They stopped asking, “Where is the Lord
who brought us from the land of Egypt,
who led us through the wilderness,
through a land of deserts and ravines,
through a land of drought and darkness
a land no one traveled through
and where no one lived?” Jeremiah 2: 6
It was first line above that initially caught my attention this morning.
“They stopped asking,’Where is the Lord…'”
Observation: There’s a danger that accompanies a complacent heart…one that stops looking, stops remembering and stops thanking.
Healthy heart check
Am I continually seeking the Lord in my life and my current situation– for guidance, for wisdom and for understanding?
furthermore, if you call out to insight
and lift your voice to understanding,
if you seek it like silver
and search for it like hidden treasure,
then you will understand the fear of the Lord
and discover the knowledge of God. Proverbs 2:3-5
Am I continually remembering His faithfulness and all the ways He has blown me away in the past?
Once again I’ll go over what God has done,
lay out on the table the ancient wonders;
I’ll ponder all the things you’ve accomplished,
and give a long, loving look at your acts. Psalm 77: 11-12 (Message)
Have I thanked the Lord today for who He is?
“Come, let us shout joyfully to the Lord,
shout triumphantly to the rock of our salvation!
Let us enter His presence with thanksgiving;
let us shout triumphantly to Him in song.” Psalm 95: 1-2
Lord, overwhelm us with Your presence today. Give us hearts to see You in every detail of our life. Help us to remember You as our Redeemer, our Guide, and our Provider.
