Devotion : Lord Help Me To Get This Right
Testimony: When I first began to come to Christ I struggled. I witnessed a lot of hypocrisy and pettiness and I didn’t understand because God was dealing with me so heavily on why certain things were wrong. Did I make mistakes ? Yes. Did I sin ? Yes. But now I understand that there were some things that I needed to change (that was not being taught) to effectively walk forward in Christ.
- Guard Your Heart
Dear friend, take my advice; it will add years to your life. I’m writing out clear directions to Wisdom Way, I’m drawing a map to Righteous Road. I don’t want you ending up in blind alleys, or wasting time making wrong turns. Hold tight to good advice; don’t relax your grip. Guard it well—your life is at stake! Don’t take Wicked Bypass; don’t so much as set foot on that road. Stay clear of it; give it a wide berth. Make a detour and be on your way.

You can do this by stop listening to certain secular music such as Beyonce , Queen Naija , Katy Perry, Michael Jackson, and Justin Timberlake . Start listening to more gospel music such as Mississippi Mass Choir , Elavation Worship, or Bethel !

Judah has been unfaithful, and a detestable thing has been done in Israel and in Jerusalem. The men of Judah have defiled the Lord ’s beloved sanctuary by marrying women who worship idols. May the Lord cut off from the nation of Israel every last man who has done this and yet brings an offering to the Lord of Heaven’s Armies. Here is another thing you do. You cover the Lord ’s altar with tears, weeping and groaning because he pays no attention to your offerings and doesn’t accept them with pleasure. You cry out, “Why doesn’t the Lord accept my worship?” I’ll tell you why! Because the Lord witnessed the vows you and your wife made when you were young. But you have been unfaithful to her, though she remained your faithful partner, the wife of your marriage vows. Didn’t the Lord make you one with your wife? In body and spirit you are his. And what does he want? Godly children from your union. So guard your heart; remain loyal to the wife of your youth. “For I hate divorce!” says the Lord , the God of Israel. “To divorce your wife is to overwhelm her with cruelty, ” says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies. “So guard your heart; do not be unfaithful to your wife.” You have wearied the Lord with your words. “How have we wearied him?” you ask. You have wearied him by saying that all who do evil are good in the Lord ’s sight, and he is pleased with them. You have wearied him by asking, “Where is the God of justice?”
Malachi 2:11-17 NLT
Today ask God for wisdom and understanding in regards to your life and He will answer you.
If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking.
James 1:5 NLT

On the Sabbath, we left the city and went down along the river where we had heard there was to be a prayer meeting. We took our place with the women who had gathered there and talked with them. One woman, Lydia, was from Thyatira and a dealer in expensive textiles, known to be a God-fearing woman. As she listened with intensity to what was being said, the Master gave her a trusting heart—and she believed!
Acts 16:13-14 MSG
Hebrews 3:17 New Living Translation (NLT)
17 And who made God angry for forty years? Wasn’t it the people who sinned, whose corpses lay in the wilderness?
Galatians 3:17 New Living Translation (NLT)
17 This is what I am trying to say: The agreement God made with Abraham could not be canceled 430 years later when God gave the law to Moses. God would be breaking his promise.
