"Don't Depend On The Arm of The Flesh" from 1 Chronicles 21

David at this moment is slowly not trusting God, but trusting in his armies.

Don't depend on the arms of the flesh and have a complete trust on God. Don't listen to the voice of Satan.

When David desire to number or count the Israelites to know how great or many his armies, this is the beginning of his pride. Sometimes if we begin to have pride in our heart this also opens the door to Satan's voice

Most of the times people want to please man rather than God.

Intelligence is like the river the deeper it is the less noise.

In 1 Chronicles 21:6-7 But Joab did not include Levi and Benjamin in the numbering, because the king's command was repulsive to him. This command was also evil in the sight of God; so he punished Israel.

God punished the Israelites.

Pride goes before destruction.

Proverbs 19:22 What a man desires is unfailing love; better to be poor than a liar.

People around you will be affected by your sin. We can't say that when we sin "nobody will get affected" as Christians we need to have that genuine faith. Remember the story of Jesus about the pharasees as he prayed "Lord, I am not like the other people as I fast twice a week and read the Bible everyday . . ."
but the tax collector prayed "God have mercy on me a sinner."

Though how many times we prayed and God enero't answer you prayer maybe God is telling you to be humble. As Christians remember we are saved by grace and grace alone.

Without praying it is our pride speaking. God commandment was to pray without ceasing.

Deuteronomy 16:17 Each of you must bring a gift in proportion to the way the Lord your God has blessed you.

The attitude of David as he realize his sins and he listen to God and finally repented.




Nice Christian Life Experiences
