DAILY WORDS OF HOPE
BY PCG, HOPE CONGREGATION–SAK. EST
TODAY’S VERSE: (Read Genesis 3:8-15)
Then the man and his wife heard the sound of the LORD God as He was walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and they hid from the LORD God among the trees of the garden. 9 But the LORD God called to the man, “Where are you.”
THEME: WALK IN THE WAY OF THE LORD
WORDS OF HOPE:
There are standards with regards to how God expect us to live and these standards are clearly outlined in scripture. Adam knew these standards so well and as a result went into hiding when he discovered that he had disobeyed His maker. As we are all aware, Adam was instructed not to eat the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil located in the Garden of Eden. However, in his quest to become like God, he went against this command of the Lord. Most of the temptations that come our way which we fall prey to are all just like that of Adam and eve. Note the means by which the enemy uses to get us go against the will of God: the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eye and pride of life. These are the ways through which we engage ourselves in situations that displeases God. As Christians, we are not ignorant of the way God wants us to live but Like Adam and Eve we involve ourselves in the situation before we come to the realization. We need to know the Christian options available at every particular point in time so as to know the escape roots. What is the way of the Lord as far as gambling, alcoholism, fornication and adultery are concerned? We must bear in mind that Christ is coming for those who are walking in the way of the Lord.
• Pray for the grace to walk in the ways of the Lord.
• Pray to be delivered from the love of this world.
• Pray for the grace to know the Christian options at all times.
Lord, assist me to know what to do at every particular point in time in the name of Jesus. Amen 🙏🏽
