We’re all tempted to sin. We’re all tempted to serve another god, besides our beloved Christ.
Recently, I have been faced with temptation of my own. To embrace bitterness and hold it near. It’s been a struggle to not lash out at those who come against me in vain, laughing at how funny they are, while trying to over power me with their wickedness.
Thankfully, thank the Lord, In the last few weeks, I’ve begun to desire to read the word in it’s entirety. God has given me this desire, to look further in to the history of my lineage (my Christian heritage) and take refuge in how he has rescued my spiritual-family throughout history from Satan himself. Since studying the shereadstruth.com women’s Bible study on Proverbs, as a part of this lineage study, I came across the versus posted above from Proverbs 4 [vs. 3-6].
Adultery is the prominent theme in this chapter of Proverbs. Thanks to David, in this chapter we are reminded of how ugly sin really is and how we should desire no part of it. David even describes this as an instant path towards eternal death. Needless to say, I no longer desire any part of what my co-workers desire for me. David even goes on to say that ‘adulterous’ knows not of her ways, she is blinded by the veil over her eyes. Which leads me to my point, my prayer requests…
prayer request: may I never consider to serve anyone or anything aside from Jesus. And please, Lord give me the strength to pray for my enemies who blind fully follow our enemy.
