(Wow my journey to get started writing and to write 30 devotions for friends has expanded and lo and behold I stand on the verge of completing number 100 tomorrow. Thanks to all my guineau pig friends who are willing to get these daily and thanks for your comments as well. I appreciate it. I hope you have been blessed.)
DO YOUR PART
Today is a very important day for freedom. We citizens of the United States get to go vote. Many decide their vote does not count and choose to just stay home but this is a privilege.How are we to have any hope to change things if we do not exercise this right and privilege? Currently we enjoy a democratic form of government. If we do not speak up and go vote we may not always be blessed with this freedom. Many nations are under dictatorships and do not get to choose. Right now thankfully that freedom still exists. Go exercise your right to vote and pray that God would direct you to men and women of honesty,integrity and good moral character and pray that men and women who are cheats and deceivers will be uncovered.
Right now we have a moral crisis in our country more than ever. What is good is being called bad and what is bad is being called good. We have gotten away from the way the Founding Fathers intended it to be. Proverbs 28:2 says , "When there is moral rot within a nation,its government topples easily, but with honest, sensible leaders there is stability." When you cut God out of the equation your society is not going to stand for long. But we have started doing it through the years and this nation has broken down and suffered as a result. When schools can not even display the Ten Commandments or allow the Gideons to bring the New Testaments in to give students then we are taking away the ability to teach right ad wrong according to God's word. Evil forces would love to take this nation out and they are within us. It is our duty as Christians and as citizens to stand up and save this land we love.
Proverbs 17:15 says "The Lord despises those who say that bad is good and good is bad." This past year we have had government leaders who have ignored 'we the people' and shoved through legislation, that if not repealed, will hurt this country and its' people. We said we do not want it but they chose to look the other way. They even admitted they did not know what was in a couple of the bills as they were so large. Proverbs 18:13 has something to say about that. "What a shame-yes,how stupid!-to decide before knowing the facts!". Lies have been told yet many believe the lies. That is because Satan is the great deceiver. It is the enemy who wants this country and he is working through people to tear it down. Tea Party citizens have risen up and said "stop it' we love this country and we are not going to let you take our freedoms away from us.
Proverbs 19:9 says "a false witness shall be punished and a liar will be caught." God is ultimately in control and he allows some things to happen for a reason. Maybe it is to wake us up as we have been in a slumber enjoying the freedoms we have ,not realizing little by little they are being chipped away at. Even preachers in the pulpit sometimes do not speak up against tyranny. Men and women who believe God's word have a right and duty to speak up. Proverbs 21:18 says , "The wicked will finally lose, the righteous will finally win. " See so we know in the end who wins.Never in my lifetime have I seen the assualts on our country from within our own government. It shocks me and saddens me. Proverbs 22:8 says "The unjust tyrant will reap disaster, and his reign of terror will end. " Hallelujah. We are not to rejoice and pray for them to be hurt or anything. Proverbs 24:17-18 says "Do not rejoice when your enemy meets trouble. Let there be no gladness when he falls-for the Lord may be displeased with you and stop punishing him."
So it is your choice. Many are praying and fasting today if they are able. 2 Chronicles 7:14 says "If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land. " Lets do it. Take time today out of your busy schedule to lift up your hands to the Almighty asking him to save this land. Do not take your freedoms for granted. (http://www.praythevote.com/)
PRAYER: Lord give us wisdom today as we go vote. Open the eyes of the blind and deceived to see what is happening in this great land. We want our country back. This country was founded on a solid Constitution written by Christian men who loved this land and loved God. Lord God we pray our Constitution will be restored as you intended it. In Jesus Name, Amen!
