Then Nathan said to David, “You are the man! Thus says the Lord God of Israel: ‘I anointed you, king over Israel, and I delivered you from the hand of Saul. I gave you your master’s house and your master’s wives into your keeping and gave you the house of Israel and Judah. And if that had been too little, I also would have given you much more! Why have you despised the commandment of the Lord, to do evil in His sight? You have killed Uriah the Hittite with the sword; you have taken his wife to be your wife, and have killed him with the sword of the people of Ammon.
II Samuel 12:7‭-‬9 NKJV

There is no height anyone has reached in life other than where God has exalted him. There is no achievement or accomplishment anyone can have except what God has enabled and helped him to have. Whatever you have and wherever you have attained in life are purely by divine privilege and by His mercy.

However, there is nothing that is more highly disgusting to God than to see a man that He has graciously raised, divinely established, and strategically blessed using what God has freely given to him for the exploitation of others.

God hates sin with passion even in His people, and wherever He finds it. God’s displeasure for sin will not permit Him to overlook it, He will not suffer His chosen people to remain still in sin, and He will not let sin go unpunished.

Better still, God’s disapproval of sin in His people’s lives is not tantamount to the outright rejection of His people. When a man’s sin has found him, God does not expect such a man to make excuses or make light of his sin but freely takes responsibility for the error.

When sin is acknowledged and sincere confession is made, God also does not hesitate to forgive, forget and restore His presence and glory. The consequences of sin are very grave. Never toil with sin. If you have fallen into sin already, do not stay any longer in it, and do not condemn yourself either. Admit you have sinned, confess and forsake your sin. God will show you mercy and He will not withdraw His presence from you. May the Lord Jesus help you to maximize every privilege He has given you to the glory of His holy name and not for personal pleasure. Good morning.

Your brother,
