Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 05/10/15

This week’s scripture is from 2 Chronicles:

Jesus Christ“… for the Lord your God is gracious and compassionate. He will not turn his face from you if you return to him.”   (2 Chron. 30:9b)

Often it seems our lives run before us as we try to keep up. How busy we become with everything that crowds our days. How easy it is to drift away from the Lord and become lost in the chaos that consumes us with work and obligations. How subtle is the drawing away that we may not even notice it until we are far from our Father and we are not hearing His voice; we might not even be listening.

We get caught up in the things of the world, in the attitudes of the world, yet they are not the Lord’s thoughts; they are not the Lord’s attitudes. Stop and listen for His voice; hear Him calling you back to Him, and back to His son.  Return to Him and renew your life in Him, for you belong to the Lord and He cares for you.

May the Lord bless you this very day with His grace and compassion.
