A Morning Message Thursday, May 4, 2017

Categories: Morning Messages

Good Morning! Thursday has arrived and issued in “Star Wars Day”.   May the 4th be with you!  The rain continues, however the forecast indicates it ending today.  We indeed hope for some dry weather.  We had a packed house at church last night.  I am glad Jimmy let his gut be his guide in preparation, we had enough food because he just felt like we would have a crowd.  Carol ran over a deer on her way to Rolla this morning.  It was dead in the road and she felt like it didn’t damage the car.  I am just glad she is OK.  Stay dry out there!  Be a blessing to someone today!.

if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.     2 Chronicles 7:14 NIV

A powerful verse that many have invoked over the years.  Clearly God wants us to humble ourselves and pray.  God wants us to seek his face and turn from our wicked ways.  We all should do that.  I want us to revisit the humble part.  I have heard this used too many times in a less than humble way.  I have heard people use this verse while pointing their finger at those they feel are the ungodly, the heathens in our land.  We need to take great care because we slip into the role of the wicked.  We take on wicked ways when we feel ourselves above others.  I ask you to pray this verse today and often, but please look first into your own heart and then with grace love those around you.  Love wins!      Just my thought for today.
