I am still a little less than amused about the church's seemingly changed purpose around patriotic holidays to go from praising God to praising a nation. Sorry. I guess that's a little bit of a bitter exaggeration, but not really. But that's not what I'm going to be posting about today. I just thought you might be interested.
In today's devotional post, we are going to see something which seems to be everywhere in the Old Testament.
God returns to His people, to keep covenant and mercy. Despite all the sinfulness of the people, He is always ready to bless His people.
It's in the book of Nehemiah, Esther, even the book of Ruth, the point always seems to be that even when it doesn't seem like it, God is working things out for His people. Maybe that doesn't mean the best of circumstances. But it always means that we have something to be excited about.
So maybe it's that God really does care about His people. Crazy thing, right?
So don't give up on Him whatever your life may look like.
