Daily Devotional for Monday June 29, 2020

Don't push God's grace!!!

(Acts 5:1-11)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, give me Your strength today. Your Word says that when I am weak, You are strong. Strengthen me this day to live my life for You, to defeat my enemies, and see victory. You, and You alone are my hope and strength each day. Let the Holy Spirit rise up in me this day and guide my life for Your glory! In the name of Jesus I pray...AMEN!!!

***THE DAILY LIVEPRAYER TV NUGGET: YOU...ARE...NOT...ALONE!!! In the craziness of these days we are currently experiencing, I want you to know that YOU ARE NOT ALONE!!! Less than 5% of the nation engaged in perverted sex with members of the same sex, and even a smaller % entered into a perverted marriage with someone of the same sex. Yet, that VERY SMALL MINORITY managed to mainstream homosexuality and gay marriage not to just the point it became acceptable and normative, but those who stood on God’s Word and opposed such sin and blasphemy were labeled bigots and hate-mongers! The Bible did say in the last days the truth would become the lie and the lie become the truth! Fast forward to today. If you don’t agree with race extortion, hatred of the police, and the anarchy of Black Lives Matter you can lose your job and career, be publicly ridiculed and shamed, and even beaten and killed! Once again, it is a minority of the population pushing this radical racial and anarchist narrative. It is being amplified by a few politicians who agree with this false narrative and the corporate mainstream media who is using the issue in their attempt to insure President Trump is no re-elected this November. Add to that so many people have been isolated from others during the Chinese Flu outbreak and I fully understand how many can begin to wonder if THEY are the ones who are wrong., if they are the ones who are crazy! My friend, take comfort in the fact that God’s Word is NEVER WRONG. It represents ABSOLUTE TRUTH! Ginning up racial hatred to advance an agenda, rebelling against the authority of those who give their very lives to serve and protect their communities, and supporting movements to literally overthrow your country ARE NOT OF GOD AND IN REBELLION TO HIS WORD!!! YOU ARE NOT WRONG BECAUSE GOD IS NOT WRONG!!! This is one of the key objectives for shutting down our churches. A big part of church is fellowshipping with other Believers, to bear each other’s burdens and encourage each other. Keeping the saints from the critical interaction is NOT an accident since in isolation without normal fellowship satan’s great trap of doubt can fester. So my friend, be of good cheer since Jesus has overcome this evil word and do not waiver in your Biblical beliefs. YOU AND GOD ARE ALWAYS A MAJORITY AND YOU ARE NOT ALONE!!!

Don't push God's grace. I have heard many wonderful messages on "the God of the second chance". I have to admit that in my life, it has been the God of the "I can't count that high" chances. I have been guilty in my life of rolling the dice and counting on God's grace to be there. Let me share something with you today that you MUST listen to. There is NO PLACE in the bible that promises you a second chance.

The messages on "the God of the second chance" are testimonies....NOT Biblical promises. Again, there is NO PLACE in the Bible where God promises you a second chance. However I do believe, that as long as you have breath, you can receive God's grace. That is where you are playing spiritual roulette. The Bible does tell us that tomorrow is not guaranteed to any of us. Read today's Scripture about Ananias and Sapphira.

The point of today's Devotional is as a warning, a wake-up call to those who are living in rebellion to God's will and plan for their life. Those who are betting that they can enjoy the fruits of sin and at some point "get right" with God...that may work...you may get lucky. But are you willing to bet eternity on a few moments of pleasure? Let me tell you the other fallacy in that thinking.

Once you are involved in sinful activities, it becomes like quicksand. You may want out, but at some point you realize that you can't get out. Sin lures you in, like the Venus flytrap, and all of the sudden you can't escape. You stop praying, you stop reading the Bible, you stop going to church, and you turn off any message of God. It becomes a slippery slope and each day you fall farther, making it harder to escape. I am speaking to many of you today, and you know who you are.

The answer? God sends His Word to you at various times to help you escape. He loves you! He has a perfect plan for your life. This message today is one of those times that God is speaking directly to your heart. This is not an accident that you are reading this today. The answer? Run from your sin and run to God before it is too late. The story of Ananias and Sapphira is NOT a work of fiction.

It happened. These were real people. They tempted God, pushed His grace, and lost! God is giving you an opportunity today to turn away from your sin. He will help you. He will strengthen you. Don't miss this chance, because THERE IS NO GUARANTEE YOU WILL HAVE ANOTHER ONE.

I love you and care about you. These are tough words because I know so many are hurting and in the midst of great turmoil. However, I have to be honest with you, because you need someone to tell it like it is. You can count on my prayers, and if I can help in any way, don't hesitate to contact me.

Are you livng in rebellion to God? If the answer is no, then find a quiet place right now, and simply ask God to forgive you, repent of your sins, and ask Him to help you come back to Him. He is extending His grace to you today. Don't take that grace for granted.

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

Bill Keller
