October 2023 – How to Keep Clear of the Quicksand

How to Keep Clear of the Quicksand

I’ve only ever seen quicksand in the movies, but it seems like no one ever walks into it on purpose.

Here are 6 invitations straight from Scripture that steer the woman or man of God away from spiritual quicksand and into the way of living God dreams for you.

Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, and to make you stand in the presence of His glory blameless with great joy, to the only God our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion and authority, before all time and now and forever.

Jude 24-25 (NASB1995)


It encourages me greatly to remember and consider that God who began a good work in me will finish what he started, as Philippians 1:6 says. It’s true for you, too.

And I love to realize that he’s not wearily chugging away at this, but that he’s joyfully loving us and he’s patient with us (because he knows what we’re made of). He’s kindly inviting us into the John 10:9-10 life that Jesus is the door to.
