The Light Daily Devotional – Beware of God’s Anger

Focus: Beware of God’s Anger

The word for today

The gravest misfortune a person can face is for God to be determined to eliminate them at any cost. Repent from your wicked ways and honour God in your consecrated space. Never reach a point where God has to harden your heart, leading to your destruction!

Scriptural Reference

“If one man sins against another, God will judge him. But if a man sins against the LORD, who will intercede for him?” Nevertheless, they did not heed the voice of their father, because the LORD desired to kill them.  (1 Samuel 2:25 NKJV)

Eli cautioned his sons against incurring the wrath of God, emphasizing that when God determines to act, no one can thwart His intentions. While God can save a person from external oppression, who can rescue them when God chooses to eliminate them? It is imperative for us all to be vigilant and not take the grace of God for granted. A person who persists in wrongdoing, seemingly without immediate consequences, may be emboldened to continue until eventual destruction.

Reflecting on God’s dealings with Pharaoh, when He wanted to bring about his downfall, He hardened Pharaoh’s heart. Pharaoh remained oblivious to the signs God presented through the ten plagues in Egypt until destruction befell him at the Red Sea. God, in His graciousness, warns us through His Word and various occurrences around us, urging us not to be entangled in the web of wickedness before repentance.

The people of God will always desire to honour God by offering various sacrifices, including their bodies, time, resources, and hard-earned money. If a supposed man of God misappropriates these sacrifices for selfish gains, akin to the sons of Eli, who will deliver them when God executes judgment? Repentance should not be postponed until God decides on destruction.

In the face of God’s potential judgment, who will rescue a person when He decides to bring about their downfall?

Prayer: Dear Lord, shield me from Your wrath. I commit to doing Your will and relying on Your mercy. May I never experience the consequences of Your judgment in Jesus’ Amen!

Emphasis: When God decides to destroy a wicked man no one can stop Him.

Have a Delightful Week Ahead!
