This is your B moment. Your moment to be still…to be fed by the Word of God…to be grateful.
Scripture reference: Proverbs 3:5-6 (KJV)
Today I am reminding you about the slippery slope of a divided heart.
A divided heart occurs when you seek God’s will one day and yours the next. Recently I shared how I had been consumed with the election results for an entire week. When I finally came up for air, I was feeling guilty because I had been missing my morning prayer time. In just one week’s time, I had begun to prioritize getting the latest election results over my morning prayer time.
Solomon also began to live his life on this slippery slope before his heart became divided. Solomon’s first downfall came when he allowed the influences of this world to pull him further and further away from God. His next downfall came when he wanted things both ways. He did things God’s way one day and his way the next.
We know that Solomon had a weakness for women, which led him to marry many foreign women. God warned Solomon about this because the foreign women worshiped other gods. It wasn’t long before Solomon joined his wives in worshiping these other gods, which ultimately led to Solomon’s undoing.
Is your heart conflicted today? Are you doing what God asked you to do one day and doing what you desire the next? As you think about that, remember these words: “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6 (KJV)
