Everything Is Not Beneficial

Throughout The Journey with GOD, I’ve found myself having to do certain things, even when I did not prefer them. For example: I enjoyed thinking about whatever I wanted to consider, but after grieving GOD with my unholy thoughts (and being convicted on numerous occasions), I had to renew my mind (Ephesians 4:22-24) in order to diminish the endless insults towards GOD (so could enjoy HIS PEACE of unbroken fellowship). It was much work, but the end result was much success. For now, the problem ceases to be (in existence).

The Bible states, “that everything is permissible, but not everything is beneficial
(1 Corinthians 10:23)”. Sounds like we can do almost anything, until we get to the clause (but). What it really says is that everything is our decision alone; however the choices we make can have consequences that will not benefit us at all. For years, I wondered why GOD allowed me to sin, but Matthew 21:33 explains that GOD gave each of us a free will (HE will never violate our free will, Romans 1:24), yet Exodus 34:6-7; Job 10:14 & Nahum 1:3 says that “no sin shall go unpunished.” In fact, out of everything GOD has created, only humans can decide rather to obey GOD (by allowing HIS WAY to take precedence) or alternatively disobey HIM (by choosing any other way of living our lives). Actually, if the rest of HIS creation continues to obey HIM (of which they cannot afford to say no), they will continue to have GOD as their only reward. However, if they ever become unwilling, they will suffer the loss of loosing GOD forever (2 Peter 2:4). That’s why it’s extremely important for us to pay close attention to everything that pertains to our lives, Proverbs 4:23. “For we too shall reap what we have sown (eventually, Galatians 6:7-8).”

Hint: whenever we choose GODS’ WAY over our own interests and the opinions (persuasion) of others, this is GODS’ WILL for our lives.
