Wow, to my surprise, reading this passage this morning, after all the controversy with Chick-fi-la this week! I did not write this passage, God did...
I read today, II Chronicles 15:12-15
"They entered into a covenant to seek the Lord, the God of their fathers, with all their heart and soul. All who would not seek the Lord, the God of Israel, were to be put to death, whether small or great, man or woman. They took an oath to the Lord with loud acclamation, with shouting and with trumpets and horns. All Judah rejoiced about the oath because they had sworn it wholeheartedly. They sought God eagerly, and he was found by them. So the Lord gave them rest on every side."
Wake up America! Can you even imagine the peace we might have if this nation would recognize God, and seek him with all our heart and soul? Can you even imagine, if we put to death all those who did not seek the Lord? God gave them rest for seeking Him. In fact, there was peace for 35 years during his reign. Almost unbelievable, huh? Why can't we just love and honor the God who made us. Each breath we take, is because HE gave it to us.
Ponder, seek, find, rejoice, proclaim, believe.
