I began praying about time spent on TV and electronics. I try to limit what I do, and I don’t really care for TV anymore other than the old classics. God had put me on a technology fast in September of 2015 and that gets on my mind sometimes. I just asked if I should still not be doing anything on technology or am I doing too much? I never thought about it much before He put me on the fast. Also, at that time He gave me Isaiah 58 to read. It talks about fasting and is this a fast He gave.
On October 14, 2017, I woke to the words ‘work out your own salvation with fear and trembling’. I was amazed He spoke to me from His word in the bible. I don’t know why I was, but I was. We have free will and God is not going to tell us step by step what to do. It would be nice if He did, although He will lead and guide if we ask.
I try to remember that He dwells within me when I make my decisions. I am not getting to heaven by works, but my works are to be evidence of my faith. I’d be in a world of trouble if I tried to get to heaven by my works.
So then, my beloved, even as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only but now much rather in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.
