'“Come and let us return [in repentance] to the Lord , For He has torn us, but He will heal us; He has wounded us, but He will bandage us. After two days He will revive us; On the third day He will raise us up That we may live before Him. So let us know and become personally acquainted with Him; let us press on to know and understand fully the [greatness of the] Lord [to honour, heed, and deeply cherish Him]. His appearing is prepared and is as certain as the dawn, And He will come to us [in salvation] like the [heavy] rain, Like the spring rain watering the earth.” ' Hosea 6:1-3
The human mind is strange Who knows what goes on in our mind The heart seeks what it wants Only the spirit and their God knows a person heart
It’s Friday and Happy Friday and blessings to you this new month
Hope your week was good and I pray for a better weekend
The sadness and madness of the world continues Charm is deceitful but beauty is passing Many daughters have done well Many daughters cry out to be heard Many daughters wants a little kindness And any woman who fears the Lord She shall be praise She will excel in all things And her tongue is the law of kindness She is full of the spirit And her hands contains the fruit of the spirit Her works are praised by others
The madness in the world does not stop.
So as I continue in the madness of the Book of Judges. Chapter nineteen and twenty is not for the faint heart.
Ah! Could it get better or worse? Well, I was not surprised at what happened in verse nineteen? The drama and violence.
The madness continues and does it get better. No, do I close it and pack up? No, I like to read these things and see to the end.
Nothing is new under sun What has happened! Has already happened before and would be forgotten until it happens again Spoiler alert: When he cuts his concubine into pieces The body is no longer one Israel is divided and not serving the One God but everyone was in there own bubble of deceit They were now serving themselves It might have been physically but it was a reminder To look at the other parts of the body that was falling into sin They needed to come back to their God They needed to repent and become one Israel needed to come with a humble hearts Even when they were further away When they cried out God was always and already near to them The Lord is good He is God and not man The Holy One that dwells in our midst The Holy One that comes with Love and not terror When we listen to the Lord He will guide our steps and lead us in the right path He roars like a Lion The Lord our God and Father of our Saviour Jesus Christ is good In midst of the madness God is with us In midst of the storm God hears our cries It might not be how we want it But the Lord our God is a good God As Israel was defeated twice they finally sat down and listen Fasted and prayed This Book of Judges was packed with so many lessons: I have learned to never “miss the mark” Sometimes the greatest gift is not just unity but also justice And also the greatest fashion in town is self denial Covered with humility and compassion Above all remember your Creator before anything else Fear God and keep His commandments For this man’s all Everything else is vanity A grasping of the wind
