Our fathers in Egypt did not understand nor appreciate Your miracles;
They did not remember the abundance of Your mercies nor imprint Your lovingkindness on their hearts, But they were rebellious at the sea, at the Red Sea. Nevertheless, He saved them for His name’s sake, That He might make His [supreme] power known. He rebuked the Red Sea, and it dried up, And He led them through the depths as through a pasture. So He saved them from the hand of the one that hated them And redeemed them from the hand of the [Egyptian] enemy. And the waters covered their adversaries; Not one of them was left. Then Israel believed in [the validity of] His words; They sang His praise (Psalms 106 7-12).
When we recount the days of life, the number of times we fell, the pain we caused our LORD every time we sinned, and/or stamped our feet and cried “it’s unfair”, we might wonder why G_d even loves us. Yet no matter how bad the day was yesterday, He still loves us today and still wants us to be part of his Kingdom not because He is driven by “numbers” but because He made us and is our Father. The Devil will always tell us, “you really did it this time” and “there is no coming back from this” knowing full well that the sin is a “smokescreen” meant to shroud our view and fill our sinuses.
You are an awesome G_d. All who come to you, you receive, all who ask for forgiveness are forgiven, and/or all who turn back to the cross are covered in the blood of the lamb. May your good Spirit guide us today. Please be with my families, my law enforcement officers, EM teams, military, my city, my state, and my United States. I remember those who are enduring illness and pain today may the balm of Gilead heal them today.
