I recently heard someone say the difference between conviction and condemnation is that a conviction moves us to take action while condemnation doesn't. How often are we convicted of something but still refuse to take action? Over the years I have been under conviction to change the way I dress. I have read numerous articles, searched the Bible, and looked for guidance in this area. Yet, after all I have learned when it comes to what the Bible says about modesty I still have not taken much in the way of action. Which is heartbreaking to the Lord. Why do I fight the changes he wants for me? Why do I look to my own ideas and not to the ideas of the Lord? My flesh seems to be stronger than my faith in God in this area. How do I overcome that? I finally started sorting through my clothes and have a bag of shorts and pants to get rid of. I could get rid of more but that would involve not having anything to wear. I go to the store and am lost. It would be easier if I had a friend in this area who I could go to and speak with and I do but rarely do I go to Him. I know the Lord will guide me if I was to truly seek His will in this area. I know that He would show me the way but out of condemnation I do not move. I sit and wait for no movement is sometimes easier. Eventually my faith in the Lord will overcome and my obedience will improve. Maybe today will be the day.
