- Love is………attracting the mercy and promises of God……….Nehemiah 1:5-6.
5 And said, I beseech thee, O LORD God of heaven, the great and terrible God, that keepeth covenant and mercy for them that love him and observe his commandments: 6 Let thine ear now be attentive, and thine eyes open, that thou mayest hear the prayer of thy servant, which I pray before thee now, day and night, for the children of Israel thy servants, and confess the sins of the children of Israel, which we have sinned against thee: both I and my father’s house have sinned.
Thought for the week: Has God been quiet in your life lately? This passage teaches us that God’s mercy, promises and His answers to our prayers are linked to our love, obedience and the confession of our sins to Him. If God has been quiet in your life, try loving Him by obeying and confessing your transgressions to Him. You might be surprised how fast you hear from Him.
