Do not provoke wrath (Isaiah 12:1)

You will say in that day:
“I will give thanks to you, O Lord,
    for though you were angry with me,
your anger turned away,
    that you might comfort me.


It is hard to pacify someone who is on the height of their fury. When someone is angry, it seems like that the person evolved because he/she seems not like his/her usual self. God is patient but when provoked, He really gets mad at us. Imagine what had happened during Noah’s time, to Sodom and Gomorrah and to the Israelites at Mt Sinai.

But the best thing about God is that He is so loving. No matter how angry he is, just like our parents out there, His wrath turns away that He might comfort us.

We have done so many things that are unpleasing in the eyes of God. We all know He hates sin but we still keep sinning. If we could do a thing so as not to provoke Him to fury, we should do it, right? So we should get rid of doing wicked things. We should obey what God says and we will not be misled for as long as the Holy Spirit convicts.

A lesson we should apply based from this verse is that no matter how annoyed are we, we should never forget to show how we love our fellowmen and that we do care for them.
