Finding God in the every Day

6 Traits of Fierce Leadership | Intentional Habits to Practice

Week 2 Day 2

Finding God in the ever day

Deuteronomy 28:49-5049 The Lord will bring a nation against you from far away, from the ends of the earth, like an eagle swooping down, a nation whose language you will not understand, 50 a fierce-looking nation without respect for the old or pity for the young.

            As Moses was giving his farewell speech he warned the Israelites about disobedience to the Lord God. We have seen a culture grow up around us which fits rather well the description in these verses. As we look and note that the elderly are disrespected and devalued, as the culture makes little demi-gods of some children while at the same time continuing the wholesale slaughter of the unborn it is with no small wonder that many of us realize the loss, the fading of what was at best perhaps an illusion. I believe that the Christian value system that should have been the hallmark of a truly American culture has been all but obscured in our headlong rush to an wholly untenable kind of diversity which is not values free, rather it has become value-less in that truth has become a relative concept, and righteousness is whatever the individual might say it should be,

            Truth and righteousness are, and always have been what God says they are. Jesus, the very son of God proclaimed himself the embodiment of truth. Imagine, the “Way, the Truth, and the Life” (John 14:6) living, breathing, walking among us. I am swept away by joy when I contemplate the idea. How wonderful to not have to “search” for truth. The babbling of a million philosophers down through the ages cannot  even come close to any other possible conclusion than that Jesus, is the very truth they have been seeking. (See 2 Corinthians 4:4)

            Regardless of what culture says I come down on the side of Job and I agree with him when he says; “Though he slay me, I will hope in Him.” (Job 13:15)

  1. I really appreciate these posts so much!! Lost my Dad 2 years ago at age 96, nothing shows how much seniors are devalued than the things witnessed in the nursing homes.
