236 I Am Finally Living Out a Human Likeness

1 Following worldly trends made me cunning and deceitful. I was so careful and cautious with others; telling the truth never came easily to me. I acted according to philosophies for living, and was underhanded while believing myself noble. I gratified my vanity, but could not conceal the terror in my heart. God’s words judge and expose mankind’s satanic nature. As if waking from a dream, I realized that I was not living like a human being should; lying, crookedness, and deception had become my very life. Without an honest, good heart, what dignity or integrity is there? Deceitful people are devils who must be weeded out and eliminated by God. I hate that I lack humanity, and am resolved to be a new person.

2 God’s essence is faithful and righteous, and He scrutinizes all. Human deceit cannot escape His eyes; it will ultimately be exposed. Honest people love the truth and have God’s blessings and protection. Now that I understand the truth, I tear off my disguise and am willing to be an honest person. Simply and openly, I dissect myself and lay myself bare, and am no longer afraid of being laughed at. I am now fair in my speech, not dependent upon emotions and not adulterated by any ulterior motives. Before God, I have no deception, and I give my heart over to Him. I perform my duty loyally, not asking for anything in return, and for the sole purpose of satisfying God. It feels good to practice the truth; my heart is at ease. There is no longer anything holding me back from being an honest person and performing my duty. I fear God and shun evil, and am living out a human likeness. Thanks be to God’s judgment and chastisement for saving me!
