“But this is what I commanded them, saying, ‘Obey My voice, and I will be your God, and you shall be My people. And walk in all the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well with you.’ Yet they did not obey or incline their ear, but followed the counsels and the dictates of their evil hearts, and went backward and not forward.” Jeremiah 7:23-24………….
God loves us so much He tells us hard stuff like this in His Word about rebellion against Him and going backwards instead of forwards to tell us we need to obey Him and go forwards not backwards. The perfect heavenly Father to those of us who become His adopted kids through faith in Jesus as Lord, He uses others’ wrongdoing and the awful consequences of sin to warn us that we need to live in a way honoring and pleasing to our beloved Father. What a blessing to have our Father God want us in forever, blessed, loving, sweet, comforting, merciful, fulfilling, lovely, life-changing fellowship with Himself! What a blessing He shows us the pathway of obedience that is fundamental to this sweet blessed fellowship with our heavenly forever Father to those of us who belong to Him through our lives devoted to Christ Jesus!
