A W Tozer said  our life is compared many times as living in a rut, a life that is stuck in some form of monotonous humdrum of going through the same routine day after day. Like were stuck to a daily ritual and unable to change our ways. It's just existing, and not having any goals or plans of changes made in our lives. This is a miserable life to live in the secular realm, let alone in the Spiritual. You see people daily go through the eat, drink and be merry routine the Bible says most will live like and you wonder if they don't tire of living that way. Work doesn't count because that is part of the curse," by the sweat of your brow" and there is no pleasure in that, but in  the rest they find a limited enjoyment, the eating drinking and the merry stands for pleasures for a season. Guess that would involve watching some screen of entertainment each night before they retire to sleep and do it all over again the next day. Yet the Christian ought not make their life a boring humdrum sort of rut that never sees the wonders of God's grace and blessings in life. Each new day gives an opportunity to walk closer and with renewed experiences of light from His Word and challenges to grow in His grace.

What a joy to have the Word opened to your understanding and learn how to apply it to your life giving overcoming power to some area you were  uncertain about or weak in. It's supposed to be a walk that grows brighter each day, not boring and dull, no improvement, no new victories. I'm pressing on the upward way, (the song writer wrote) new heights I'm gaining every day, is the way it ought to be. If your spiritual life is like living in a no change rut, seek the Lord to stir your soul to new challenges, set your goals to read and pray more and try to reach the lost. Nothing  revives the soul like finding yourself being used by God to help the weak, witness to the lost and just begin to worship your God in spirit and truth. Life is so short and we ought to redeem the little time we have to live it to the best of our ability for the Lord. Keep looking up, not down, and there is much work for the Lord that you can do and feel His blessing on your life.
