Blessing After Burial
Good Morning Metro!
I hope the steadfast love and mercy of The Lord is encouraging you in your day.
I don't know all the ways the Holy Spirit was speaking to our church family yesterday, but speak He did! We have such a tender Heavenly Father, gracious in His every dealing with us. My prayer is that there is faith in every heart for the good work that began for so many who "buried" their idols. Once Jacob "let go" of Benjamin, Jacob experienced the blessing of God beyond anything he could have imagined. I don't presume to know all the ways The Lord will bless you as you "let go" of anything standing in the way of a more vibrant relationship with Jesus, but blessings do await you!
If you want to study idolatry a little further, or if you want to help your adolescent children grow in discerning how easily idols of all shapes and sizes can become our pursuit, then order a copy of Gods at War, by Kyle Idleman. Idols want to control us, and Idleman helps us to see a "clear path away from the heartache of twenty-first century idolatry back to the heart of God."
God bless each one of you!
