The Lord Regretted

Topic: God’s Heart Is Troubled By Our Sin

The Lord saw how great the wickedness of the human race had become on the earth, and that every inclination of the thoughts of the human heart was only evil all the time. The Lord regretted that he had made human beings on the earth, and his heart was deeply troubled.

Genesis 6:5-6 (NIV)

Daily Reading Plan

Psalms 119:1–72

Bible Versions:

Genesis 6:5–6 (MSG) — GOD saw that human evil was out of control. People thought evil, imagined evil—evil, evil, evil from morning to night. GOD was sorry that he had made the human race in the first place; it broke his heart.

Genesis 6:5–6 (NLT) — The LORD observed the extent of human wickedness on the earth, and he saw that everything they thought or imagined was consistently and totally evil. So the LORD was sorry he had ever made them and put them on the earth. It broke his heart.

Genesis 6:5–6 (AMP) — The Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination and intention of all human thinking was only evil continually. And the Lord regretted that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved at heart.

Devotional Thought:

What must God see when he puts his eyes on this world? It is a sad reality, but the conditions have not changed much, humanity is still sunk in wickedness. Even Matthew 24:37-38 says, “But as the days of Noah, so shall also the coming of the Son of Man. For as in the days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark”. This is the sad condition of humanity today, a state of continuous evil and perversity!

God’s heart was in pain ,”broken and saddened”, to see the miserable state of humanity in this world. It was so much pain that even this portion of the Bible tells us that He regretted having created man and put them on earth. Psalm 14:2-3 says, “The Lord looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there are any who understand, who seek God. All have turned aside, together they have become corrupt; There is none who does good, not even one.”

What about us, are we part of those who broke God’s heart? It’s sad, when wickedness and sin comes to dominate our life as believers. When we are bound by the same condition of evil and sin of this world. This saddens the Lord, his heart aches to see our condition. This is why Ephesians 4:30 tells us, “do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.” Today is the day to change our course and rid ourselves of all sin that we may have. That when the Lord may look at us, we may have a consecrated life, living in holiness before him.

Topical References:

Isaiah 63:10 (NKJV) — But they rebelled and grieved His Holy Spirit; So He turned Himself against them as an enemy, And He fought against them.

Psalms 14:2–3 (NKJV) — The LORD looks down from heaven upon the children of men, To see if there are any who understand, who seek God. They have all turned aside, They have together become corrupt; There is none who does good, No, not one.

Ephesians 4:30 (NKJV) — And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.

Psalms 53:2 (NKJV) — God looks down from heaven upon the children of men, To see if there are any who understand, who seek God.

  1. I don’t want to be like the rest I want God to always try to make God proud.my desire is yo be a good son to my father. Having the feeling I was created with purpose and I Did my best for my father instead of the Lord regretting he created me.thank you jesus for your mercy and letting me live to make a difference even through the wickedness, amen

  2. Thank God for his awesome mercy and love towards us. These past few days I have felt soo humbled before his presence and honored just to feel it. It is of great pleasure to know that there is a God who desires to have time with us and dominate every hour of our lives. My desire is to always know that he there and feel him so close everytime. I was blessed, thank you.

  3. This morring I just want to tank god beause I really BELIVE that we are living in the last days of Noah and one thing I know that my eyes need to be in The Lord beause we is the one I love and I’m great full for what we down in my life .. I’m greatful to see that my heart need to be broken in his ways..two see things diffrent in god eyes .. 🙌

  4. I thank god what he is doing in this time my heart is my god .. To look at life and just to let it go I can’t … But to see my self and to be broken .. I really BELIVE that we are living in the days of Noah days but to be people that just don’t look at like and let it be but to be women that going to make a DIFFRENTS in her life …🙌

  5. This makes me realize that our world is so corrupted and the people are so involved in this world! Brings burden and compassion for the lost , and that’s the reason God brought us to this world to speak the truth to the lost!

  6. Holiness, holiness is what I long for…. In a world of wickedness and sin it’s difficult to pursuit holiness but it’s not impossible. We as believers must strive and fight for what we believe and stand for, we must protect our lives from doing what we once did in the world. More than anything I don’t want to break God’s heart or disappoint him, or grieve the Holy Spirit “and do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.” Eph 3:40

    “How many times have I broken your heart, and still you forgive if only I’d ask..” -hillsong lyrics

  7. I never want to be apart of those who break God’s heart. My prayer this morning is that the Lord would help me so that I would always be of those that make his heart glad. He has been so good and so faithful, his love is so great upon our lives, all we can do in return is live a life that brings him glory and honor. Thank you God..

  8. How ungrateful would I be to break Gods heart ❤️When he has been my true Love!!! When we live in a world that is dominated by perversity and evil; I pray I can stand against the currant so the sinfulness if this world does not enter my heart and mind. I want God to see that is his Love that makes me strive towards his perfect will. I want to be a cause if joy to his heart and not an ache 🙂

  9. I think god for his conviction that I get, it helps me realize that the sins I commit are not right and I’m thankful for that because it helps me from going deeper and deeper into sin!! 🙏💖
