time so important to God? God knows what a fixed measure of time that is alloted to us as one’s very own lifetime; We are to make the most of it as believer’s in fulfilling God’s purposes using every opportunity to witness the grace and glory of a Father’s love to the inhabitants of the earth. Understanding God’s will for us is not hidden, nor are we ever to think that it is beyond our reach. We will find the true meaning of life, as well as what purpose I have been created for, when I open the pages of Scripture, and read God’s Word, the Bible. His Word is spiritual wisdom, and brings light into dark places of my heart. Truth about God, and His Son Jesus Christ, and the plan of salvation which is the true meaning of life.

Dear Christian saint, let us walk circumspectly, with wisdom knowing how short our time is on this earth. Let us live for the kingdom and glory of God our Father. There is no other life that can be more rewarding, and as we look around us, never more needed!

May the Lord bless your walk!
