Your best friend..is He?
***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, help me to get through this day and the challenges that I will be facing today. Guide me, strengthen me, and give me wisdom as I make choices throughout this day. Please watch over my family and those I love in this world, and keep them safe. I love You Lord, and depend upon You each moment of each day. Bless me as I go through the day, living my life for Your glory. In the name of Jesus I pray...AMEN!!!
***THE DAILY LIVEPRAYER TV NUGGET: The Church of Sweden has officially stated that climate hysteria activist Greta Thunberg is the successor of Jesus Christ. The Church of Sweden is known for its liberal position in theological issues. Translation, it is a FAKE CHURCH! As God has been removed from the daily life throughout Europe, what few once great Christian churches that still exist are nothing but Biblically compromised shells of the faith. So, it is not a surprise that a church which is more concerned with social issues than holiness and salvation, would make such a disgusting proclamation. The Bible told us that in the last days we would be worshipping the created over the Creator. That is also happening in this nation every day.
I often refer in these Daily Devotionals and in many responses to the prayer requests we receive that your daily walk with Christ is the most important thing in your life. You cannot minimize how important that daily time in prayer and the Word is to your life. In that time of fellowship with Christ, He speaks to you, you share the struggles and joys of your current situations, you gain strength, and you stay focused on what this life is all about.
When a person "backslides" or gets caught up in things that go against what God wants, having that daily time with the Lord usually stops. Why? Because in your rebellion you know you are not doing what the Lord wants. When Adam sinned, He hid from the God he use to fellowship with. When we disobey our parents, we try to avoid them. When we do something wrong at work, we try to cover it up. When we violate the trust with our spouse, we try to avoid them. Why? Because we know we are rebelling, we have allowed sin to control us and we are ashamed and guilty.
As difficult as it may be, when you sin, that is the time to run TO the Lord. We have that special promise in 1 John 1:9 that assures us if we confess our sins, He will forgive us. The problem is, we don't want to stop sinning. We enjoy it. As destructive as sin is, we love it. We play games with ourselves that we will never do it again, but let a little time pass, and we aren't looking at solving the problem, but doing it some more.
