When you are steadfast, you are immovable; convinced that no matter what comes your way you will not change your mind. I approve of this for I AM unchanging.
My Word is steadfast and it does not change
How many there are that allow sin to remain in their life, convinced that I approve. Their thinking is twisted, for I cannot approve sin. This is the deception that gives them permission to sin, but there is no authority in deception. Deception has no permission to give.
Deception does not give it takes
It robs one of life by weaving a web of lies over their mind and eventually their heart–one lie at a time. With twisted truth deception begins; lie accepted, conception wins.
The heart that began to drift with the mind, hungry for suggestions of a different kind. Restless and lonely they seek to be pleased–an open door for Satan’s tease…
The web is weaved one lie at a time–a woven trap that binds in due time. Pleasure is deceitful, beauty is vain.
But for the heart that remains steadfast–
True freedom it will gain!
“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.” John 10:10
“The simple believes everything, but the prudent looks where he is going. A wise man is cautious and turns away from evil, but a fool throws off restraint and is careless.” Proverbs 14:15-16
“Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am tempted by God”; for God cannot be tempted with evil and he himself tempts no one; but each person is tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own desire. Then desire when it has conceived gives birth to sin; and sin when it is full-grown brings forth death. Do not be deceived, my beloved brethren. Every good endowment and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.” James 1:13-17
I AM here for all things–I AM here to see you through
Look to Me before you leap
Look to Me before you sleep
I will see you through!
“His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence, by which he has granted to us his precious and very great promises, that through these you may escape from the corruption that is in the world because of passion, and become partakers of the divine nature. For this very reason make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with steadfastness, and steadfastness with godliness, and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love. For if these things are yours and abound, they keep you from being ineffective or unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.” II Peter 1:3-8
