PRAYER: Please pray for our churches and pastors. That they would continue to innovate and lead more people to Jesus during this time.
DEVOTION: “When will you stop running? When will you stop panting after other gods? But you say, ‘Save your breath. I’m in love with these foreign gods, and I can’t stop loving them now!’” – Jeremiah 2:25
Interesting verse here. This phrase “panting after other gods”. Isn’t that where we were before this pandemic hit? Running. Fast. To get to the next event, party, work day, service.
Now. We are forced to stay home. To stop. Slow down for a minute and given the opportunity to let God in, maybe, more than He’s ever been let in before. And it’s changing some of your lives. Some of my life. Priorities shift. Time is spent differently. The “rat race” is not so much a race as a slow trot.
I’m not making light of the situation. There are dire events happening right outside our doors. But….things are changing behind the door of our hearts. Maybe God is working in ways that you never thought he would. Maybe…
Be open to the change. Be open to the voice of your Father calling you and leading you closer to the you that you’re supposed to be.
