Scripture: Genesis 4:6-7
Then the Lord said to Cain, “Why are you angry? Why is your face downcast? 7 If you do what is right, will you not be accepted? But if you do not do what is right, sin is crouching at your door; it desires to have you, but you must rule over it.”
God comes to Cain and warns him. How gracious is it of God to reach out to us when we were the ones who did wrong?
How does God warn you?
God often speaks through our conscience, Scripture, circumstances, other people, and His Spirit speaking to our spirit. Are you looking for those warning signs? Are you sensitive to God's movement in your life?
Unfortunately, Cain didn't heed God's warning and ended up regretting it. Let's not follow his example, but let us pay attention to God's warnings and thank Him for them.
