Divine Note #58 - God knows, so tell him - Hebrews 13:13

God knows, so tell him

Hebrews 13:13 Nothing is hidden from God! He sees through everything, and we will have to tell the truth.

I tweeted  (@BlancaV) this Scripture a few days ago and it really surprised me. But it shouldn’t. God knows what we are up to even if we don’t admit what we’re doing. How many times do we fall into situations that are questionable and yet we don’t talk to God because we’ve decided to go ahead and fall into sin?

It is so easy to justify things that we want to do or say. We’re especially vulnerable when the enemy attacks our strongholds. I can name many things but you probably get the picture. Anytime you find your prayer life lacking, short or not on your priority list, stop and think about what is going on.

Don’t justify things in your mind. Talk things out with a trusted friend, your pastor and especially God. Tell God everything that’s in your heart and mind. Let God help you get life right.

Big God Hugs,
Blanca

Sin on the journey

Before I know it, sin drips from my mouth and floods my mind. Oh the struggle.
Romans 7:22-23 I love to do God’s will so far as my new nature is concerned; but there is something else deep within me, in my lower nature, that is at war with my mind and wins the fight and makes me a slave to the sin that is still within me. In my mind I want to be God’s willing servant, but instead I find myself still enslaved to sin. So you see how it is: my new life tells me to do right, but the old nature that is still inside me loves to sin. Oh, what a terrible predicament I’m in! Who will free me from my slavery to this deadly lower nature? Thank God! It has been done by Jesus Christ our Lord. He has set me free. 
My current struggle is in not easily recognizing the extent of my sinfulness. I can easily preach it, but continuous righteous living eludes me.
Ouch. It hurts. I reveal this because I love the Lord with all my heart, mind and soul, but the sinner in me wins. It's the same struggle the A…
