Run to the cross 28

Muscles were aching tonight after first digging much clay and earth to redesign the mud hut. All is quiet, as I run along side the brook, water running clear.

I’m fascinated with nature, with God’s nature that He created, but there are people who want to exploit everything. They justify their cruelty to animals by their disbelief in God. I suggest it is an excuse to do harm rather than do good. When I look at nature, I can’t help but see the design and the creator in every aspect.

Musing on nature and the cross by Graham Hickey

AMOS 5:8
He who made the Pleiades and Orion,
    who turns midnight into dawn
    and darkens day into night,
who calls for the waters of the sea
    and pours them out over the face of the land—
    the Lord is his name.

The more we turn away from the creator of this world, the more sin becomes acceptable. Soon we invent our own reasons to be good. I know this because I have been there, denying God so that I could have an excuse to do something bad. But God has a funny habit of seeking people and waiting until the right time before they turn to him.

Why not pray for an unbeliever tonight and ask them tomorrow how they are. Prayer works.

Dear Lord I pray for the people I saw today who were using the denial of God to cause harm or do what they wanted to do. Open their heart and bring the saving grace of Jesus Christ into their lives. In Jesus name Amen.
