Dailies ~In His Word
August 7, 2019

 And therefore we also having so great a cloud of witnesses over our head, laying aside every weight and sin which surrounds us, let us run by patience to the fight proposed to us: looking on Jesus, the author and finisher of faith, who having joy set before him, endured the cross, despising the shame, and now sitteth on the right hand of the throne of God. For think diligently upon him that endured such opposition from sinners against himself; that you be not wearied, fainting in your minds. For you have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin:  And you have forgotten the consolation, which speaketh to you, as unto children, saying: My son, neglect not the discipline of the Lord; neither be thou wearied whilst thou art rebuked by him.  For whom the Lord loves, he chastises; and he scourges every son whom he receives. Persevere under discipline. God dealeth with you as with his sons; for what son is there, whom the father doth not correct?     Hebrews 12 1-7
We all have a time in our lives when something tempts us to do the wrong thing. Maybe it is eating that huge burger and fries when we are on a strict diet, or spending money when we are already in debt on frivolous things. Whatever it is that draws us toward the wrong thing is pulling us away from the right, or Godly things in our lives.
If we know it is wrong to do and we do it then it is sin to us. No matter what it is the best plan?
We just need to get rid of the things that draw us away from God. If we do, or rather when we do, God will bless us for our obedience! If we try to ignore it without God’s help, we will probably fail. If we listen to God and do not ignore Him, we know we cannot ignore God, right?  Oh sure we can try, but He will be there wherever we are! How foolish it is of us to even think we could ignore God! God who is all knowing and all seeing! Ha! Silly self! Not to mention if God is for us no thing can stand against us, why would we want to go against His will for us?
If we are right with God we will know the truth and it will truly set us free. Being focused on God, the Way will be clear, the Truth will be in front of us and He will light the way!
Do not give up trying to do the right thing, God is for you and no one can stand against you. Just because God stops you does not mean He does not know your heart, keep in contact with Him, and it will go well.

Heavenly Father, help us to follow Your path every day and be obedient to You in all we do, not just the going to church stuff but living our lives as well. In Jesus’ name, amen.
