120 years-Genesis 11 part 2

When we look at the geneology of the family that led to Abraham, the one thing that underscores for me is the age decline.  God said no more than 120 years for men and by the time of Abraham he had accomplished the plan.  This was not a punishment for the people, but the execution of God’s word.  There is so much about why God does what he does we will never understand—but that is Ok! We are not intended to understand God’s ways, we are simply called to trust his plan.

Current days are the same.  So much of what is going on in our world we do not get.  Why God allows what he does—does not seem reasonable.  Truth is, much of our experience is a result of years of sin and horrible choices.  We are now reaping what the world has sewn.  We beg God to spare us the pain, but, we need to pray we can stand firm during the fire.  We need to focus on becoming like him and not trying to figure him out.  He tells us if we will humble ourselves and turn from our wicked ways and pray and seek his face, then he will allow us to find him, restore us and heal our Land.  Help me Lord to seek you!

God Bless You
