Don’t Do It

By John Howell / last week

I started to do it. Then came God’s voice. The Spirit of God living inside me. Telling me NO. Telling me what would be the negative consequences of the action I was about to take. Then my flesh responded. I would do it anyway. I wanted to. I had the right to make up my own mind. I could handle the consequences. But no sooner than I started in the direction the Lord told me not to go than I felt His hand from heaven restrain me. Hold me back. Keep me from going where I was headed. In the wrong direction.

By John Howell / a couple of weeks ago

Sometimes, friend, when our circumstances are a certain way, or we face certain challenges, or God clearly wants us to take certain opportunities, or He wants us to change course in a big way or even a small one, or He compels us to make certain decisions, or calls us to go in a certain direction and not another one, or He tells us it’s time to let something or someone go, we expect an explanation from God.
