Topic: Power To Break Barriers [Thursday January 19, 2017]
“Now rise up, said I, and get you over the brook Zered. And we went over the brook Zered. And the space in which we came from Kadesh-barnea until we were come over the brook Zered, was thirty and eight years; until all the generation of the men of war were wasted out from among the host, as the LORD sware unto them.” (Deut 2:13-14)
Deuteronomy 2:14b says, “… until all the generation of the men of war were wasted from among the host, as the LORD sware unto them.”
A major reason Israel’s journey was prolonged is that God was against them. No wonder Romans 8:31b says, “… If God be for us, who can be against us?”
The truth is that sin is the major thing that turns God against a person. Another major thing is unbelief. God never created any human being with the intention of someday turning against him or her. Why would a father who did all he could to ensure the training and wellbeing of his son suddenly wake up one morning to ban him from entering his house? The child must have done something very terrible.
“Behold, I am against thee, O inhabitant of the valley … I will punish you according to the fruit of your doings.” (Jeremiah 21:13-14)
A repercussion exists for everything and anything you do. What are you doing with your salvation? Are you turning God against you by your deeds? If God is against you, who will help you? You are finished! God has said He would definitely visit you with the consequences of your choices.
Choices can be positive or negative, and so can consequences. As you make right choices, positive consequences will visit you today.
WORDS OF WISDOM: There is a repercussion for everything and anything you do.
PRAYER/CONFESSION: Father LORD, I don’t want You to turn against me. In Jesus’ name, remove from me every spirit of distraction that will cause me to offend You.
