“Then I heard a loud voice from the temple, saying to the seven angels, “Go and pour out on the earth the seven bowls of the wrath of God” (Revelation 16:1)
The time will come when the Lord ends this age of rebellion. The time will come when your time is up. In one sense, both are at the same time. What will it take to conform you to Christ? Some will never be conformed and remain in eternal rebellion. But you are reading this, so I suspect you wish your rebellion to be overcome by the grace of the Lord in order to conform you to His image.
What shall you do? Will it take the wrath of God to get you to release what needs to be released, or will you willingly come into His presence and walk with Him according to His purpose? The Lord is calling you and desires that You walk wholly and fully with Him now and forever. Being saved is not a one-time feel-good moment. It is the reality of the continuing battle in this rebellious world between our desire to be with the Lord and our desire to be in charge.
Lord Jesus, You have come to lead me on the narrow path to be conformed into the image of a child of God. There are so many stumbling blocks in the way, but You know the desire of my heart. Lead me, O Lord, so that I continue day by day, and by whatever means, to humbly walk with You. You are the author and finisher of my faith. In You, I have hope. Guide me by whatever means I need this day to remain faithful to Your calling. Amen.
