    Psalm 5:3-8 was my ‘God shot’ for today’s reading. After the genealogy accounts in Genesis chapters 5, 10, and 11, I am encouraged to know that our sovereign God keeps His promise. Thus far, our Lord has commanded humanity to be fruitful and multiply twice (Gen. 1:28, Gen 9:1). Each time the decision to seize autonomy from God and do things in their strength.

    In Genesis 11:4, we watch the human desire to promote worldly unity by making a name for themselves and staying together. God judges their disobedience by confusing the languages and halting apostasy(Gen 11:7). Abram, a righteous man before God, called to fulfill fruitful multiplication by trusting in the divine Holy Creator.

    How do we stay on God’s path? By worshiping and praying for our Lord to lead. He can make His will plain to us so that we are not easily confused or swayed by every wind of doctrine.
