Some view God as living in a far away place and sometimes will consider helping us in our meager ways, while other times just going about his business. Our Father is nothing like that as it is our sin which separates man from him, when really he wants to reason with us and cleanse us from our sin if we will allow him to. (Isaiah 1:16-20). Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil; Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land:But if ye refuse and rebel, ye shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it.
God plenty of times could probably say…..”What did I ever do to you?” after all through his loving kindness wants nothing more than for us to love him and do his will. Just as he had a controversy with those he brought out of Egypt and redeemed only to have them turn from him. WHY? (Micah 6:2-4). Hear ye, O mountains, the Lord’s controversy, and ye strong foundations of the earth: for the Lord hath a controversy with his people, and he will plead with Israel.O my people, what have I done unto thee? and wherein have I wearied thee? testify against me.For I brought thee up out of the land of Egypt, and redeemed thee out of the house of servants; and I sent before thee Moses, Aaron, and Miriam.
God is always willing to listen but it is the rebellious heart of man that causes him to turn from God even after God has stretched out his hand and redeemed or has given a miracle. God is long suffering and his mercy comforts, yet he has said the day will come when he must avenge for his righteous ways as people choose false teachings and nice sounding words that are not from God and they love to have it that way! (Jeremiah 5:28-31). They are waxen fat, they shine: yea, they overpass the deeds of the wicked: they judge not the cause, the cause of the fatherless, yet they prosper; and the right of the needy do they not judge.Shall I not visit for these things? saith the Lord: shall not my soul be avenged on such a nation as this?A wonderful and horrible thing is committed in the land;The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?
2 Timothy 4:1-4.
