Something to think about

In the multitude of words sin is not lacking, But he who restrains his lips is wise. (Proverbs 10:19 NKJV)

Today's meditation

For at the window of my house I looked through my lattice, And saw among the simple, I perceived among the youths, A young man devoid of understanding, Passing along the street near her corner; And he took the path to her house In the twilight, in the evening, In the black and dark night. And there a woman met him, With the attire of a harlot, and a crafty heart. She was loud and rebellious, Her feet would not stay at home. At times she was outside, at times in the open square, Lurking at every corner. So she caught him and kissed him; With an impudent face she said to him: “ I have peace offerings with me; Today I have paid my vows. So I came out to meet you, Diligently to seek your face, And I have found you. I have spread my bed with tapestry, Colored coverings of Egyptian linen. I have perfumed my bed With myrrh, aloes, and cinnamon. Come, let us take our fill of love until morning; Let us delight ourselves with love. For my husband is not at home; He has gone on a long journey; He has taken a bag of money with him, And will come home on the appointed day.” With her enticing speech she caused him to yield, With her flattering lips she seduced him. Immediately he went after her, as an ox goes to the slaughter, Or as a fool to the correction of the stocks, Till an arrow struck his liver. As a bird hastens to the snare, He did not know it would cost his life. Now therefore, listen to me, my children; Pay attention to the words of my mouth: Do not let your heart turn aside to her ways, Do not stray into her paths; For she has cast down many wounded, And all who were slain by her were strong men. Her house is the way to hell, Descending to the chambers of death. (Proverbs 7:6-27 NKJV)
What else should we say?

Be blind

How many times in life, we could have done a lot better spiritually and in terms of your faith, if we were not lead by what we see.

Sometimes we make wrong choices, judge people by their appearance, don't move forward or even commit sins because of our eyes.

There are loads of different passages that can illustrate that but i would like to share one I was meditating today:

Jesus said to them, "If you were blind, you would have no sin; but now you say,'We see'. Therefore your sin remains.
John 9:41

The religious Pharisees were arguing with Jesus because He healed on the Sabbath and Jesus replied with the above when they asked if they were blind. 

Adam and Eve had no sin, until they disobeyed God and their eyes were opened.

How many members, assistants, pastors etc... we're very useful  in the work of God until one day their eyes were opened and they began to see. Now they are full of sins, because the eyes is the lamp of the body and throught it sin has entered them.

We have to learn not to look at anyone or anything except Jesus.

That is why I said in the title Be Blind.

Share with someone.

Hearing God's Voice

God said to Elijah arise go to Zarephath for a have commanded a widow there to provide for you.
When he arrived the widow was there but God had not spoken to her previously telling her anything, she did not see o hear God.
When Elijah spoke to her asking for the bread, she said As the Lord your God lives, I do not have bread.
Did God make a mistake?
No, but the widow saw it as Elijah asking her for bread not God.
If God had appeared to her in person maybe she would have believed much faster but Elijah was a normal man, when he said thus says the Lord  The bin of flour shall not be used up... She then went and did it and saw the results.
The same is happening with many people today, they look at the man and think this pastor is asking to much of me, God knows I cant do that etc...
If they would realise that is not the pastor but God they would act faster and the answer would be faster too.
After seen all God did through Elijah when her son was raised from the dead the widow said: "Now by this I know that you are a man of God, and that the word of the Lord in your mouth is truth." 1Kings 17:24
All those who believe the words that we are speaking, believe the words of God and when the results come they will say the same but first they have to hear and obey God's voice through the man of God.

May God bless you
