Cut off from their people, death, burned in fire, stoning, blood on their own heads. Reading Leviticus 20 really drives the point home that God detests sin … and the penalty for it is steep.
Sometimes the sin that wells up in me strikes before I have time to weigh the cost. Some days I feel smothered. Other days just sickened. A lot of times, frustrated. All my work trying to figure this out, my efforts so very weak and human.
The troubles of my heart have multiplied;
free me from my anguish. Psalm 25:17
Hope comes from a savior. From one who has paid the price. When will I stop relying on myself for solutions?
My eyes are ever on the LORD,
for only he will release my feet from the snare. Psalm 25:15
My heart fixed heavenward today, my eyes ever on the Lord, for guidance, instruction, forgiveness, mercy and love.
