Are You In The Right Place? (Chinese/English)

Are you in the right place?

2 Samuel 11:2-3 And it came to pass in an evening tide, that David arose from off his bed and walked upon the roof of the king’s house:  and from the roof he saw a woman washing herself; and the woman was very beautiful to look upon.  And David sent and enquired after the woman. And one said, Is not this Bathsheba, the daughter of Eliam, the wife of Uriah the Hittite?

David usually made a point of asking the Lord about everything. So why didn’t he enquire of the Lord here? Probably because David wasn’t in the place where he should have been. Amen?

When we aren’t at the place that we should be with God. Then we are more liable to fall into sin and to leave ourselves wide open to temptation.  David was a king, and so he had probably faced this temptation before, but victory in the past, was no defense to Him.

Whatever victories we have had in the past, this will not guarantee victory in the future. We must die to self and to crucify the flesh daily to be victorious. Amen

These verses should act as a warning to us.  David knew who Bathsheba was, and still, he went and enquired after her.

How often do we know that something is wrong for us to do? But do we still enquire after it?

We fall into sin so often because we make the wrong choices, we know the right thing to do, but we don’t do them. Amen

We need to feed on the word of God and pray at all times.  Also, we need to discipline our minds. David’s sin, started with laziness but continued with a look.

Then he took action; this is the same for us; inactivity brings laziness, which leads to us looking at things we shouldn’t do, which leads to us taking wrong actions.

Let us not be lazy in reading the word and prayer and serving God. Let us not be one of the ones who is walking the rooftops instead of fighting the enemy.让我们在阅读圣经、祷告和事奉上帝方面不要懒惰。让我们不要成为那些正走在屋顶上而不是与敌人作战的人们中的一员。

God Bless you
