ME GIVE UP THIS SIN
When sin enticed me as a young Christian, I would flee from the
Lord. I feared turning to Him lest He make me give up my sin which
I loved so much.
Then God began teaching me that I should never fear what He
would say because He always has good news for me. When I turned
back to Him, He got rid of my sin, but it was never with a word
which brought disappointment. God's words always bring more
freedom, more joy, more life.
Do You Fear God's Word To You?
Simply seeing the truth about God and His will causes us to run
to Him rather than away from Him. We rebel from God's will only
when we believe the lie that something good exists for us apart
from God's will. Romans 2:4 says, "It is the kindness of God that
leads you to repentance." Those who believe lies about God's
character and who thus fail to see the truth about His kindness
Meditating on the following facts has helped me to trust Him
and to desire to hear what He wants to say to me.
* God's will for me is the best thing
this universe can contain.
* Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from
the Father... (James 1:17)
* God is more ambitious for my happiness
than I am.
* God's dreams and plans for my life make my
dreams and plans look like garbage.
