40 Days to Lasting Change Day 24
When He comes, he will prove the world to be in the wrong about sin and righteousness and judgment. John 16:18
Today’s word from “40 Days to Lasting Change” is, “To experience AHA, you don’t need to back away from the edge. You need to turn and run.” We have all sorts of excuses for keep danger, pleasure, and sin, close to us. We do, we keep telling ourselves that “things will be different next time” or that “it’s not that bad”, or even “other people deal with the same thing”. Left to our own excuses we find ourselves left in our pigsty. The reason we’re making excuses is that the Holy Spirit is examining our lives and exposing our issues. We want the Holy Spirit, but we want our unholy habit. We can’t have both and we know it. It’s going to take trust and treasuring a life that is free. Are we willing to exchange our excuses for His exoneration?
