“One Year Bible” Old Testament Passage
…She did not consider her destiny; therefore her collapse was awesome… Lamentations 1:9 (NKJV)
It has been said that sin is often a case of temporary insanity. Israel forgot who she was!!! She forgot the great calling God had given her. She forgot the history of great men and women who had carried the mantle. She forgot who God made her to be.
Therefore, she fell for the lies of temporary lovers. She settled for momentary solutions instead of holding for promised destiny. She had a great calling, but she suffered an equally great fall. Why? Because she forgot who she was.
Temptation always speaks to us of immediate relief. It lies to us telling us that the promised destiny will never come. We sell out our future for a bowl of beef stew (Gen. 25:29-34).
Today CONSIDER YOUR DESTINY!!! Meditate on the grand future before you in God. Consider the good things God yet has for you. This is one of our greatest weapons in the fight against sin. HOPE IN GOD!
