Don’t Straddle the Fence


The choice is ours. We have been given free will to do as we please. We have been given the opportunity to believe what we want to believe…and become what we want to become. God does not hold us back from anything. It is up to us to make the choice to live righteously, or to ignore the love of God. There is no gray area when it comes to God. The reality is simple. There are two forces in this world…good versus evil. Make sure you are not trying to straddle the fence. When it comes down to it…a person who is not clear…will be easily tempted into the devil’s schemes. Stand strong, and make a decision. Choose to believe that God is the one and only…and you will have chosen a life of help, hope, love and eternity. Give God the chance to show you His power. Don’t expect overnight miracles, but give God time. God’s promises will clearly change your life.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” JEREMIAH 29:11

Dear children, do not let anyone lead you astray. He who does what is right is righteous, just as He is righteous. He who does what is sinful is of the devil, because the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil’s work. No one who is born of God will continue to sin, because God’s seed remains in him; he cannot go on sinning, because he has been born of God. This is how we know who the children of God are and who the children of the devil are: Anyone who does not do what is right is not a child of God; nor is anyone who does not love his brother. 1 JOHN 3:7-10

God is with us.
