These verses speak to me a bit more recently than in years past. The withheld pay cries out against the employer. I shudder to consider the employer’s future. I was up and typing this at three this morning; but as I finished and hit send, my internet connection was lost and so was my email. It spoke to mercy I hope God gives the past employers in our lives rather than letting this serious judgment stand. I think (I tried hard for a while to reconnect, re-submit, re-do and nothing would work…so I went to bed) my Precious Father God wanted me to receive His words that those unpaid debts to us are not overlooked by Him…even when we forgive and ask for mercy for the offenders. He takes His children and their work very seriously, and consequently, their wages. How much He loves us to allow us the chance to know Him better in those difficult times and still hold the offenders accountable. How much He loves the offenders to not let them get away with sinning. What a strong statement against the rich employers. THE Lord of Sabaoth is on this detail and He's a Warrior. YIKES. Thank You Sweet Lord for looking out for Your children. Help me to live for Heaven’s luxury and Your pleasure.
13 Is anyone among you suffering ? Then he must pray. Is anyone cheerful ? He is to sing praises. 14 Is anyone among you sick ? Then he must call for the elders of the church and they are to pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord ; 15 and the prayer offered in faith will restore the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up, and if he has committed sins, they will be forgiven him. 16 Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another so that you may be healed. The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much.
