II Chronicles 1-3:17

O, to be like Solomon and have the sense to ask God for His Wisdom in each and every situation. Then once I was given the Wisdom because I’ve asked for it to use that Wisdom wisely. I know that it is God’s desire for everyone to seek Him and ask for wisdom because I’m told to ask,

5 If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him. 6 But when he asks, he must believe and not doubt, because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.
(James 1:5-6)

Romans 6:1-23

16 Don't you realize that whatever you choose to obey becomes your master? You can choose sin, which leads to death, or you can choose to obey God and receive his approval.

Taking responsibility for the choices we make is a hard thing to do. But Paul says we will become slaves to our choices. In the USA it seems that there are a lot of people blaming everyone else for the choices they have made instead of them blaming the person who looks back at them while they stand in front of the mirror. What I must do is make sure I’m not playing the same “Blame Game” I’m accusing many people of doing.

Psalm 16:1-11

David certainly knew who is God was. He knew his attributes His character; His ways in order to write a Psalm that speaks to and encompass all the fears, joys, hopes and longings we humans have.


Proverbs 19:20-21

21You can make many plans, but the LORD's purpose will prevail.

I’ve heard it said that God will never go against anyone’s will but he sure knows how to make you willing, just ask Jonah.

Grace and peace,
Ramona

2 Chronicles

I believe I am going to gain some important insights and a new hope for a time such as this. We all have all just returned from a foreign country. so to speak. The end of Covid is here and now people are adjusting to a new life. Just like Chronicles was written to those refugees who returned from Babylon, we are experiencing the same questions about our future. The same question God puts before me, “Ask for whatever you want me to give you”. My answer is for the wisdom and knowledge to move into the future. Lead my family, friends, and community towards healing and see the past in a new light. I am excited to see what is going to happen!

Psalm 16:3

I truly believe in Mike’s attitude that it is important we listen and pray for our pastors at this time too. Their leadership right now is imperative to how we proceed in the following months.

In our church they have embraced the wonderful scripture from 2 Chronicles 7:14, “ If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, than will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”

Let us hope it is not in the interest of planning to build a tower of Babel or as Ramona suggests, doing a Jonah.
