Proverbs 2:4-5 If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures; Then shalt thou understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God.
As the Pastor of an average size local church, I cannot tell you the number of times I have heard a mother or father say, “If they would have only listened, I tried to warn them.” Neither can I recall the number of messages preached on obedience to God, only to find someone trapped in the grips of sin latter, and I have thought to myself, “If they would have just listened to the message.” All too often, we find people who have run from the truth and destroyed their lives and are now in seemingly helpless conditions. I wonder if they are not saying in their heart, “I wish I had listened when I had the chance.”
I have a bit of good news for you today. If you are still breathing and can read this devotional, there is still hope for you. No matter your condition today or your sense of hopelessness, God is still in control. Jesus is the same forever. He still loves you just as you are. He still wants to make something of your life right where it is. If you have found yourself struggling with the temptations of this old world, Jesus understands the torment you are going through. He is waiting to change your life if you will completely give it over to Him. The question again today is… Will you listen NOW?
Today is the day of salvation. Make your life count for the Kingdom of God. Give yourself completely to Him and watch Him do miracles in your life. You can almost hear God leaning down from heaven and asking … “Can you hear me now?”
