5 I have heard of thee by the hearing of the ear: but now mine eye seeth thee.
6 Wherefore I abhor myself, and repent in dust and ashes.
When God’s voice speaks to you which is the sound of many waters, and your eyes keep sight of Him, fear and trembling will come to you that you have no alternative but to repent like Job. Job 42:5-6. When God wants to send His fury no man can stop except His grace and mercy when you fully repent in sincerity and truth.
We need to take responsibility of our calling and our ministry. God has designed us for greatness but man has taken grace for granted. We must stop finding faults with people. Its due to the wounds of sibling rivalry. We must leave this formative influence and cleave to what God’s word say in 1 cor 13.11 where as adult we cannot react childishly.
Jeremiah stressed that man’s heart are always deceitful and desperately wicked above all things. You can never know what is in the heart of man except God who knows all things of His creation. How true! A hurting person would rejoice at other people’s mistake and judge them. Mat 7:1 we are not supposed to judge but discern and correct in love.
A deceitful heart and desperately wicked one will always perceive and judge unrighteously. See Jer 17:9. God searches our hearts and our mind to reward us according to our ways good or bad. We reap the fruit of our doings. Verse 10. God is looking for a heart that is sincere and true to Him.
Yesterday Pastor Darien was saying man find it difficult to admit their mistakes. Only when God comes with the rod then our spirit is awakened. 1 Cor 4.21. Those who walk humbly and repentant sincerely will likewise be rewarded with abundance. If we still want our ways God will blow our finances away or our wages will be put in bags with holes for irresponsibility. Haggai 1:6-9. Lets take heed of what the Spirit of the Lord has to say to us this morning.
