It is so easy not to pay attention to God. He doesn’t come charging at you as do bill collectors, children, or house maintenance emergencies. The pressing items do just that—press. God waits! Don’t make Him wait too much longer, though. He says He won’t turn His back on us, but He also says He will not strive with us forever. Turn to Him in all situations. Have that few moments of re-dedication to Him. Clear the slate and let Him write on it again.
In all likelihood, this scenario will happen over and over in your life. Each time though, return to Him, and in His due time, the honor, fear and respect of Him will far outweigh the dim and distant future. What a rich and wonderful life God has for His people. Beauty for ashes…what a deal! Endure the fire…it’s producing pure gold!
