I am reading Jude this morning, and my heart became heavy for my loved ones and people in general. You see whether we know it or not we have real enemies on our hands that hate our babies and us. I felt sorrow for God children because we are following our instincts bring about our own destruction.
Cain killed his brother, Balaam deceived people for money, and Korah perished for his rebellion (not only him but also, the people his family). These men like so many today are winds without rain, lick trees in autumn that are dead, dangerous objects that can shipwreck us. Please remember scoffers purpose in like is to see their ungodly desires unfold and will create division among us because they do not have God’s Spirit in them.
Then I read about Enoch who pleased God so much so that God took him. I want to please God. I want to be like a tree planted by the rivers of water that brings forth fruit in its season. Father help us not to be grumblers and complainers living only to satisfy our own desires. Giving flattering words to get what we want. Help us to be healthy and strong in you. Help us to build each other up and speak words that lift your children to a better place. And may we not fall into the quicksand of compassion and compromise Gods standards and His principles.
