Have you ever noticed that some the most damaging and harmful products that are advertised are made to look the best and the most appealing? After watching a television commercial or seeing an advertisement in a magazine, we are left thinking about the product and wanting the product. In fact, it has been said that some industries have made billions by getting people “convinced” that they cannot live without their product. While a product may look appealing to us, it doesn’t always mean that it is good for us.
In Jeremiah 42:21-22 it states, “21 And I have this day declared it to you, but you have not obeyed the voice of the Lord your God, or anything which He has sent you by me. 22 Now therefore, know certainly that you shall die by the sword, by famine, and by pestilence in the place where you desire to go to dwell.”
There are many things, people and places that the enemy will convince us are “good for us”. But, be careful. Not all that we will desire will be good. Not all that we desire will be healthy. If what you desire causes you to disobey the Lord, then it is not good for you. We should all desire to dwell in the Lord’s will, not outside of His will.
I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
