Oh Lord, I pray that people will no longer harden their hearts against You. So many people in the world we live in are living for the flesh instead of Your will. Sin is abiding in people’s lives instead of people living for Your holiness. Cuss words are often used uncontrollably, while lustful and covetous thoughts are on full display. Instead of cutting off things out of people’s lives like pornography, alcohol, drugs, and bad influences, people are continuing to give in to these things like it doesn’t matter. What does this say? It says that not everyone who calls You Lord is actually a genuine believer. How many real Christians are out there that love Your ways and hate the sinful things of this world? I will never know. All I know, God, is that this number is smaller than I ever thought. I am happy that I cannot see how people are thinking and acting when they are outside the doors of their church building, for I would be very much upset and depressed by what I am seeing. But You, Lord, do this and much more. So many people must be quenching the Spirit and not even realizing it. But God, make a way for many more people to escape the evils of this world, in order to find You and be saved. I love You, God. Amen.
Exodus 8:16-19 (KJV)
16 And the Lord said unto Moses, Say unto Aaron, Stretch out thy rod, and smite the dust of the land, that it may become lice throughout all the land of Egypt.
17 And they did so; for Aaron stretched out his hand with his rod, and smote the dust of the earth, and it became lice in man, and in beast; all the dust of the land became lice throughout all the land of Egypt.
18 And the magicians did so with their enchantments to bring forth lice, but they could not: so there were lice upon man, and upon beast.
19 Then the magicians said unto Pharaoh, This is the finger of God: and Pharaoh’s heart was hardened, and he hearkened not unto them; as the Lord had said.
It is not worth hardening your heart against God. Instead, let Him in and begin to do His will for Your life.
