Psalm 17: 1 “Hear, O Lord, my righteous plea; listen to my cry. Give ear to my prayer-it does not rise from deceitful lips.”
Wouldn’t it be nice if we all could say that? If we could all say, “I do not have deceitful lips.”
The truth is most of us tell untruths, at least once in a while.
God warns us not to bear false witness in His 10 Commandments. When we do anything against God’s commands it creates emptiness in our souls. Do you know what I mean by this? When we intentionally go against His Holy Spirit and lie, we instantly have a feeling of regret and guilt. That feeling creates emptiness. When we feel empty on the inside it is easy to fill ourselves with something from this world, such as junk food, pop or alcohol. Therefore, increasing our hips. When we overeat it is often a symptom of emptiness inside.
The GOOD NEWS is Jesus came, lived, suffered, died and rose again so you can be free!!!!
Try to keep your thoughts, words and deeds pure, but when you can’t, repent and trust that Jesus is filling you from the inside with His love and forgiveness.
Be fit and be blessed,
