6 THINGS THAT GRIEVE GOD’S HEART THAT SHOULD GREATLY CONCERN US!
5. In the society where it is dangerous not to practice evil like others, it means, men after God’s heart have disappeared from the land. At the time of Isaiah’s writing, things had gotten so bad that according to him “ he that departs from evil makes himself a prey” it was so unpopular to stand for what is right that people will not just mock and ridicule those who strive to live right, they would actually go to the extent of taking advantage of them, punish them, prosecute them and make a prey of them
“A true revolution of values will soon cause us to question the fairness and justice of many of our past and present policies. … A true revolution of values will soon look uneasily on the glaring contrast of poverty and wealth. With righteous indignation, it will look across the seas and see individual capitalists of the West investing huge sums of money in Asia, Africa, and South America, only to take the profits out with no concern for the social betterment of the countries, and say, “This is not just.” It will look at our alliance with the landed gentry of South America and say, “This is not just.” The Western arrogance of feeling that it has everything to teach others and nothing to learn from them is not just.” ― Martin Luther King Jr.
My dear readers, is your society getting to that place? Can you hear the clarion call from heaven, telling you to arise and be the man God is looking for?
6. At the height of God’s disillusionment though, is the fact that “… He saw that there was no man” how come there are millions of people in a country, billions of people in the world and God says there is no man.
Friends are you a man according to Gods definition? Have you ever placed yourself under God’s microscopic eyes? Have you examined yourself according to his standards of judgment? Does he call you a man? Is he satisfied with you or could it be God looks at you and fails to see a man, only a bunch of flesh? Full of self, and missing out on the purpose for his or her creation. What does God see, think and feel when he looks at you? “… He saw that there was no man”
Ladies and gentlemen, have you ever thought about what could be God’s heartbeat? What gets him excited? What frustrates him? Today we are examining one of the major points of frustrations for God. Often we tend to think that God doesn’t struggle with mundane things like frustrations and anger, but here he comes out plain to us, that one of his major points of frustrations is WHEN THERE IS NO MAN.
To be continued tomorrow with the following points:
