Jeremiah 44:7 Therefore now thus saith the LORD, the God of hosts, the God of Israel; Wherefore commit ye this great evil against your souls, to cut off from you man and woman, child and suckling, out of Judah, to leave you none to remain; 8 In that ye provoke me unto wrath with the works of your hands, burning incense unto other gods in the land of Egypt, whither ye be gone to dwell, that ye might cut yourselves off, and that ye might be a curse and a reproach among all the nations of the earth?
When you do this you are hurting yourselves, He says! It cuts you off from people. It takes away God’s blessings. It makes you lose what God would be doing to the point that the neighboring nations make fun of you!
You know what He doesn’t want you doing so why are you doing it?
Isn’t that the story of our lives? We know what God wants. We could do it but we prefer to just do our own thing. We prefer to just rebel and deal with the consequences. If you decide to do your own thing then do not try and blame it on God when bad things happen.
