S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
Repent at my rebuke! Then I will pour out my thoughts to you, I will make known to you my teachings.
King Solomon demanded that people respond through repentance to his corrections, or sometimes suffer death. God on the other hand has given all of us free will, and we can choose to hold on to our “RIGHTS” instead of instantly repenting when we know we’ve done wrong. Just like the king, God promises to open up His reservoir of knowledge to those who will just repent and … “Get It Over With!”
I’m always amazed when people have been proven guilty and continue to hold on to their petty, so called, “RIGHTS.” Instead of just admitting they were wrong, they want to find a higher court of law that will exonerate them. The truth is, the only real exoneration comes from our loving Heavenly Father by way of REPENTING. But then, again, the issue of “RIGHTS” pops up. Lines like, “I was disrespected though” enter the picture. Here’s the challenge, the very one who holds on to his or her “RIGHTS” is the one who needs the flow of God’s information coming their way. However, God says, “Only when you REPENT at my REBUKE, will the flow of INFO return.” Wow! Somebody’s got to give in. I’m pretty sure it won’t be the Lord. It’s probably best to just … “Get It Over With!”
I’m sitting here this AM thinking, Am I nuts? I just want to … “Get It Over With” and Repent! I need Your Flow of Info coming my way today. Amen
