Day 21 – Soul Detox

Isaiah 26:1-11

Devotional

Choose by faith to not put your faith in the “what ifs”, but put your faith in God and God alone. This will help you break free from the bondage of toxic fears.

In what ways are you seeking God on a regular basis?

And excellent question for us to answer today. And as to verses from our Text, I am pondering this one:

10 Even if pity is shown to the wicked,

he still doesn’t learn what righteousness is.

In a land of uprightness he will still act wrongly

and fail to see the majesty of Adonai.

via Isaiah 26:1-11 CJB;NASB – On that day this song will be sung in – Bible Gateway.

Day 22 – Soul Detox

Proverbs 25:26-27

3 John 1:11

Devotional

Our lives are full of cultural toxins, which are those things that are culturally acceptable, but hurt our souls. Cultural toxins can be found in the books we read, the magazines we read, the music we listen to, the television shows we watch, and in the movies we watch. When we allow cultural toxins into our lives, it pollutes us. This week you will learn what God’s Word says about the dangers of cultural toxins and the importance of focusing on things that draw us closer to God.

What are some of the cultural toxins you currently have in your life? How have you seen these toxins pollute your life?

3 John 1:11  Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)

11 Dear friend, don’t imitate the bad, but the good. Those who do what is good are from God; those who do what is bad are not from God.

via Proverbs 25:26-27; 3 John 1:11 CJB;NASB – Like a muddied spring or a polluted – Bible Gateway.

Do not imitate the bad.

Cultural toxins.

Think back to half time – 2013 Super Bowl. Who even in the ‘Christian’ community speaks the name of Beyoncé with admiration? (To tell you the truth – I had to look up her name to write this post and those 3 seconds of the half time I watched I didn’t even know who she was by sight. Not bragging, just stating facts. 🙂  )

Point is this. Christians, beware who you admire; beware who you imitate; beware who you dress like, talk like, live like.

Matthew 7:16 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)

16 You will recognize them by their fruit. Can people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles?

via Matthew 7:16 CJB;NASB – You will recognize them by their fruit. – Bible Gateway.

A Merry Monday to you all!
