Joshua 19:1-20:9

God knows man well enough that he knows we look for revenge when someone we love dearly is killed. We want someone to pay for a death, an accident even when the “victim” of the “crime,” accident participated in the very incident that led to his/her death. We are looking for “payback.” Since those who call out for the death of the “man slayer, themselves deserve death—For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. (Romans 6:23 KJVR)—we are truly sinners crying out for the blood of those who have sinned.

The only one who can pay the price for all of us, the only refuge mankind has, the only place where I can go to satiate my need for revenge, and to keep me from becoming the object of others revenge is Jesus Christ.

Grace and peace,

Heaven is where all of the bad hurts of this world will melt away, we will be at peace and with the HOLY Trinity FOREVER. 46Saying unto them, It is written, My house is the house of prayer: but ye have made it a den of thieves.

I was wondering if any of you One Year Bible Bloggers are on Face Book .I would love to have some of you as my FB friends. I can use all the encouragement to keep on with my Bible reading I can get and I suspect others could as well. If any of you would like to be my "friend" my name is Melanie Harding.
I would like Raeanne to know I used your above as my profile statement for the day, thanks!

The old testament readings reminds me that God provides refuge to all those who have sinned. Earthly refuge is through the judgement of the land but heavenly refuge is through God's mercies.

The New Testament readings reminds me of how we have short memories. One day we praise God, the next day we forget God. Christ ransomed us from our sins.

We seem to forget that the house of God (the church) is a house of prayer and worship. We at times turn it to a commercial house.


Today I was struck by how blind we can be to very real spiritual truth. Jesus said that even the rocks would cry out who He was but Jerusalem did not recognize Him. It made me wonder what I miss because I choose not to see. The other point I saw today was similar. The tribe of Dan was assigned a portion of land but found it too hard to conqueror so they went else where. This left a stronghold for the enemy in the middle of Israel and Dan settling for less than God intended for them all because they decided that God's way was too difficult. I want to be in the center of God's will for me even if it is difficult. I want spiritual eyes to see the truth and not miss out on God's best. I want Jesus to rejoice over me instead of weep when He sees how I missed His best.
