Turn To Me With All Your Heart…
If you spend time, as you should, studying, reading the Bible there is, or so it seems, a thread that runs through a great portion of all the writings. With as many Prophets, Disciples and Apostles as contributed to the Bible one would think… how could this be?
“Now, therefore,” says the Lord,
“Turn to Me with all your heart,
With fasting, with weeping, and with mourning.” ~ Joel 2:12 NKJB
We see this time and again – “…the Lord says turn to Me with all your heart…”
Not being the sharpest-tool-in-the-shed does not mean a person can’t pick up, quiet easily, that maybe we should turn to the Lord with all our heart in every situation. Jesus says we are to seek, first, the Kingdom of Heaven or seek, first, the Kingdom of God. First things first. Once again, not being the sharpest-tool-in-the-shed doesn’t mean we can’t all understand what is being said. We can and we should act accordingly.
The past few days there has been a burden that has not easily been addressed. It involves one of God’s children, which means great care should be taken prior to any decision made about which direction to take the conversation. Prayer, seeking the Lord, first, and seeking, first, the Wisdom of Christ – the Mind of Christ – is the only response there is.
Lest we forget how precious each of God’s children are in His sight. God loves all His children, but does that mean they will all be saved, redeemed and brought into the Kingdom of God?
Then will the LORD be jealous for his land, and pity his people. Yea, the LORD will answer and say unto his people, Behold, I will send you corn, and wine, and oil, and ye shall be satisfied therewith: and I will no more make you a reproach among the heathen: but I will remove far off from you the northern army, and will drive him into a land barren and desolate, with his face toward the east sea, and his hinder part toward the utmost sea, and his stink shall come up, and his ill savour shall come up, because he hath done great things. ~ Joel 2:18-20 KJB
Either the Scripture is the divine Word of God teaching us how to live and how to be a reflection of God, or it’s nothing more than a historical account of events.
