Amos 9:10, “ All the sinners of my people shall die by the sword, which say, The evil shall not overtake nor prevent us.”
This verse reminds me of a certain type of type of people. This type of people is the type that feel they are exceptions to the rule. Notice in the verse how the people said that the evil would not overtake them. They believed they were fine just the way they were and didn’t need to change. They thought they would be fine even though they were told what would happen if they didn’t change.
This reminds me of a lot of people today. They know God says one thing, but they don’t listen. This can only be one of two things. Either they just do not believe God or they feel that it doesn’t apply to them. They have the, “That won’t happen to me” mentality. This is a dangerous mindset to have.
There is nothing about us that makes us exceptions to what God says. If God says that our sin will fund us out, it will. If God says that sin brings death when it is finished, it will. This does not just apply to others; it applies to us as well. Let us realize today that we are not exceptions to the rule, and let us do our best to do what we know is right.
