“For it is because of these things that the wrath of God will come upon the sons of disobedience, and in them you also once walked, when you were living in them” (Colossians 3:6-7).

No matter what people think, or how angry they get, the wrath of God has already been poured out.  As many as believe, to them He gives life.  As many as do not believe, to them wrath will be received.  It is not that God desires this, for we know that the Lord desires that none would perish, but it is as it must be.  Do not walk as a child of wrath, but as a child of the light.

Lord, I do know the difference.  I do know what is right and wrong.  You have written these things upon my heart.  Lead me away from the things that are wrong in order that I may live the good life.  Not the pleasure-loving life this world calls good, but a life that is filled with the fruit of the Spirit and is in accordance with Your will.  Lead me now and forever so that I may walk humbly with You.

Come Holy Spirit and in Your goodness grant that my ears would be open to Your word and my eyes to Your directing.  Help me to see clearly the difference between the way of grace and the way of wrath. Help me not give into the temptations of the flesh, but live according to the goodness and mercy which is mine through Christ my Savior.  Lead me, O Lord, and I shall be saved.  Amen.
