WARNINGS


On a recent hike at a nearby state park there are dangerous cliffs and
warning signs are posted. Some read "Stay On Marked Trails".
Another says "Caution: High Bluffs". When I lived in Arizona, out in
the desert where it was mostly dry, an occasional downpour, called a
monsoon, would cause otherwise dry riverbeds to flood. Caution signs
would read "Flash Flood Area". In Northern Arizona, at the Grand
Canyon ,warning signs reminded tourists "Do Not Cross Barriers" . I hear an average of
five tourists a year plunge to their death by not heeding this warning
in order to step across the barrier for a better picture.
God provides many warnings in His word, the Holy Bible, if only we
would realize they are for our own good. Sin is very tempting. Satan
makes it that way. In Exodus 20 are ten "warnings" referred to as The
Ten Commandments. If you follow them you should be able to stay out of
trouble. We are warned about not having a "mouth problem" or in other
words talking too much and saying the wrong things. (See Proverbs
10:19). .

We are warned about the wrong kind of friends in 1 Corinthians
15:33(NIV). Proverbs 23:29-35 warns us about the dangers of too much
alcohol. Proverbs 6(Read it) warns about the dangers of "loose women"
and staying on the right path. Proverbs 1:10(NIV) warns against those
who knowingly sin when it says 'My son if sinners entice you, do not
follow them.' These are just a sampling of the many warnings within
the pages of the Bible.

If you listen to God He will keep you safe. John 15:7( NIV) tells us
'If you abide in me and my word abides in you, you can ask whatever
you wish and it will be done to you.'

Who are you following? Are you listening to the warnings of the still
small voice inside of you? Isaiah 30:21(NIV) says 'whether you turn to
the right or to the left , your ears will hear a voice behind you
saying, This is the way, Walk in it.'

Start today to make up your mind you will tune out Satan and tune into
God and live for Him.

PRAYER: Father I thank you that you are my Abba father, Daddy. Just
like an earthly daddy gives warnings to protect us from harm, you too
provide those through scripture. Forgive me when I have allowed Satan
to tempt me and lead me off the path of righteousness. In Jesus' name.
Amen.
