Today ends the reunion time in Wallowa. One more family member is coming this morning for a visit over coffee and then we head home. At that point we start gearing up for the Lewis reunion this coming weekend.
This morning I finished the book of II Kings. Several hundred years have passed since God set the Israelites up as a nation and now they are no longer that. When I read this I wonder why they had become so blind to living for God? Then, I look at us today and it’s not so difficult to see, because we seem to be on a similar track. All over the world, when a country is grounded in God at its beginning, it seems to slip slowly into serving the ways of man rather than the ways of God. We continue to want to make us the god of our lives. There are numerous examples I could name, but I know each one of us can name our own as well as name ones which our own country is wanting to serve.
I know God is wanting me to keep my eyes on Him and my ears open to hearing His Spirit within. In addition to this He is wanting me to believe Him and His Spirit along with believing “I can do all things through Him who gives me strength.” Philippians 4:13. I can get discouraged when I look beyond what God is wanting me to do. I know He wants my eyes on what He shows me is my part in His Kingdom work. Today I want to stay focused only on this. GOD IS SO GOOD!
