If so and so is doing it.... it must be okay for me, right?

“Don’t point your finger at someone else and try to pass the blame! Hosea 4:4
If you know that what you are doing is wrong and you continue to do it, it is sin...

Some people try to justify sin by saying, "Well, so and so is doing it and nothing has happened to her."

We aren't responsible for other people's actions. We have to do what we know is right for us.

If you find yourself in a situation where you know, without a doubt what the word of God says about it, and you continue to do it.. You are willfully being disobedient and you will not receive a blessing from it. The very thing that you are trying to obtain outside the will of God, will be snatched from you... but if you surrender your own desire for it, and return to God and let him lead you, he will then give you the desires of your heart.

Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart. Psalm 37:4

This is harder to do than speak... We have to take responsibility for our actions and our thoughts... If we think it or speak it or do it, It is then up to us to change it... We will serve something in our life.. We are built to have a sovereign ruler over us, it is the law of nature... We are submitted to something... why not choose God to be that Something... Then everything else will fall into the place that it needs to be... you will have Peace and contentment with the Lord... And only with him.

What do you need to surrender today?

Ask God to reveal it to you...
