Four Seasons: A Season of Rededication
I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live.
The second law of thermodynamics says that disorder increases over time unless it is interrupted. Not only is that true physically, it is also true spiritually. Left to ourselves, our carnal nature wars against the Spirit to pull us in the direction of spiritual disorder (Galatians 5:17).
Moses called each generation of Israelites to affirm their allegiance to God. The Exodus generation dedicated themselves to God at Mount Sinai (Exodus 24) and the second generation was called to do the same (the book of Deuteronomy). Moses then instructed Joshua to lead Israel to rededicate themselves to the Covenant before they settled the land (Joshua 8:30-35). And after their expansion into the land, they rededicated themselves again (Joshua 24).
Why not let February — even today — be when you rededicate yourself to God: to love and obey Him in everything in the coming year.
The year is made up of minutes. Let these be watched as having been dedicated to God. It is in the sanctification of the small that hallowing of the large is secure.
