Luke 6:27-28 “But to you who are listening I say: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, 28 bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you.”
Proverbs 24:17-18 – Do not rejoice when your enemy falls, And do not let your heart be glad when he stumbles; 18 Lest the Lord see it, and it displease Him, And He turn away His wrath from him.
God has assured that a day of recompense for the evil will come. Though they may hide or bury their fear, let us dread that day for them. They are those who hide their eyes and cover their ears lest they see the light and hear the truth. Let us have for them the fear of God that they should have, because we know what the inevitable future that awaits those who reject Jesus as Savior and Lord. Let us fear as they should fear and truly pray for them with Godly love. Perhaps their hardened hearts will break and they will repent. What a joyous day that will be. A day of glory and honor to Him who does not wish for any person to perish. (Peter 3:9, 1 Timothy 2:4, Ezekiel 3:18-21)
We must love those who have chosen to reject eternal life. We must love those who love their sin and who rage against God. Cry for them. Pray that they stop running to their current destiny, that they stop and love God. Pray that they truly love God by coming to Him through Jesus our Savior and Lord. Pray for them. Love God for them. We who walk with God will have hope for them, the hope they should have. Yet our love and hope for Him does not save them by and of itself, but perhaps their hearts will change. We all have family and friends who don’t love Jesus. The Lord loves even those who raise their fist at Him. For now, He offers them the hand of peace and love, till the day they die.
God is good all the time and He loves us. This is true and immutable. Oh how we love our God in whom we have hope! Praise God!
Psalm 150:6 – Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord!
Micah 7:7 – But as for me, I watch in hope for the Lord, I wait for God my Savior; my God will Hear me.
Micah 6:8 – He has shown you, Oh man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you, but to do justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God.
Numbers 6:24-26 – The Lord bless you and keep you; 25 The Lord make His face shine on you and be gracious to you; 26 The Lord turn His face toward you and give you peace.This entry was posted in Devotion and tagged Ezekiel, Luke, Micah, Numbers, Peter, proverbs, Psalm, Timothy by Bob with
