Growing up, I would often hear others make the remark, “you act like you don’t have good sense!” Well even though that observation sounds harsh, it is actually worth making. Sometimes we have to call it like we see it, especially in today’s climate.
If you look around, you may notice the latest social media challenges that seem to be luring others “acting like they don’t have good sense” into a world of self-destruction.
However, there is hope. Verse 17 of Proverbs 16 reminds us that to depart from evil is to preserve the soul. The soul is where our feelings and emotions are housed.
If you are experiencing unbecoming emotions, check your prior actions. Have you been indulging in evil? Have you been doing those things that are not normally ‘you’? Have you strayed away from the God of all gods; the only wise God who is able to save your soul?
I implore you to acknowledge Jesus as God, believe he came to save you from your sins, and accept him as your Lord and Savior.
The LORD thy God is an everlasting Life Source. In him all things consist.
When Adam and Eve ate of the forbidden fruit, the LORD asked, “Adam where art thou?” Genesis 3:9 KJV implies they were disconnected from the one True Vine, their Life Source.
Had Adam and his wife Eve not eaten the fruit from the forbidden tree, they could have enjoyed living in the Garden of Eden, a place where God provided everything they needed for eternity.
Once they became disconnected, they were “kicked” out of the Garden, disconnected, lost and left to provide for themselves.
I encourage you not to disconnect yourself from your Life Source, God! And, if you find yourself out-of-place, say out loud, “Speak to my heart LORD, show me thine way, for you are my Life Source, Amen.”
Joshua was in the middle of a transition and he had to trust God like never before! God said to Joshua in verse 2: Moses my servant is dead; now therefore arise, go over this Jordan thou, and all this people.
God is now saying to you, arise! The one you depended so heavily is no more. God has a job for you to do. This is not a small thing, but with God by your side commissioning and protecting you, you will win if you trust and obey.
