O Lord, I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps.
Isn't it peculiar that the scripture would describe "in himself" as a place. The scriptures are informing us that the way of man is not in himself, because the statement is contrary to popular belief. However, let us think about this concept. "In himself," speaks concerning the heart/mind of man; the place where dreams, visions, and goals are devised. The imagination is extensively creative, and we use it to outline what we want our lives to be and what we want it to look like. However, even with that design, apparently our "way" will be according to something else.
The truth is, the path of our feet are guided by either the Light of God or the darkness of the devil. In fact, one of the two is the inspiration concerning our devised plan.
Romans 7:25 - I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.
The mind is a place from which we serve. It is the place we receive and obey instruction. What type of thoughts do you entertain, and follow through on? Whether we use the to serve the Lord or the devil, we will serve one of the two. Judge, what is your mind given to? Is it given to the will of God or to the pursuit of this world? If the latter, you are on a path design by the devil. Allow God to have His way in you today.
