Why are we so afraid of the love of the Lord … when you give in to it – it’s VAST and SPECTACULAR and filled with God’s Goody Bag of Blessings – much of which I have tasted. Oh MY how far those blessings reach – to the next generations! Last time I checked, it was the LORD GOD who made US all and Who made the rule book (The BIBLE) for our protection and not for our confinement – When the Lord God forms us from the womb – He is the Chief Executive Officer and we have NO rights outside of His will >>>>> without some hefty consequences of sin – just like any parent that truly loves their child and wants their best – will discipline as needed to teach obedience unto righteousness.
God’s playground is HUGE and blessed regardless of hardships, but none-the-less safer than any way we could choose on our own. It’s all designed out of unthinkable depths of love and adoration that He has for us because He has a plan MUCH BIGGER than our choice to sin. I Corinthians 6:9-11, “Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God. Such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.”
Sounds like divine protection to me …
