The Good Supplier 

AUGUST 11, 2021

KEY FROM GOD’S WORD:

Hosea 7:14 And they have not cried unto me with their heart, when they howled upon their beds: they assemble themselves for corn and wine, and they rebel against me. .

THOUGHT ON GOD’S WORD:

     It seems to me that there may be a big misconception among people today as to how and why people are saved. Some feel if they can just get a person to say a prayer, they will have eternal life. Others think if they can scare them out of hell, they will be saved. I wonder if that might be the reason that today we may not have churches full of misguided people converted from hell and not sin. Possibly, others are feeling safe with the prayer they said and yet have not given their life over to God. Too many people come to God looking for a stamp of approval on the life they live now, instead of salvation. Yet others are simply looking for safety from hell, but not the Saviour.

     As we can see in the verse today, God has always wanted people to come to Him because they have given their heart to Him. Sadly, many loved the idea of what God can do for them, yet they have not loved Him with their heart. God’s desire is that we would love him with our whole heart. Not that He might be their “good’s supplier,” but truly loving Him for who He is. Then we realize that He is not a “good’s supplier,” but He is the “Good Supplier.” People need to humble their heart before a loving God and yield to Him in everything. Then, and only then the Bible says, He will direct our paths and supply all our needs.

   

CARRYING THAT THOUGHT THROUGH THE DAY:

     Oh God, forgive us if we have led someone astray to believe that the words of a prayer alone will save him or her. Forgive us if we have tried to scare him or her out of hell into heaven alone. Help us Lord to show them the Love of Jesus so they may turn to you with a broken and repentant heart and love you in return. Amen.
