Pour out your wrath on them; let your fierce anger overtake them. Psalm 69:24
Now David has had enough, and the only prayer that makes sense is God's wrath to be poured out. Of course, the wrath of God isn't something we want to imagine. However, David knew the wrath of God was coming to those whose hearts have been hardened.
We don't like entertaining the thought of the wrath of God. We enjoy discussing the love of God but not the just punishment for our sins. Paul says it best in Romans 2:5
But because of your stubbornness and your unrepentant heart, you are storing up wrath against yourself for the day of God's wrath, when his righteous judgment will be revealed.
When the stubborn heart refuses to turn towards God, there are consequences. First, the storehouse of God's wrath will appear on the day of judgment. God cannot be mocked because what we sow, we will reap. It is incredible how cheap God's grace becomes when we ignore the fact of His wrath.
God's grace is there, but we should believe that God does have consequences in store for our actions. Our flesh can convince us that God will forgive so we can continue in our rebellious ways. We can do whatever we feel makes us happy because God's grace will look over us. Let us not cheapen the grace of God – He has invited us into a holy walk empowered by Him. Let us repent- turn towards God in all our ways and seek His holiness. God is there, helping us out of any mess we may find ourselves in. Don't resist his grace any longer; take His hand, and He will lead you out.
