The Father’s Mistakes!
“And you have done worse than your fathers, for behold, each one follows the dictates of his own evil heart so that no one listens to Me.” Jeremiah 16:12
From the days of Eden till now, God has been showing incomparable grace. He has rendered mercy, patience, kindness, and faithfulness that is mighty to us from generation to generation. Irrespective of God’s goodness, humans haven’t stopped going against His will. The present generations are even far worse than the generations which had previously lived. It’s just becoming worse, the more people try to make sense of it.
The people of Israel got God angry to the extent that He put them into the hands of their enemy because they didn’t reference Him. They left the God who brought them out of Egypt to serve idols, and this made God sent them out of their land into a land they do not know and without favor (vs. 13). The covering that was given to them by God was taken away, and they become prone to danger.
“Though a sinner does evil and a hundred times, and his days be prolonged, yet surely I know that it shall be well with them that fear God, which fear before him.” Ecclesiastes 8:12
Can you think of living a minute, a day, or years without the faithfulness, mercy, and favor of God? The enemy that has been bragging and wanting to destroy you will eventually just find their way into your life without difficulties. But the Lord is faithful to his people, and he will never leave us nor forsake us. However, we can not continue in sin and ask for God’s grace to continue to flow. (Romans, 6:1).
We must do away with any ungodly act, immoral practices, sinful thought, and all sort of things that is against God’s will. Do not engage in what will make God’s grace and mercy to leave your life. We cannot afford our generation to lack God’s presence because we know its implication in people’s lives in time past. Live a godly and acceptable life, seek God daily, and pray that His grace shouldn’t leave your life. Romans 6:15 says, “What then? Shall we sin because we are not under the law but grace? Certainly not!”
1. Lord, help me live a loving and holy life. Give me the grace to serve you untiring.
2. Psalm 28:2 “Hear my cry for mercy when I call to You for help, when I lift my hands toward Your holy sanctuary.”
