“Do not be deceived and deluded and misled; God will not allow Himself to be sneered at (scorned, disdained or mocked by mere pretensions or professions, or by His precepts being set aside). [He inevitably deludes himself who attempts to delude God.] For whatever a man sows, that and that only is what he will reap.” (Galatians 6:7)
“And let us not lose heart and grow weary and faint in acting nobly and doing right, for in due time and at the appointed season we shall reap, if we do not loosen and relax our courage and faint.” (Galatians 6:8)
Don’t you love someone who is upfront and honest about things? This is God being honest with us. He is setting a boundary here for mankind. God refuses to be taken lightly because He is GOD. It’s better to be openly hostile that to just pretend.
But God always tempers is honesty with compassion. In the very next verse He says “let us not lose heart.” God is positive and He loves a positive attitude!
There are two sides to a coin. “Whatever a man sows, that and that only is what he will reap” is not a negative statement. Those who are truly in love with God, who spend their lives pursuing Him and who take His precepts to heart and live them, are also going to reap the Kingdom of God. Their lives will be absolutely FULL of God! A life full of God is a wonderful thing.
Beloved, choose today to be real with God as He is real with you. You will see in time that your life will be full of God in so many ways…and that is a wonderful place to be!
