(Sorry about the break in the middle…) Thanks for coming back.
Ever wonder what happens to those people that are angry at God? Have you ever been mad at God? I mean really mad? Have you ever thought that he has forgotten about you, and left you to your own devices? He hasn’t, you know. God tests us on a constant basis. He does this to see if we are truly faithful or fair-weather faithful. Let’s get on with the lesson shall we?
…He has disowned the God who made him,
and dishonored the Rock, his
This is part of a song that God told Moses to recite to the tribes of Israel. In this phrase, he is alluding to Mount Sinai and the betrayal of the Israelites who had turned from God as Moses was receiving the commandments. They had denounced God with their actions, and dishonored Him by casting and worshiping false idols. They had been led astray by one who never had faith in God from the start.
Have you ever suffered hardships, and found yourself asking “Why Me, Lord?” Have you ever looked toward the heavens and yelled at Him while shaking your fist? If you answered yes, then you have disrespected God at that moment. Mind blowing, isn’t it? How a little action can mean so much?
I shall hurl disasters on them,
on them I shall use up all my arrows.
God is angry. He has been scorned, and cast aside. Those that fall off the path set before them have, in essence, cast God aside. When you cast God aside, or run from him, you are no longer walking the path He has set before you to follow. You are no longer doing works in His name. Knowing the signs that have fallen by the wayside are easy to spot.
I should crush them to dust.
Has everything you’ve done to build a life for yourself fallen apart? Do all your plans to rise from ashes turn to dust? Every time you think this is the plan that you put you back on your feet, do you still land on your butt? Have you gotten to a point in your life where you don’t see a way out?
You have fallen into a trap. Instead of cursing and blaming God, now is the time to ask him for help, strength and guidance. Asking for help is just the beginning. When you turn to God and ask for his help and forgiveness, that is just the start of being on the right track. There are still some things to be done on your end to really get you going.
