“But because you are stubborn and refuse to turn from your sin, you are storing up terrible punishment for yourself. For a day of anger is coming, when God’s righteous judgment will be revealed. He will judge everyone according to what they have done.” Romans 2:5-6
Stubbornness is a personality trait in which a person refuses to change his opinion about a situation or refuses to change his mind about the action that he has decided to take. A stubborn person has a resolute adherence to his own ideas and opinions. I can be a stubborn person. Being a stubborn person can be good in some ways. Being stubborn at times means that we are committed to our beliefs and we will not change. We will not be led astray. The bad part of being stubborn is when God leads us to repent of our sins and we refuse to move from our position of sin. God knows how to deal with my stubbornness. When I come to the point that I will not move, God always sends something into my life that changes me to the way God is leading. More than anything else in my life I want to obey God and follow where He is leading. When I have my doubts about something, God tells me to start digging and see what is right. We need to realize that unless we turn from our sin, God’s judgment will follow. God will judge all of us on what we have done. King David failed God in many areas of his life, but he always repented and followed God’s leading. God even says that David was a man after His own heart. Let God use your stubbornness to do good works for Him and advance His Kingdom.
