“And they have turned unto me the back, and not the face: though I taught them, rising up early band teaching them, yet they have not hearkened to receive instruction” (Jeremiah 32:33).
IS YOUR BACK TURNED TO GOD?
There is nothing that best demonstrates and indicates defiance, impudence, irreverence and rebellion as when a child a child turns his back to the parents whilebhe is being corrected. The act indicates but one thing: that the child does not appreciate thrve correction of the parents and so is not willing and ready to Chang.
When this becomes the case such child is usually left to himself to suffer and best the consequences of his stubborn and impudent action.
Prophet Jeremiah in our text talks about the certainty of the judgment of God upon Judah because of their repeated rebellions and sins against Him. This was inspire of His repeated warnings sand power to bring His predicted judgment upon them to pass. The fact that they turned their back and not their face to God shows their unwillingness to accept the rebukebof God and amend their ways.
It is sad that there are many people today who s behave like the people in the Jeremiah’s days. In spite of the warnings of God and His teachings through His servants and ministers, they stl choose to go their own way. The very things that God warns them against are the things they take delight in. Instead of repenting, they remain adamant in their sins and rebellion. Such people will certainly be visited with servers punishment and judgment.
Where is your face turned? Do you accept the rebuke of God and go ahead to make your ways right or do you stubbornly turn your back to God defiance and rebellion? Remember, it is futile to fight against God. Nobody does that and wins.
Submit to Him this moment and let Him cuddle you in His Love.
