He who hardens his heart will fall into calamity
Accepting the Lord’s word is tough. It’s can be difficult not to harden one’s heart.
Many times I’m struck by the heart of King David in the battles he faced. His frequent victory was that he didn’t fight them in his own strength.
We face our battles too. Not the battles of Kings, but our own personal wars.
Our challenge… to accept God’s warning not to harden our hearts… a word given for our own good… not as a punishment, but a caution.
We can struggle not to let our hearts harden. We don’t want them to but when we can’t stop them hardening… it’s then we need to cry to the Lord… for repentance to come to us… for us to be able to bring our hearts back under the authority of the word of God.
His “foolishness” starts where our own wisdom ends… who can fully understand His ways? They are far above ours.
The word of God is powerful.
