This morning a whisper was passing by, catching me off guard. “Read your Bible later, you’re too tired right now!” Like a demon assigned by the evil one to cause me to stumble, compromise was trying to implant a not so wise thought.
Nearly 5 months ago, 147 days to be exact, I began a 150 day journey, attempting to read every Psalm, one per day. Since prayer doesn’t come natural for me, I have been trying to improve my prayer life by learning from King David. Yet, even David found himself caught by a momentary lapse of judgment in 2 Samuel 11:1-3. Instead of fighting this whisper of idleness, David gave into this desire, thereby fulfilling the words of James 1:13-15.
When morning comes, the consequences of compromise remain, permanently etched within one’s mind. As a result, the stains of sin contaminate your soul. Attached by guilt, individual’s often drift further away, now separated from God. What started as a whisper has led to a not so wise reality. If you are feeling defeated today, forgiveness is available every morning, Lamentations 3:22-23. However, the longer you wait, your condition will worsen, numbing you into an eternal sleep. Snap out of it before its too late, Hebrews 10:26-27.
