Job 24:2 (NIV) Men move boundary stones.

Boundaries are good to have in your life, healthy boundaries in relationships and in your personal life are ones which keep you safe. Also boundaries of holiness, justice and righteousness are boundaries which you do not want to cross because you do not want compromise your integrity or your personal faith in God.

The Bible says in Proverbs 9:18 (DARBY) where there is no vision the people cast off restraint; but happy is he that keepeth the law. When people cast off restraint they no longer have boundaries. It then develops into a culture of anything goes, tumbling downward towards a pity of destruction. Then the law and boundaries that once kept your heart pure and your path clear before the lord are put aside. Is it then any wonder that so many people are lost in their world without restraint and boundaries? The Bible says in Job 24:2 (NIV) Men have moved boundary stones, to suit themselves rather than serve God.

But thank God that there are still real men of God will stand up, and not allow the boundary stones over them to be moved. They will not compromise the ancient paths of the Lord, but the will walk in the way of righteousness.

When Minister Joe Wright was asked to open the new session of the Kansas Senate on the 20th of August 2004, everyone was expecting the usual generalities, but this is what they heard:                                                                                                                                                             “Heavenly Father, we come before You today to ask Your forgiveness and seek Your direction and guidance. We know Your Word says, “Woe to those who call evil good,” but that’s exactly what we have done. We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and invented our values. We confess that; we have ridiculed the absolute truth of Your Word and called it ‘pluralism’; We have worshipped other gods and called it ‘multiculturalism’; We have endorsed perversion and called it ‘an alternative lifestyle’; We have exploited the poor and called it ‘the lottery’; We have neglected the needy and called it ‘self preservation’; We have rewarded laziness and called it ‘welfare’; We have killed our unborn and called it ‘choice’; We have shot abortionists and called it ‘justifiable’; We have neglected to disciple our children and called it ‘building self-esteem’; We have abused power and called it ‘political savvy’; We have coveted our neighbor’s possessions and called it ‘ambition’; We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography and called it ‘freedom of expression’; We have ridiculed the time-honored values of our forefathers and called it ‘enlightenment’. Search us `O` God, and know our hearts today; try us and see if there be some wicked way in us; cleanse us from our every sin and set us free”.

My friend, some of us have moved Godly boundary stones in our spiritual lives and compromised with the world, it is time to reset those Godly boundaries. The Bibles says in Jeremiah 6:16 (DARBY) Thus saith Jehovah: Stand in the ways and see, and ask for the ancient path, which is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls.

God bless you my friend, Matthew.
