We heard today that all was not well in Abraham’s household. It was a messy family situation not unlike some family situations today.
When God is allowed to touch our lives - no matter how messy or complicated - they are changed for the better. The struggle of a messy family situation can be a place of purification for us ... a place where we acknowledge our weaknesses and find God’s mercy.
Evil seeks to keep us off balance and in turmoil. Are you or is someone in your family feeling that way? God is prepared to restore that balance. Call out to Him and trust Him.
I pray for love, forgiveness and peace in your family today. God bless you.
