Arguing FOR church restrictions for the sake of protecting the most vulnerable, or AGAINST restrictions for the sake of religious liberty, matters nothing if the people of God are intent on ignoring what He’s calling His people to do in “the time of trouble”…
“Turn to Me with all your heart, with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning. So rend your heart, and not your garments; return to the Lord your God… Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children and nursing babes; let the bridegroom go out from his chamber, and the bride from her dressing room. Let the priests, who minister to the Lord, weep between the porch and the altar.” (Joel 2:12-13; 16-17)
Through the pressures of episode after episode in 2020, the furtive ways of our hearts are being exposed and invited to be adjusted to the ways of the Lord’s heart.
Of course, in order to adjust our hearts to His heart, we must first see what’s in His heart…
“When You said ‘seek My face’, I said, ‘O Lord, Your Face I will seek’.” (Psalm 27:8)
