Seeking The Kingdom…how high is that on the priority list? I am just sitting here thinking about how much time, energy, labor, sweat, tears and finances we put towards things that have absolutely NOTHING to do with The Kingdom of YHVH at all. It is so easy to get caught up isn’t it?
All of the projects that we THINK we need to get done…we focus entirely on those things and forget the most IMPORTANT project that is right before us. We like to do things, we like to create, we like to build and we like to stay busy. Why can’t we stay busy doing what we are supposed to do?
We use distractions to escape reality, we immerse ourselves in things to forget, we numb our minds and our senses to what is going on around us.
None of us likes to see or think about how much of the world is still in us, but it is there all the same. I am seeing a dangerous trend in people to just look the other way, think good thoughts and pretend everything away. That won’t stop anything…
11 “But they refused to listen, and they shrugged their shoulders, and stopped their ears from hearing. 12 “And they made their hearts like flint against hearing the Torah, and the words, which יהוה of hosts had sent by His Spirit through the former prophets. Therefore great wrath came from יהוה of hosts. 13 “And it came to be: as He called and they did not hear, so let them call, but I shall not hear,” said יהוה of hosts. 14 “And I scattered them with a storm wind among all the gentiles which they had not known. And the land was laid waste behind them, no one passing through or returning, for they made the pleasant land a waste.”
Always, seek the truth…rethink, relearn, return.
