OD IS RIGHTEOUS, HOLY AND JUST…SO YOU BETTER WATCH OUT!

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: GOD IS RIGHTEOUS, HOLY AND JUST…SO YOU BETTER WATCH OUT! No excuses on judgement day. All of your reasoning and rationale that you are using today to justify your actions, words and behavior may not work when you stand before God. [Deuteronomy 32:3-4] “For I proclaim the name of the Lord: Ascribe greatness to our God. He is the Rock, His work is perfect; For all His ways are justice, A God of truth and without injustice; RIGHTEOUS AND UPRIGHT IS HE.” By nature, we are not that…but we have opportunity by virtue of our conversion to become more like Him day by day. Then, when we stand before God we can be as thoroughly right with Him as possible. This is going to take focus…all of our energy and strength, along with honesty with ourselves and a willingness to repent when things go wrong or we fall short and sin. We are capable, let’s be honest and admit it. LIFE IS A STRUGGLE TO STAY RIGHT WITH GOD. I like what King David wrote; [Psalms 26:2] “Examine me, O Lord, and prove me; Try my mind and my heart.” We need an outside source to help us, that’s the point David is making….’EXAMINE ME, O LORD.’ We can easily misfire when it comes to judging ourselves. We can justify ourselves and be completely wrong. God, through His Word along with honesty and a willingness to repent is what it is going to take to be ready to stand before a Holy God and give account of our lives. GOD IS RIGHTEOUS, HOLY AND JUST…SO YOU BETTER WATCH OUT! Live carefully and wisely. Remember, one day, ONLY GOD’S ASSESSMENT IS GOING TO MATTER…no more excuses or self-justification.
