Every time we sin we are turning our back on God. We may feel as though God is ignoring us but it’s us denying Him. Whenever I turn to God so that I won’t sin and bury my face in His words I am triumphant. When I blatantly sin then I am turning my back on Him. If you are anything like me, instant gratification is a pitfall. The devil knows this and plays on that weakness. The desires of our hearts can be evil. Take Eve, for instance, she and Adam had everything they needed in the garden but she wanted more and the devil played on that weakness. She bit into the sinful fruit and then shared it with Adam. Not only did Eve sin but lured poor Adam down with her. Often times our sin feels better with someone else dragged into it. ” Misery loves company.” The Bible says in Matthew 18:6 But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to stumble, it would be better for him to have a heavy Millstone hung around his neck, and to be drowned in the depths of the sea. If we are making others stumble in our walk then it is against God and we are not truly walking with him. A lot of times we don’t even know that we are doing this, so it is extremely important to think before we speak and act. We need to take everything to God because we don’t know who may be listening or watching our behavior. We need to be prayerfully walking with God so that we don’t stumble or cause others to.
