When Truth Becomes Popular...

I am so excited and thrilled to see more and more churches,
 Christians and ministries tackle biblical teachings that 
affect women.  I believe God is awakening us to His truths
 in these last days.  It's been awesome to see a resurgance
of teachings on modesty and headcovering in
 the past number of years.  Hallelujah!  

But with this awakening comes a great responsibility.   
When it comes to practical application - let us
 inquire of the Lord and search His Word
and not just blindly play 'follow the leader'.  
We do not  know someone's heart the way God does.  
The standard or model someone is currently practicing 
may not be the final standard God is calling them to.   
 Or that dear sister may still be battling the flesh and not 
be walking in total surrender when it comes to her wardrobe.
Satan has a way of tickling ears, being sneaky,
 making wrong appear right, and clouding our focus.   
Be careful of thoughts such as...
'surely God doesn't want me to appear different'...  or 
'but in today's culture...'
or 'but she's a great Christian and she...' and on and on.
If God desires us to abstain from the very appear-
ance of evil - (I Thess. 5:22)
what might He be asking in regard to our closet?

I found these verses sobering today...
God is speaking of cutting off people who...
 "have turned back from following the Lord,and have not sought the Lord, nor inquired of Him." 
(from Zeph. 1:6)

I want to be inquiring of Him - trusting you do too ~Joyce
