In our world today, there is a surge in the number of voices advocating individualism and self-sufficiency. These encourage us to follow our own desires and pursue whatever seems right in our own eyes. The focus of motivation has gradually shifted from what pleases God, to what suits an individual.
To do what is right in your own eyes is to do what you like when you like, disregarding the instructions of God. It is to do according as you have proposed in your heart without consideration for the will of God. However, in our opening text today, we are cautioned not to do whatever seems right in our own eyes, but to obey the commandments and statutes of God.
As believers, we are called to live according to God’s standards rather than our own. This will require making difficult choices and taking a stand against the prevailing or popular opinion, demonstrating our commitment to honour God above all else. This is what guarantees God’s blessing on your life, home, business etc.
The good news is that the Lord Himself has made provision by His Spirit, working in us the desire to do His Word (Phil. 2:13). Therefore, as you take a stand for the truth of God’s Word, His Spirit will be on hand to strengthen you to do His will without compromise.
