Honest to God

Michael Beck

“Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked” (Revelation 3:17)

We say, “I’m alright,” when we’re not. We say, “It doesn’t matter,” when it does. We say, “I don’t care,” when we do.

While we shouldn’t necessarily wear our heart on our sleeve before men, we do need to be honest before God. Don’t be in denial before Him. You may be able to seem okay before men, but God knows the “hits” you have taken and the affect they have had on you.

You can’t do this thing called life without all the help God would give you. Before you get strong you have to acknowledge you’re weak. Before you’re an overcomer you have to admit you’re overcome. The only thing that’s keeping you from getting well is your failure to get to the Great Physician. Make an appointment ASAP.
