Who Or What Is Influencing You?

“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” Romans 12:2

Chances are if you are reading this you more than likely are being influenced to walk in the spirit so you do not fulfill the desires of the flesh. But I am sure we all know people, some very close to us, who may have become tired of Christian things for whatever reason. A heart broken mother yearns for her child to return to the faith and passion he or she once had. On the other hand there are those who may go to church for one hour but that is quite enough. Both of these cases above lead you in the wrong direction and that is away from the Lord. 

You become like what you saturate yourself with. Our enemy Satan,  lies to many people making them accept lies as truth. It is not all just about church but about much more. It is about having a personal relationship with Jesus. There may be those people out there who have this personal relationship and at one time asked Jesus to be Lord but then something led them away from their original passion for things of the Lord.  If a person is not careful it is very easy to get conformed to 'this world' and be taken away from things of the Lord. 

If you are wandering away from the Lord first stop and pray God would relight your spiritual fire. Next stay in places you know will lift you up and not drag you into a pit.  Know that the pleasures of this world are fleeting and only what is done for Christ will last.  Continue to pray for whoever it is you know who has lost their way. God hears and can restore. 

PRAYER: I pray for those people who have been distracted by this world and lied to by Satan that they would be restored to their first love or find Him for the first time. In Jesus' name. Amen.
