Theme: DO NOT HARDEN YOUR HEART.
Memory Verse: “He, that being often reproved hardeneth his neck, shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy.” (Proverbs 29:1)
Many are in captivity today because they have continuously ignored God’s warning. God is a merciful God. He does not willfully punish or send calamity to mankind. Rather, before He does anything He will send a warning to give you a chance to amend your ways. Even if He had planned to punish you, He can be influenced by your reaction to His warning.
If we react positively by repenting, He can change His intended line of action as was in the case of the city of Nineveh after they hearkened to the warning of Jonah. But if we ignore Him, then He will suddenly carry out His judgment without further warning.
In today’s text, we see Lot pleading with his son-in-law to come along with him and his family because the city was about to be overthrown by God. Instead of heeding the warning, they laughed him to scorn and felt he was joking until they were suddenly destroyed alongside the inhabitants of Sodom and Gomorrah. The Israelites of old also suffered the same fate. God sent prophets like Isaiah, Jeremiah, Hosea, and Amos to warn them of impending doom when they went astray. He warned them consistently to no avail until He became fed up with their disobedience and led them into captivity.
Are you one of those that scoff at the warnings of God? Have you been hearing the undiluted word of God but have not deemed it fit to amend your ways? Do you read your Bible but are selective in the application? Be careful not to provoke the anger of God. His warnings should not be taken lightly. While it is true that He is a merciful God, He is also a consuming fire. It is only a fool that contends with his Maker and hopes to come out of it unscathed.
It is time to take stock and consider your ways before it is too late. Today is the day of salvation. Tomorrow may be too late.
Worship/praise God and then take the following prayer points:
- Lord, give me the Grace to always heed Your warnings, in Jesus’ name.
- I pray for all the Chosen ones; that we may not take Your mercy for granted, in Jesus’ name.
- Lord, in Your Mercy, turn away any impending judgment against us due to sin, in Jesus’ name.
- Dear Lord, shower your Grace upon our G. O and Mommy in the Lord so that they will continue to abide daily in Your presence, in Jesus’ name.
- Lord, by Your spirit and power, we declare that we shall not fight any war in our nation, in Jesus’ name.
