Choose God’s Best for You
(Proverbs Chapter 5)
“..pay attention to my wisdom; listen carefully to my wise counsel. Then you will show discernment, and your lips will express what you’ve learned.” Proverbs 5:1,2
Again we are told to stay wise to the things of God. Solomon cautions all young men and woman, as his children, to abstain from fleshly lusts. He knows that there is a danger. If we receive, embrace, and apply this wisdom, we will be able to maintain discretion and preserve knowledge in our lips. You are where you are today because of the decisions you have made in the past and where you wind up in the future has a great deal to do with what you decide today.
The Lord knows that we need discretion operating in our lives on a daily basis, because the attacks from the enemy are endless. The enemy is a deceiver, he is a conniver, and he will do everything he can to get you to go down the wrong path, and to stray from God’s best for you. Don’t fall for the smooth, sweet, and flattering words, from an immoral woman (or man for that matter)! They might paint a picture of sensually enticing bliss, tempting you is exactly their aim, telling you what you want to hear. What they say may SEEM like it will turn out for your good, BUT you and I both know that sin leads to death, and more especially, sexual sin is tremendously dangerous! It is utterly dangerous and extremely destructive and this is exactly why the enemy uses it so much.
Paul told us not to be ignorant (2nd Cor 2:11) of the devil’s schemes, tricks or ways. The enemy will always seek to paint a rosy picture of sin. He will make every attempt to lure you from God’s best for you.
Walk closely with God! Be led by the Spirit! Remain consistent in prayer! Avoid the pitfalls of the enemy!
Use the power of the Holy Spirit to remain consistent on your pursuit of God’s best for you. Protect your soul from the wrong influences, be careful not to succumb to the craftiness of the enemy. He will do all he can to get you back on deception road!
Don’t allow sweet words to entice you to go backwards! You don’t need any more encounters with sin in your life to realize that sin leads to a never-ending cycle of your falling into a hole.
Think about it...How many times has sin caused you to fall into a hole.?
I heard a friend once say, “If you always do what you always did, you’ll always get what you always got.”
The choice is yours. Don’t ignore God’s warning!
“If you do, you will lose your honor and will lose to merciless people all you have achieved.” - Proverbs 5:9
Don’t make a choice because it looks like a good choice.
Make A GOD choice!
