To continually drink wine and other strong alcoholic drinks is not the will of God. To follow after these things is wrong.
Isaiah 5:22-24 (KJV)
22 Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink:
23 Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!
24 Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the law of the Lord of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.
Isaiah 5:11,12 (KJV)
11 Woe unto them that rise up early in the morning, that they may follow strong drink; that continue until night, till wine inflame them!
12 And the harp, and the viol, the tabret, and pipe, and wine, are in their feasts: but they regard not the work of the Lord, neither consider the operation of his hands.
Lord God, thank You for helping me stay far away alcohol. I have seen alcohol kill marriages and tear families apart and I am so happy that You have helped me steer clear from this. However, I know that many people in this world are caught up in drinking. Even so-called Christians are in this mess. My heart breaks for these people and I pray that they will turn from their sins and repent today. I know that Your mercy is for those that allow You to change their lives. However, I also know that Your wrath is real and these people that follow in their sins till death will be smitten. With Your presence in my life I know that following Your will is the most important thing ever. It is wicked to live by our wants and desires and leave You out of the picture. Calling evil good is never good and this almost destroyed my life, as You know God. If I had not called Your Name in prayer those many years ago, my life would be in shambles and I'd probably be dead and suffering in hell right now. I know that Your mercy endures forever but I also know that Your judgements are for real. Thank You for leading me out of a life of sin and into Your love. Thank You for Your forgiveness. I am so grateful to be on Your path and straightway to heaven. I want to be with You Lord. You are my light and my strength. Take my life and do as You please. I love You more. Amen.
