Here I am, in that awful place of disobedience again.
The Holy Spirit warned me years ago, and out of necessity, in other words, because I had no other choice—I obeyed. But lately, circumstances have changed. Trouble has ceased and where do I find myself? Back in the same distress God delivered me from.
Israel and I have way too much in common. I’m praying, God, I want to be faithful like Daniel.
The warnings of the past still stand today, sweet friend. If you’re suffering the consequences of disobedience, I’m hunkering down next to you. Asking, receiving forgiveness, putting away the fear of how obedience appears to the world.
It may hurt for awhile, but take heart, the Lord delivers the broken and contrite heart.
A breath of fresh prayer to share: Holy Spirit, forbid I take a bribe or be greedy for gain troubling my own house. Proverbs 15:27
