When should I evaluate my life to see if I am walking in the way God would have me to walk?
The answer is “Today”. Every day that is called today. Even every moment of today.
The writer of Hebrews talks about this very fact in chapters 3 and 4. He quotes from Psalms 95 and says that David is the one who wrote that Psalm.
7 For he is our God, and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. Today, if you hear his voice, 8 do not harden your hearts, as at Meribah, as on the day at Massah in the wilderness, (Psalms 95:7-8 ESV)
John gives us the promise from Jesus, If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. (1 John 1:9 ESV)
There is no limitation given to the number of times Jesus will forgive. Jesus even expressed to Peter that we are to forgive every time an individual who sins against us repents. Does he not do the same toward us?
Today, this very moment, is the time for personal evaluation. It is the time to listen to what God wants me to do and to do it. Today is the time to turn away from my selfish, self-centered thoughts and intentions and listen to how God would have me to be and to do his will.
Today is the day to stop my rebellion and renew my faithfulness to God’s way and His will. Every day that is called today is that day.
