September Daily Devotional 1

Eliminate Excuses

~For the Lord your God walks in the midst of your camp to deliver you and to give up your enemies before you.  Therefore shall your camp be holy, that He may see nothing indecent among you.~ Deut. 23:14

If a habit is controlling you, you will not enjoy the best that God offers you.  Don't make excuses for bondages that seem to have a hold on you. Denial and excuses will keep you from enjoying your life.

Whether is is an eating disorder or a bad temper, you cannot blame it on your genes or your family. God makes a way of escape for us and promises a good life for those who are born again. Claim your rights as a child of God. Say, "I am a new person in Christ; I can do all things through Christ who strengthes me" (see Philippians 4:13)

*Devotion taken from "Starting your day right" by Joyce Meyer*

I believe in the sun even when it is not shining. I believe in love even when I feel it not. I believe in God even when He is silent. *Written on a wall in a concentration camp*

I think you speak much sense, too much of behavoiur is blamed on our genes and parents, we are responsible for our own highs and lows in life . Thanks for sharing.

Take care.

God does not want us out of balance - with habits or anything else.
