But because of your stubbornness and your unrepentant heart, you are storing up wrath against yourself for the day of God’s wrath, when his righteous judgment will be revealed. God “will repay each person according to what they have done.” Romans 2:5-6 New International Version
There was a boy who was abused terribly by his parents. When he became a young man he moved to a city. There the Lord moved him to do volunteer work in a seniors home. There he saw many seniors whose children hardly ever came to visit them, they were very lonely and sad. The young man politely rebuked the children when he saw them. They, in turn sternly rebuked him and informed him their parents were very abusive and unrepentant. Therefore, there was very bad feelings between them. The young man tried to talk with the seniors but they were cold hearted and hard hearted.
Didn’t they, because of their unrepentant hearts, get what they deserved?
The man has repeatedly attempted with no success to get his parents to reconcile and repent. They too have been cold hearted and unrepentant. Now a few decades later, the mans parents are seniors in a seniors home feeling sorry for themselves and some nurses try to get the man to visit his parents. Now it is his turn to gracefully inform the nurses of the family situation. Reflecting back, the man see’s Gods justice works on His time not ours. It was a not a time delay, it was on Gods time.
It is sad to see but it is also just.
These are the things God has revealed to us by his Spirit. The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God. 1 Corinthians 2:10 New International Version.
My question to you is this: is there are relationship in which you need to reconcile but are too proud to?
If so, are you looking forward to experiencing the same rewards of those mentioned (because that is exactly what will happen to you)?
Prayer: Please Jehovah Ropheka (God our healer) please bless me with the wisdom, grace and meekness to reconcile with ___________ (write in the name of someone you have done wrong to and have refused to apologize to or of someone who has done you wrong that you refuse to forgive). Please bless us with Your healing love in this relationship because I know that just as through Your son You have healed our relationship so too do You desire for my earthly relationship to be healed. I ask this in the name of He whose sacrifice on the cross healed our sacrifice Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
