Our Responsibility

Posted on September 8, 2016 at 12:05 AM


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.

6-7

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.

SEARCHING FOR A CLOSER WALK WITH GOD


                                        AWESOME GOD


 DIGGING DEEPER

Sometimes the terrible awesomeness of God hits me and sends me reeling into deep meditation. It always carries its reward of a new closeness with my God. It happened this morning. In the beginning I was distracted with my mind wandering here and yon. Then I ‘woke up’ and commanded it to return. God is so good! Holy Spirit began to lead me in prayer.

Sorry, my Lord. I come to our meeting this morning with scattered thoughts; help me, Lord, to rein them in. That You even desire to meet with me is so amazing! Deep breath. Moses asked God, “what shall I say when they ask 'Who sent me’?” You responded, “Say the Great I AM sent me.” You, God, are not hemmed in by time. For You there is no ‘was, will be’, there is only I AM. Before You I bow down my heart, my 'who I am' I submit to You; help me become who You created me to be.


Exodus 3:13-14 (AMP)

13 And Moses said to God, Behold, when I come to the Israelites and say to them, The God of your fathers has sent me to you, and they say to me, What is His name? What shall I say to them? 14 And God said to Moses, I Am Who I Am and What I Am, and I Will Be What I Will Be; and He said, You shall say this to the Israelites: I Am has sent me to you!

  • Footnotes: Exodus 3:15 To know the name of God is to witness the manifestation of those attributes and apprehend that character which the name denotes.

Can you feel the depth of that name? 'I AM' signifies so much ~ timelessness, absolute love, supreme power, unimaginable expansion ~ an incomprehensible being, totally surrounding. There simply are not words to express the grandness of Who our God is. HIS LOVE FOR US  S SO APPARENT IN HIS WORD!


Psalm 91:14 (AMP)

Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness—trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never].

Isaiah 52:6 (AMP)

Therefore My people shall know what My name is and what it means; therefore they shall know in that day that I am He who speaks; behold, I Am!

Indeed my God! You are the great I AM! This measures so deep and so high and so wide. You revealed Your staggering magnificence to David, and it comes out here:


Psalm 139:1-10

O Lord, you have examined my heart

and know everything about me.

2 You know when I sit down or stand up.

You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.

Even when it’s my mind traveling on tangents.

3 You see me when I travel and when I rest at home.

You know everything I do.

4 You know what I am going to say

even before I say it, Lord.

5 You go before me and follow me.

You place your hand of blessing on my head.

6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,

too great for me to understand!

7 I can never escape from your Spirit!

I can never get away from your presence!

8 If I go up to heaven, you are there;

if I go down to the grave, you are there.

9 If I ride the wings of the morning,

if I dwell by the farthest oceans,

10 even there your hand will guide me,

and your strength will support me.

You are always with me. 

You will guide me.

You will always be my support. Your strength

upholds me, protects me, supports me.


Lord, You are so good! What a privilege to know You! Thank You that You continue to grow me closer to You. Thank You! I love being together with You, my Lord.
