We need to always say “LORD WILLING” before we make a commitment to anybody about doing anything. It is so important to pray and seek the Lord, and get his direction, and Godly counsel, especially about major decisions. Carefully, and prayerfully, read the class on ” How to Find God’s Will” in this web site. It wouldn’t hurt you to read it often.Don’t be afraid to tell people “I am still praying about it”. Remember God is hardly ever in a hurry unless he is angry. It took him six days to finish his creation. He could have done it in one second. I make some of my biggest mistakes when I am in a hurry. Sin is missing the mark.The word sin comes from and old English archery term, which was used when people missed the bulls eye on the target. You have to take time when you are aiming at a target and carefully let loose the arrow, for an accurate hit. It is the same if you are using a gun to hit a target. You need to slowly squeeze the trigger for accuracy, and don’t jerk, or you will miss the mark, and that’s a sin, because sin means missing the mark.” Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.“ ( Philippians 3:13,14). We had better make sure that an idea is God’s highest will before we jump into it, or we can miss the mark for the prize of God’s high calling in Christ Jesus !” Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away. For that ye ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that.” ( James 4:14,15). Life is too short for us to be making these serious blunders and time wasting mistakes, because of a lack of prayer and counsel and hearing from the Lord. Another thing to remember is, don’t go around telling everybody ” God Bless You”, unless you know for sure that the person that you are asking God to bless is living Godly. Other wise you are asking God to bless someone who may not be living a Godly life, and that makes you a partaker of their evil deeds. You could say ” May God Bless You”.” If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God Speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.” ( II John 1: 10,11)
Say this prayer to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believe you died on the cross for my sins ,and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.
