  Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls…

Proverbs 28:14  Happy is the man that feareth alway: but he that hardeneth his heart shall fall into mischief.


Easing into a spiritual backsliding is a dangerous thing.  If we focus on us too much, then we are sure to slide backward.  Self-centeredness is poison to a Spirit-filled life.  Our verse here in Proverbs 28 covers this subject.  Everyone seeks to be happy.  Daily happiness is rooted in spiritual priory.  We must, must put the Lord first.  Our verse uses the word “feareth”.  To fear the Lord is to place Him in high regard, to reverence to the fullest extent.  In short it means that you are afraid not to put Him first and foremost.  He is God Almighty!  He is the beginning and the end.  He is the judge and the last say so.  There must be a fear within our soul that reminds us of His authority.  Notice our word ends with “eth”.  This means a continual action.  The person that puts the Lord first and foremost in all things will be a happy person.  But we also see the warning to those who choose to please the carnal flesh rather than to put the Lord as the centerpiece.  “He that hardeneth his heart”.  Hardeneth… again we see the “eth”.  This word describes a person who habitually puts the Lord on the back burner.  This person intentionally is self-centered in their daily living while knowing it is a sin.  This is not a sin of ignorance.  This is an intentional sin.  This person on purposely does what their carnal side wants to do.  My friend, we do what we want to do.  I know there are things from time to time that put us in a bind.  But even in those times there are rarely situations that the Lord does not give us an out.  1 Corinthians 10:13  There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.  I see our text verse gives no leeway.  The person that hardeneth their heart “shall fall into mischief”.  Wow, he uses the word shall here.  This sin has zero tolerance.  This is a scary truth of judgment!  The person who puts their self wants in front of the Lord’s will, will fall into further sin.  The word mischief here means evil works and intentions.  The meaning goes further into explaining that this sin causes much unnecessary pain, heaviness and heartache.  Oh dear friend, we sometimes bring on our own issues of life.  Our self-centered living is poison to our spiritual life.  Determine to put HIM first and foremost.  Amen. 

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God
Eph 2:8.
