40 Days to Lasting Change Day 25
This Time It Is a Big Deal
I have hidden your work in my heart that I might now sin against you.
Today Kyle Idleman writes, “The problem is we don’t realize how bad things are. When you spend too much time in the Distant Country, you start to come yourself with the people living around you, saying, ‘If everyone else is living this way, then what’s the big deal?’ It’s a slippery slope of the Distant Country. Soon your perspective becomes warped.”
I like that statement that says, “God’s word is meant to get our attention, so we won’t minimize our sin, but rather realize the seriousness of the situation.” We don’t have to end up in a pigsty before we make some life adjustments. God’s wisdom of His Scripture and His Spirit will speak to us and lead us in life-giving ways. Are we taking time to be in a place where we can hear God’s word to us on our way through this life?
