The Light Daily Devotional – Let Both Grow together
Focus: Let Both Grow together
The word for today
The Lord in His attribute will not uproot the tares among the wheat because he has already set a time for their destruction. Be mindful of this very fact: a day is coming when God will bring to judgment all works of men!
“Let both grow together until the harvest, and at the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, “First gather together the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat into my barn.” (Matthew 13:30 NKJV)
Sometimes we wonder why God is silent over the evil deeds of men and does not take drastic measures over them. We tend to lose patience over the growth rate of the evil work of darkness. By human standards, one will think that God should destroy evil-doers and lawless people to establish the required peace in every domain of life.
However, the merciful God in His infinite mercy has made His verdict known to us; “Let both grow together till the time of harvest when their fruit will make the difference”. From generation to generation both the good and the bad will keep growing together. Their fruit will be the only distinguishable factor that will separate them.
Hence, a man will be deceiving himself if he thinks he will get away with his evil deeds; the Lord has set judgment day for every deed of men. The Lord chooses not to uproot the weeds in the context of men to make an allowance for repentance. That is why the Lord said: “my reward is with me to give unto every man according to his deeds” (Rev 22:12).
What do you look like before God: wheat or tares?
Lord! Help me to bear the fruit of righteousness all the days of my life in Jesus’ name. Amen!
Emphasis::The Lord will do nothing about your deeds until the judgment day is fulfilled!
Have a Graceful Thursday!
