His Way

Obadiah 1:15-21

Obadiah was written not only as a prophecy against Edom, but also as an encouragement to Israel. In it is pronounced one of God’s eternal principles: “As you have done, it will be done for you.” The world would say, “What goes around comes around,” and this is true to a great extent.

One spiritual danger for us can be that we find ourselves watching and waiting for our enemies to get the punishment due them. God frees us from this kind of bitterness through the simple truth stated in Obadiah 1:15 and then expounded by Jesus in the Sermon on the Mount: “So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you” (Matthew 7:12). In so doing, we trust the results to God and His perfect ways. Furthermore, it leads us to realize that no one needs Jesus and His grace more than us today, and we have in Him all that we could ask or imagine. Would I focus on Him today and trust that He is in control of all things, both in this world and eternity?

    FYI — The printed version of today’s devotional includes the words to “Spirit of God, Descend Upon My Heart” but credits the words to “Cleanse Me” by J. E. Orr instead.
    Give of your best to the Master.
