“I can’t see the forest for the trees.” How many times have you heard that? Perhaps you have said that yourself. What about here and now? Are you asking yourself where all this is going? Where is America going, and will we be okay? I have some advice for you – focus on the bigger picture.
Our verse of the day comes from an Old Testament book, Ezekiel, chapter 18:25-32. Check it out.
“Yet you say, ‘The way of the Lord is not just.’
Hear, O house of Israel: Is my way unjust? Is it not your ways that are unjust? If a righteous man turns from his righteousness and commits sin, he will die for it; because of the sin he has committed, he will die. But if a wicked man turns away from the wickedness he has committed and does what is just and right, he will save his life. Because he considers all the offenses he has committed and turns away from them, he will surely live; he will not die. Yet the house of Israel says, ‘The way of the Lord is not just. Are my ways unjust, O house of Israel? Is it not your ways that are unjust?”
Therefore, O house of Israel, I will judge you, each one according to his ways, declares the Sovereign Lord. Repent! Turn away from all your offenses; then sin will not be your downfall. Rid yourselves of all the offenses you have committed, and get a new heart and a new spirit. Why will you die, O house of Israel? For I take no pleasure in the death of anyone, declares the Sovereign Lord. Repent and live!”
