Very saddened with last nights State of the Union address… will continue to pray (and even more) for our President and government, that somehow-someday real change will come to our nation. Until that day, I will keep appealing to the high court of heaven… that God would hear our many cries for help in this nation… and that he would raise up deliverers to rescue our people from the oppressions we now face. God certainly has a solution for every crisis… he has a strategy… if we can just hear from him and follow him, as we once did… everything can change, we can live to see a better tomorrow!
I cannot describe to you how burdened I am this morning… about the current “state” of this union. Last night, I actually felt REAL PAIN in my body and spirit over what I was and wasn’t hearing. I kept thinking, we are spending billions and billions of dollars to fund this government… and there is not one glimmer of hope coming from there right now. Dear God, all the corruption and all the empty promises… when will it end?
But I have to check such feelings and chose rather, to thank God for the men and women who serve this government. Their job is not easy, their task is almost impossible. Our nation’s leaders really need Gods help, more than most of them are willing to admit. I long for the day this entire nation realizes how much of a mess we have gotten ourselves into… and we return to God with all our hearts.
I believe this nation is living in the era Moses warned about in one of his prophetic messages to Israel. This message applies to any country God CLEARLY blesses… such as America. Please actually take the time to read the following verses:
10 When you have eaten your fill, be sure to praise the Lord your God for the good land he has given you. (this is a GOOD land: America the Beautiful)
11 “But that is the time to be careful! Beware that in your plenty you do not forget the Lord your God and disobey his commands, regulations, and decrees that I am giving you today. (Have we forgotten?)
12 For when you have become full and prosperous and have built fine homes to live in, 13 and when your flocks and herds have become very large and your silver and gold have multiplied along with everything else, be careful! (Woops)
14 Do not become proud (too late) at that time and forget the Lord your God, who rescued you from slavery in the land of Egypt. 15 Do not forget (too late) that he led you through the great and terrifying wilderness with its poisonous snakes and scorpions, where it was so hot and dry. He gave you water from the rock! 16 He fed you with manna in the wilderness, a food unknown to your ancestors. He did this to humble you and test you for your own good. (He’s given us so much)
17 He did all this so you would never say to yourself, ‘I have achieved this wealth with my own strength and energy.’ (are we saying this?) 18 Remember the Lord your God. He is the one who gives you power to be successful, in order to fulfill the covenant he confirmed to your ancestors with an oath.
19 “But I assure you of this: If you ever forget the Lord your God and follow other gods, worshiping and bowing down to them, you will certainly be destroyed. (certain destruction?)
Now, I’m not trying to write a gloom and doom blog today. Rather, I’m aimed at riling up your faith, energize your prayers, and initiating a lifetime of greater Christian boldness.
Certain destruction means that, no matter how much we work at avoiding the inevitable… we will not be able to RECOVER… UNTIL we REMEMBER WHERE WE CAME FROM.
We will not be able to RECOVER until our leaders and citizens humbly acknowledge our decades of arrogance… until we apologize for saying what Moses warned us to NEVER say… that, “We have achieved this wealth with our own strength and energy.”
I’m optimistic about our nations future, when I consider the cycles of great awakenings in our nations history. EVERY TIME it seemed like we were on the brink of annihilation… we turned to God, who saved the day!
Our threshold for pain is much higher than it has ever been before… who knows how much more suffering we will endure before we finally humble our own hearts… and we finally tell the atheists to please stop speaking for the rest of us… and we finally stop fearing the VERY FEW anti-God folks in our land… and we finally stand as a majority voice to welcome God back into this country… ALL THE WAY BACK INTO THIS COUNTRY… and into every part of it.
Down with political correctness! Let’s surge at Washington with our prayers! Let’s live like Jesus teaches us to live… in such a way that GOD has influence in America again.
Random blog again today, I know! It’s a little sloppy and difficult to read… it’s a bit extreme and maybe out of balance in a few places. Hopefully, it’ll get you thinking and praying about America’s better future. Have a most triumphant day everyone… I love you all!!
Dream Big, Live Bold, and Make the Difference!
