2014 is a new and exciting year. For us in this New Year, we need to keep on doing what God is calling us to do. Keep the main thing the main thing!
Joel 3:14 – “Multitudes, multitudes are in the valley of decision! For the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision.”
Micah 6:8 - “He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy – and to walk humbly with your God.“
In Joel, Chapter 1, at a time of devastation there came a call for repentance.
At the worst of time Joel was told to:
- Blow the trumpet
- Sound the alarm
- For the Lord is coming
- It is close at hand
Charles Dickens’ opening line from A Tale of Two Cities is, ‘It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.’ May our hearts ever be drawn to the lost, may we walk humbly before God, even in the worst of our situation may it be the best of time.
