When Conviction Calls us to Clear the Stage

CONVICTION.

It’s this thing that happens when God whispers in our ear and shows us that we are doing/thinking/believing something that is wrong and against him.

CONVICTION.

It’s the in-your-face, uncomfortable, or painful assurance that we must change.

CONVICTION.

It’s often fleeting. It comes when we are attentive and it leaves just as quickly if we dismiss it.

CONVICTION.

It’s the demonstration of the mercy and love of God, telling us to repent and change our ways. If we follow it, we learn and change. If we ignore it, we harden and miss a great opportunity of growth.

CONVICTION.

It’s a good, good thing. Therefore, we must not try to avoid it nor rescue our loved ones from it.

LISTEN TO GOD.

BELIEVE HIS WORD.

WHAT IS RIGHT IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN WHAT MAKES US HAPPY.

CRY AND GRIEVE AND MOURN OVER SIN, IF NEEDED. IT’S OK TO BE UNCOMFORTABLE.

REPENT AND TRUST GOD’S GUIDANCE.

THE END RESULT IS WORTH IT, BECAUSE GOD IS FAITHFUL AND GOOD, AND HE WANTS THE BEST FOR YOU/ME.

TRUE JOY WILL COME AS A RESULT OF FOLLOWING GOD.

Now internalize the words of this song….
