God of Guardrails

Thank You for establishing boundaries for my life and guarding me from the ditch.

We hate “NO!” As soon as we are able, we rebel against “No”, throwing tantrums to get our way. As we age we get less direct…but just as obstinate when told, “No”. We’re deceived into believing that “YES!” is the kind and loving response.

Help me understand the truth…permissiveness is ultimately the road to a hopeless future while wise boundaries are designed to protect and guard it. “Thou shalt not…” of Scripture is designed to prevent the consequences of poor choices from ruining our lives. The world’s enticing, “Eat it, you’ll surely not die…” came from a heart totally unconcerned for my well-being.

Lord, thank You for caring enough to tell me “No.”

AMEN

Scripture: “For I know the plans I have for you,” says the LORD. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11
