As I sit and ponder the world conditions,sometimes I feel like Gideon must have as they hid from the Midianites he probably felt hopeless seeing how bad things had gotten,and everything they were use to had changed. Much like the conditions in our world today,so much has changed we may not not be running and hiding but the tension & stress are being felt by most. Then I ask like Gideon Lord why is all this happening? Lord where are you? And I always get the same answer! I Am the same place I was when my Son hung on the cross beaten beyond recognition,I am still here and I care and love you and everyone that I have created,but I cannot and will not Force myself on any one. Mans heart is full of wickedness and evil that only I can change,but I’ve given to every man the right to chose. So as long as they reject me there will continue to be hate,heartache and pain,until I send my Son back to earth! Then all things will be made new-Wow! I certainly enjoyed that conversation with my Father.
Then I was reminded of this today’s scripture: Isaiah 55:8 “My thoughts are completely different from yours,” Says the Lord. And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine . For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts. I so thank God for his Great Comfort and willingness to always listen and help me.
Love in Christ Pat
I hope you have a good evening
