When God began killing them, they finally sought him. They repented and took God seriously. Then they remembered that God was their rock, that God Most High was their redeemer. Psalm 78: 34-35 NLT
Then they took God seriously.
When did you first take God seriously? Did something happen in your life to cause your relationship with God to change? Was it a tragedy (at least for you)? What did you do to repent? Did you say a prayer or confess your sins to another person? How did God appear to be a redeemer? How did God save you? Were there specific things that God saved you from?
God wants to be taken seriously. Sometimes it takes a serious happenstance in our own lives for us to finally understand this. God wants to always be our rock and our redeemer. God wants our trust 100% of our lives. God desires, God craves our right relationship with him.
Yet, we spend a great deal of time flirting with God rather than taking God seriously. We play with God rather than hold fast to God. We forget God's saving actions in Christ Jesus. Now is the time to remember and to seek him.
God, we seek you. You are our rock and our redeemer. We love you. We seriously love you. In Jesus' name. Amen.
