"The LORD is near to all who call on Him, to all who call on Him in truth." Psalm 45:18
How did you finish the above phrase? If i were a bettor, i'd say most did with "...there's fire". But as i experienced in the beginning of the school year, that's not always the case.
Sometimes where there's smoke, there is "an opportunity". In the library, smoke bombs were released to test the smoke alarm... an opportunity to insure safety mechanisms were functioning properly in case of a fire.
Father, smoke bombs are dropping left and right in our world. Give us the patience and wisdom to remember it might have more to do with an opportunity and need to turn and talk to You than an actual fire. I want to turn the smoke bombs into active prayer bombs as we are reminded to look first to You for directions and for protection.
we are loved and chosen by God,
