Walking Out of God's Will
I usually don't do posts back to back but I feel impressed by the Lord to put a short post up today. After conversating with people I started wondering why would someone walk out of God's Will. We have all heard the phrase the safest place to be is in the middle of God's Will. That brings me to a question how many of us are walking in the Will of God today. I mean you know there is no doubt in your mind that you are in the center of God's Will. I asked you to be careful answering that to quickly. God has a perfect will for all of his children that he wants to perform in our lives, however he gives us the choice to obey or not to obey. I am going to preach a message after I study a little bit more on The Dangers of Purposely Walking out of God's Will. I believe this is very dangerous ground to be on. When we know what God wants and we disobey we really are asking for it. I have heard the Lord allowing people to be put on their backs, and I have heard people having bad accidents for God to get their attention. I know people that would rather die, than find themselves back in his Will. That is very sad. I thank God that many times when we walk outside his will he shows how good he is to us, and most of the time that gets us back in his will. However I know God will chastise us when we step outside of his Will and depending on how hard headed we are that depends on the severity of what happens. I hope all that read this today will make sure that they are in his will because if we are walking outside of his will we are outside the hedge that God has for us. You can look at people in the Bible who walked outside of His Will and what happened to them. We look at Abraham who had a child with hagar outside of God's will and now we see the battle going on in the middle east. We look at Jonah who walked outside God's will and the Lord got his attention by allowing him to be swallowed up by a great fish. We look at David who should have been in battle which was God's Will and he stay home and committed adultery, and committed murder and most of all tried to hide it from God. I hope this stirs our minds and our hearts to stay in the center of His Will. May God bless you till next time.
