I was struck this morning by the incredible patience of God with his children. He gives us so many chances to do better! He sends people to talk to us, He gives us dreams, He instructs us……we have so many chances! I recall a commercial on TV that talked about warnings that are there for us to see if we only will. It is like that with God; the warnings and the guidance are there for us if we will only see. Then, in Revelation where we read God’s messages to the churches, he says to them, “Anyone with ears to hear must listen to the Spirit and understand what he is saying to the churches….”
Lord, thank You for Your patience with me personally. I am really slow sometimes in responding to Your warnings, guidance, and even Your love. Thank You for loving me so much that You keep on talking to me, and showing me the way. I love You. AMEN
I know that I can be strong like a tree planted by a river that will produce fruit in season. I must first love the Lord’s teachings. Psalm 1
The Lord's Patience
18 When I say to the wicked, ‘You will surely die,’ you must warn them so they may live. If you don’t speak out to warn the wicked to stop their evil ways, they will die in their sin. But I will hold you responsible for their death. 19 If you warn the wicked and they do not turn from their wickedness or their evil ways, they will die because of their sin. But you will have saved your life. 20 “Again, those who do right may turn away from doing good and do evil. If I make something bad happen to them, they will die. Because you have not warned them, they will die because of their sin, and the good they did will not be remembered. But I will hold you responsible for their deaths. 21 But if you have warned those good people not to sin, and they do not sin, they will surely live, because they believed the warning. And you will have saved your life.” (Ezekiel 3:18-21 NCV)
