WINDY Whirlwind Worship

To say it is windy outside is putting it VERY mildly! We have gusts going up to 40 mph! CRAZY! And annoying!

But what is really annoying? When the Lord brings a word to you during your morning devo.

I like to now and than, get my daily devo from James McDonalds Walk in the Word. I am on his email lists and when I am not in a series, I like to use his.

Today James brought us to Hosea 8:7 and I have never thought of this whole passage quite like he had shared. And did it EVER hit me…

James had brought up Jacob and his lying to his brother Esau and his father Isaac. Jacob was a deceiver for sure. Later when Jacob wanted to marry Rachel but was deceived by his father in law, tricked just like Jacob had done in his younger years and got Leah instead…well…the whirlwind came onto Jacob.

How the Lord allows our strongholds, sin to somehow be used in our lives to show us what we are doing and whom we are hurting. This whole passage draws me to seeing how I can make idols out of human hands instead of worshipping and adoring my Jesus. This passage draws on how I can use hurtful words to someone, and those same words come back onto me by someone else and I see what I had done. That sin comes back around and bites like a strong wind.

This picture is an image I got online. I think it is a stamp, but I thought it was a perfect picture. My umbrella turning inside out and the wind biting me! This just fit and I love how it turned out!

May you see this passage as a place to repent (I put a tab on the top to remind me) and whenever the wind blows, may it bring you to a place to look to Jesus, repent, and ask the Lord to remind you of the strongholds in your life.

 

Have a great day!

Love Deeper, talk sweeter!
