My God, my God, why have You forsaken me?
Why are You so far from helping me, and from the words of my groaning?
O my God, I call out by day, but You do not answer;
And by night, but I find no rest nor quiet.
But You are holy,
O You who are enthroned in [the holy place where] the praises of Israel [are offered].
In You, our fathers trusted [leaned on, relied on, and we’re confident];
They trusted and You rescued them.
They cried out to You and were delivered;
They trusted in You and were not disappointed or ashamed (Psalms 22:1-5).
Sin has a diabolical nature. When the sin is first conceived, it makes total sense why the individual should act on it. yet, once it is implanted or acted on, its tentacle-like roots grow deep in the heart of mankind. At the onset, sin tells the man, “You have a reason for this” and, “you know it is only once and you can always go back and repent”. However, sin has no intention of letting its prey go free because sin is a seed of the Devil’s mind and doesn’t care who it hurts or how they feel about it. Sin separates us from fellowship with the Lord and with His family. We can always go back but, it will not be easy nor will it sit well in our Spirit sort of like the young man in Luke 15.
Sin is diabolical just like its Father the Devil. it doesn’t care about me, how I feel, or the tears I cry. Help me to always keep this in mind in all that I do so that I never have a reason to feel defeated or afraid. May your Good Spirit guide me, my families, my military, my Law Enforcement Officers, my EMTs, my teachers, my ministers, my city of Stacy, my state of MN, and my USA. Please guide us eternal Father through the messes of our world today in you commit my life.
