Christian Devotional – May 25, 2012

VERSE:
2 Kings 25:2–So the city was under siege until the eleventh year of King Zedekiah.

TRUTH:
For over two years the city of Jerusalem was under attack. Babylon had come and would ultimately conquer Judah. Yet at no time during this two year standoff and famine does it ever say anything about anyone turning or repenting or crying out to God. Do we cry out to God in the midst of the consequences of our sin, or are we just going through it with no hope?

RESPONSE:
Lord, no matter my circumstances, help me to never be so proud that I am unwilling to repent and turn back to You. I pray I will return to You quickly and not wait like Judah did without any hint of turning to You.
