In an ever increasingly distracting world, it is easy to get off course. The constant chatter on TV, social media, radio, and a host of other venues, beckons us into the world of chaos.
Once distracted, we ramble on down a pathway we should never have embarked on and we get in trouble. Too often, once there, we begin to justify our stay, and our trouble only worsens.
Now confused and struggling, we wonder what to do; then God suggests an amazing solution . . .
One of my favorite passages in the Bible . . .
“Come now, let us reason together,”
says the LORD.
“Though your sins are like scarlet,
they shall be as white as snow;
though they are red as crimson,
they shall be like wool.
If you are willing and obedient,
you will eat the best from the land;
but if you resist and rebel,
you will be devoured by the sword.”
For the mouth of the LORD has spoken.
I just love this Scripture; God says; “Come now, let us reason together.” It is as if God has just poured a cup of coffee for you, and invites you to the table, One on one, to see if there can be a solution. God is awesome!
Even though you have rebelled, God wants to forgive you, but there is a condition, you must be willing and obedient. You have to be both.
It’s not enough to be willing, and it’s not enough to be obedient, you must be willingly obedient.
Settle this one before you start the day!
