I am ever amazed by God. I wrote this devotion in 2019 ON THIS DAY. I started studying and reading through Galatians just this week again. God is amazing how He aligns everything to teach us, if we will just listen and do….
I love me some Paul. He is such an encourager. I could camp out for months in Galatians, Ephesians,Philippians, & Colossians, etc.. However, I was chewing on some word in Galatians. To be honest, they were a little hard to chew on. Here’s what he said to “off-track” Galatia:
I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: (Galatians 1:6)
O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you? (Galatians 3:1)
The word foolish here doesn’t mean stupid or inept. It means they knew what to do and didn’t exercise their mind to do it.
This is how the Holy Spirit spoke these verses to me:
You guys blow my mind. Why was it so easy for you to change sides? Who side are you on anyways? You were called into the grace, unmerited favor, of Christ. You turn so easily to something else. A fake news. A distorted news, not the Truth.
Oh foolish Galatians, you know what to do, but you don’t exercise your mind to do it. You just don’t get it. Who has charmed the pants off of you? Who has lied to you and moved you away from the truth? You’ve seen what Jesus has done. Come on now.
Hard words to here on an early morn. We must keep our eyes on the Truth, Jesus. I encourage you. I encourage me. Let’s exercise our mind, do the word & the right thing.
