Topic: Hebrews 12:13
Hebrews 12:13 (AMP) And cut through and make firm and plain and smooth, straight paths for your feet [yes, make them safe and upright and happy paths that go in the right direction], so that the lame and halting [limbs] may not be put out of joint, but rather may be cured.
This scripture directs us to remove the obsticles from our 'walk/conduct of life' that causes us to 'vear off the right/straight path' and could cause us to 'limp' and become weak and spiritless. Having a 'rutted' path could cause us to 'trip up' and make us 'lame'. If we become 'lame' then it is harder to walk straight...we may 'favor' that leg and not be able to 'turn' from 'sin and error'. This would be because we have formed a 'habit' or a 'rutted course' that is a fixed routine in our life's course. We need to 'turn from that habit/fixed course, in order to get out of that 'rut' before we become 'lame'...and are unable to 'turn' because our 'rutter is broken'.
When I am 'stuck in a rut', I get bored. When I have a same routine, I get bored and it causes me to think and act more desperate. This causes me to 'vear off the course' that God has given me. We are not to be 'rituolistic', doing things over and over in order to 'please God'. This is actually a 'habit' and not a good one. Life is full of change, and we have to change to be renewed. We are to get out of that 'rut' and watch out for obsticles that can cause us to trip up in our walk of life. We are to fill in those 'ruts' and make the path straight, so as not to come into sin and temptations. The 'ruts of life' can cause our 'rutters' to be broken.
Father, You know me better than anyone! You know that I get stuck in the 'ruts of life'...causing me to be bored. I know that You set me here to help me crave change. I do, Father, crave the adventures You have for me. Keep me OUT OF THAT RUT, and without a LIMP! Heal my 'rutter', Father, as to keep me going on Your straight path of life!
