There is a way that seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death. Proverbs 14:12 NKJV
When I was a teenager people would say, “If it feels good do it.” People all over the world are doing what feels good today.
I am going to make a confession. I hope you do not think less of me. If so you should look in the mirror. We are all tempted by sin in many ways.
Sometimes I feel like doing things I should not do. You can name the sin. I have more than likely felt like doing it at one time or another. I have committed some of those sins. It seemed right at the time.
God knows everything. The Lord knows your future. He knows your past. Jesus knows how you feel when you are tempted to sin.
When God tells us not to do something it is not because He is trying to assert His authority over us. The Lord has nothing to prove. When God tells us not to engage in immorality it is because He knows how harmful it really is.
God is not a cosmic party pooper. He is not trying to keep us from enjoying ourselves. The Lord wants us to enjoy our lives. Jesus wants us to have fun. Jesus wants to bless us. Jesus wants us to prosper in every way!
Jesus knows that we are tempted in many ways. Jesus knows we are tempted often. God wants us to know that temptation is not sin. Giving in to our fleshly desires is!
God divided time into days so each could be a new beginning for us. Jesus has already made a way of escape for you if you have fallen into the trap of thinking if it feels good you should do it.
God created us to live in a loving relationship with Him. We do not have to allow anything to come between us. If we trust Jesus instead of our feelings and emotions, we will be blessed beyond measure today and throughout eternity!
We can choose to live in a loving relationship with our God today! There is a way that seems right to a man. It leads to eternal separation from God. Obedience to the Lord leads to blessing and prosperity!
Obedience to God is not legalism. It is wisdom. Sin may be enjoyable for a season. It always leads to heartache and destruction!
Be a person of wisdom and prudence. Enjoy the amazing blessing of Almighty God in this life. Live with the Lord in blessed perfection throughout eternity!
Obedience is better than sacrifice. Wisdom is the greatest of virtues. Jesus freely gives it to those who ask for it. Ask Jesus for wisdom today!
