“Listen! The LORD is not too weak to save you, and he is not becoming deaf. He can hear you when you call. But there is a problem — your sins have cut you off from God. Because of your sin, he has turned away and will not listen anymore.” Isaiah 59:1-2,
The way you develop a relationship with someone can be liken to the way you start your closer relationship with God. Though, it is different when referring to your acceptance of our Lord Jesus Christ as your personal saviour.
With all respect, God’s relationship with you is deeper than those you have with your fellow being because God oversees your life, your endeavours, your emotions, your inner secrets, your pains and happiness, your desires.
While with your fellow being, this is not the same. You can have a friend for specific reasons or none at all.
Do you know that God hears you at all times when you communicate with Him? He does not hesitate to give you whatever you want, so that you can trust Him the more.
But do you also know that God can turn away from you? Listen! This does not mean that God is wicked or He does not love.
Please make sure you won’t get yourself to that point in life when God is no longer your God. We have so much choice in life to do whatever we want.
I mean God gives us the liberty to choose how we want our lives to be. Many people have misused this unique freedom to the extent that they sin freely without any remorse.
Some even got themselves to that level that they now think God does not exist. You know you can sin thousands of times and still be forgiven, by God.
But there are some sins that are unforgivable such as blasphemy, deliberated sins, and debauchery, and many more.
You may think you can commit any of these sins and get away. Then after sinning, you come to God in prayer, asking Him to help you for something else.
Sure, God hears you but He will not give you your request because he warned you already not to commit those sins but you deliberately did them. Why can’t you obey God if you can seriously obey your earthly father?
In spite of all, I must inform you that God is forever loving and forgiving. In fact, His ways are not our ways. The bible says in the book of Lamentations 3:22-23 “The Steadfast Love of the Lord never ceases, His mercy never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your Faithfulness.”
Come to respect God. Obey Him. Listen to Him; follow His divine instructions that He laid out for you because none of them are difficult to follow. Just obey and avoid sinning.
