We’ve got it all figured out don’t we? Think Again! #Deceived –

There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death (Prov 16:25)~ Think back to a time when your parents gave you an instruction about how to do something, but then you went your own way, knowing what they’ve told you. There may have been times where things “seemed” to work out, but more than likely you can probably remember a consequence that made you kind of regret turning away from what you were told – am I right about it?  It’s certainly bigger than just you and your parents… but that whole rebellious mindset gets us in a LOT of trouble.  The enemy blinds the eyes of unbelievers, causing absurd reasonings in matters of religion. Whether men seek happiness in worldly things, or run into unbelief, superstition, or any false system, they feed on ashes… remnants of that which has been “created”, used and reshaped by man. The ideals of people and society have changed the truth of God into a lie, and people have come to worship and serve their own ways more than the Word of God (Rom 1:25). They have convinced themselves the Bible is foolish, hopelessly outdated, or written by religious fanatics. They love their own thoughts so much they will not accept correction from God nor His ambassadors! A heart deceived by pride, love of sin, and departure from God, turns us aside from His holy truth and worship. It’s gotten so that people hold fast to the ‘lie’ as the best treasure. Today’s  hearts are set upon the wealth of the world and its pleasures. We must be careful to what we hold dear to our heart and soul! If we trust to outward professions and doings, as if those would save us, we deceive ourselves. He feedeth on ashes: a deceived heart hath turned him aside, that he cannot deliver his soul, nor say, Is there not a lie in my right hand? (Isa 44:20)

Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Lord, and depart from evil (Prov 3:7)
