Oh To Be Wise Meditations

There is an eerie feeling right after you have biten into the forbidden fruit. Sin was at your door and it was opened and devoured by body and soul. What was stolen is sweet, and what is obtained in secret is delicious. You even lick your fingers as you fill yourself with evil desire. The Lord said that the day you eat of it you will die but you realize after the fact nothing happened. Sin has opened your eyes and your flesh feels everything. There is an open shame you feel but also a relief that you are not hit with a lightning bolt of judgment. Is the enemy right? Did God tell you not to eat fruit from any tree in the garden? God understands what will happen on the day you eat fruit from that tree. You will see what you have done, and you will know the difference between right and wrong, just as God does. Unfortunately, now that I know the good and bad can I in my own strength choose what is good? I bite into all kinds of things, easily giving my away heart to sin and death. Leaving myself vunerable to the childish games of the enemy. All my efforts to gain wisdom for my life are ruined because of my pride. I hide from God and cover myself with regret. Lord Jesus, come clothe me with your light. Show me what is good to eat and give me the desire to live righteous. Knowing both good and evil is slowing killing my soul. My body bears the sickness of my soul. Even though I am alive I am dead on the inside without Christ. The Lord was right all along, from the day that I eat of forbidden sin, I am the walking dead unless Jesus covers me. Only alive because of the wisdom of God before the foundations of the world. Christ existed before all things, and in union with him all things have their proper place. In Christ we can overcome evil with good. Let us be wise and eat of the fruit Jesus has prepared for us. Meditate Proverbs 3:19
