Food For Thought

God is jealous, and the Lord avenges; The Lord avenges and is furious. The Lord will take vengeance on His adversaries, and He reserves wrath for His enemies … The mountains quake before Him, the hills melt, and the earth heaves at His presence, yes, the world and all who dwell in it. Who can stand before His indignation? And who can endure the fierceness of His anger?

Nahum 1:2, 5-6 NKJV

There is a mocking of God, His word, and even His authority that takes place today that doesn’t quite make sense to me. God is the Creator of all things – whether you can see them or not. God is Lord over what is known and unknown. As the prophet Nahum points out, the earth answers to Him and quakes before Him! I don’t know about you but such power and authority humbles me in fear.

Because I fear the Lord, I choose to do my best not to make Him upset with me! What about you? I believe that all of us should live in a manner where we certainly respect God and His authority. Yet, many people are disrespectful of God. Rather than trusting in the Lord and living in a manner not to upset Him, most choose to live in a manner that dishonors Him. God is a jealous God as He made clear to Israel, and that still stands true today.

If the earth quakes merely at His presence, what do you think you would do in His presence? This is the question that Nahum asked the people of his day? God should be honored. God should be respected. Dishonoring God angers Him and there is nothing that can withstand the fierceness of God’s anger.
