"Walk in the Spirit" (Galatians 5:16).
The text does not say "fly in the Spirit" or "run in the Spirit." It doesn't even say "jog in the Spirit." It says to walk.
What is walking? It's a series of small steps in the same direction over a long period of time. Walking isn't as exciting as running, but it will get you from where you are to where you need to be.
That’s why walking is the perfect picture of the Christian life. It describes the ordinary action of ordinary people in their ordinary routine. Just walk, walk, and keep on walking, and you will end up exactly where you need to be.
Do not despair about your spiritual progress. Some days we "fly" and some days we "run," but most days we walk. Walking days are good days if we are walking with God.
Don't give up.
Just keep on walking.
God's plan works.
If we take small steps in the right direction, the Lord will see to it that we end up in the right place.
