REVEALED WORD TODAY
// READ: PSALM 50:21; 141:5 //
21 When you did these things and I kept silent,
you thought I was exactly[a] like you.
But I now arraign you
and set my accusations before you.
5 Let a righteous man strike me—that is a kindness;
let him rebuke me—that is oil on my head.
My head will not refuse it,
for my prayer will still be against the deeds of evildoers.
When God keeps silence over a life his case is going beyond repairs. The silence of God does not mean consent. When God kept quiet over Balaam, he lost his prophetic grace and he became a soothsayer. He died the death of an enemy of God. Reprove must be interpreted as kindness for the Lord since He can choose to keep quiet about you. Jesus relaxed with Judas Iscariot with silence but rebuked peter severally. Which one do you prefer: silence of God or His rebuke?
PRAYER: Read and pray with Psalm 50:21
