I am checking in with you again this morning with my YouVersion devotion selection for today. It is really good and I think you will like it. You might even find it helpful as you interact with people who deny our faithful and glorious GOD.
Blessings to you Dear Friends +++
Remember YOU have the God-given RIGHT to do right in this wrong world!
A cynical French astronomer once bragged to J.W. Hawley, “I have swept the universe with my telescope, and I find no God.” To this, Hawley simply replied, “That is as unreasonable as for me to say I have taken my violin apart, have examined each piece, and I find no music.” Hawley’s words were wise and silenced the skeptic. Most of the time, we have to notice the subtle causes and effects of life to see God. However, there are times when He makes His presence known most dramatically.
Elijah had spent his life trying to convince a straying nation to come back to the one true God. Now it was time for a showdown. Gathered on Mount Carmel, the helpless prophets of Baal danced and chanted all day for a display from their god. After they exhausted their resources, Elijah told them to step aside. In his brief prayer, Elijah called on God to show Himself as the true God. God did so, and revival broke out (1 Kings 18:20-39).
In our day, God is again displaying His power in the world. These are times of great revival, and we are seeing dramatic miracles in ministry. Pray with us today that God will continue to move that men may know. Let it be known this day that You are God in Israel.
