Are you seeking answers about God’s existence and His role in our lives? In this blog post “God understands”, we will delve into the significance of our relationship with God,
the consequences of rebellion, and the path to living a righteous life. Let’s explore the profound nature of God’s presence, His compassion, and the importance of aligning ourselves with His will.
God Understands And Walking with Him:
Our ancestors walked with God, experiencing His blessings, protection, and guidance. Those who had a genuine relationship with Him knew His existence beyond any doubt.
God understands them and His actions in their lives demonstrated His power, compassion, and faithfulness. The Bible says in Isaiah 49:24-26
Shall the prey be taken from the mighty, or the lawful captive delivered? But thus saith the Lord, Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away, and the prey of the terrible shall be delivered:
for I will contend with him that contendeth with thee, and I will save thy children. And I will feed them that oppress thee with their own flesh; and they shall be drunken with their own blood, as with sweet wine: and all flesh shall know that I the Lord am thy Saviour and thy Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob
(Isaiah 49:24-26 (KJV).
The Rebellion Against God:
Despite experiencing God’s goodness, some individuals rebelled against Him, giving in to their sinful desires.
The Bible says in Malachi 1:12But ye have profaned it, in that ye say, The table of the Lord is polluted; and the fruit thereof, even his meat, is contemptible
(Malachi 1:12, KJV).
This rebellion provoked God’s anger, leading to dire consequences for those who turned away from Him. The Bible says in Proverbs 6:12-16
A naughty person, a wicked man, walketh with a froward mouth. He winketh with his eyes, he speaketh with his feet, he teacheth with his fingers; Frowardness is in his heart, he deviseth mischief continually;
he soweth discord. Therefore shall his calamity come suddenly; suddenly shall he be broken without remedy. These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him (Proverbs 6:12-16 (KJV).
Jesus states in Matthew 12:34“O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaketh.”
(Matthew 12:34 KJV).
The Call for Genuine Obedience:
God’s desire is for us to fear Him, obey His commandments, and walk in His ways.
Through genuine obedience, we can experience His abundant love and mercy, finding true purpose in life. The Bible says in Mark 12:30
And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.” (Mark 12:30 (KJV).
The Warning to Rulers and Leaders:
Even those in positions of power are not exempt from God’s judgment.
The rulers of the earth are called to serve God reverently, recognizing that their actions have consequences and what they do reflects who they truly are.
The Impermanence of Earthly Life:
Life on earth is temporary, and none of us can escape death. It is essential to live righteously and fear God, for one day, we will all return to Him. Jesus says in Matthew 10:28
And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell (Matthew 10:28, KJV).
Embracing God’s Love and Mercy:
God’s love and mercy are boundless. Repentance and embracing a righteous life allow us to receive His forgiveness and experience the fullness of His grace.
Understanding God’s presence and following His ways are vital to living a purposeful and meaningful life.
Embracing His love and mercy, and aligning ourselves with His will, bring us closer to the Father and offer us eternal salvation.

Thank You, Jesus, for rising from the dead to give me life. Come into my heart by Your Holy Spirit to lead and live in me.
Thank You, Father, that right now, I am born again, as a fresh, new child of God, forever set free by Your truth. Amen.
May the Lord have mercy on you and forgive your sins. May any power seeking to destroy your soul be defeated, and may you be empowered to live according to God’s word. In Jesus’ mighty name, Amen.
