2 Chronicles 20:7-9 (NIV)
" O our God, did you not drive out the inhabitants of this land before your people Israel and give it forever to the descendants of Abraham your friend? They have lived in it and have built in it a sanctuary for your Name, saying, 'If calamity comes upon us, whether the sword of judgment, or plague or famine, we will stand in your presence before this temple that bears your Name and will cry out to you in our distress, and you will hear us and save us.' -2 Chronicles 20:7-9 (NIV)
God commands and demands faithfulness and allegiance. He is God over all. If we stray , rebel, He will send something or someone to cause us to look at Him. God is not mocked. We must be attentive to Him, obedient and faithful.
Abba Father, forgive me that I have not been Your faithful son nor servant. I have wandered away, strayed from the narrow path. I want to follow You faithfully, completely wholeheartedly, the rest of my days. Help me to do so. Help to open my heart, eyes, ears to know You and to follow You.- Amen!
