Thought for the Day II

"All of us get frustrated when evil seems to have won a victory. David cried out to God,  "How long, how long shall the wicked, how long shall the wicked triumph?  They break in pieces thy people, O LORD, and afflict thine heritage.  They slay the widow and the stranger, and murder the fatherless.”  Psalm 94:4-6 And the question is answered in Psalm 145:20, "The LORD preserveth all them that love Him: but all the wicked will He destroy."

For those who choose to ignore the voice of God and turn their mind and heart to fight against God and God's people, there is a price. Don't think that God is not going to avenge the righteous and the innocent. Hear the Word of the Lord. Psalm 9:17, "The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all nations that forget God." and in Psalm 34:16, "The face of the LORD is against them that do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth."

God's plan allows for men to harden their hearts against Him, and when they do, there is no end to the horror that ungodly people can do. God's plan allows for men to turn to Him and love Him, and when they do, there is no end to the great things that godly people can do. Let's let God be God, but let's allow God to be God in us and through us. When we do, then we can find our place, and by choice, fulfill our calling.
