It’s quite evident that there are a lot of people in this world today that are not and have not taste the Good of God. Instead they have made the decision to turn their backs on Him and take control of the reigns and make decisions according to their own will. Politicians tend to do this once they get into office. Two years ago here in Texas we witnessed Wendy Davis taking a stand for late term abortions but yet she called herself a Christian. Thankfully she met her political doom in the Texas Governor’s race.
Last week after the horrendous shooting that took 9 Christian lives from an African American Church in South Carolina, like with all things politicians have jumped at the chance to advance their political agenda at the expense of those 9 lives based solely from a picture of the shooter with a Confederate Flag. Since then there has been political witch hunt to ban the Confederate flag across our Nation. Regardless the flag will always be a part of American History.. As with most things for some its past may represent something bad and for others it represents their heritage but to advance a political agenda in exchange for 9 Christian lives is irresponsible.
I believe the damage to our Nation is way too far gone to ever come back. We are living in a modern day Sodom & Gomorrah and our judgment day is fast approaching. I refuse to spend my time and energy focusing on the political maneuvers of our failed two party system that has lost its way because of greed and crookedness. If Washington was to be transparent and open the books up, I think we would find that 99.9 % of the politicians should be sent to prison. I will spend my time staying focused and taking refuge in the Lord…
“Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.” (Psalm 34:8)
Taste and see that God is good. This command contains an invitation to experience God’s Living Presence and it contains a promise as well. The more you experience God, the more you will become convinced of His goodness. Understanding and knowing this is essential to your walk of faith. When adversity strikes, your instinct is to doubt God’s goodness but His ways are mysterious even to those who know Him intimately. As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are God’s ways and thoughts higher than your ways and thoughts. Do not try to fathom His ways but instead spend your time & energy enjoying experiencing His goodness.
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.” (Isaiah 55:8-9)
MY CHALLENGE PRAYER for YOU.. Taste the goodness of God!!!
