Save Yourself!!!????

God is waiting to show you the way.

God is waiting to show you the way.

Isaiah 50: 10, 11 (NLT) 10 Who among you fears the Lord and obeys his servant?
If you are walking in darkness, without a ray of light,
trust in the Lord and rely on your God.
11 But watch out, you who live in your own light and warm yourselves by your own fires.
This is the reward you will receive from me: You will soon fall down in great torment.

If you have ever tried self-help programs, you know how frustrating that can be. You know when we say things like “I am going to do better”, “I am going to lose weight”, “I am going to quit smoking”, “I am going to quit watching pornography”, “I am going to become a better person”, “I am, I am……” And we try, we try really hard. And we try again, but those desires are still there.
As we are told in James 3:2 (NLT) 2. Indeed, we all make many mistakes. For if we could control our tongues, we would be perfect and could also control ourselves in every other way.
Our fleshly desires always win out until we admit that we can’t and only God can do it for us. The problem is the heart and only God can change that. Jesus came to set the captive free, ask Him and He will do that for you right now.

One thought on “Save Yourself!!!????

  1. David knew so well the wickedness of the heart — but in his repentance and acceptance of God’s forgiveness, he prayed, “Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me…Restore to me the joy of Your salvation, and uphold me by Your generous Spirit. THEN I will teach transgressors Your ways, and sinners shall be converted to You.” Psalm 51:10-13. We cannot change the heart, the source of all our problems of self and sin — but praise God, HE CAN! Amen and Amen! And because of where we have been, we have a deeper compassion and mercy toward those who fall into the same traps. Thank you for the devotions — they are a blessing.
