So the Lord relented concerning this. “This also shall not be,” said the Lord God. (Amos 7:6)
God responds to the hidden intercession of the prophet by relenting. That is, He changes His mind because He is deeply moved by Amos’ plea. This is a puzzling mystery but also a glorious reality. At times, God does relent from pouring out His wrath on a nation. Contrary to popular thinking, the God of the Bible is not some rigid deity or some inflexible machine; instead, He personally responds in a dynamic dialogue with those who fervently pray and intercede for their nation.
In Living in the In-Between Times, Pastor Ralph Douglas West brings the story of the Old Testament prophet Samuel to life, showing you how God speaks in your “in betweens” and what it looks like to live faithfully in these seasons of waiting and wondering.
