While tossing the breakfast dishes (ha, be real Boo…it was just a banana peel and a cup) in the dishwasher and trash, I noticed our fountain outside was low on water and starting to make a grinding noise. I was already running late, but ignoring this deficiency could put an added strain on the motor and burn the whole thing out, so I grabbed a pitcher and went out to refresh the fountain. It began to whistle a happy tune and spewed forth happy, dancing water!
That grinding noise was a warning sign for me to make a correction. BINGO, HELLO! Doesn't God send us those sort of signs in our own lives?
Has He ever told you:
You are putting a strain on life and full of anxiety by trying to control this situation.
You are sick because you are working too long. I created a day of rest for a reason.
You just had a flat tire, because you are headed in a very wrong direction. Stop, turn around.
Your bank account is depleted. You might want to evaluate the difference of needs and wants.
The NIV references 112 verses related to warnings. Here are a few.
The earth opened its mouth and swallowed them along with Korah, whose followers died when the fire devoured the 250 men. And they served as a warning sign. Numbers 26:10
Listen to the love of your life…your wife.
Saul sent men to David's house to watch it and to kill him in the morning. But Michal, David's wife, warned him, "If you don't run for your life tonight, tomorrow you'll be killed." 1 Samuel 19:11
Hmm, guess most of us are somewhere between a youth and a king. I could say more on this one, but the NSA is monitoring me.
Better a poor but wise youth than an old but foolish king who no longer knows how to heed a warning.
I can't wait to meet Noah! Love this kind of faith.
By faith Noah, when warned about things not yet seen, in holy fear built an ark to save his family.
Had to through this in after a week of running into divisive people!
Warn a divisive person once, and then warn them a second time. After that, have nothing to do with them. Titus 3:11
