Judges 2:17 Israel did not listen to the judges but prostituted themselves by worshiping other gods. How quickly they turned away from the path of their ancestors, who had walked in obedience to the Lord’s commands.
Not all paths lead to God. Going through the motions isn’t enough. Sometimes we want recovery but do not want what God wants because we are all basically selfish.
Faith in The One True Higher Power doesn’t offer short-term benefits that appeal to our sinful natures. The essence of sin is selfishness; the essence of God is selflessness. Seeking close, personal relationship with Jesus is the only way for us to discover God’s will for our lives carry it out.
Prayer: Lord, help me today, show me Your way and help me live it.
