to forget about turning to God.
I start doing my own thing –
making my own plans –
filling up my calendar –
acting like I’m in control.
But – when something bad happens – I immediately turn to God.
Does this sound familiar to you?
When bad things happen, I am instantly reminded that I am not in control. I know who is in control – God.
I turn to God because I am also instantly reminded that my plans are foolish when they are not directed by God.
Turning to God – its my automatic response when something goes wrong. I just need to get better at living out these truths every day – with every thing – good and bad.
This isn’t a new issue with any of us.
God tells us in Jeremiah that his people “have turned their backs to me and not their faces; yet when they are in trouble they say, ‘Come and save us!’.
God’s people – fickle, hard-hearted, unfaithful.
I don’t want to treat God like that. Do you?
Please help us turn our faces towards you every hour of our day, Abba Father.
