Anguished by a vision of the coming judgment, Amos interceded for the people by crying out for God’s mercy, and God relented. Alistair Begg shows us how this passage reveals the sovereignty of God, the security of true believers, and the power and mystery of prayer. When God relents in response to prayer, it is not because He is indecisive or indifferent to sin, but because He is faithful and patient and desires our repentance.
1This is what the Lord God showed me: behold, he was forming locusts when the latter growth was just beginning to sprout, and behold, it was the latter growth after the king's mowings.
