When I look at our country today my heart breaks. We have been the most blessed country in the world but yet we have forgotten what it took to get us here. We have for gotten about the lives that were shed and sacrificed. Most importantly we have forgotten the principals in which our country was founded upon. We have become lazy as a nation. We no longer hold people accountable for their actions. As a society we punish the people for their success but we reward those that do nothing. We have turned our back on God and call His precepts irrelevant. People twist & contort His teachings so it can benefit their position. We no longer are just nation. As a nation we deserve to have the wrath of God to come down on us with the vengeance like was felt in Sodom & Gomorrah. I believe we the people, the followers of Christ need to fall down on our knees this morning and cry out and ask God to give us the courage, wisdom, & strength to take a stand in His name and if it means being persecuted in His name then so be it. We do it in His name, in His honor and to bring Him glory. We owe it to Him…
“But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.” (1 Peter 2:9)
God loves you with an everlasting Love. Before time began, He knew you. For years you swam around in the sea of meaninglessness, searching for love and hoping for hope. All that time He was pursuing you, aching to embrace you in His compassionate arms. When time was right, He revealed Himself to you. He lifted you out of that sea of despair and sat you down on a firm foundation. Sometimes you feel naked-exposed to the revealing Light of His Presence but He wraps His robe of righteousness around you. He sings you a Love song, whose beginning and end are veiled in eternity. He infuses meaning into your mind and harmony into your heart. Feel free to join Him in singing His song. Together you will draw others out of darkness into His marvelous Light.
“I delight greatly in the Lord; my soul rejoices in my God. For he has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of his righteousness, as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.” (Isaiah 61:10)
MY CHALLENGE PRAYER for YOU.. Seek first His kingdom and then to bring Him the honor & glory Him in all things..
I hope you all have a FANTASTIC day… Blessings & much love….D
