RIGHT IN HIS OWN EYES


RIGHT IN HIS OWN EYES

Judges 17:6 (NKJV) In those days there was no king in Israel; everyone did what was right in his own eyes.

Judges 21:25 (NKJV) In those days there was no king in Israel; everyone did what was right in his own eyes.

These verses can be so scary, because if people do not have the Holy Spirit in them, or upon them like these Old Testament people, then there could be sin in the camp.  You see, without the restraint of the Holy Spirit, man will gravitate to his own fleshy nature, instead of to God.  We see this within children.  Left to themselves, children will lie, steal, disobey, and more.  But when they are disciplined properly, they will grow up, be blessed, and have a good long life.

Man has the fallen “adamic” nature within him, and will go towards that nature until the Word of God gets into his heart and mind, and he is born again.  The Spirit of God will convict us and show us what is right and wrong. The Word of God has this power within it, and when the Bible is taken out of a society, it is only a matter of time before that society goes down.

Today, we believers have God’s Word within us, and we have the Holy Spirit in us, so let us let Him be the driving force in our lives.  When we sense that the flesh is trying to take over and have us do things that we know are wrong, it is time to spend more time in the Word and let it wash us of the junk of this world.

We are all going to make mistakes in life, but God’s Word is living water, and it will help us to overcome the attacks of the enemy.  So go ahead and drink deeply of the things of God.  Spend time with your Heavenly Father, and let His power do the work within you.  It is so important for us to do that if we are going to live an abundant life in Christ Jesus.  Remember that God is for you and not against you.  He has your back and your front.  Give Him your whole life, and watch the victories come.  Choose not to do what is right in your own eyes.  Choose instead to do what is right in God’s eyes.

CONFESSION:  Today, I choose to live for God and not for myself.  God has my best interest in mind, and I want to be blessed to be a blessing.
