Key Text: Daniel 5:27 KJV - TEKEL; Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting.
The Almighty God is a just God and He weighs the actions and motives of men in His balances. When king Belshazzar was weighed, he was found wanting. The Lord sees your ways and counts your steps. Even the thoughts of your heart are very loud in His ears: He hears and sees your every imagination. Judge yourself and you will not be judged.
Although you may appear to be clean in your own eyes, the weighing scales of the Lord may be showing something different - "Not Good Enough". Therefore, examine your life daily to see if there is anything sinful to repent of before it is too late. The word of God is on one side of the balance; place your motives on the other side and see how you are doing, through the eyes of the Lord.
Saul and David were both kings in Israel, weighed by the Lord and found wanting. Whereas David repented and was forgiven, Saul did not and was rejected. Do not wait until the judgment of God falls upon you. Repent today and surrender your life to Jesus Christ because tomorrow might be too late.
Prayer: O Lord, direct my steps in the way that I should go and let no sin have dominion over me, in Jesus name. Amen.
Reflection: Let me be weighed in an even balance, that God may know mine integrity - Job 31:6.
