“So he said to his servants, See, Yo’av’s field is close to mine, and he has barley there; and set it on fire. Avshalom’s servants set the field on fire.”
2 Samuel 14:30 CJB
What do we do when we don’t get our way or what we want? Do we set fields on fire? This is what we see here Absalom does just that when Joab wouldn’t see him!
“Adonai, you are kind and forgiving, full of grace toward all who call on you.”
Psalm 86:5 CJB
See in this story here with Absalom he wanted his father David to forgive him, but David wouldn’t see him! So Absalom get’s desperate burns Joabs field so he would beg David to see him and forgive him! Problem is when we try to force people into things, it will always be halfhearted! The good news for us is we never have to corse Yeshua into hearing us because He is always available!
“Adonai is close to all who call on him, to all who sincerely call on Him.”
Psalm 145:18 CJB
Today, don’t think you have to convince or bribe Yeshua into forgiveness! Why? Because He is always willing and able to hear us when we call! Just don’t be halfhearted when you call on Him!
Have a blessed day!
