"And the Lord said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air, for it repenteth me that I have made them. But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.” Genesis 6:7,8
OUR CHALLENGE TODAY!
Is it possible that we can hurt God? He is the Almighty! When we talk about falling it’s not to say that we have stumbled off of our feet and have fallen onto the ground below, nor is it to say that we have lost our balance and are now lying on the ground, instead when we talk about falling, we are talking about a moving away from God, a falling away from God’s ways.
When we fall away from God it hurts, it hurts us and it hurts him! To think that we have the ability to hurt God is intense, God has a heart though, a heart that is grieved, and a heart that hurts when we choose to listen and follow another. Man’s fall started in the garden and has continued ever since. Since the time of Adam and Eve there has been actions repeatedly that we all have taken that have hurt God because of the choice to listen and follow someone else. These actions are called SIN. Our sin(s) hurt God and cause us to be separated from God to live in a fallen state. We are all guilty, and we all have fallen. Behold all we like sheep have gone astray! What can be done about this?
"If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." 1John1:9
Although we have hurt God, let us confess our sins and turn to Him in love today!
