Day 22 - three weeks +1 day
I write to remember. I choose to be reminded. I desire to learn from my experiences. I hope and pray to grow in my walk with the Lord.
Reading the book of Judges. Oh my, so much to digest and in disbelief what took place in the Old Testament. The history of events. Again, “remember, be reminded, learn, grow” or life is futile.
The Lord freed the Jews from slavery and then history says how many times they “forgot” what God did for them and they sought other Gods. The word of God clearly speaks of God being Angry. Testing his people. A constant theme of the God of the universe wanting to have a relationship with us and Oh what a struggle. Well, read the Old Testament and you’ll see what I’m talking about. I chuckle for a nano second how true it is. History repeats itself. Today, God through his mercy, grace and love has given us so much and yet how many Christians are walking in the world. Trying to fit in. Worshiping idol (ok, worshipping is a strong word… how about giving 99% of their attention to pursuing the things of the world. Success, finances, fame… ya know), Yes, we get so caught up in “our life”, not making God a priority - Praying, worshiping, reading His word. Yes, forgetting to keep Him in the center of our thoughts, words and actions. Let me say that again, “Keeping Him in the center of our thoughts, words and actions”. That is true Love.
I read the Old Testament to remember. I choose to be reminded. I desire to learn from the experiences of those in the Old Testament . I hope and pray because of what I choose (reading Gods word) I grow in my walk with the Lord.
Learning from other peoples mistakes is a brilliant thing to do,
