MORNING PSALM 51
10Create in me a clean heart, O God,
and put a new and right spirit within me.
11Do not cast me away from your presence,
and do not take your holy spirit from me.
12Restore to me the joy of your salvation,
and sustain in me a willing spirit.
Week of August 30th
When the Lord first spoke through Hosea, the Lord said to Hosea,
"Go take for yourself a wife of whoredom and have children of whoredom, for the land commits great whoredom by forsaking the Lord.
The older i get, the more I appreciate the Bible!
The Bible is full of strange things, weird things, because the Lord is trying to get out attention! I am serious!
At one point, God says: "I have given you cleanness of teeth in all your cities and still you have not turned to me, says the Lord your God."
And God tells Hosea to marry a prostitute!!! What is that all about???
I suggest that you check out a contemporary version of this scripture online, read it, and be prepared to be very surprised!
