May the 4th be with You
There is a Dark Side that fights against the Light of God. God is looking for you to be true to Him and to be a rebel for His kingdom!
1 Corinthians 16:13 tells you to "Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong." There is a real fight dark force in our world and believers are to be the resistance.
Little Anakin in Star Wars had a bright future for good. Many people believed in him, and he was destined to do great things. Unfortunately, he tried to do things on his own and in doing so, he turned to the dark side. We shouldn't be too surprised about his actions because we all get caught up in trying to figure things out on our own.
The first humans ever created made the same mistake. Adam and Eve had a bright future for good, God believed in them, they were destined to do great things, and then they messed up! They made the decision to do the one thing God told them not to do. And then, as always, consequences followed.
There will always be that temptation to do things your way, but we must be on guard. It's a daily decision to stand firm in the faith by being courageous and strong in every choice. Thankfully, the Lord has given believers the gift of the Holy Spirit to direct paths, convict of sinfulness, and align a healthy relationship with Jesus Christ.
Trust the Holy Spirit, and always remember, "May the Lord be with you!" 2 Corinthians 13:14
