Teshuvah – Day 25 (9/15/17)

Posted: September 15, 2017 in Teshuvah 40 Day Devotional

Three weeks ago today Hurricane Harvey made landfall in Texas. This was a devastating experience for all those in the Corpus Christi area who suffered great loss and would forever change their lives. But it then turned into a Tropical Storm and made landfall 2 more times over the next week to flood the greater Houston area and the Golden Triangle area of Port Arthur, Beaumont and Orange.

But what I see three weeks later is more deadly –  the fault finding, the name calling, the blaming, the accusations, the greed, the fraud. All these things come from the kingdom of darkness and we must not have a place in this division.

Matthew 5:9 in the Amplified version reads, “Blessed [spiritually calm with life-joy in God’s favor] are the makers and maintainers of peace, for they will [express His character and] be called the sons of God.”

Choose life and peace with every action today and you will be blessed. There will always be those who complain, find fault, play the victim. But we can choose life, the abundant life that Jesus has so richly provided for us and have peace and joy in the midst of every storm of life. Relationship storms are the worst, but Jesus can fix every hurt.

    Amen to that!
