We’re all looking for a quick fix, but God is after lasting change. He leads us to a lifestyle of Christianity.
Lord, I desire to become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ. Then I will no longer be an infant, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of men in their deceitful scheming. Instead, teach me to speak the truth in love, growing up into Him who is the head, that is, Christ (Eph. 4:13-15).
Enable me to stand firm, with the belt of truth buckled around my waist and with the breastplate of righteousness in place (Eph. 6:14). Help me to understand that without the girding of truth, I am defenseless against the devil. Truth is my main defense against the father of lies.
