SCRIPTURE: “Peter said to him, ‘Aeneas, Jesus Christ heals you! Get up and roll up your sleeping mat!’ And he was healed instantly.” Ac 9:34 NLT
SEE IT: Leave it
JIMISM: 6510. Anything worth doing comes with temptation, resolve and sacrifice. JG
LIVE IT: Tossing or flushing your devices when you state your intention to stop doing something go hand in hand. Most people decide to quit their addiction just to put their paraphernalia where they can find it. Ditching my expensive smoking devices in a field off the interstate fifty years ago didn’t cause me to quit, but it proved my resolve. It didn’t stop me from wanting to go back to that field through the years and recover my “loss.” But doesn’t every statement of faith encounter temptation and require restating your conviction and making another sacrifice?
PRAY IT: Thank You, God, for considering me worth the sacrifice of Your Son.
FIND IT: Condition; Change; Revert
APPLY IT: Don’t make petty promises but double down on the hefty ones.
