Jeremiah 14:10 This is what the Lord says about this people: ‘They greatly love to wander; they do not restrain their feet. So the Lord does not accept them; he will now remember their wickedness and punish them for their sins.’
There is always a limit beyond which there is no hope; we just don’t seem to see where that limit is at times. I see this in myself as well as in others so I know that it is not just me having a difficult time.
God saw this time and time again in His chosen people and had to put His foot down on more than one occasion. We too have to put our foot down when we are confronted by things that push us too far, things that are against God’s will.
But it is God’s judgement that they need to fear because our recourse is only earthly, but His is eternal.
