I thank God daily for my freedom to LIVE!! JESUS died on the cross for my SINS and today I am FORGIVEN. Grateful for His GRACE and MERCY.
If this does not fuel the soul...you are dead inside.
I've learned that we can walk around and enjoy the freedom that has been handed down, but we do not embrace it as the LOVE that God gave. We exist in this blessing of having a life and not fully living it.
When we fall into that pit of trouble .. the first thing we say is "Oh God!" Yes, we can be users when we want to be. Why call his name when you don't even praise Him daily. Oh yes, because you know He will forgive, might even help you out once again.
For all users:
Like the nations the LORD destroyed before you, so you will be destroyed for not obeying the LORD your God." Deut 8:19,20
Re-think your actions and this time when you ask God to forgive you, be committed to keeping your promise because He will keep his.
