will not always strive with us, Nor will He keep His anger forever.
is the last promise involving the word "always" that I found in the Bible.
part of this Psalm is a listing of the attributes of God and how the bless believers.
atheist once asked me, "Why does God allow all the evil in the world?"
The answer is that while God currently allows evil in the world now, there will
come a day when that ends... and all evil is eliminated. But, you Mr. atheist
probably do not want that day to come. Why? Because the day when God ends all
evil is the day of judgment.
God is being incredibly patient with us. Putting
up with our evil... our sin. He is continually giving us second chance after second
chance to: recognize He is God, and trust in Him as the only one who can save
us from sin. When the end comes, and God ends evil, the second chances also end.
will not always strive with us... He will not always put up with our law breaking
behavior (sinning). That day will come when He unleashes His anger... when He
no longer keeps His anger in check... and His wrath will be justly poured out
on sinners (law breakers).
So this verse is a warning. Turn to Jesus Christ.
Trust Jesus as your savior today.
