I had planned on blogging my faith journey for the next little while, but that was before life as we know it changed so drastically.
My devotion this morning was Ezra 8:21-30. Some of the Israelites were returning to Jerusalem after being captive in Babylon for 70 years.
For some reason, this resonated with me this morning, and it seemed to speak to me of our current condition. In verse 21, Ezra calls on the people to humble themselves before God. Then he prays for a safe journey for all of them.
I realize we are not traveling 900 miles like they were, but we are sure in uncharted waters. We are certainly not “living life as usual”. We could become very stressed, worried, scared; and many of us may be, in some degree or other, in those emotional places.
The ONLY CONSTANT in our lives is God. Can I get an amen?
So, back to the Scripture of this morning, let’s humble ourselves before God. Let’s pray for wisdom to fight and defeat this enemy called COVID-19. Let’s pray for the Peace that only God can give during this time. Let’s pray for our leaders, and for one another.
“May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind be always at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face; and the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of His hand.”
See you next time…
