Justifying Your Own Way

Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. (Galatians 6:7-9)
 
It can be difficult to talk about God’s judgment. As a believer, if you choose to hang on to anything other than Jesus, you will pay a price. When you choose to follow your will rather than God's will, and you are making decisions that do not align with the Word of God; you will pay a price one day. It will probably come sooner and be greater than you would ever expect.
 
If you are not aligned with God’s will, the way you approach decision making will change. When you are making critical decisions in your life, you might suddenly throw the Bible out the window, or you will re-interpret Scripture to align with what you want.  

Let me warn you; nothing is more dangerous in your life than when you claim this is God's will for your life, and it is contrary to God's Word. If you choose to move forward in that measure, judgment will happen. It might not happen today, but it will occur in the days to come. Judgment will come and destruction will be in your path.
 
I don’t want you to experience that. Instead, you must surrender your will and exchange it for God’s will. You must walk the path He has marked out for you. In doing so, you will gather a harvest of good things because you chose to be obedient.
 
Whatever steps you need to take today, whatever you need to let go of, I pray that you will do so with the intent of following Jesus rather than making your own way. If you do, you will definitely not regret this decision!
