THE GRAVEL TEST

THE GRAVEL TEST

The graphic description of the results of disobeying God’s commands – cause us to run from the deceits of sin.

EATING THE BREAD OF DECEIT
Proverbs 20:17
Bread of deceit is sweet to a man, but afterwards his mouth shall be filled with gravel.
It all begins with disobeying God and delighting in the empty pleasures of sin.
Delight yourself in the Lord – find sweet things in His presence.

PAIN IN PRODUCING
Isaiah 48:19
Your seed also had been as the sand, and the offspring of your bowels like the gravel thereof;
Disobedience leads your soul away from God.
The further you drift, the harder it is to produce good things and bring forth life.
Pain in producing life – is a good indication of waywardness.

ASHES TO ASHES
Lamentations 3:16
He has also broken my teeth with gravel stones, he has covered me with ashes.
The end result is firstly finding it hard to talk of spiritual things, and secondly being covered with the ashes of sorrow and mourning.
Check if your conversations are godly and faith filled – or whether you have a propensity toward morbidity.

HE IS LIKE HONEY IN THE ROCK – THEREFORE DESIRE HIM
