Devotions 22-02-07

Ps 44:1-3
"O God, we have heard with our ears, our fathers have told us, the work that You did in their days, in the days of old. You with Your own hand did drive out the nations; then You did plant them; You did afflict the peoples, then You did spread them abroad. For by their own sword they did not possess the land; and their own arm did not save them; but Your right hand, and Your arm, and the light of Your presence, for You did favor them."

God's Word is filled with stories of what God has done for His people. Why would we ever walk away from His truth and what He instructs us to do? Yet, we do even today. We allow the things of the world to attract us away from time in the Word and prayer. We are pulled away from God to things that do not satisfy us and actually destroy us.

Just as God gave Israel their land so God has given us so much in the free world but we allow sin to gradually take over our land. Soon God will have to bring judgment on what we are allowing and we will lose much of the freedoms and blessings we once had. God hates sin and will bring judgment against sin.

Lord, I am grateful for all You have given me and my family. Help me to lead the family as I ought and to protect our family from the awful sin of the world. Help our family to truly seek God and to follow His ways regardless of what is going on around us.
