If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land. (2 Chronicles 7:14)
Ok, so I did not get much sleep and I don't want to end up being late for work, but I wanted to keep true to writing every day. And lo and behold, the verse of the day over at Biblegateway.com was actually pretty appropriate to what I've been studying!
It's funny, the Bible sure is full of a lot of admonitions from God for us to confess our sins and turn away from them.
Do you think that's because as humans we seem to have the moral memory of a gnat? I bet you if I put a verse like this up every single day, everyone who read it could go "oh yeah right I should do that today." And then the next day, and the next.
Ok, there are some of you who've been working on the fine art of not being a sinful blob, but I haven't quite gotten there yet. :)
But when I see how many times God had to remind His people, well, then there's hope for me.
