If not love, let fear bring sense
Psalm 90:11,12 -
Who knoweth the power of thine anger? even according to thy fear, so is thy wrath. So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.
We always have known God as a loving and merciful God.
No doubt that our God is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, abundant in goodness and truth, but we fail to see that God does remember everything and at the end after giving enough of time to repent, He does take account of all the wrongs.
Even in the case of Satan; God even after knowing that Satan will not repent, God gave him a thousand years to repent but at the end God knowing all things has already written what will be done with Satan.
The worst punishment is not those who do not know Him but to those who knowingly reject Him and His ways.
When we do not let the love of God change us and grow closer to Him, then let the fear of this truth bring sense into us and change.
[ Prayer Starter ]
Lord God, You did all things in your love and mercy to change us and bring us closer to You. Lord, there are many who are far from You and thinking them know You, they do not know You. Lord, open their minds and bring sense in them that by fear they change and known You...
We make this prayer in Jesus' Name, Amen.
