Isaiah 28:12 To whom he said, This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest; And this is the refreshing: yet they would not hear.
God offered forgiveness and salvation. He offered them rest. He knew that they were exhausted. He promised them relief and refreshment. They still refused to listen. It matters not what God is offering. It only matters that people have chosen not to listen to God. God offerings blessings but the people do not want them if that means listening to, paying attention to, obeying, or submitting to God.
What is your attitude toward God and His Word? Are you so set against the Bible that you will even miss the opportunity to be blessed? Are you so stuck on making your own decisions that you refuse even to consider what God has to say?
It is time to set aside your prejudices and listen. It is time to consider what God has to say. It is time to come for the blessings. God loves you. He is at work in your life. He has so much more for you if you will seek Him. You find Him through His Word. You seek Him by listening. You seek Him by submitting. Will you today begin your pursuit of God?
