If It Feels Good, Do It

Today's Scripture

In those days Israel had no king; all the people did whatever seemed right in
their own eyes. Judges 21:25 NLT

Thoughts for Today

During this period in Israel's history, the people were inconsistent in
following God. With no central vision of God's laws and statutes, "all the people did whatever seemed right in their own eyes." The result? Social disorder… sin.

We could use this same phrase to describe today's society. Masses of people are doing whatever seems right in their own eyes. "If it feels good, do it" has become a common mantra.

Consider this …

An "if it feels good, do it" attitude does not result in peace. It results in chaos, selfishness, strife, and all manner of sin. If our world is to find peace, it must turn to Yahweh-Shalom.

And if we as individuals want to find inner peace, we will find it only in the Lord. By choosing his way instead of ours. By submitting to his commands instead of our feelings. By choosing to do what is right in his eyes, not ours.

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, Help me not to be ruled by my own desires and feelings. Help me to seek your will in every area of my life. Help me to choose what is right, not what feels good. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Saturday and God Bless you.
