March 4, 2022

When circumstances change in your life that is contrary to the life you imagined, do you reach out to God, or do you blame him for your situation? I know you are saved, and the thought probably never crossed your mind to blame God for anything, but if you ever did, I suggest you grovel for his forgiveness. He makes it a point in Revelation 16, though this chapter is not about us, we can learn about God and his character by observing his actions toward those who reject him and choose Satan. In this chapter, he is pouring out his wrath from the seven bowls on those who shed the blood of the saints, the saints are me and you and our brothers and sisters in Christ, and anyone who harms us will pay the price. From his treatment of the demonic, we learn that he wants us to repent and not curse him for our situation because he’s the only one who can remedy it. Reading this chapter makes me thankful that he snatched me from the fire and bought me with His redeeming blood. Be grateful that you are part of his chosen. 

They were scorched by the fierce heat, and they cursed the name of God who had power over these plagues. They did not repent and give him glory. Revelation 16:9
