Blogging thru the Bible/Will God Turn a Deaf Ear?

Will there come a time when God will turn a deaf ear to our prayers?   God told the Israelites to go into the land.  They refused to trust Him, even though He promised to go ahead of them and fight for them.  So He pronounced judgment on them and told them to head for the desert.  THEN, they decided they would go, even though He said it was too late, He wouldn’t be going with them.  So they got whipped & came back crying to God, but He wouldn’t listen.

I think the following verse is kind of scary.

Deuteronomy 1:45 (CJB)  “You returned and cried before Adonai, but Adonai neither listened to what you said nor paid you any attention.”

We need to quit putting God off while we go our own way, thinking we will use Him when we are in a foxhole, promising to obey when we are in dire straits.

Deuteronomy 4:1 (CJB)  “Now Israel, listen to the laws and rulings I am teaching you in order to follow them, so that you will live:…”

Maybe there’s a reason He says NOW.
