TROUBLED WORLD

This blog is read sometimes by people in other countries, so I hear, but the majority are here in the United States and here in the United States we are in trouble. The very foundations this nation was founded upon are being challenged and our Constitution is being ignored by those who swore an oath on a Bible to uphold and defend it. Lying is pretty normal for some but it is wrong. This is not about a political party but is about the survival of these free United States of America. Many have buried their head in the sand and choose to ignore what is happening. If people become lethargic and too busy to care that is when destruction will occur. This is a spiritual battle for control of a free nation that always used to put the Ten Commandments and the Bible first. Not so any more. Sin is being normalized by laws being enacted. Many are being made to believe lies about the founding of this great land. Desensitization to sin is occurring in a huge way.  Many churches even are afraid to speak up and speak out against the sin going on. We are in our 'Holy Huddle Social Clubs'.  We know God is in control and has the final say but that is no reason to become complacent and not speak up against injustice and evil. If we don't, one day we may wake up to find ourselves living under tyranny and no longer in the free land we love. Some say "Don't bother me with politics". Praying is the best thing to do but also speaking up in love.

The Bible says in Psalm 46:1 that "God is our refuge and strength a very present help in times of trouble."  Proverbs 6:16-19 sort of sums of the evil going on in a nutshell. It says " these are the six things the Lord hates, yes seven are an abomination to Him. A proud look, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood. A heart that devises wicked plans, feet that are swift in running to evil, a false witness who speaks lies, and one who sows discord among brethren." We are not to hate evil men but to pray for them. Pray hard and never give up. In Luke 18:1 it says "men ought to pray and never give up."

Proverbs 24:17-18 says " do not gloat when your enemy falls, and do not let your heart be glad when he stumbles, lest the Lord see it and it displease Him, and He turn away His wrath from Him." Part  of the battle is to learn to sincerely pray for those who hurt us. It is very difficult to do when we see so much evil going on to hurt America but we have to ask God to change our heart and continue to pray. Matthew 5:44 says "but I tell you love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you."

I will leave you with this verse and say it out loud and take it to heart. 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 will forgive their sin and heal their land."

PRAYER: Thank you Lord for the freedoms we have enjoyed in the USA. We have been a blessed nation. We need men and women to wake up and get on their knees in prayer. Lord send us leaders who know and love you. Open up the eyes of those deceived by the enemy to the schemes of the devil to take this great Christian nation down. Open the eyes of Christians to not be tricked by the enemy. Open the hearts of Christians to not be too busy to care and stay informed. Lord we lift up those in leadership who are doing evil and making laws protecting and condoning sin. We ask for you to convict their hearts of what they are doing and have them repent. Save our land. We need God back in America again. In Jesus name. Amen.
