Let us, then, feel very sure that we can come before God’s throne where
there is grace. There we can receive mercy and grace to help us when we need
it. - Hebrews 4:16
Many times throughout the
history of mankind, nations have gone astray. Such is the case as written about
in the post “Actions to Take Now for the Good
Life”. Amos was telling the people that there is a process that does bless God’s people; a way to change
course away from their sins which included the oppression of the innocent,
taking bribes, depriving the poor of justice, and idol worship to mention just
Here we are in current times and
the warning from Amos continues to apply in the present. Many nations
throughout the world do not seek the Lord first. Even the United States of
America in which the motto is “One Nation Under God” has lost their way as
leaders no longer put an emphasis on integrity and upholding justice.
Albert Einstein once said “Learn
from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not
to stop questioning”. We must continue
to question: What does God want in the lives of His people? How can each
individual take action now to seek what God has for them?
Learning is a life-long process
so let us take every opportunity to ask questions, seek answers, and share with
others. God wants His people to seek every good thing and glorify His name. Let
us begin at this moment to give praise to the ONE who made this amazing
universe as we are inspired by this video: Lifesong– Casting Crowns.
