Oh Lord, I pray that people's hearts will no longer be hardened against You. I know that many people know of Your will for their lives, but have instead resisted it because of their sinful lifestyle. They have not chosen to forfeit the things that You hate and give their heart to You. This is very sad to see this, especially when many of these people proclaim to be Christians. I wish that they would live out what they believe in, but instead, it is only words to them and no action at all. Their faith is meaningless since Your light is not in their lives. Lord, I wish that people would know the urgency of following You. Our time is short in this life and if we don’t make time for You, then other things will become our idols. Surely, dancing around our calling in life is only making a mockery of what You would have for our lives. Every person in Your kingdom is called to be Your child for a reason, and what people are doing is not deserving of being Your child at all. Because these people have a lack of humility and do not desire to give up things that are holding them back, shame and regret will continue to plague their lives. This I know Lord, will cause a barrier between them and You, for the rest of their lives, lest they repent of their sins. A turning unto You in their confessions and following You is necessary for salvation. Thank You for teaching me this principal. I pray that every person that desires to go to heaven will understand this and do what is necessary to be saved. I love You Lord. Nothing is better than following You and obeying Your commands for my life. I love Your ways and can never get enough it. Thank You for leading me safely home. Amen.
Exodus 9:27-30 (KJV)
27 And Pharaoh sent, and called for Moses and Aaron, and said unto them, I have sinned this time: the Lord is righteous, and I and my people are wicked.
28 Intreat the Lord (for it is enough) that there be no more mighty thunderings and hail; and I will let you go, and ye shall stay no longer.
29 And Moses said unto him, As soon as I am gone out of the city, I will spread abroad my hands unto the Lord; and the thunder shall cease, neither shall there be any more hail; that thou mayest know how that the earth is the Lord’s.
30 But as for thee and thy servants, I know that ye will not yet fear the Lord God.
Choosing a sinful lifestyle also has health issues, pain, shame and regret attached to it. It is not worth fighting against God.
It is true that when we fight against God, then there are consequences to our actions. There will be pain and sorrow throughout that person’s life. Continue Reading
