Trust & Obey God Because He Loves Us :)

A friend reminded me today that Justice will also come for those who say they believe, but don’t really.

There will be many who will say to Jesus just “how much they did for Him, but Jesus will say, “I do not know you”.

God shares with us in His Word what can happen for True Believers versus what can happen to those who do not really believe:

Elijah announced a great drought! But God took care of Elijah, because Elijah Trusted God and Obeyed Him!

Elijah Announces a Great Drought

17 Now Elijah the Tishbite, from Tishbe[a] in Gilead, said to Ahab, “As the Lord, the God of Israel, lives, whom I serve, there will be neither dew nor rain in the next few years except at my word.”

Then the word of the Lord came to Elijah: “Leave here, turn eastward and hide in the Kerith Ravine, east of the Jordan. You will drink from the brook, and I have directed the ravens to supply you with food there.”

So he did what the Lord had told him. He went to the Kerith Ravine, east of the Jordan, and stayed there. The ravens brought him bread and meat in the morning and bread and meat in the evening, and he drank from the brook.” – Kings 17:1-6

And then, of course, there were the results for those who refused to Trust & Obey God:

“16 Then the word of the Lord came to Jehu son of Hanani concerning Baasha: “I lifted you up from the dust and appointed you ruler over my people Israel, but you followed the ways of Jeroboam and caused my people Israel to sin and to arouse my anger by their sins. So I am about to wipe out Baasha and his house, and I will make your house like that of Jeroboam son of Nebat. Dogs will eat those belonging to Baasha who die in the city, and birds will feed on those who die in the country.”” – Kings 16:1-4

A great drought will eventually come, Prepare, Pray, Obey God and Be Ready!
