Thought for Today (2/19/2017)

Since you refuse to listen to God when he calls out to you and you turn away from His hand; since you disregard His advice and ignore his chastise; He will laugh when disaster strikes you and mock you when you are hit by disaster.

When catastrophes hit you and disaster sweeps over you like a tornado, when you are in a state of distress and overwhelmed and call out to God, who you have ignored, and look for Him, you will not find comfort in Him for you chose not to fear and obey Him.

Since you did not abide by God’s law and ignored his rebuke, you will eat the fruit of your ways and be filled with the fruit of your schemes.  Those simple people who have left God to live in the City of Man and those fools who have been complacent will be destroyed; but those who listen to God’s word will live in safety and be at peace without fear of harm.

This is from Proverbs 1:24-33.  Does the word reflect what you see around you during these times?  When disaster strikes whether in large scale or personal, fools and those who have strayed cry out “If there is a God, how could He let this happen?”  They do not understand it is they who turned away from God, not the other way around.

If you turn your back on a loved one and totally ignore them.  If you disregard their advice and counsel until you are in a time of distress, can you expect them to come to your aid?  So, if you don’t have a personal relationship with God on a daily basis, why would you expect Him to wait around until you think you need Him?
