Daniel 9:13 NIV
Just as it is written in the law of Moses, all this disaster has come upon us, yet we have not sought the favor of the Lord our God by turning from our sins and giving attention to your truth.
We all go through it! Many of us are going through it right now! Like really going through it! Yet we refuse to turn to God! We ignore his truths because we don’t want to be bound by what we see as rules (I guess because we prefer to be bound in sin and our situations) and/or you may feel unworthy to go to God because we mistake the church’s fickle attitude for how God views and treats us. We must remember that we serve a consistent and loving God that works with a “by any means necessary” mentality to get his children to return to him!
If you are in a disastrous season and you know that you aren’t living for God the way you have been called, see what happens when you repent (turn around) and give attention to his truth (the word/bible). Try it out for a few months and see how that goes.
Now I know there’s a difference between tragedies occurring, punishment, persecution etc. and not everything is happening because we are in the wrong. I dare not try to emulate Job’s friends and say that you are going through any of your storms or trials because of something you are doing wrong…BUT it’s time for you to examine your own heart. Maybe this season of blah is present because God is waiting for you to turn around so everything else in your life can too. Go to God! He’s waiting!
