Return unto Him!
As I was searching for a particular Bible verse this morning, another verse caught my eye and seemed to "jump out" at me! I read and re-read this verse, and couldn't help but think how so many Scripture verses apply directly to our world today. This is from II Chronicles 30:9: ...for the Lord your God is gracious and merciful, and will not turn away His face from you, if ye return unto Him. ~ If you listen to the news, it can be downright frightening. Not only crime in your own city, but hearing about the strife among so many countries--and in particular--how certain countries are so against our U.S. ~ I feel very strongly that as Christians we need to pray earnestly for our country each day (and pray for our leaders!). And as the Scripture above states, we need to RETURN UNTO HIM!!! May I always do the best I can to pray for my country and live a life that honors my Lord.
