life is not simple, and God’s ways are not our ways. Making the right decision may come at a cost. But in God’s eternal plan, His blessings always arrive in due time and never fail.
Life seems straightforward in the laws of the Old Testament. Obey God and get blessed, while disobedience expect trouble. Although it’s a right theology, but is it that simple? It’s easy to look at stories and draw a simple conclusion . But when the prophet Hanani warned Asa, he said that God will “strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to Him” (2 Chronicles 16:9). Why do our hearts need strengthening ? Because doing the right thing may require more courage and perseverance.
Lord, thank You for Your Word. Help us to learn from others mistakes and wise choices, as we make our choice to serve You! In Christ Name we pray, Amen.
