Turn Away From Self-Destruction

“There is a way that appears to be right, but in the end it leads to death.” – Proverbs 14:12 NIV

I wrote this piece a year ago and I have recently heard two teachings regarding ‘Self-destruction’, and it brought me back to my notes. I meditated on it and I knew that this was something that I had to share.

“Sometimes we build our own destruction.

I read a post that someone shared on Facebook and the entire message was about self-proclaiming and at the bottom it had a scripture quoted from the Bible. I closed my Facebook App and as I got ready for work I heard a loud voice saying: ‘Destruction’.

I immediately took out my phone and started making notes.

Sometimes we are so busy building this throne for ourselves that we lose sight of the ultimate goal and reason why we are children of the light.

I realize that we do not have much time left. We do not have time left to be self-focused and not God-focused.

We need to be so careful about the people we give access to in our lives. We need to use a deeper discernment, because the devil comes in disguised as an angel. It looks and feels like it is from God but in the end it is leading us to destruction and death.

The devil will have us at a place where we turn away from those who are trying to help us, but we turn our way to those who are out to leach on us and suck everything good out of us.

I cannot say this enough, but we are living in the last days. Many will be deceived and many will try to deceive us.

We should not sabotage or infect our spirit by being in places where God does not want us to be in or where God took us out from long already. Many times it is not God who got us into that place but it was our own choice to be there.

We need to stop running at our own pace and not at God’s pace. Christianity is not a competition, so we should not live as if we need to show off to everyone that we can get to the top first.

As we are running this race, we need to stop for a minute and examine ourselves and our way of thinking. Are we really living for God? Or are we living to please others? Are we spirit-led or ego-led?

Turn away from self-destruction.”
