James 5:12 But above all, my brothers, do not swear, either by Heaven or Earth or by any other oath, but let your “yes” be yes and your “no” be no, so that you may not fall under condemnation.
A lying tongue and a deceitful heart seems to be all too common. I have a hard time believing that people that are not of the “way” do not understand that there is a war going on. A war that does not meet the eye. I am also realizing that you can desire salvation for someone just as much as you want it for yourself, but God chooses who receives. Where is free will in that you might say? I would respond that it is based on the condition of the use of your free will and the examination of ones heart that God allows for doors that no man can open to be opened, and doors that no man can close to be shut. John 17:6 I have manifested your name to the people whom you gave me out of the world. Yours they were, and you gave them to me, and they have kept your word. To be chosen to brought out from among the many and planted into the few. The true vine, engrafted into the Key of David. to become Children of the Most High. Citizens of Heaven.
Luke 6:45 A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart brings forth evil. For out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.
The Power of Prayer, James 5:13 Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing praise. Wisdom from Above James 3:13 Who is wise and understanding among you? By his good conduct let him show his works in the meekness of wisdom. Father today I pray that that I am able to discern the truth of what we are fighting. Proverbs 23:8 You will vomit up the morsels that you have eaten, and waste your pleasant words. 9:Do not speak in the hearing of a fool, for he will despise the good sense of your words. The spirit of offense in these last days will corrupt over half of the Church. Revelation 3:21 Those who are victorious will sit with me on my throne, just as I was victorious and sat with my father on his throne. 22: “Anyone with ears to hear must listen to the Spirit and understand what he is saying to the churches.”
As we dig deep into our spirits I pray that you are able to find the root of your cause of moral failures where they stem from, allowing that God would make you perfect and complete lacking nothing.
