A person who only sees the enormity of the Lord’s power is consumed by fear, but a loving relationship with Him transforms fear into awe and reverence. What is your relationship with the Lord like?
God is everywhere and all-knowing. There is no point in trying to flee from Him. Let us not be like Jonah, whose circumstances deteriorated from bad to worse when he disobeyed God’s instructions to preach in the city of Nineveh.
We see from the fate that befell the Edomites that we will reap whatever we have sown. Let their unfortunate end spur us to examine our lives and our choices.
Don’t let the trappings and trinkets of the world fool you into an inflated sense of self. Everything we have comes from the Lord. He has the power to make the strongest small and to bring the proud down. Let us not forget that, apart from Him, we have nothing.
