Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.


2 Kings 17:7 & 13-14 (NLT)
  “ 7 This disaster came upon the people of Israel because they worshiped other gods. They sinned against the LORD their God, who had brought them safely out of Egypt and had rescued them from the power of Pharaoh, the king of Egypt.
 13 Again and again the LORD had sent his prophets and seers to warn both Israel and Judah: “Turn from all your evil ways. Obey my commands and decrees—the entire law that I commanded your ancestors to obey, and that I gave you through my servants the prophets.” 14 But the Israelites would not listen……..”

Father how complicated and catastrophic life became for Israel because they simply wouldn’t listen to you. And yet this problem is not unique to them. We see it all around us to day. Disregard for your word, disobedience to your will, and dishonor to your Name.

Father, help us not to ignore the history of your grace nor the necessity of your discipline. You are holy, may we be mindful of that. You are powerful, may we be fearful of that. You are loving, may we be in awe that.

Father, you have spoken in creation, through your Son and by Your Word. Help us to listen and to live in obedience to you. Help us to remember that we are not immune from the consequences of our behavior. Help us to experience the truth of Romans 12:2

 Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect. Romans 12:2 (NLT)”

Father, help us to listen while we have time before we learn after it is too late.
