“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Deuteronomy 32:20

TODAY’S WORD…

.

The Lord said:

I will hide my face from them,
I will see what their end will be;
for they are a perverse generation,
children in whom there is no faithfulness.

.

– Deuteronomy 32:20 (NRSV)

.

.

REFLECTION…

.

We have been warned!

When both people and their leaders forsake the Lord

and become utterly obstinate and faithless,

God’s saving presence will disappear;

His help and protection will be no more.

.

The Lord is warning us:

if the world carries on contradicting and cursing the Gospel of Christ,

with so many of us Christians distorting our religious principles

as we become more selfishly obstinate and stubborn,

as well as self-centered and inflexible in our ideas and practices,

– that will bring about our ruin!
.

Am I becoming one of His faithless children?

Do I firmly believe and totally rely on the truth

and importance of Scripture and the Gospel?

.

It is faith only that can unite us to God

and produce love and obedience.

It is faith only that can lead us from earth to God’s heavenly Kingdom.

.

Without faith it is impossible to please God!

.

.

.

QUOTE…

.

“Without faith it is impossible to please God,

because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists

and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him.”

.

– St. Paul (Heb 11:6)

.

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Increase my faith, Lord;

increase my love for You and my trust in You.
