Galatians 6:7-8 (AMPC)7 Do not be deceived and deluded and misled; God will not allow Himself to be sneered at (scorned, disdained, or mocked [a]by mere pretensions or professions, or by His precepts being set aside.) [He inevitably deludes himself who attempts to delude God.] For whatever a man sows, that and [b]that only is what he will reap. 8 For he who sows to his own flesh (lower nature, sensuality) will from the flesh reap decay and ruin and destruction, but he who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.
Every word we speak and every action we take is a seed that we sow. If we say or do something negative it will produce a harvest in our life. If we speak and act positively, it will produce a harvest as well. We cannot go to bed late at night and wake up early and expect to feel wide awake all day.
Some of us just feel bad all of the time and we don’t know why. It could be if we change our thought patterns and actions we might not feel so bad all the time. The grace God gives us empowers us to carry out God’s will for our lives and enables us to be obedient to God.
Sometimes in order to change our thought and action patterns we may need to make personal changes in who we spend time with. We could solve a lot of our problems just by changing the landscape of our friends. The people we hang around have a lot more influence on us then we realize. It takes a lot of courage to change friendships to do what is right. God will provide you with the grace to remove you from situations if it is in His will. If you know something is right for you then, make a choice to do that thing, even if it means removing yourself from situations and people that negatively impact your life.
Don’t give up in making right choices for your life. You will reap what you sow when you continue doing right and do not give up! We have to make it through the hard part so we can get to the good part!
Galatians 6:9 (AMPC) 9 And let us not lose heart and grow weary and faint in acting nobly and doing right, for in due time and at the appointed season we shall reap, if we do not loosen and relax our courage and faint.
If you would like to accept Jesus as your savior, and you are not quite sure how, it is as simple as saying a prayer to God letting Him know you are ready to accept Him into your life. Say this prayer if you would like to invite Jesus to live in your heart:
Father God, I love you and believe in you. I need you Lord and I am sorry for my sins and the way that I live. Lord, I want you in my life. I receive Jesus as my savior and Lord. I believe that Jesus died for me and rose from the dead. Lord take me as I am and make me the way you want me to be. God, thank you for saving me and being with me on my journey. I am looking forward to my journey with you Lord. I know you will equip me for my journey and I am glad I have you by my side as I walk this walk of Life. Thank you Lord, I love you. Amen
