Amos 3:7 God Always Warns

Surely the Sovereign LORD does nothing without revealing his plan to his servants the prophets. Amos 3:7

Amos brings out many warnings of coming judgment and destruction against various nations, including Israel. Their destruction is because of sin and rebellion against God. As Amos is giving these warnings, he reminds the people that God never does anything without revealing what He is about to do through the prophets.

Knowing what God is doing or going to do is a question that many people have all the time. People want to know how God is going to deal with a situation in their lives. They want to know when God is going to bring down judgment on those rebelling against Him.

If a person is open to hearing what the Bible says, he will be able to see that a lot of things that are occurring in life have already been prophesied about. The things that God is doing or is allowing to happen has already been promised by God.

Jesus and the prophets prophesied of trouble, persecution, hatred, sin, rebellion, natural disasters, and wars. At the same time they prophesied of judgment, destruction, building up, restoration, salvation, life, healing and more.

God is still doing things to this day. As each day goes by God is giving warnings of what is about to happen. He continually warns of coming judgment upon all people. At the same time He warns of salvation and restoration that He will bring to those who follow Jesus.

Jesus did not just suddenly appear on the earth without warning. God had already revealed what He was going to do. In the same way, Jesus will not suddenly re-appear at the second coming. God is already giving warnings.

In your life, God is wanting to do many different things. For each of those things, God is giving you a warning or revealing what He is going to do. Read the Bible to see what God says He is working on doing.

When a person is following Him with all of his heart, what does God say He will do?

When a person is rejecting God and following the world, what does God say He will do?

It will be no surprise as to what God will do, if you are willing to listen to God. He will reveal what He is going to do.

I pray today that your heart and ears will be open to hearing God; that you will understand the plans God has for you; that you will know what God is doing; and that you will live your life following Jesus.
