Wars and rumors of wars, devastation, hunger, the ways of the world. Man against man, nation against nation, cruelty, hatred, loneliness, fear. Natural disaster, man made disaster both demand a high price before their appetite will be satisfied. The ripple will become a stream, the stream a lake, the lake a river, the river an ocean as little by little evil encroaches into the heart of man, as human dignity, faith, trust and love erode.You feel no guilt, no remorse, no shame; your rebellion your sin has washed away any trace of righteousness, grace, mercy or love. There are no tears for treasures lost, no heartache for the hurting among you. Every way of a man is right in his own eyes, but the LORD weighs the heart.
May you seek to be reconciled to God, recognize how great is His love, and realize; In the beginning (O LORD) You laid the foundations of the earth, and the heavens are the work of Your hands. They will perish, but You remain; they will all wear out like a garment. Like clothing You will change them and they will be discarded, but You (will forever) remain the same, and Your years will never end.. the earth is the LORD’ and the fullness thereof, the world and they that dwell therein.
