Isn’t it time, that we stop crying,
for deliverance from circumstance’s
punishment, when we really should
be begging to be freed from our sin?
His Word teaches us that escaping

the results of ‘Sowing and Reaping’
is not feasible; our given ability
to reason, isn’t diminished when…
we have the Hope of Christ within.
Instead, we ought to be willing

to end production of needless pain
towards our God; anxiety and fears
prevents us from pushing forward in
victory, although we’re working and
striving towards… a worthwhile gain.

Author notes

Inspired by:
Heb 12:1; 1 Cor 9:24  and

We cry too often to be delivered from the
punishment, instead of the sin that lies
behind it.  We are anxious to escape from
the things that cause us pain rather than
from the things that cause God pain.
-G. Campbell Morgan
