You Rebel You!

The Lord our God is merciful and forgiving, even though we have rebelled against Him. 
Daniel 9:9

Rebellion is not a good thing when it comes to we humans rebelling against God. Now rebellion can be a good thing when it means to rebel against a evil government. For the purposes of this writing it deals with we mere humans acting like we know more than God. Does Adam and Eve ring a bell?

Being rebellious is not a fruit of the spirit. It can often be a demonic influence. God hates rebellion against His authority. A person can be hard hearted and think they don't need God and in a sense that is displaying a rebellious attitude. 1 Samuel 15:23 says it is "as the sin of witchcraft" and I say "ouch" to that. 

How many of you reading have had rebellious children? Perhaps a spouse at times may have acted  in a rebellious way. Criminals rebel against police authority meant to keep us safe. Don't be a rebel. Turn from wickedness of any form and seek God continually.

PRAYER: Oh Lord your commands are meant for our good. Forgive me if I have ever rebelled against you in any way by sinning against you. In Jesus' name. Amen.
