“A number who had practiced sorcery brought their scrolls together and burned them publicly. When they calculated the value of the scrolls, the total came to fifty thousand drachmas.” (Act 19:19)

When we recognize that God is calling us in a certain direction, or asking us to make some adjustment in our lives, there can be consequences that cost us in some way or another.

The cost could be in relationships with those who don’t want to give up some types of behavior. It could be in time or resources that are given to other areas. He may be calling us to give up some form of income or lifestyle that will cost us financially.

Giving up behaviors or items that do not honor God and are the result of true repentance demonstrate a real encounter and a changed life. What is God asking you to do today?

Quick Prayer: I realize repentance or a change can cost me. Give me the strength to change. Amen.
