WHAT LIFE ARE YOU LIVING.?
“ it is written, “You shall be holy, for I am holy.”- 1 Peter 1:16
In this day and age where “truth is fallen in the street” -Isaiah 59:14 God is looking for courageous and distinguished Christians. So many times people live their lives based on opinions. “If so and so says it’s okay then it must be okay.?”, “if it looks good it must be okay.?”, “it it feels good it must be okay.?”, “I’m following my heart so it must be okay.?”, but I have to ask you something is their opinion or your own higher than God’s.?
Numbers 23:19 says, “God is not a man, so he does not lie.”
Stop following your heart and stop placing a very high value on opinions, your own desires, emotions. God’s Word says “He who trusts in his own heart is a fool” -Proverbs 28:26 and “The heart is deceitful above all things”-Jeremiah 17:9 We cannot become the bondservants of Christ if we are controlled by mans opinions, our feelings, or by our fleshly desires.
STOP allowing the world's value system to have control in your life. Stop looking to MAN for your answers and Rely on the LORD, HIS OPINION, and HIS TRUTHS! His Word says we are to live in a manner that is distinct from the world. If you choose to live and give place to the world by acting like the world guess what you will receive the results that ungodly living anticipates.
DO NOT or should I say TURN AWAY and stop conducting your life as the world does! Stop participating in all THE questionable activities. STOP Being Cynical! When we let our feelings and our understanding lead the way, we end up making a lot of unwise, ungodly, self-focused decisions—and making a mess of our lives. That in turn can affect others. God gave me this today so I will share it with you now. “You can only reproduce what you are... So pursue Christlikeness.”
If you continue on the path you are on you will become prone to “picking and choosing” your truth—receiving the things that make you feel good, and rejecting the things that don’t. When we accept only the parts of God’s truth that appeal to us personally, and dismiss all the rest, we cannot receive the “Whole Counsel of God” -Acts 20:27 and then we end up with a distorted “truth” of our own making.
We are supposed to live DISTINCTLY from the world as God's people! What is the definition of distinctly.? The dictionary says it like this- in a way that is readily distinguishable by the senses; Clearly.
If you are carrying on like the worldly do... How are you being distinguishable.? How are you being different.? When you choose to allow evil to develop in your heart it will result in disillusionment and bring unnecessary troubles to your life.
Stop leaning on your own understanding and take Delight in God's Word and instead of leading your way, following your heart, and doing what feels right to you...Let God's Scriptures be your guide in life. Don’t reject Jesus.
The Life you live Now should be under the control of God’s Spirit and subservient to His timeless, unchanging Truth.
