James 4:17, "So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin." Prayers not being answered? Maybe we need Spiritual Power! Deal thoroughly with SIN. We have got to deal firmly with sin in our lives. We use new words with fancy names to describe sin so we don't feel so guilty. For example we don't come under conviction any more; we get a "guilt complex" or "march to a different drummer". Instead of confessing and repenting we go for psychoanalysis to hear excuses for our actions. So don't call our sins by another name; if we are jealous, call it jealousy. If we tend to pity ourselves and don't feel appreciated, call it what it is - self-pity. If we get angry easily, don't call it indignation, it is a bad temper. SIN by any other name, is SIN! PRAYER - FATHER, we are giving thanks right now for exposing our excuses and want to change our lives (and lies) through YOUR power. MEDITATION - When we listen to the guidance of the HOLY SPIRIT we are filled with love, forgiveness and faithfulness; and there is no room for excuses and lies. THOUGHT - We are going to ponder on the Blessings GOD has bestowed upon us and not call our sins by another name. WRITE - We are going to be perfectly candid with GOD, because HE knows anyway and still loves us. CALL IT WHAT IT IS!
Psalm 139: 23-24
GOD IS GOD!
