Happy Friday Saints.
As we saw yesterday, the only one who can stop you from moving forward in 2022 is YOU.
Did you know that even though God wants what’s best for you, He won’t override your free will and force His own will upon you?
The Bible is filled with promises and things that God wants to give you, but if you don’t want them and you aren’t willing to observe His written Word – don’t expect to see any Biblical outcomes in the near future.
Some people think that God’s will for their lives will be fulfilled regardless of their own choices and actions. But the Bible doesn’t tell us that we will reap what God desires for us. Galatians 6:7 says that “A MAN REAPS WHAT HE SOWS.”
In other words, you’ll get out of this life what YOU put into it. Galatians 6:8 explains that “THOSE WHO LIVE ONLY TO SATISFY THEIR OWN SINFUL NATURE, WILL HARVEST DECAY AND DEATH FROM THAT SINFUL NATURE. BUT THOSE WHO LIVE TO PLEASE THE SPIRIT WILL HARVEST EVERLASTING LIFE FROM THE SPIRIT.”
Whether you reap a spiritual harvest or a sinful harvest in 2022 is entirely up to YOU. If you live from your heart and follow the Spirit, you’ll be blessed. But if you live from your flesh (your lower, sinful nature) things will decay and get worse for you.
A Spirit-led life is possible. But as we saw yesterday, you have to BELIEVE that it is. You have to believe that you can WALK IN THE SPIRIT and in so doing, not gratify the desires of the flesh.
Tomorrow is the first day of 2022. It’s a great time to throw off the shackles of the past and let nothing stop you from living all-out for God.
Have a great weekend Saints. Wishing you and your loved ones a BLESSED NEW YEAR. Lots’a love, Warren
