This is the time to search our ways and turn to the Lord!
"Be strong and courageous,
do not fear or be dismayed because of the king of Assyria,
not because of all the multitude that is with him;
for the one with us is greater than the one with him,
With him is only an arm of flesh,
but with us is the Lord our God to help us and to fight our battles." 2 Chronicles 32: 7 & 8
"God left him alone only to test him, that He might know all that was in his heart."2 Chr. 32:31b
From the beginning, God has always allowed His people to be tested. These tests come in various forms from wars, famines, pestilence, or plagues. But we have a hope of relief of God's mercy as we Search and try our ways and turn again to the Lord (Jesus). It is of the Lord's mercies that we're not consumed, because His compassion fails not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. The Lord is my portion saith my soul; therefore will I hope in Him. The Lord is good unto them that wait for Him, to the soul that seeketh Him." Lamentations 3:40, 22-25
