Separation for the Headstrong

 

“You gave them bread from heaven for their hunger,

And brought them water out of the rock for their thirst,

And told them to go in to possess the land

Which You had sworn to give them.

But they and our fathers acted proudly,

Hardened their necks,

And did not heed Your commandments.”

Nehemiah 9:15-16 [NKJV]

 

He who walks in up-righteousness fears the Lord.

But He who is perverse in his ways despises Him.

When you act wickedly, when you are head strong, you are in actuality, despising what God is saying.

No matter how much God is speaking, by refusing to budge, by choosing to remain stubborn and unmovable, you show contempt for Him.


Allow God to work in you and to break you.

He has a great plan for your life.

An upright person walks in the fear of God.

They who have the fear of the Lord will abide in sanctification.

They will be justified, washed in the love of Christ.

They will be satisfied and happy (blessed).

 

“Light is sown for the righteous,

And gladness for the upright in heart.”

Psalm 97:11 [NKJV]
