Two thought that haunts are, 1. When one thinks they can make a deal with God, as in; I will do this for you if You will do this for me. If this “trade-off” is something you should be doing anyway, don’t wait for God to act, you should move first and now. 2. The devil can not deceive you unless you want him to deceive you. Which is why the Bible reads “Watch and Pray.” Matthew 26; 41
Don’t rise and fall, nor go up and down, never play seesaw with God.
