And what agreement does a
have with idols? For you are the
temple of the living God, as
God has said, "I will dwell in them and walk among them; and I will be their God, and they shall be My
people." Therefore come out from among them and be separated, says the
Lord, and do not touch the unclean thing.
And I will receive you and I will be a Father to you, and you shall be My sons
and daughters, says the Lord
2 Corinthians 6: 16 - 18
It’s clean up time.
Why does God feel so far away? Why do we pray and receive no answers? Why are our offerings and sacrifices unaccepted? We have labored and watched our harvest go to someone else. Does God even know? Does he still see? Yes he knows and yes he sees all. His hands are not too short that he can’t save us neither is his ears deaf that he can’t hear us, but our sins and our unrighteousness have separated us from God.
Even my little kids know that after their playtime and after they have turned the house upside down, they have to clean up and put everything back in order. We have worked in unrighteousness for far too long and it has hampered the blessings of God in our lives and our nation.
As we start off a new week, God demands that we clean up our acts and return to him in righteousness. He demands that his children standout as lights in this present darkness. God desires to be a father to us and lavish his enduring love on us. It’s time to clean up our acts and return home to the Father.
This week, stand out from the crowd and be separated unto God in righteousness.
