DEPART FROM EVIL? HOW CAN I DO THAT WHEN I ENJOY IT?

Prov. 3:7 “Fear the Lord and depart from evil.”

This verse is simple, but also difficult.

Human understanding would have us believe the best way to depart from evil is to do just that, and there are times when it works fine.

But sometimes we have not the strength to resist. Sometimes we are too weak. What then?

The answer for the difficult times is Spiritual Exercise.

Yes, when we need extra power, we can get it from God. Much prayer might be needed to change our desires.

After all, if I don’t want to steal your car, then I won’t do it. Right?

I praise God for giving us the power we need when we ask for it.

Please add your comments to this thought at the bottom of this post so others can be blessed through your words also.

You and I can benefit much from studying the life of Jesus. It will give us the same power from the Father that He received. Power that will slowly change our desires to be more pure. Power that will slowly help us to dislike sinful things. When our desires and “likes” change we can be used by God as a sweet aroma to help others.

Salvation is a one-to-one affair. Family or church worship isn’t enough to form and grow a relationship with God.

So, join me and spend time with God. Spiritual Exercises are fun, You’ll love it!

If Jesus spent all night in prayer then why do we think we need so little?

Jesus would arise early in the morning and go outside and find a place of seclusion to pray. He spent time with the Father and received strength. It allowed Him to resist temptation. It allowed Him to succeed in His mission.
