They have stringed instruments, tambourines, flutes, and wine at their parties. So they do not recognize what the Lord is doing,
they do not perceive what he is bringing about.
Isaiah 5:12 NET
Why are people so stubborn?
Why do they wait to be in the middle of doom and heartache to turn to the Lord?
It has always been like this! As long as there is fun to be had, as long as there is singing and wine and dancing, all is good in their eyes!
But they don’t look to God! They don’t look around to what is happening! They aren’t paying attention to their own lives and priorities.
And then, pain and suffering happens and they are caught scrambling, coming out of their stupor to find solid ground!
Believers should have their eyes open to the world around them and be discerning towards the things of God.
And more than anything, they should check their relationship with the Lord and live lives that glorify Him daily.
Don’t be caught up in this world that you miss the eternal one that is coming. And it is coming!
God’s Word is true!
Father, with all the things in this life that desires my attention, help me to stay focused on you! Help me to make you my first priority, because everything falls into place after that.
