Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.
1 John 5:12 ESV
1 Kings 14
The world of politics has always been interesting because over time nations are changed for the good or for the bad depending on if the leadership and the peoples hearts are for God or not. But I know because of the mercy of my God, there is always kept a remnant of those who truly have faith in Him.
Wow, just thought this reading Kings; The Lord has His remnants of people!
Faith enough to move mountains into the sea is inactivated with unforgiveness.
Meditate & Apply: I need to pay attention to the political arena but not get caught up in it. My part is to pray. I am called to the Gospel and not to politics. This is something that I have to remind myself for it is easy to get caught up in all of the injustice in our world! The Lord has His remnants of Believers even under ungodly governments. Lord, may I be a person of forgiveness in all situations for You have forgiven me of so very much!
Thank you. Forgiveness is a choice. I will never forget how that statement floored me! What do you mean IIIII have to forgive? It was so and so who did the harm!!!! Gosh! Without Jesus, I have an incorrect thinking process that goes downward FAST! I suddenly hear it even more - all the complaining and the latest, greatest - BAD story!
Praise God for Jesus Christ and His Believers who love Him and speak life!
Thank God for his remnant - This reminds me of where it was Elijah who God told he had many who hadn't bowed their knee to Baal. Wow faith inactivated by unforgiveness, so true! 70x7, must tackle unforgiveness right away! Sigh, some days are easier than others.
Not only some days but some people!
