The Light Daily Devotional – How to Avoid Getting into Trouble

Focus: How to Avoid Getting into Trouble

WORD FOR TODAY

Obedience to God, come what may, is the only sure way to stay away from trouble. Taking the place of God in the lives of men is a sure way to look for trouble!

Scriptural Reference

“Then the anger of the LORD was aroused against Uzzah, and God struck him there for his error; and he died there by the ark of God.”(2 Samuel 6:7 NKJV)

God is self-sufficient; hence, He does not need men to be the God He is. In every situation you find yourself or the situation of people around you, don’t help God but do what He tells you. Uzzah tries to help God in a way contrary to His instructions and he pays with his life.

Some people influence other men and young people to make a critical choice with respect to marriage, career, ministry, business and their spiritual life. No man will ever forget the one who misled him to an unfortunate path in life and such will not be innocent before God.

The primary duty of every man in ministry is to bring men to God; teaching them to know and hear from Him. Even though we are expected to be an extended hand of God reaching out to men, the fact remains that we are not expected to be God in their lives. 

Putting yourself in the place of God either to provide or to pass definite instructions is to put yourself into serious trouble. The issues in the life of a man are bigger than what another can carry. To help men and stay out of trouble, lead them to God the creator and designer of every man’s destiny.

+ Do you obey God?

Lord! I will obey you always and stay out of trouble in Jesus’ name. Amen!

Emphasis: Obedience to God is the most important strategy required to stay out of trouble!

Have a Blessed Wednesday!
