June 14, 2021 FAIL TO FALL
Knowing the outcome of something ahead of time can help us make better decisions. If we know something bad is going to happen before we take the action or say the words, we may think twice before doing or saying anything. However, we don’t know the outcome of anything until it happens. We can’t predict the future or know how things are going to work out. So we have to make as good of a choice as we can and have faith we are doing the right things.
We can see the results of wrong decisions all around us. Just watching the news or scrolling through social media will show us those who are suffering because of the wrong decisions either they made or someone else did. However, there is hope. When we put our faith in God to help us make right choices, He will help us. When we pray in faith asking God to give us clarity and wisdom before we take action, we can succeed.
Our goal in life is to fail to fall into the temptations of sin which can move us into making wrong decisions. This fallen world is proof of wrong choices made. Let’s choose God and have faith He will lead us down the right path in life. When we go to God before making any decisions every day and faith He will answer, He can help us choose the right path.
Hebrews 12:13 “Mark out a straight path for your feet so that those who are weak and lame will not fall but become strong.” (NLT)
1. Write about some godly choices you have made.
2. List ways the evil in this world can lead to wrong choices.
3. Know your choices in life should be pleasing to God.
4. Seek ways to help others to make faithful choices.
Dear Lord, we are weak but You are strong. We are tempted yet Your word can turn us from temptations. We are living in a fallen world with many choices to make and no knowledge of the outcome. Help us, we pray, and direct our paths so we can know what to do and say. We want to be on guard so we are not fooled by those who want us to do wrong. Help us fail to fall into temptations. We want to trust in You and have faith as we follow Your ways. In the name of Jesus, we pray. Amen.
