Sweet nothings sooth, the mind but it does not help the soul. It caters to your ego, your problems, and for some your self-esteem but it does nothing for the soul. If you want to find sweet nothings for your ears go to social networks and look at most of the live videos and listen away. There was a time when you had to attend some of the most popular churches to hear sweet nothings, but now they are all merging to live videos right in the comfort of your home!
Christians stop allowing the world to make you feel like a Pharisee because you quote the scripture. It is the devil’s job in these last and evil days to make the world hate Christians or think Christians are idiots. Yes, there are judgmental people out there. Yes, there are people who quote scriptures and commit the same sin, they are not Christians they are hypocrites (Matthew 15:7). Stop confusing the two. When Jesus confronted the Pharisees, He called them exactly what they were hypocrites. That is not the definition of a Christian.
Sometimes when people face trials they get discourage, make mistakes and often give up. In the midst of it all God can still release His power through us to speak to those dry bones. God taught Ezekiel words carry incredible power. Especially His (God’s) Words! Do you speak to your dry bones so they can live again?
As an adult some people may feel they have complete and udder control of their lives; what they need to know is they will never have total control. If they are saved God has control of their lives if they let him. If they are unsaved, the devil will do everything he can to take over their lives, and when they continue to be unsaved or unholy, he will win.
The lack of self-control can be found in every part of life. No matter what circumstance in which it exists, the shortage of self-discipline always leads to undesirable outcomes. Over spending leads to debt, overeating leads to obesity, lack of exercise leads to poor health, and the list could go on to include the use of drugs, alcohol, sex outside of marriage, deceitfulness and so much more.
