“You give your mouth free rein for evil, and your tongue frames deceit. You sit and speak against your brother; you slander your own mother’s son. These things you have done, and I have been silent; you thought that I was one like yourself. But now I rebuke you and lay the charge before you. “Mark this, then, you who forget God, lest I tear you apart, and there be none to deliver! The one who offers thanksgiving as his sacrifice glorifies me; to one who orders his way rightly I will show the salvation of God!””
- Ignoring God does not make Him go away. He is ever present, all knowing, and ever powerful. He is not accepting of our sin or distracted from noticing our rebellion. The teacher is always quiet during the test, but the teacher does not leave. May we understand that God is always present and may we honor Him with our thoughts, actions, and heart.
- If you measured the times that you were thankful to God in your heart, mind, and words versus the times that you did not think about God at all, what would the results be?
- While we would never claim to “forget” God how often do we omit Him from our daily lives?
Psalm 46:10 “Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!”
