When we respond to opposition from culture or government as God desires, instead of just reacting out of fear or anger, He sends His power to equip us to keep doing His work with boldness. That’s REAL power; that’s the power we need to seek.
When we break our promises to be faithful to God and faithful to our spouses, we can count on God to serve us up some “chin music” to expose our selfishness and get our attention before our relationships with Him (and our spouses) are damaged beyond repair.
We wear God out when we accuse Him of denying His people justice and favoring the wicked. God wants us to know that He is coming in judgment of the wicked…and of the righteous, so we need to be prepared.
