God is NOT Mocked...

To GOD be the glory!

My soul has been grieved, as I have been in prayer over the last few days. I am interceding for God's people, particularly those in ministry and leadership. So many are "going through" different trials, tribulations and turmoils. In fact, many are dealing with secret sins, addictions and habits. I simply asked God to shed light on the situation.

We know that God tempts no man. He allows temptation, but He does not tempt us with evil, entices us to sin (James 1:13-15). However, the Word of God tells us that we are tempted by our own lusts, which are driven by the soul (mind, emotions, thoughts), then manifested in the flesh through sin. So, why are God's people struggling? Why are so many fighting?

We are simply living the word of God...

Gal 6:7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
Gal 6:8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.
Gal 6:9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
Gal 6:10 As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.

The Body of Christ is reaping what has been sown. Too many have sown into the flesh, but are seeking spiritual elevation. There is a problem when God's people are struggling with the same sins over and over. This is an epidemic! We must get serious about doing the will of God.

God is calling for TRUE HOLINESS AND SANCTIFICATION. We must be holy as our Father is holy. There is a standard that MUST be met for those who call themselves the elect of God. There is no excuse! The sin must cease. Holiness is NOT an option. Giving up and giving in is NOT an option.

As saints of God, we are to be in the world, but not OF the world. To be sanctified means to be separated unto God for His use. In order to be separate people, led of the Holy Spirit rather than our flesh, we must sow into the Spirit. Instead, many spend their time investing in the flesh - television, radio, gossip, ungodly internet usage - the list goes on and on. Where is the holiness and separation? The people of God must return to sowing in the spirit realm - fasting, prayer, meditation, fellowship, worship and praise...

If you are experiencing consistent struggles in your life around a particular sin or habit, where and how are you spending the majority of your time? The Word has spoken - God is not mocked! You will continue to reap what you sow.

To GOD be the glory!
