our thick skin

ever wonder why we seem not to get what God is asking of us? i mean, it seems so many miss the boat on what God is doing. churches, people, ministries and more - over time, in the evagelical church, "sucess" was measured in "money and membership" - how much you raised, and how many you brought in. but, with both on a decline, one needs to ask, are we doing what God is blessings?
And then what happened? Well, when Israel tried to be right with God on her own, pursuing her own self-interest, she didn't succeed. The chosen ones of God were those who let God pursue his interest in them, and as a result received his stamp of legitimacy. The "self-interest Israel" became thick-skinned toward God.

irrael did not, they started to move away from what God wanted to do with them, and into what they wanted to do themselves. in that, they became "thick skinned" in how they delt with God. they knew what they needed to do, but they just did not do it. the funny thing is that God never moved - God ws always there. when we look at what we are doing and we ask if it has meaning, all i can say is that we need to be doing what God is blessing and the results will be that we "recieve his stamp of legitimacy"
