Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you. Ephesians 4:31-32
Since the election I have had a couple folks asked to be removed from my devotion list because I in fact spoke the truth in love but apparently they did to want to hear it. Politics is an area many people dare not trod. Especially this Presidential election season which was fought with criticism, rumors, hatred, screaming,riots, and continued division as has gone on for 8 years now. Our new President elect won fair and square yet many on the left of the political spectrum aren't satisfied. Everyone on both sides of the aisle needs to be praying for him not causing senseless riots.Now is the time to truly unite and get America back on the right track which is going back to our Christian roots but many false teachers have crept in just as scripture warned us and many have been deceived. Some of these even within the church and perhaps your own families. America was not going to survive if it kept spending money it did not have. The military was depleted. It is the church, not the government, that is supposed to care for those in need. And to purposely allow those from countries whose Holy book says to "kill the Infidel" into settlements in our country is not a wise move.Now is the time to stop the rumors and hatred and pray for those in this country who seek to cause disruption and turmoil. Another thing is to keep the nightly news off as they are only one sided and you will not gain much peace from watching. Truly love those who disagree with you. Pray for the organizations and people who are stirring up dissent. Remember above all love one another. Period.PRAYER: Lord Jesus you are in charge of this country and the whole world. I love you Lord. I love those who choose to hate me, unfriend me, and disagree with me. Help all people be able to get into the word of God instead of the morning newspaper nad be transformed by reading it. In Jesus' name. Amen.
