12/13/14 Daily Devotion

Malachi 2:17 You have wearied the Lord with your words.“How have we wearied him?” you ask. By saying, “All who do evil are good in the eyes of the Lord, and he is pleased with them” or “Where is the God of justice?”

Have you ever considered the effects of our sinful nature on God? Have you ever considered how our continual propensity towards sin makes God feel? God cannot be happy when we sin, especially if it is something that we have already conquered, something that has crept back into our lives. Malachi says that the people of God have wearied the Lord with their words. Our words are a direct result of our actions, a direct result of our hearts’ desires; and they can have an adverse effective on our relationship with God, especially if it is a continual thing, especially if it is constant part of our daily lives. God does not get used to our faults, because He wants them to improve to the point where they become nonexistent. They must weary Him. He must become weary of our sinful tendencies. He must because it makes sense, but also because scripture declares it to happen. We must strive to live for Him at all times. We must try our best not to weary God with our sinful desires, but instead honor Him with our religiously focused lives.

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help me become a person that is ready to stand before You in judgment.
