At times I suspect many of us have moved around aimlessly without any purpose. It certainly has no exercise benefit due to how its carried out. If anything it allows the ‘wanderer’ a time to think and organize their thoughts.
Today zombie movies are all the rage. They personify an aimless lifestyle best. In Scripture Cain had this curse placed upon him for having killed his brother Abel. We are told in Genesis 4:12 and 14 that he would be a “fugitive and vagabond on earth”. Truth be told no matter what form it takes all wicked for their unrepentant sin will wander continually (Psalm 109:1-13) and sadly so will often be the fate of their families.
When sin takes over a life it digs in deep. It builds fences around people where it often seems impossible to find even a small gate by which you, through the power of God, can break through. That in fact is the only way to help someone end a futile life. To command the evil spirit leave (Acts 19:13) and by the power of God once again return to a life created in God’s image and WALK IN THE TRUE SPIRIT.
THOUGHT FOR TODAY: Wanderers are most often in spiritual warfare waiting for someone to show them God’s way.
DEVOTIONAL VERSE FOR TODAY: Genesis 2:14 “an aimless life is a curse”.
PRAYER FOR TODAY: Lord give me continual purpose.
QUESTIONS TO THINK ABOUT:
1. Have you ever had ‘wandering’ experiences?
2. Who are the wanderer’s in today’s world and why are they wandering?
3. How can you help someone break out of this vagabond lifestyle?
4. What is it to walk in the Spirit?
