Do you stand out to God?
“And the Lord said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them. But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.” Genesis 6:7-8 KJV https://www.bible.com/1/gen.6.7-8.kjv
Are you a voice of reason in the midst of a perverse world?...... “That’s how it’s done”, “If you can’t beat them then join them”, “I can’t be the odd one out”... The many excuses we often give to justify living a life of sin or blending in into sin and injustice around us. But remember... “For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him “ (2 Chron. 16:9a). Living a right life is, at best, self-preservation because the standards of the Lord have not changed. Noah and his household were saved from the destruction of the earth in the Bible reading today because God found him perfect in the midst of so much evil. In addition, you may be helping someone else and building the community of ‘right living’. There maybe someone who wants to do the right thing but just needs another example that it is indeed possible. Imagine if God had found up to 10 faithfuls in Sodom and Gomorrah, He would not have destroyed them per the negotiation with Abraham (Genesis 18:32)... The benefits go on and on.. So before you decide to blend in today’s or continue in those acts of perverseness because “there are no options”, remember that God has made Grace available to live right. Search his word and ask the Holy Spirit to help you. Keep the faith and keep the fire burning. Be the voice of reason.... Halleluyah
Prayer: Dear God, thank you for your grace that you have made to abound towards me. Help me to live according to your will in Jesus name 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾
