Surely you've noticed that although you fret at times about the world's problems,
when you get one of your own, it takes over.
We get upset because the annual
Day of Prayer was cancelled, but when a problem crops up in our computer, or the car won't start, the world can wait;
you need help, and you need it NOW.
Our health is one that takes a back seat,
as long as you're ok. But when illness or injury come into the picture, health becomes Number One. It sounds silly, but
even a paper cut on your finger will get and keep your attention until you can get some kind of relief.
And if you're like me, you forget to pray about it...you go get the liquid sealer that closes that cut
in a moment's time, so it doesn't break open every time you move your hand. Let's call it another miracle that
God has let our trailblazers come up with. That's fine, so long as they don't get to the point that people did when
they got so smart that they decided to "build a tower to heaven." The whole story is in the book of Genesis, verses
1-32. And there's a lesson in it for us. We haven't made a new heart yet, but we've made a good imitation that
keeps folks alive a while longer.
And when you get to talking about hearts, there
is one who can make you a new heart. By healing, yes, but let's get to the most important one...the new heart that will
keep you out of hell, and will set you on the road to Heaven eternal.
heart makes you a new person, even while here on earth. Where you may have had habits that are shortening your earthly life,
it can help you get rid of those roadblocks. I've seen it happen, where men changed in a moment's time at the alter,
to become family-loving, God-fearing people that you could trust with your very life. Think about it. Talk with Him "before
you dot another eye."
