This sister grew up in a Christian environment but didn’t realise that the spiritual realm was real. She lived a homosexual lifestyle for awhile. One day, she experienced severe chest pains and was hospitalised, but they found nothing physcially wrong with her. So, she went to get prayer, and as she renounced her sins, demons manifested and took control of her body. That’s when she realised demons are real and, therefore, God must be real too.
If we live our lives according to what we want, how would that benefit us if we lose our own soul?
Mark 8:36 King James Version (KJV)
36 For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?
We live in an ordered universe created by God. We do not have free reign to live as we choose and not suffer the consequences. If we choose to live outside of the protection of God, we reap the consequences of our actions. And none of us have the power to create our own universe.
Hosea 4:6 King James Version (KJV)
6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
We live in a harsh universe and everyone will die one day. If we want God’s protection over us and to live eternally with him then we must be like Jesus Christ and submit to the will of the Father:
James 4:7-10 King James Version (KJV)
7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
8 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.
9 Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness.
10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.
Ok, let’s humble ourselves and seek God. Be like Jesus and submit ourselves to the will of the Father.
