Warning Signs (365 Days of Daring Faith – DAY 57)

text size A A A

2 Chronicles 36:15 (NLT)
The Lord, the God of their ancestors, repeatedly sent his prophets to warn them, for he had compassion on his people and his Temple.

The world today is filled with warning signs. No matter who you are or where you live, warning signs exist all around you. When a storm, tornado, or hurricane is approaching, sirens alert us to the impending danger. When we are sick, the symptoms we experience are warning signs to let us know something is wrong.

Just as man has created warning signs in the world, God has given us warning signs in His Word. The consequences of sin, for example, is death. A lack of obedience and humility leads to judgment. When we choose to ignore God’s warning signs, we open up our lives to heartbreak and unfortunate situations that we could have otherwise avoided.

God gives us warnings to protect us, not to keep us back from having fun or living a happy life. By yielding to God’s will and striving to obey His Word, we will, in fact, live a better life than we ever imagined. The life we want to live, the life we dream of, is the life God Himself wants us to have. It’s called the abundant life, and it is the most fulfilling life you can live.

“Our failure to hear His voice when we want to is due to the fact that we do not in general want to hear it, that we want it only when we think we need it.”
— Dallas Willard
