God’s wrath on unrepentant rebellious people is real. And so is His forgiveness, restoration, and blessings for those who return to Him with all that they have. Only a holy God has the perfect way to give mercy and justice, and He is trustworthy. If we choose to live as if He does not exist we are choosing to be His enemy and He will faithfully honor that decision. A time is coming when those disloyal to God will no longer have access to Him or the good that He graciously provides. I pray we seek His face while we still can.
Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, that the plowman shall overtake the reaper, and the treader of grapes him who sows the seed; and the mountains shall drop sweet wine and all the hills shall melt [that is, everything heretofore barren and unfruitful shall overflow with spiritual blessing]. That is a picture of restoration. But it is not for everyone, it is for those who call out to God for help. What do we value more, our pride which will eventually lead to barren lives or humility that comes before overflowing blessing? Oh how good life can be when we connect to the Giver of all things good. God, please continue to extend Your mercy and fill us afresh today with spiritual blessings as we seek Your Presence. Amen.
