Thou makest us a byword among the heathen, a shaking of the head among the people. My confusion is continually before me, and the shame of my face hath covered me,
Though Thou hast sore broken us in the place of dragons, and covered us with the shadow of death. If we have forgotten the Name of our GOD, or stretched out our hands to a strange god; Shall not GOD search this out? for He knoweth the secrets of the heart.
Wherefore hidest thou Thy face, and forgettest our affliction and our oppression? For our soul is bowed down to the dust: our belly cleaveth unto the earth. Arise for our help, and redeem us for Thy mercies' sake. (Psalms 44:14-15, 19-21, 24-26)
GOD will not leave us orphans, nor will He completely abandon His Church, but He has said that He will put out the candlestick of those congregations that deny Him in practice, even with His Name on their lips, and over their door. GOD knows who are His, and He will chastise His own. Judgement begins at the House of GOD.
GOD will respond to those that repent, and return to Him. He will bind up our wounds, and expose our weaknesses. He will restore the broken-hearted that come to Him on His terms.
If you are one of His and you seem to be wandering, or away from GOD, remember He has not forsaken you. If He is afar off, then it is we that have strayed, and the Good Shepherd will bring us back to His fold. He is mighty to save.
But if you don't know Him, His command for you is to repent and be born again. Unless you surrender to GOD on His terms and turn from your sIn, you are under judgement for your sIn. But, GOD is not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to the knowledge of the Truth. Jesus loves you and wants to establish a covenant relationship with you that is real and personal. Believe His Word and receive Him by faith in His finished work on the Cross of Calvary and He will give you a brand new life of discipleship and fellowship with Him that is abundant and everlasting.
