Reflections… a Scripture verse and inspiration for daily living [7/23]

Passage: Amos 9:1-15
Verse: Amos 9:13a (NIV 2011)
“The days are coming,” declares the Lord, “when the reaper will be overtaken by the plowman and the planter by the one treading grapes.”

The Lord, in all things, is all powerful, all knowing, and forever and always present. There is no hiding from the Lord.  Wherever we go, whatever we do, He IS there and He KNOWS.  For those who believe in and follow the Lord, His presence is a comfort and a blessing.  However, for those who willfully disobey or deny Him, His presence becomes a disturbing reminder of the judgment and wrath to come.  There is no escape from the Lord.  We will all come face-to-face with the Lord, our God.  May we be found worthy, through the redemptive work of Jesus Christ.  May we know that it is only through Christ… and not by anything we might be, say, or do… that we will be allowed to stand before Him and to be found blameless.  May we remember that in that day the Lord will restore, repair, and rebuild… for the remnant that bear His name [v. 11-12].  Being in Christ, may we yearn for the day when we will be able to rebuild the ruined cities… will plant vineyards and drink their wine; when we will make gardens and eat their fruit; when we will never again to be uprooted from the things that the Lord has given and intended for us [v.14-15].  (inspired by Reflecting God – Devotions for Holy Living, WordAction Publishing Company)
