Every action brings a consequence

Isaiah 14:12-15 (AMP)   12 How have you fallen from heaven, O light-bringer and daystar, son of the morning! How you have been cut down to the ground, you who weakened and laid low the nations [O blasphemous, satanic king of Babylon!]   13 And you said in your heart, I will ascend to heaven; I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will sit upon the mount of assembly in the uttermost north.   14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High.   15 Yet you shall be brought down to Sheol (Hades), to the innermost recesses of the pit (the region of the dead).

The Devil exalted himself and God brought him down. If we persist to do what we want to do and not what God wants us to do, then God will humble us. It is much more pleasant if we choose to humble ourselves rather than let God do it for us. You can keep doing what you are doing to make yourself happy but you may find that it will never work.

Satan will fill our minds with things we think we need to make us happy – which is the total opposite way that God wants us to live. When Satan tempts us he never tells us what our consequences are when we take his bait. When he tempted Eve to be selfish he didn’t tell them the consequences, he just told them they would be as smart as God. Every action brings a consequence.

My true belief is that the best way to preach is by our actions and not our words. However, we need some daily inspiration to keep us on our path. We as Christians have a responsibility not to judge others by our words but to show the love of Christ by loving them where they are at on their personal journey in life...and if they never turn their life over to Christ, continue to love them for who they are - after all God does.
