The devil get the blame even when he is not involved,while others blame God. But the truth is you are responsible for your own actions.Most people hate to admit when they are wrong when they mess up. Of course we are humans we don’t like to take the blame, we prefer to blame someone else because it’s easier and it justifies our error, our faults, and our mistakes. Some folks even dress up or pretty up the problem so it looks like the other person is totally wrong and they themselves are right. But hold up, wait a minute, examine yourself look in the mirror, put on the belt of truth, is your conscience really free? Could you have changed anything? or done things different?
How many times have you blamed others for your mistakes, for the choices you make, or for the decisions you stand by, knowing you were wrong. Then you turn around and blame your parents, your spouse, your family, the devil, and you even have the audacity of blaming God, and asking Him why He made it happen or didn’t stop you? If you are in the same predicament or position you were in a year or more ago, even last month, what have you done to change it?So why are you blaming someone else? Examine yourself! Were you tempted? Did you yield to temptation or run from it? So blame yourself not others for the consequences of your decisions.
“So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don’t fall! No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.” (1 Corinthians 10:12-13 New International Version). So examine yourself! Did you ignore or reject your way of escape?
God wants you to stop blaming others, and start examining yourself, your lifestyle, your decisions and choices. Look in the mirror at yourself and apply the truth from the word of God, which is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, and will pierce even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart; and there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account (Hebrews 4:12-13). This is the only way you can examine yourself, because God’s word never lies. That’s the only way to flush the devil out of your life and be purified and sanctified, by start confessing and seeking forgiveness from God. It’s better for you to realize that you messed up and confess, than allowing the devil to accuse you before God, and God has to send someone to tell you; like David when he messed up with Bathsheba and God sent Nathan the prophet to tell him of his sins(2 Samuel 12:1-13). Even though David confessed and asked for and received forgiveness, he was severely punished. How many of us could avoid punishment if we only obey God’s word. Examine yourself and don’t allow God to send someone to tell you.
When we examine ourselves it is then you can see if you love God or not. Do you love Him? Are you living for Him? If you have put yourself before God then you love yourself more than you love Him, and that’s a problem. Do you know who God is? Well let me introduce you to Him through His only begotten son Jesus the Christ. Just go to the top of this blog, then click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions. Examine yourself and make a change for the better. But don’t stop there, find a Bible believing, God-fearing church who will help you grow in the knowledge of God.
May God give you the spiritual guidance you need to make the right decisions according to His will, from now on, and to examine yourself, and apply His word of truth in Jesus name, Amen.
Now unto Him who is able to keep us from falling, and to present us faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy; To the Immortal, Invisible, and only wise God be the glory, praise, honor, and thanks for using me, to bring His message to you in Jesus name. Amen.
