Proverbs 5:21-22”For God sees everything you do and his eyes are wide open as he observes every single habit you have. Beware that your sins don’t overtake you and that the scars of your own conscience don’t become the ropes that tie you up.“
Proverbs 5:21-22 TPT

I have often referenced the ‘self’ mentality that has risen in this generation and its dangers. One of the reasons many young people are struggling with mental health issues, many older people are withering away in home care and not in the hands of those they gave their lives away for is this individualistic mindset satan has permeated in the hearts of people originally designed for community.

There is never a time God has given an instruction that did not involve either help, teaching, mentorship, counsel, guidance from another man (Proverbs 11:14). That is why when you observe every single one of these aspects that people are struggling with greatly in society, it is because they have been detached from the principles set to govern them.

For example, The Bible says give respect to your father and mother for without them you wouldn’t even be here, and do not neglect them when they are old (Proverbs 23:22). Show me a man/woman that has bypassed this principle and I will show you a person who will go through life with strife and struggle.

The realm of the spirit is so patterned and orderly, that God Himself does not go against it for it would put into question His integrity as one who speaks once and speaks truth (2 Timothy 2:13). What else, except evil, would deceive us into thinking that if we, mere mortals, break those same patterns there won’t be any consequences? It is not possible.

Whenever you read scripture child of God, always allow it to mirror to you, in love, areas that may be lacking as a direct consequence of neglecting the principle set prior. I have found it to be most effective than to carve time to break curses that are often times non-existant for you are in Christ — and if any man be in Christ He is free (2 Corinthians 5:17).

Prayer: Father I thank you for this wisdom. As the psalmist put it well, search my heart and know my thoughts, test me and know my concerns. Point out anything that offends you, and lead me along the path of everlasting life, in Jesus’ mighty name. Amen!
