WE KNOW WHAT'S RIGHT


If we know the speed limit is 40 mph and we are in a hurry
and drive 45 mph, we are guilty of breaking the law. If we
know there is no fishing in a particular area of a lake and we
ignore the sign and fish there anyway, we are trespassing.
If we know how God wants us to live and walk and we don't
do it, we are Sinning against God.


Heavenly Father, we know that we are responsible for the
way we live knowing your Word for our lives. We pray for
awareness, courage, and strength to do what we know
you would have us to do, so that we may glorify your name.
In Jesus' name.


Read James4:17


"Anyone, then, who knows the good he ought to do and doesn't
do it, sins." (NIV)


"Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to
him it is sin." (KJV)

I pray that I may see my sins and correct them because the last thing I want is to be out of God's grace.

It is so easy to justify both speeding and sinning...May the God of heaven in his grace and mercy empower us with the Spirit so that we will heed when we are convicted and act when we He calls us. Thanks for the thought provoking post. Patty

Satan is attacking my family this week! My sn Jeremy just called us. He is a pizza delivery guy and he is having car problems. Unfortunately, we are too. So therefore we have no car to lend to him. Please pray.

Your post today is so truthful. I am just sad and I can hardly comment here.

Blessings to you for your beautiful post and scriptures. I need that comfort.

Blessings

Anne
