(Kezia is getting ready for exams so I'm doing her post today for her.)
What does it take to get our attention?
In Exodus 7:3 it says:
But I will make Pharaoh’s heart stubborn so I can multiply my miraculous signs and wonders in the land of Egypt
Sometimes we need that too....to be reminded that God is in control. He is in control of unfortunate circumstances. He is in control of the outcome. He knows exactly how it will all play out. Through blood, frogs, gnats, flies, and more....God is in control. He can use difficult situations to bring people to a place where they are without doubt that God's power is infinite.
In the NT readings, this verse stood out for me:
It's interesting to note that evil thoughts come in same sentence as murder. Sin is sin. Sin is what separates us from God. Without repentance, we cannot be clean from our sin. From our thoughts come actions and where are thoughts are evil, our actions follow. May we strive for clean thoughts and actions that honour God.
