One of the nastiest parts about sin is that it is like “fire”, it never says “enough”. When temptation is courting its target, it portrays the actions we take as being harmless. Once we start acting on the temptation we justify our actions. The problem is, sin will burn up everything in its target life and then spread to his or her family and then on down the generations. The day David acted on his lust it had immediate ramifications. For David’s ancestry beginning with Solomon, foreign wives were introduced to the family which opened the pathway for the idols of the nations they brought into the kingdom. Even after the exile, the nation had to find out who they were and which God they would serve them what their language was. In the present day, we too are impacted by the choices of our parents and subsequently our choices. I encourage you today to take a careful look at what you are doing and seek Council from the Lord. If we listen to our counsel, we will be misled because they can always justify what we are doing and approve of it.
Verses: Psalms 129, Lamentations 2, Jeremiah 21
Famous quote: “This miry slough is a place that can’t be repaired. It is a low-lying place where the scum and filth that come with the conviction of sin drain and collect as the traveling sinner becomes aware of his lost condition. It is the fears, doubts, and discouraging apprehensions about oneself that arise in his soul.” – John Bunyan
your greatest desire for your servants is that they may be free. Walking in righteousness is not a penalty it is a gift. Your word commands us and admonishes us to carefully consider our choices. You gave us autonomy so that we may make our own choices unfortunately, it is a dual-edged blade. Sin opens a hole in our life that fills with cancer, which spreads to the healthy tissues. Help me today to walk in the light of your word and have no room for temptation. I pray for my family Lord that you watch over them and keep them safe in your love. Thank you for each and every one of them. I pray that you will continue to shake the world and its elected leaders so that they may be silenced before you. I pray for the military, law enforcement, and EMT communities that you will be with every one of them and bring them safely home. I pray over our politicians that you will continue to shake them to their core with the message of the Ephod so that they fully understand whom they serve. I pray for the city of Stacy, the state of Minnesota, and the USA may your Spirit fall fresh upon us. I pray for the truckers who carry supplies to our communities. I thank you for healing our land with rain that refreshes the land and the storms that shake the heart of mankind. I pray for those who need a special touch from you today. Finally, I pray that my words will always be an encouragement to all who read these words in Jesus’ name I pray. May your peace be upon my family, city, state, nation, and world. Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O LORD, my rock and my redeemer (Psalms 19:14).
