Yesterday Is Gone

December 4
Daily Reading – Daniel 9-10 / 1 John 4  

GOD SAID:

Daniel 9:19 O Lord, hear; O Lord, forgive; O Lord, hearken and do; defer not, for thine own sake, O my God: for thy city and thy people are called by thy name..

GETTING INTO GOD’S WORD:

    Daniel cried out to the Lord for the children of Israel in a time when they were in bondage and it seemed there was no hope and no way out. He had read the prophesies of Jeremiah, and believed the word of the Lord. For this he is referred to in Daniel 10 as a “man greatly beloved.” As we know today, there was hope. God was their hope, and He delivered them.

    As believers in this same God, shouldn’t we be praying this same prayer today for our nation, which is now in the grips of sinful lifestyles and disobedience to God’s Word?

    “O Lord, hear”… However, God does not hear if we are not coming to Him in prayer. We need to be on our knees before God for our nation.

    “O Lord, forgive”… In our prayers, we must repent for not always taking Him seriously, and following God’s Word as our infallible guide.

    “O Lord, hearken and do;”… As God leads, we must follow.

      It’s far past time to simply pray. It’s time to beg and plead for God’s mercy on a sinful people. For His grace toward those who have disobeyed. Thankfully, He has always loved us, and always will. However, we dare not confuse His love with a tolerance for sin. People, its time to PRAY!

GETTING GOD’S WORD INTO ME:

       There is precious little time left. “For thy people are called by thy name.” Are we not called by His name? Christians. Yesterday is gone, we cant change that. However, we’re responsible for what we do with today.

Christians, if we don’t do what’s right,
who will?
