Oh To Be Wise Meditations
Lord, I have to stay away from crying wolf in my life. You have given me everything I need for life and godliness yet I stumble into sin so easily. I make excuses and many I am sorries when I need to take responsibility for my actions. Jesus, you have put me in green pastures to restore my soul. There in the blessings you have spoken over me I become lazy in my ways. I cry out wolf when the wolf of this world is no where to be found. It is my own desires that have made me sin, and when sin is finished with me, it leaves me dead.
I do not want blame God when I am tempted. God cannot be tempted by evil, and he doesn't use evil to tempt others. I am tempted by my own desires that drag me off and trap me. Lord forgive me for all the times I try to pass the blame of my mistakes to others. When I cry wolf, I need to stay alert in prayer testing the spirits to know when the enemy is near. Jesus will come with his staff and chase the enemy away. It is true that if I live out too many lies, no one will believe me when I stand up for the truth. I do not want to be a hypocrite always saying that I am going to change. I will cry wolf when evil is near, but when it is not I will take accountability and repent. Thank you Lord for coming out to me to comfort me when I did not deserve it. Even in open sin you were patient with me, giving me space for grace so that I truly learn to live by faith.
