“Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea; And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea; And did all eat the same spiritual meat; And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ. But with many of them God was not well pleased: for they were overthrown in the wilderness.
Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted.” 1 Corinthians 10 v1-6 AKJV
This day, how shall we go forward and not understand that Gods ways are far beyond our ways. The spoil of this world and it’s richness of things, or stuff, so often placed in front of many of which have developed no inclination of conviction of when to hold back from these desires. As we for the most part often yield to these same desires. We should not.
Lord, this day, continue to build in us stronger convictions, not condemnations, of who we should be for ourselves and for others. Let us hear your word, Let your spirit speak into our ears, and Let our hearts be softened to follow you, and let our minds know you are in control. We thank you this day for your word. Forgive us where we have failed, and let us be mindful to strive for that higher purpose of yours we pray. Amen
