Good day beautiful people
I hope that you and your family members are well? Today’s post is going to be extremely short but irrespective of how brief the read will be, I pray that today’s word of encouragement will be a blessing to you. So, in life the so called ‘small’ decisions which we make can actually make a HUGE difference and bring about drastic change, which is why it’s extremely important to pray to God before taking action, or starting a project. We may view carrying out a minor task to be insignificant or harmless, yet the consequences can be very devastating.
Proverbs 3:5-6 ~ “Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.”
Proverbs 14:12 ~ There is a path before each person that seems right, but it ends in death.
A major point which I desire to bring to our attention is the importance of being able to discern a godly opportunity, from an ungodly opportunity (an event orchestrated by satan)! Anything which causes you to go AGAINST the will of God for your life should NOT be seen as a golden moment, but should be identified as a TRAP. For example God will not encourage someone to bring harm to another human through stealing, or telling someone to have an affair. God will never justify sin under any circumstances. If a so called opportunity leads you to go against God’s word (the bible) then this is NOT an opportunity from God!
James 1:13 ~ And remember, when you are being tempted, do not say, “God is tempting me.” God is never tempted to do wrong, and he never tempts anyone else.
We have a biblical example of this when reading through the book of 1 Samuel, David refused to kill Saul even though Saul attempted to murder him on several occasions. David’s men assumed that finding Saul at his weak point was the perfect chance for David to seek revenge, yet I believe that David recalled God’s commandment which states ‘Thou shall not kill’.
1 Samuel 26:1-9 ~ “Now some men from Ziph came to Saul at Gibeah to tell him, “David is hiding on the hill of Hakilah, which overlooks Jeshimon.” So Saul took 3,000 of Israel’s elite troops and went to hunt him down in the wilderness of Ziph. Saul camped along the road beside the hill of Hakilah, near Jeshimon, where David was hiding. When David learned that Saul had come after him into the wilderness, he sent out spies to verify the report of Saul’s arrival. David slipped over to Saul’s camp one night to look around. Saul and Abner son of Ner, the commander of his army, were sleeping inside a ring formed by the slumbering warriors. “Who will volunteer to go in there with me?” David asked Ahimelech the Hittite and Abishai son of Zeruiah, Joab’s brother. “I’ll go with you,” Abishai replied. So David and Abishai went right into Saul’s camp and found him asleep, with his spear stuck in the ground beside his head. Abner and the soldiers were lying asleep around him. “God has surely handed your enemy over to you this time!” Abishai whispered to David. “Let me pin him to the ground with one thrust of the spear; I won’t need to strike twice!” “No!” David said. “Don’t kill him. For who can remain innocent after attacking the Lord’s anointed one?”
So, there you have it, I look forward to blogging a bit more over the next couple of days. I hope and pray that you’re all doing well, and may God’s peace rest upon your hearts and homes, Amen.
