I watched a movie tonight that spoke to the core of my being.
Before tonight I had been in conversation with some people. I found that I wanted them to like me. I desperately wanted to fit in. I did not agree with everything discussed, but I kept my mouth shut.
I was in communion with God all week, so it was easy to notice the quietness. I became uneasy in my spirit because I knew He was not pleased with me. And I knew why.
So, I got up this morning and told God sorry and that I needed help.
I knew that I had to choose. It could not be God and others. The word of God was either the standard I lived by or not at all.
The crazy thing is that I know this and, if anyone had asked me two weeks ago, I would have said that the word of God is the standard by which I live.
Not entirely, I found out.
I told God last week to show me my heart and lead me in the way everlasting if there was any wicked way in me.
Phew! He answered.
Pastor Mike said on Sunday that compromise is not about what you do that everybody sees. It is about what you do that God sees.
The compromise brought me to my knees in prayer tonight. The thirty-seven minutes’ movie was like an echo from heaven.
I told God tonight that His word is the only standard by which I want to live. All His work and time invested in my life will not go to waste. I will be His Voice and Hands everywhere I go.
I know the temptation to suck up will resurface, so I am spending time in prayers and His word today.
“Now the just shall live by faith; But if anyone draws back, My soul has no pleasure in him.Hebrews 10:38
But Jesus said to him, “No one having put his hand to the plow, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.”Luke 9:62.
Fam, please go and watch The Compromise. It is on YouTube. It is 37 minutes worth your time and faith.
