Transgression- the 1828 dictionary descibes it as one who commits a fault, offense, or crime. Psalm 36 says Transgression (like an oracle)speaks to the wicked deep in his heart. There is no fear or dread of God before his eyes. dread - awful and terrible. For he flatters and deceives himself in his own eyes that his iniquity will not be found out and be hated. The words of his mouth are wrong and deceitful; he has ceased to be wise and to do good. deceives- to cause to beleive what is false. Matthew says take heed that no man deceive you. Do not be mocked whatsoever a man sows that shall he reap. So how and why does the enemy get away with deceit especially where it concerns God's people. We have his word and he tells us very clear...woe to him who calls evil good and good evil... How do we get does this happen... How do we tell ourselves that gross sin will go unpunished, that my sin will not affect others? That somehow the laws of order God has set up do not apply to us. That if we sin, we will not be found out. That it will not lead to the destruction of other innocent people or that it will not bring death to our lives. Death to our relationships. Death to those who trust us to do what is right. There is a way that SEEMS right to a man , but the end thereof is death. How can we be so deceived .... I have heard it said that in the quietness , when no one is watching, when you feel like no one would ever find out, or see what you are doing......that is what character really looks like. Even if no one would ever find out , A FOOL says in his heart there is no God....No GOD.....We think we know better than Him....that his word and his judgement are meant for others. Verse 4 it says he sets himself in a way that is not good; he does not reject or despise evil....there is a purpose he sets himself, a choice....they refuse to see evil for what it is.
But, Your mercy and loving-kindness, O Lord, extend to the skies, and Your faithfulness to the clouds. Your righteousness is like the mountains of God...... God is faithful even when we are not He will bring justice to pass..wait patiently for Him , no need to strike back against the evil that comes to steal , kill, and destroy us when we are beleivers in His Word.. He will bring about THE TRUTH eventually. He is EL ROI ...the God who sees. Thank you Jesus, in a day where evil is aggessive and seeking us, that You see everything and You are a Just God...

God's Miraculous Hand

The Hand of God never ceases to amaze me..... As a believer, you pray and pray for something. You want things to be different than they are. You know it is in line with God's will and his plan. And you just stand and you pray. Every day , in faith , you awaken in the same sad state, sometimes in your crisis you are wondering if you will ever be delivered to a sweeter place in victory. You wonder what you are supposed to learn, and whether you brought these evil things upon your own life. In the stillness, while you are waiting, sometimes you hear His gentle voice giving you hope and encouragement. Sometimes you actually have done some things to open the door to evil. Sometimes you are just serving the Lord and struggling just to survive. But what amazes me is, in our human weakness, when we feel like we just can't go on; and everything in our flesh says we are crazy to believe God will intervene. That's when God and your faith come rushing out of the transition stage of labor, as my friend, Elizabeth puts it, and into the incredible, joyous , and wonderful birth of something beautiful. I know the ladies who have had babies might not remember the pregnancy or the amount of weight they gained or even whether they were sick or tired. But if they have been to the transition stage of labor even once, they will remember , all you want to do is quit, give up, and you will do just about anything to make it stop. The problem is if you can just hold on a very short time longer....the birth. And what an emotional high that is to see the beauty of birth. What a beautiful joy to hold the most incredible thing you think God has ever created..... I have seen His miracles even today and I am elated that he still cares for me enough to hear my cry and attend unto my need. I am humbled before a mighty God and grateful for today....
