Oh Lord, I pray that people would learn to love Your counsel and no longer disregard it. There is so much worth in giving an ear to what You have to say and then heed it. I have been lifted up each time that I resist temptation and instead give heed to Your warnings. In these moments have I been protected from the enemy and true peace has entered my life. It doesn't matter the type of things that the flesh desires, if it isn't appealing to You, oh God, then I also hate it. I have learned that following in Your light is far better than living in darkness. It is not worth a life of guilt and shame for temporary satisfaction, when I can have Your joy in my life that never ends. Your happiness is far better than being satisfied in the form of addictions or other wicked things. Therefore, Lord, protect me from every form of temptation. Help me see what is bad for evil and good for what is right. I know that while I seek You out in Your words in the Bible, and pray often, will my mind be focused on the truth of all things. This way I don’t have to wonder if what I am doing is right or wrong, for You have me by the hand and are leading me in the ways of righteousness. In all things Lord, I wish for every barrier to be broken. Tear down every wall. I don't want myself or any person or thing to come between You and Your great love in my life. You mean more to me than all things. Because I am Your child, Your warnings speak volumes to my life. It is an honor to heed these warnings and then do as You have directed me. If I have done anything recently or in the past that I have not repented of, know that I am sorry and need Your forgiveness. Take my life and allow Your good works to shine forth. I love You Lord. Amen.
Exodus 10:16-20 (KJV)
16 Then Pharaoh called for Moses and Aaron in haste; and he said, I have sinned against the Lord your God, and against you.
17 Now therefore forgive, I pray thee, my sin only this once, and intreat the Lord your God, that he may take away from me this death only.
18 And he went out from Pharaoh, and intreated the Lord.
19 And the Lord turned a mighty strong west wind, which took away the locusts, and cast them into the Red sea; there remained not one locust in all the coasts of Egypt.
20 But the Lord hardened Pharaoh’s heart, so that he would not let the children of Israel go.
Don't resist God any longer because of your sinful lifestyle, but confess your sins openly to Him that true change may occur.
Along with the story of the Pharaoh in the Bible, there are many other warnings from God now that speak to our lives. Continue Reading
