“God, who is enthroned from of old, who does not change— He will hear them and humble them, because they have no fear of God.” Psalm 55:19
“Forgive me Lord; I am so sorry you had to retrieve the old 2×4 to teach me THIS lesson! I sat down to write a few minutes ago, all “self-righteous” and began to talk about the wickedness in the world. I am sure I heard God whisper, “You are responsible for allowing the wickedness into your home. You invite it in!”
Yes, I need noise when I am home; being raised the oldest of six children in a home that was always open to visitors might have contributed to it. So, until this very moment, I keep the television on. No excuses, Lord, but I needed that board upside my head to understand. As a counselor I should have realized ages ago that even background noise can penetrate the mind of man (or in my case, women).
The world that surrounds us IS wicked; the prince of darkness – the enemy of God – rules it! Don’t get me wrong; God IS in ultimate control; David’s words above are as true today as they were when penned but satan runs rip shod in the world, every day! You have shown me that a local radio broadcast (WPOV for locals) contains YOUR truth! Beginning this moment, I will invite YOUR word into my home!
Please Lord. You’ve spoken with me, forgiven my careless stupidity and allowed me to make a new, prayerful resolution. Remind me, hold me accountable to Your words and not invite the evil of the world into my home!! In Jesus name, Amen!
