“Run to God! Run from evil! Your body will glow with health, your very bones will vibrate with life! Honor God with everything you own; give him the first and the best.” (Proverbs 3: 6-9, The Message Bible)
What an energized call to action and promise of reward! What would it feel like to run to God and away from evil? How do we do that?
Well, certainly the first thing we do is to recognize that the call is legitimate and so is the prize. And then we add to that the assurance that we are so very capable of doing all this—of running forward toward good, rightness, peace, and love. And likewise, we are fully able to give God our very best, as the second part of this passage requires.
For isn’t trusting and honoring God and His reality and harmony and Life truly giving our all to Him? It is dedicating our whole being and mind and life to good. It is giving up that egotistical sense of individual power and control. It is becoming conscious that the material sense of things is not Truth and, therefore, we can’t base our lives around it and its presentations.
Run to God! Leave behind all the excuses. To run away from evil—anger, upset, fear, hatred, resentment, self-justification, selfishness—is to sacrifice the weights that hold us back and keep us down. Our freedom is calling us, and accepting it eagerly, we will feel it more fully—glowing with health and vibrating with glorious Life!
