Faithful Love started off with a bang. If you weren’t familiar with the book of Hosea, you may have been surprised by God’s call on Hosea to marry Gomer, a prostitute, and to have children with her. You may have also found it surprising or even disheartening to read that he would no longer show mercy to Israel – and perhaps like me, you found hope in our Friday’s SOAP verse to learn that edict would not last forever. Whatever your thoughts, I hope you’re ready to dive into week 2 tomorrow, and I really hope you will take a minute to share whether you were surprised, disheartened, encouraged, or left with questions – or your overall takeaway from week one. I’m dying to know!
PRAYER FOCUS: LET’S SPEND TIME PRAYING FOR OUR COUNTRY EVERY DAY THIS WEEK.
Week 2 Challenge: Are there any areas of your life that you have not surrendered in obedience to God? Take some time in prayer, asking God to show you the reason you’re clinging to old ways and to help you relinquish control.
Memory/Focus Verse: Psalm 47:8
