Hosea 10

Alan and I were doing our Bible Study this morning and we decided to read the 10th chapter of Hosea to go along with what we were studying. There were several things that stood out in my mind. Israel was in a mess because they had turned from God, are we not in a mess today because we have turned away from God.

Hosea 10:2 Their heart is divided...
Are we not a divided nation, I can see a major change in our country and in the church just in my adult years.

Hosea 10:3 ...because we feared not the LORD...
My prayer for today was Lord let me fear you,(LOVE YOU)

Hosea 10:12 ...break up your fallow ground..
They had hard hearts, and I am afraid we are all guilty of a hard hearts. I want to have a tender, teachable heart and I ask the Lord for this regularly. I don't ever want to be guilty of not being able to hear the LORD.

Hosea 10:13 ... because thou didst trust in thy way...

We are living in times no different than the things we read about in the Bible. People are evil, wicked, and give no thought or concern to God or the things of God. But if it was not for the grace of God who knows where I would be today.

In, With, Through Christ

Truly there is nothing new under the sun! Men have the same inclinations throughout the ages.

Thank God we know how this story ends: we win because He's won/One!

Were it not for God's love and His incredible plan of salvation life would be so, so meaningless.

Be blessed,
