“Come, let us build ourselves a city and a tower.” Genesis 11:4
One thing mankind can say about ourselves; we are persistent. The motto “if at first you don’t succeed, try, try again” pretty aptly describes our behavior. Sometimes it is positive and sometimes it just leads to more trouble. Anyone who has raised boys can attest to the troubled ending of faulty pursuits. After the flood, when the destruction of the world was fresh in the minds of all mankind, they decided to be persistent in disobeying God.
He told them to separate and move over all the earth. They decided to stay put and become great. The old “we want to be gods” attitude begun in the Garden was still persisting after God’s clear demonstration of His wrath toward sin. But not only is man persistent, so is God. He broke up their plan and fulfilled His own. God wants to break down our persistent pursuit of sin and replace it in us with His persistent pursuit of righteousness. We will find it is easier to work with Him than against Him.
Dear Father, Help me to persistently seek Your will for my life. Amen.
