• “In the darkest of nights cling to the assurance that God loves you, that He always has advice for you, a path that you can tread and a solution to your problem–and you will experience that which you believe. God never disappoints anyone who places his trust in Him.” – Basilea Schlink

Sin Will Disappoint You by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 03/05/12

“I thought that by taking our relationship to another level, you know, physically, my boyfriend and I would be closer. But sleeping together has just caused more problems—a lot more!”

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: We think wrong choices will make us happy, but sin never pays what it promises us. It might yield some pleasure, but Hebrews 11 refers to it as “fleeting pleasure.”

“I thought I’d be the life of the party. Now I’m spending all my time in a recovery program.”

Nancy: We all know what it’s like to sinfully indulge our flesh, hoping for some kind of relief or emotional thrill. But when it’s over, we don’t usually look back and say, “Wow, that was sure worth it!” If we’re honest we’d have to say, “That brief pleasure wasn’t worth the price I paid to get it.”

Sinful pleasures just don’t last. We need to remember that when we face temptation. Instead, trust God’s Word when He promises to reward faithfulness.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

Verse of the Day

No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it. — 1 Corinthians 10:13 (NKJV)
