I made haste, and did not delay To keep Your commandments.
It is important for us to respond quickly to the leading and guidance of the Holy Spirit. When the Holy Spirit convicts our heart about an issue we cannot justify our actions. When we justify our actions and compromise, we open the door for access to our lives by the enemy. The whole reason Satan tempts us is to get us to sin so that he can have access to bring destruction into our lives.
The only way we are able to walk in victory over temptations and the desires of the sinful nature is through the power of the Holy Spirit. As we abide daily in the Lord, He will lead us to walk in victory. He will empower us to be witnesses for God’s kingdom. Seeking the Lord and following Him must be the number one priority of our lives. If the only time we fellowship with the Lord is on Sunday morning, we will fail to walk in victory. The more we draw near to the Lord, the more our hunger for Him and His presence increases.
