They just dont count; they can’t do for you like God can/does!
They won’t walk on water for you or move mountains! They can’t give you eternal life! They can’t turn water into wine! They have no everlasting power!
The only power that they have is the temporary power that You give them!
And it’s not even healing power. Why give access to someone or something and they can’t even heal you; if need be? They can’t take away the pain like God can? Just think for a second about all you get when you say Yes to God and No to them.
Do you fully understand what saying Yes to God means?
1. That you are accepting him in your Life as your Lord and Savior? Romans 10:8-13
2. That you believe that he sent his only Son into the world; that he would save us? John 3:16
3. That you recieve the Holy Spirit as your guide; in all things spiritual? John 20:22
4. That whatever and whomever is a bad influence in your life; you will leave it and them behind? Genesis 13
5. That you will take on a new creation as well as a renewed mind? 2 Corinthians 5:17/Romans 12:2
6. No more Sex before Marriage? 1 Corinthians 6:12-20
7. No more lustful behavior? 1John 2:16
8. Change the way you speak; talk? Proverbs 18:21
Now this is just the tip of the iceberg! There is so much more to this; like the 10 Commandments (Exodus 20:1-17) that are highlighted throughout the Bible. We are to follow those and abide by them. Being a changed person isnt your average walk in the park! You have to get a complete makeover! Shoot, you got chicks out here changing up they hair on the daily! Yaki, Kinky twist, Silky straight; and they don’t blink not once!
Can you say Yes to Our Heavenly Father and mean it? Live it? Breathe it? Why is it so easy to change your hair? Eye Color? Style of dress? The shape of your nose; etc. But you won’t change your life?
What is so bad about living right that makes some scared or flat out disgusted that they decide not to do it?
I know many people that I talk too don’t want to give up Sex! Sex y’all? Really, most of the time it only lasts a couple minutes; maybe 5 at the most! Lol and it don’t even be good all the time! You can get married and have all the sex you want with your husband or wife! But you know what it is?
For many people that’s a problem; they don’t want to be with just 1 person and marriage screws that up for them! 1 John 2:15-17
So you would rather sleep around, get a sexually transmitted disease (nowadays you can’t get rid of them) and possibly die cause you don’t want to give up Sex until marriage?
Okay, I guess that’s because we do have the choice between life and death; so I see how that can occur! But really you would give up something that’s everlasting for temporary pleasure with killer results?
Let’s face it; nobody can change overnight. Change takes time and determination. The individual that seeks change has to want it so bad that nothing else really matters! What if you’re one of the them that has said “I have had enough Sex to last a lifetime; I can wait until I’m married” or “I’m tired of these men/women playing games with my heart; I’m ready to settle down with that 1 person”; or “I’m tired of living like this! I want more for and in my life“! Will you say Yes? And mean it? What do you have to lose?
Prayer is also something that comes with a life with God; have you ever read or heard this prayer before?
“Our Father in heaven,
Hallowed be Your name.
Your kingdom come.
Your will be done
On earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts,
As we forgive our debtors.
And do not lead us into temptation,
But deliver us from the evil one.
For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen”. Matthew 6:9-13
I can only pray that you make the right choice for your life; my brother, my sister!
Until Next Time
