*WISDOM FOR TODAY.*
*YOU HAVE BEEN SUFFICIENTLY WARNED!*
Psalm 51:4 ► *Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest.*
*Insight and Highlight.*
There is no one God judged that He did not sufficiently warn.
David expressed to God His righteousness in justice. Ps 51:4 *"....that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest.*
God is a true judge and He is justified when He judges.
God does not quickly punish, he does not willingly afflict or quick to grieve us, Lam 3:33.
Solomon tells us there are times when sentence is not speedily executed against the wicked. Eccl 8:11 *Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily,...."*
Many times God withholds judgment waiting that the sinner repents.
In the OT, God ensured there was at least a prophet in the reign of every king either of Israel or Judah. This He did so that each king may rule with the fear and word of God through HIs prophets.
We see Samuel in the life of Saul, the Samuel and Nathan in the life of king David, Zechariah in the life of king Uziah,
Micaiah in the life of Ahab etc.
Kings who obeyed them lived and enjoyed God's blessings. Those who disobeyed suffer grave consequences.
People fall into sin, not because they were not adequately warned by the Holy Spirit but because they chose to disobey out of their own self will or lusts, James 1:14.
You have been sufficiently warned!
If God judges you, you must have received adequate warnings but unyielding.
True confession and repentance do avert God's judgment and turns His wrath away.
*Call to Word action.*
God is not quick to judge, if you are quick to seek His forgiveness.
Lamentations 3:33 *For he doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the children of men.*
*The Christian clarion duty.*
Psalm 119:11 *Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.*
Lord, help me to heed to Your words, when I am reproved or warned, in Jesus name.
Good morning all and have a blessed day today.
God bless you.
