Scripture: Hebrews (NIV) 3:7 So, as the Holy Spirit says: “Today, if you hear his voice,
8 do not harden your hearts as you did in the rebellion, during the time of testing in the wilderness,
9 where your ancestors tested and tried me, though for forty years they saw what I did.
10 That is why I was angry with that generation; I said, “Their hearts are always going astray, and they have not known my ways.
11 So I declared on oath in my anger, “They shall never enter my rest.”
12 See to it, brothers and sisters, that none of you has a sinful, unbelieving heart that turns away from the living God.”
Observation: Wise people would consider it a major crisis when the all-powerful, all-knowing God gets angry! Anger can be as intense as love.
Application: It is nice to read my favorite verses, but what a mistake it would be to ignore all the warnings. God would not love me very much if He knew of trouble lying in my path and did not warn me. I would not trust Him very much if I did not pay attention to His warnings! I need to be careful how I talk and act.
Prayer: Lord, I know that you are always righteous in your anger and that you mercies are new every morning. Thank you for the Holy Spirit that warns me. Amen
Making friends for time and eternity!
