Proverbs 20:1 “Wine is a mocker and beer a brawler; whoever is led astray by them is not wise.” (NIV)
In meetings in church, at Cube or Frontline we can shout praises to Jesus and make decisions to stand for Him, but in order to live for Him consistently throughout our daily lives, at school, work, Uni, in our families and at college it’s so important that we are wise.
One of the particular areas we need to be wise in and make a stand for Jesus is with what we drink. Clearly we read throughout the Bible that it is not wrong to drink alcohol, but not having enough self-control and not being sensible with drink can cause all kinds of problems and can draw us away from God.
Today’s verse says that wine is a mocker and beer a brawler; whoever is led astray by them is not wise. It’s really key to make a stand for God with what we drink and how we handle it. The truth is you may have made mistakes with this area in the past or have had struggles with it, and God understand our struggles and there is forgiveness, however, God calls us to a higher standard in Him, and has much better stuff for us than being unwise with our drink and with His supernatural strength He can help us to make a stand for Him in this area.
Cube Challenge: Ask God to help you make a stand for Him and be wise in the area of drinking. If you find you struggle with this have a chat with one of the CUBE team, and they can pray and stand with you as you chose to make this step for God.
