word for today


If we could understand, then we would do it, wouldn’t we? It’s because we don’t fully fathom God and His ways that we don’t obey Him or even consider Him during our day. We’re human, is our excuse. We can’t be like Him because we’re not Him. Granted; we are sinners, but must we sin? Is it possible, in all our humanness, to be obedient to our savior? I say it is possible, but not common. Even Paul, the apostle, had weaknesses. He did things that he shouldn’t have done and didn’t do things he should’ve. Now that, I fathom. Communication with God is the most necessary when we are weak. But after we’re up to our necks in the quicksand, it’s nearly impossible to get out. Stay close to your Heavenly Father and see if your sinning subsides. (No one born of God makes a practice of sinning, for God’s seed abides in him; and he cannot keep on sinning, because he has been born of God. 1 John 3:9; Whoever says he abides in him ought to walk in the same way in which he walked. 1 John 2:6)
