Reading Get Out of That Pit by Beth Moore

..for the 2nd time and hopefully she wouldn't get mad at me putting this on my blog because I hope, like me, it might make some sort of difference to someone.

What if you woke up today from the autopilot of poor decisions.
What if before the bottom fell out, you would respond to a voice in the
wilderness saying, "Stop It!"
Isaiah 1:16 "Wash yourselves, make yourselves clean;
Remove the evil of your deeds from My sight.
Cease to do evil. 17-Learn to do good:
Seek justice...
and what if that One Voice- the Only One that matters - was willing to tell you how to stop.

That could happen. In fact, if we were willing to let it, it would happen. God in His tender mercy gives us plenty of warnings enabling us to avoid pits, but the problem with us pit jumpers we don't want to hear - we want what we want.

Motive is huge to God. So is character. Primarily His character, which we are created to emulate.

We cannot fool Him by hiding our inner motive. God looks intently Not only at what we've done but why and how.
