God Forsaken

Grace is what makes the Father punish me when I do wrong. Yes, Grace!

It does not sound like it, but it is true. It shows He trusts me and is not happy with what I did. He expected me to do better. It shows He loves me and does not want me to go astray. It shows He is not done with me yet. Grace, God’s saving grace.

A place not to be is the “God forsaken” place. When I sin, and He is not disappointed. When I do wrong and He doesn’t care. When He no longer has any good expectations from me.

And because they had not the mind to keep God in their knowledge, God gave them up to an evil mind, to do those things which are not right;
Romans 1:28 BBE

Saul the king was there. While he was still on the throne, even in his prime, God was done with him. God anointed his replacement. There was no going back on the decision to get rid of him. He and his son; Jonathan, were killed the same day.

Eli the prophet was there; the God forsaken zone. While he served in the temple, God was done with him. The scriptures had earlier reckoned that God’s word became scarce. How much more could God be done with a prophet? While he was still in the office, God anointed his replacement too, and would rather speak to the little Samuel who could not even recognize his voice, than speak to “Daddy G. O. Eli.”

Like Saul, Eli and his sons died the same day.

To be God forsaken is the worst that can happen to a man. In fact, it is the final destination for anyone who refuses to acknowledge God.

This zone is not God’s will for any man. This is where grace comes in.

For us not to experience this, Jesus had to be there to pay the price. On the cross he shouted, “My God, My God why have you forsaken me?”

That is what I meant when I said grace is when God still has your time, so much that he is punishing you for your wrong doings so that you will make amends.

Jesus, himself took up the Godforsaken experience, so that you will never have it. There, the scriptures record, he was crying with a loud voice. I do not want to be there.

Ultimately, God will forsake sinners forever, in Hell. This should not happen to you.

Grace; purchased for us by Jesus is available today.
