Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded; but ye have set at naught all my counsel, and would none of my reproof: I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh; when your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you. Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me: for that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the Lord: they would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof. Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices.(Proverbs 1:24 – 31)
These are words taken right out of the Bible (holy Scriptures). Sometimes God's words seem dormant; not having much reality to the times we live in. Is God's word powerless? Should it be used as a doormat to promote every imaginable error among man? Are dollars more important than prayers? Is pleasing oneself more than pleasing God our purpose to existence?
Just think, someday every Scripture of God will not only be read before man, but fulfilled in its' entirety. For verily I say unto you, till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. (Matthew 5:18)
Be encouraged, your earthly love for the Father, Son and the Holy Ghost can never be overlooked. Praise the Lord!
