2 Kings 10.32
It was about this time that God began to shrink Israel.
what an unfortunate consequence of not putting you first, what a sad, sad plight of not having your ways above all - from our mind and hearts to our finances and relationships. this is what shrinks our life, this is what makes us ineffective here on earth, this is what deprives us of our purpose, robs us of our significance. may we use up all we have, all we are, all you've poured out into us, to make sure that you are put first, you are prioritized, you call the shots, your ways touch everyone around us, your truth is the only thing at play in our minds and hearts. thank you, lord.
