Re:Verse reading–Genesis 10 (day five)
Often times we get caught up and concerned about “where” and “how” God is working in our lives. We get discouraged because we don’t feel it or see it. It’s as if we are writing our own theological narrative and have to have all the journalistic questions (Who?, What?, When?, Where?, and Why?) answered before we continue forward in our faith.
Genesis Chapter 10 does answer one of the questions- When? Each person and generation listed in this passage is proof that the Living God is constantly present and aware of the individual lives of His created beings. The answer to “When?” is measured individually and daily.
Jon Bloom wites, “Today is a day that the Lord has specially made (Psalm 118:24). He has planned it for you. It has a purpose. No matter what it holds, give thanks for it (1 Thessalonians 5:18). For God does not waste a day, and he will not waste you. And if you love and trust him, you will one day discover that today… will do you remarkable good (Romans 8:28)”.
