Psalm 81:16 (NLT) But I would feed you with the finest wheat. I would satisfy you with wild honey from the rock.”
There are great lessons to be learned even from the failures of God’s people recorded in the Scriptures. God says if His people had obeyed His voice He would have subdued their enemies and fed them with honey out of the rock. But they rebelled and walked in the counsel of their own will. We all can find ourselves walking in the counsel of our own will periodically!
How sad that a people who that could have enjoyed the richest of blessings from their gracious God were instead given up to their own desires and suffered the consequences of their disobedience. How often have you neglected the place of blessing? There is counsel and comfort in God’s Word but you have spent little time reading it.
There are rich mercies to be found at the throne of grace but you have neglected Prayer. There are joys and blessings to be found in God’s house but you have been attracted by the empty promises of the world. Churches sometimes mourn the loss of spiritual fervor enjoyed in former days. But instead of being brought to repentance for sin and neglect, the excuse is made that we live in difficult times.
The lack of power in preaching is a concern but still messages to make people feel good take precedence over sound biblical exposition. The Lord is in the blessing business and wants to bless you and your family right now!
