God Protects Those Who Stay Away From Sin
Passage: Ezekiel 26
Sin caused a rift between God and the Israelites, which caused the Creator to turn His back against his own children. The separation created a vacuum that granted Satan an opportunity to attack the rebel nation. The enemy instigated the neighboring countries to attack Israel since they had lost God’s protection. However, God promised to forgive His children and protect them against those who attack them.
God said to Ezekiel,
“Son of man, because Tyrthe tires said against Jerusalem, ‘Aha! She is broken who was the gateway of the peoples; now she is turned over to me; I shall be filled; she is laid waste.’ “Therefore thus says the Lord God: ‘Behold, I am against you, O Tire, and will cause many nations to come up against you, as the sea causes its waves to come up” (Ezekiel 26:2-3).
Be careful: God Protects His Children!
Humans should learn not to meddle with God’s business. A person who engages in God’s business without proper invitation may regret his (or her action). His action can provoke God if care is not taken. For example, a person who attacks the servant of God may have every reason to justify his action, but he may still end up sinning against God.
Servants of God are primarily answerable to God. We are not allowed to lift a finger against them for any reason unless God told us to do so.
Some servants of God may have committed gross errors, which violates bible standards. Such mistakes can provoke anyone and make us wonder why God still protects them, but a good Christian will take caution not to be hasty in judgment or take an undo action.
Believers must be cautious in dealing with issues that are delicate and can incur God’s wrath. Instead of playing the devil’s advocate and mismanaging your virtues, it is preferable to mind your business.
As Christians, we should devote our religious efforts to gospel evangelization. We should focus more on propagating the gospel to populate God’s kingdom. Every Christian should gauge his or her lifestyles to meet God’s standard of holiness.
The bible states,
“Therefore, laying aside all malice, all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and all evil speaking, as newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the word, that you may grow thereby” (1 Peter 2:1-2).
Sometimes in a bid to do the right things, we can provoke the anger of God. Yes, there are scenarios where we might be right, but the manner we choose to prove these matters!Click to tweet
