Husband and Wife Half Truths Lead To Potential Disaster

Genesis 20:1-17

This post is about Abraham and Sarah’s half truths that impacted the life of people in a negative manner.

Points to Ponder

  1. God will continue to guide and protect us on our life’s journey (Genesis 20:1).
  2. There are times when knowledge can lead us to make wrong choices (Genesis 20:2).
  3. When a half truth is told, it can severely impact the lives of others (Genesis 20:3).
  4. God will reveal to the innocent the wrong choices they have made (Genesis 20:4-6).
  5. There are times when God must put fear in our lives for us to change (Genesis 20:7).
  6. When someone inflicts pain upon you, seek answers with a pure heart as you communicate with them (Genesis 20:8-10).
  7. We must communicate to others that our wrong choices could negatively impact their way of life (Genesis 20:8).
  8. There are times when we will try to justify half truth but it’s still wrong. (Genesis 20:11-13).
  9. God uses others to bless us and give us the power to intercede for others (Genesis 20:14-17).

Something to Consider

 As we travel our life’s journey, we will face Godly people, good and bad people. When we fellowship with them, we must communicate the truth because half truths could negatively impact the people you encounter.  Every husband and wife should always consider how their actions will impact their family and others.  Abraham and Sarah’s fear about what might happen clouded their judgment. The husband and wife took their eyes off the promises. God promised them that they would have a son and they would be a blessing to all nations. They knew God was with them yet fear consumed them. When confronted by Abimelech, Abraham confessed the reasons he lied which was good because it limited the negative consequences.

We often speak half truths because of fear, unknown consequences and because we hate to disappoint others.  Half truth leads to greater pain and suffering.  God looks upon our hearts to determine our motives for half truths to activate his grace and mercy for believers and nonbelievers.  God wants us to speak the truth because it gives us great peace.  Husbands and wives, if you are struggling with half truths in your life, please let go of those half truths.  A husband and wife should always set the standards by speaking the truth which will positively impact their family and the world.  

To every husband and wife in the world,  you must rely on God’s words to guide your tongue. When every husband and wife relies on the Word of God, they will no longer be ruled by fear. God loves you more than you will ever comprehend. God created every husband and wife in His image which means you are connected to God in a very special manner. Trust God to guide and protect you along your life journey. God will always be there for you and God will empower you with the strength to speak the truth. Stand firm with God as you encounter various types of people in the world.

Forgive

This updated post focuses on how important it is for you to forgive those that hurt you to the core of your heart.  When you forgive, it will help you to maintain your Faith. It will give you strength to overcome Obstacles. It gives you the ability to Repent when you are wrong. It guides you closer to God and it will prevent an Infection of hatred from flourishing in your life.  When you forgive, you will also have Victory over your own life without others influencing you in a negative manner. It will keep you from giving in to Evil because of the pain you suffered from someone.

F.O.R.G.I.V.E (Faith, Obstacles, Repent, God, Infection, Victory, Evil)

Joseph’s rejection and forgiveness (Genesis 37:1-11, 50:15-20)

Solomon’s Prayer (1 Kings 8:46-50)

Jesus’ commands (Matthew 6:14-15, Mark 11:25-26, Luke 17:3-4, Ephesians 4:26-27)

Points to Ponder

  1. You must let go of the bitterness you have toward those who have hurt you (Genesis 50:15-17).
  2. Do not hold grudges against those that are jealous of you but forgive them and you will have joy in your life (Genesis 50:18-20).
  3. You must forgive people who sin against you just like you expect God to forgive you (1 King 8:50).
  4. If you don’t forgive people who violated your trust, God will not forgive you (Matthew 6:14-15, Mark 11:25-26).
  5. It is your responsibility as a Christian to forgive people regardless of the number of times they have hurt you (Luke 17:3-4).

Something to Consider

Is there someone in your life that has hurt you to the core of your heart? Your answer is probably yes! You are so angry with them because you don’t understand why someone who claims to love you would hurt you so badly. You might blame yourself or wonder what you did to deserve a broken-heart.

Life is very complex and challenging. However, we all fall short of the glory of God because of our sinful nature. It’s sin that caused an individual to hurt you. Just like it was sin that caused Jesus to suffer and die on the cross for you. He also died for the person that broke your heart and violated your trust. God holds each of us accountable for our own sins.

God  gives you a simple process for healing your broken heart. He wants you to rely on Christ as the source of your strength. Your healing process will begin when you forgive the person or persons that hurt your heart. It will not be easy but when you let go you will find wonderful peace in your life. When you forgive, you are no longer in bondage but free. Enjoy your freedom, starting today, as you forgive those who have hurt you. Remember! You can’t rely on others to heal your broken heart only God can.

Daughters Committed Incest With Their Father

This bible study focuses on the wrong choices a father made and the impact it had on his family especially his daughters.

(Genesis 19:30-38)

Points to Ponder

 

  1. Wrong choices can lead the family in the wrong direction (Genesis19:30).
  2. You must take time to reflect on your circumstances in order to make the right decisions (Genesis19:30).
  3. Making too many wrong choices can lead to fear, stress, and emotional disaster (Genesis19:31).
  4. There are individuals that occasionally engage in sinful actions to justify preserving their family which leads to disaster and disrespect of the Word of God (Genesis19:32).
  5. Thinking in a reactive mode can at times, be very dangerous (Genesis19:33-35).
  6. Drinking too much alcohol reduces your ability to remain in self-control and others can take advantage of you without your knowledge (Genesis19:35).
  7. You  must avoid listening to a family member when they are out of the will of God (Genesis19:35).
  8. Incestuous relationships (sexual immorality) can only lead to conflict within the family (Genesis19:36-38).
  9. There are people who will use deception (in order to preserve their family line) and try to get you to participate in their ungodly way. Sadly to say they do believe they are right (Genesis19:32).
  10. Getting drunk and using illegal drugs are poor examples for you and your family. As a father or mother, you  must model Godly standards for your children (Genesis19:30-36)

 Something to Consider

The people you are close to may willfully make wrong choices because they believe it will benefit the family. Lot’s daughters believed incest with their father was the best thing to do to preserve their family line. History shows they were absolutely wrong. They used deceptive methods to sleep with their father by getting him drunk.

There are people in your life that will also use deceptive ways to convince you to make wrong choices. Your choices must always be based on Godly principles which might isolate you from friends and families. Yet you must not fear the isolation because of the right choices you made because God will be pleased with your actions.

You must pray and solicit counsel from others to assist you when your family situation appears to be hopeless. If you stand for truth, you can potentially prevent disaster from falling upon your family and the world. Incest in the family is very damaging to the life of an individual. Lot’s daughters made a wrong choice by sleeping with their father while he was drunk. Incest is not the answer to solving life problems. You must never engage in an incestuous relationship to fulfill your selfish desires. You will destroy your relationships with the family and others around you.

Fathers, and daughters, you must think about the consequences of your actions. Always reflect and meditate on the situation when your mind is engaged in ungodly thoughts. You must always apply God’s words in the decisions you make.  God will always provide your needs because He said He would.  God’s blessings are greater than what you can provide for yourself. God is watching over you every day seeking to protect and guide you.  All you need to do is submit your will to God. May your family be filled with contentment and joy while they live on earth.
