Genesis 20:6 And God said unto him in a dream, Yea, I know that thou didst this in the integrity of thy heart; for I also withheld thee from sinning against me: therefore suffered I thee not to touch her.
This is such an encouraging verse. God withheld him from sinning. He stopped him from doing what he should not have done. I believe I can see how God has done this in my life. I can think of times and things that have happened where it was like I wanted to sin but some how got stopped.
It is good to know that we are serving a God that works in our lives. He is taking care of us even by helping us not do wrong.
There are also times when we are doing something right and good and sin would creep in and destroy us. That is what seems to happen in this verse. He wasn’t trying to sin. He wasn’t trying to do wrong. He was living in the integrity of his heart and God protected him.
I want God to work in my life continually. I want him to lead me not in the way of temptation. I ask that He help me live out what He put in me!
