My heart hurts when I see how God is treated in our world today. I hurt even more when I catch myself with words slipping out of my mouth that are of our culture instead of from God. I repent Father and ask Your forgiveness. I know better, and I am heartily sorry. We have such a wonderful loving God, and to offend Him hurts me.
Moses spoke about God with the reverence He deserves:
Deuteronomy 32:4-7 (MSG)
For it’s God’s Name I’m preaching—
respond to the greatness of our God!
The Rock: His works are perfect,
and the way he works is fair and just;
A God you can depend upon, no exceptions,
a straight-arrow God.
His messed-up, mixed-up children, his non-children,
throw mud at him but none of it sticks.
Don’t you realize it is God you are treating like this?
This is crazy; don’t you have any sense of reverence?
Isn’t this your Father who created you,
who made you and gave you a place on Earth?
We in this day have sat by silent too long. Why else is sin rampant? Babies are murdered in great numbers, sexual sins are accepted as normal, our religious liberties guaranteed by our founding documents are under serious attack, our president has peopled high positions in our government with those who do not have our nations best interest at heart. We are like those who sat by and allowed Hitler to exterminate many of Germany’s citizens~ it didn’t affect these others, so they looked away~ until it did affect them.
We have an election coming up here in the United States of America that is crucial to our nation and will affect every one of us financially and with our rights and freedoms. Our nation has dropped incredibly into huge debt in the last 8 years. Unemployment is high. Our defenses have been deliberately depleted at a time when major countries of the world are building up theirs. We sit in a risky situation and I plead with all to be praying for our country. Pray that the people of our nation will awaken to the dangers that exist and exercise their right to vote and pray about who to vote for. Not voting is voting. We need someone who is conservative and will not follow along the liberal programs of the past administration. We need vital changes to keep our country safe and to build our nation up again.
It’s true God is in control, but He has given us the responsibility to be obedient to Him and administer His plans. Jesus said:
Matthew 28:18-20 (NIV)
Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth
has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations,
baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.
And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Jesus gave the authority to His Church (the Body of Christ), and that is us. Obedience is the key, my friends. We humbly bow before our King of Kings thanking Him for His favor over our nation and asking for it to continue.
