Hey its Friday!!!!! Glad about that!!! Some are camping out, some are going to a rodeo, some are going to a Red Hawks baseball game!! I'm one of the baseball attendees!!! Everyone goes in different directions these days!
I think sometimes we think the people in the Bible had something we dont have now, maybe more of something, but as I was reading this morning in Gen., I was reminded that they were people just like us. I read about Abraham being a father, how he had to lay his son down, about Sodom and Gomorrah and the worldly wickedness, about Sarah dieing and saying goodbye to ones we love, and I read about the desire of Abraham to have God ordained marriages of his children with the marriage of Issac and Rebekah. It all sounds like very familiar situations that we experience in the 21st century! The thought that struck my heart was, in all the experiences that Abraham faced with God's presence being very real, I too can know and see His presence in my personel situatons....... God has not changed at all!! We can have the same comfort that he received, we can have victory of the worldly temptations, we have joyous provisions for our sons and daughters for godly wives and husbands. We have the SAME God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob! I was encouraged as I pondered this, sometimes we get "bogged' down thinking, "if God would just come through like he did with those of our past." He will, He can!!
Hope you all have a good weekend!!!!
