God gave me His commandments, laws and statutes so that I could have some boundaries to keep me from straying away from Him. Unfortunately, there was something in me that had a propensity to disobey what I was told.
As a result, my curiosity and inquisitiveness attracted me to things on the other side of the perimeter the Lord set for me. When I crossed the line, it did not take very long before I started feeling the pain of my rebellion and began to experience misery and suffering.
I am grateful that the anguish and despair I eventually felt became unbearable so I needed to seek help. I thank God for sending me a messenger of the gospel who was able to use His law as a teacher to show me the way to Calvary where I discovered His mercy and grace. Now I am a personal witness of His transforming power.
I pray He will lead me to others who are experiencing hardship and torment. Then I can point them to the cross of Jesus Christ so that they can find freedom to abide in Him.
