We find this warning in the book of Malachi, the full quote from the Amplified Bible is this:
“Therefore keep a watch upon your spirit [that it may be controlled by My Spirit], that you deal not treacherously and faithlessly [with your marriage mate].”
To me, it is very interesting, that we are to keep watch of our spirit, to ensure that it is controlled by God’s Spirit.
Do we wonder why there is so much sexual sin in the world today?
It is because we do not keep a watch on our spirit. we fill our lives with all sorts of filth, from the TV, Internet, magazines, gossip, even the church.
If we are not faithful to our mate, how can we be faithful to God. Faithfulness is something that’s important to all our activities, interactions and beliefs.
We must learn to let God control our spirit. He really does know best and wants the best for us. Before we were saved we thought that serving God was a punishment, as we serve Him we find it to be joy unspeakable and full of glory.
Yes there are times that try men’s souls, but if we turn to God we find the strength and the peace to walk through the valley.
So to my friends that do not yet know the Lord, I ask you, is your life so great that it can’t be improved? Are you so peaceful and trouble-free that you don’t need comfort , love and joy?
If the weight of the world is bringing you down, ask Jesus to come into your life, repent of your sins, turn to God and you will be saved.
If you think you have no sin, take a closer look at your life, do not see anything you’re sorry for? Jesus will forgive you, Jesus will comfort you, Jesus will make you a new person.
All have sinned, and come short of the glory of God, but having Jesus in our lives makes it possible to come to God for forgiveness, mercy and grace.
Thank You Jesus for loving us enough to die on a cross. For my sins. To make me a child of God.
