Religion says to walk this way and it is the only way you can walk it. You don’t need to have faith, but to just submit to what the leaders say – walk blindly, trusting that what they are saying is God’s will.
But Jesus says follow Me by faith. Each trial is different. That is why we must trust Him and seek His face and know His voice.
Jesus is full of grace and truth and we must seek Him to have the perfect balance. If you walk in all grace without truth, then you can cross over believing that you have the license to sin.
And if you have all truth without grace, then you can cross over into legalism and bondage falling away from the grace of God.
Yes LORD, everything we do we must follow you and every situation is different. We must keep our eyes on You and not on man because what one may have the freedom to do another might not.
Help us to love one another and allow the freedom for others to grow in Your love, and help us to trust You with your grace that You would not allow us to fall. You hold us by our hand and lead us in Your truth.
Yes, this is the time to examine our hearts to make sure the basics of our faith are correct and that we haven’t fallen into any misconceptions of the Word of God. Even what we might have been taught and we have taken as truth we must be open and teachable whether what we have learned is truly of Him.
We must have our foundations sure!

Yolanda Ballard of At The Father’s Feet website, shares with you, the body of Christ, the words she’s received quietly sitting at the Father’s feet. I believe Jesus set the example for us to follow. Whenever He could He would come apart from the busyness of the world so that He could quiet Himself before the Father, for that is where He received direction and strength to carry out His will.
