Hosea 5:15 I will go and return to my place, Till they acknowledge their offence, and seek my face: In their affliction they will seek me early.
God says that He is stepping away until they realize that they have sinned. They will be allowed to continue in their suffering until they decide to seek Him.
When He is near and working in our lives there is blessing. When He steps away then there will be affliction. They need to suffer alone till they realize why they are suffering. When they figure it out they can call on Him. He says that they will do so early.
Are you living in sin and you know it? Have you decided to do things your way and ignored the will of God? Do you realize that He will leave you to suffer the consequences of your sin till you recognize that He really is God. He really does have a plan for your life!
It is time to stop the suffering. It is time to turn back to God and pray that He will hear you!
