A “Guardrail” is a personal standard or behavior that becomes a matter of conscience.
Title: Avoiding Spiritual Drift
Scripture: Daniel 1:1-21
It is the natural flow of life to drift.
Wherever in my life I am not living intentionally, the natural result is entrophy.
Regardless of whether or not I have guardrails in my life, the tension I experience is not going away.
Wherever I decide to put on the brakes, that will be my point of tension.
Compromise doesn’t erase the tension, it only weakens my resolve.
Daniel 1:8 says that Daniel resolved.
The “Now God” factor is that God will use the guardrails I established in my life not only to protect me, but to direct me.
The defining moments in life are often the moments when we resolve in our heart to establish a guardrail and draw a line in the sand.
Proverbs 11:3 the integrity of the upright guides them.
