 Did you give God a thought?

I believe today God is asking us a question through the prophet Isaiah: "Of whom were you worried and fearful when you lied, and did not remember Me nor give Me a thought?" (Isaiah 57:11)

It's amazing how absent-minded we can all be. It's amazing how numb our conscience's can be. We can be so absent-minded and our conscience's so numb that when we are faced with the temptation to sin, we don't even pause for one moment and reconsider the action we are getting ready to commit. If God does not even enter into your thought process when you are faced with the temptation to sin, then I wonder in what sense are you being tempted? Instead of experiencing a few road bumps along the road of sin, you instead find yourself speeding all the faster to your destination.

Ask yourself, do you even give God a thought before you lie? Do you even give God a thought before you watch pornography? Do you even give God a thought before getting drunk? Do you even give God a thought before going too far with a member of the opposite sex?

There are two types of atheist in the world. The first type of atheist foolishly denies the possibility that there is even a God. The second type of atheist is one that while he believes there is a God, he lives as if God doesn't exist. He lives as if he will never have to stand before God and give an account for his life, and the actions that he did. I submit to you today that this is how many live their lives. Yet do not doubt it whatsoever, we will all have to one day stand before Jesus Christ and give an account for the things we did in this life. No matter how big, no matter how small, everything will be judged, including even "every careless word." (Matthew 12:36)

If you should realize you are often living as if there is no God, today you need to begin to seek God, and make it your regular prayer that you would be sensitive to His Spirit throughout the day. Seek to live in a constant awareness of God every moment of your day, so that the moment you are faced with a temptation, that you might call upon Him for strength to resist the Devil and not sin.
