Psalms 68:6 (NLT) “God places the lonely in families; he sets the prisoners free and gives them joy. But for rebels, there is only famine and distress."
Jay was just a little child when God began to speak to him about his future. This made him a very happy child. But as he grew and began to have wishes, he began to wish for things that were not captured in what God had shown him and he eventually veered off God's plans, chasing after his own wishes. After several failed attempts at becoming his dream man, he returned to God seeking pardon and restoration. Yes, God pardoned him but he had suffered multiple disappointments, pains, and failures.

There is hope for the lonely because God can make them a home. There is also hope for the imprisoned because God can set them free, but there is no hope for the rebellious, there is nothing for them in God. To be rebellious is to willfully turn away from God and/or His commandments. This sin was equated to witchcraft and the judgment for witchcraft was death.

“For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the Lord, he hath also rejected thee from being king” 1 Samuel 15:23 KJV.

“Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live" Exodus 22:18 KJV.

There is nothing good in knowing what God wants and refusing to do it, the least severe of its consequences are famine and distress. The decision is yours to make!

Go into today knowing that God's commandments are for your good. Make up your mind to obey them.

Prayer: ask for God's forgiveness for your past disobedience and rebellions. Ask God to restore you.
