ECWA FOOD FOR THE DAY - Friday 14th May, 2021

TOPIC: CAREFREE ATTITUDE MUST GIVE WAY TO THE NEW SOCIETY TEXT: ISAIAH 32 : 9 - 20 When men live in prolonged peace and abundance, they tend to take everything for granted, become complacent and throw caution to the wind. That was the case with the people of Judah and Jerusalem who had the grace to live in careless luxury and promptly forgot the Lord's injunction to live righteously. They assumed that nothing could disrupt their life of affluence because they had stocked up a greater deal even for the generations yet unborn. But Prophet Isaiah warned the people about the consequences of this carefree attitude to life, "Upon the land of my people shall come up thorns and briers, upon all the houses of joy in the joyous city...." The current global situation, which does not exempt believers, may not be unconnected with this same complacency among Christians. However, God's love for His people has made Him promise a new society after restoration, for which they must be prepared. This new society shall become the quiet dwelling place for God's own people.

QUESTION

Are you living a carefree life in contravention of God's word and warning against sin? PRAYER

Grant me the grace not to live a life of complacency towards Your word but to be quick in responding to Your instructions, in Jesus name, Amen.
