Let My People Go

It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. Galatians 5:1

Why is it so many nations have dictators, tyrants and kings that are bent on control of the people? Human nature can easily get selfish, egocentric, and power hungry. For the man or woman following Christ they are led by the light and love but many are not followers of Christ and may unknowingly be doing Satan's work to dominate, deceive, lie, trick, kill, and manipulate people. When someone tries to control every aspect of a person's existence they are trying to domineer and take away our choices. 
God is not like that. God is love. God is peace. God wants us to go and be creative and earn money and thrive. He does not want us dependent upon others. God wants us to be kind to our fellow man. He wants us to see a need and meet it. He wants us to pray for our enemies. He wants us to be in prayer for our nation and its' leaders even ones that seem that prayer will never work on. 

When a nation follows God's laws all is well but when they get to thinking they know more than God look out. Do not be fearful of what is going on around us for God indeed is in control. But He wants us to wake up and protect the liberty we have been blessed with and to stay in prayer for our nation. Now go get in your prayer closet for our land and for its' healing and restoration. 

PRAYER: Oh Lord your beautiful. Your face is all I seek. I am ashamed when I have taken freedom for granted. Help me to do my part to help our great land remain free. In Jesus' name. Amen.
