What Will You Do In The Day…

God never leaves us.

God is always with us. No matter what we do. No matter the evil we do, God has His hand outstretched for us to take it and turn towards Him and away from the trespasses and inequities that we do.

Therefore the Lord will have no joy in their young men,
Nor have mercy on their fatherless and widows;
For everyone is a hypocrite and an evildoer,
And every mouth speaks folly.
For all this His anger is not turned away,
But His hand is stretched out still. ~ Isiah 9:17 NKJB

The patience of God is something that is difficult to comprehend. We, most of us, have the patience of a gnat. A quick drive around any large city will easily prove this point.

Our wrath, our hatred for our brothers and sisters can cause us to do unspeakable evils in this world and the Lord of hosts has His hand outstretched awaiting our return like a prodigal child.

Does this mean we can do as we wish, over and over and over, then turn back to God? No, not even close.

“Woe to those who decree unrighteous decrees,
Who write misfortune,
Which they have prescribed
To rob the needy of justice,
And to take what is right from the poor of My people,
That widows may be their prey,
And that they may rob the fatherless.
What will you do in the day of punishment,
And in the desolation which will come from afar?
To whom will you flee for help?
And where will you leave your glory? ~ Isiah 10:1-3 NKJB

No, there will be consequences if we continually turn our back on God. If we simply ignore His hand until it suits us, how will that work?

What we learn from Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is we can wait until the last minute of our life in this world, turn to Him and all is forgiven.

To whom will you flee for help?
And where will you leave your glory?

Is this not important? Is this not part of our walk with Jesus Christ? Who gets the praise, honor and glory if all of our walk is away from Jesus Christ until our breath is about to run out? How does that work? Does honor not play a major role in our walk with Jesus Christ?

Either the Scripture is the divine Word of God teaching us how to live and how to be a reflection of God, or it’s nothing more than a historical account of events.
