I revere and love my God- love my Country and fellowman. I look at other countries and I’m deeply grateful to have been birthed on American soil! The United States of America is still beautiful in a myriad of ways and I will never stop petitioning our Sovereign for Her sake.
I simply mourn the America of my youth; the America of our Birth!
We’re a divided Nation because we’re divided individuals. We invited any and all to come without first drawing a definitive line in the sand; and in fact, allow others to erase the lines and redefine them as suits their personal bent. The melting pot is refusing the smelting- the wolf is in the hen house and our defenders are of another hue. But make no mistake, the devil will have his due.
To nay-Sayers, the Biblical Principles that guided our Founding Fathers are outdated- they strive vigorously to repudiate our Constitutional laws becasue they refuse the mandate; namely, one Nation under Sovereign God- and all that declaration entails.
To others, Our Sovereign and His mandates are everything and without Him we realize we’ll become as nothing; not in principle, not in fact, and not in history…like the countless regimes before that rose to greatness, trusted in the strength of their own arm and justly met their demise.
We gotta dance with the One what brung us, folks.
I never thought I’d live to see what I’m seeing. I never thought the valiant, God-fearing men and women of our Country would allow what I’m witnessing. Yet, when did God tell us to put our faith in mere men? Reality is- there but for the grace of God. King Solomon, even after Visitations and in all his Blessed wisdom, wealth, fame and fortune, intermarried with foreigners; history echos his fall to the surreal, unbelievable depth of worshiping [other] god’s.
There’s nothing new under the sun. We’ve been exceptionally Blessed as a Country and a people. We Christian’s can shake our heads and accept we’re fallen dead, or we can rise up and raise the Banner! speaking life to dead bones; knowing to Whom we’ve committed ourselves, understanding it is His breath in our lungs and His will to see it done. Not by power not by might but by My Spirit, said the Lord.
This is Sovereign God we’re talking about! Covenant Relationship is not like the worthless, weightless paper exchanged in marriages today. He’s proven trustworthy and true. His Covenant was etched in stone and ultimately signed in the blood of our Savior, Jesus Christ. After such extremes, He’s not going to ignore or disavow His own people. Remember the Promise? if My people, known by My Name, will humble themselves and pray and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from Heaven, forgive their sins and heal their land.
Its just my opinion, but in light of all the shared love, wisdom and miraculous proofs witnessed, I ponder if the Lord wept over the wound of distrust more so than Lazarus’ death. After all, He knew He was about to raise the man back to life. Similarly, I believe The Dove cries; but I wonder if His grievance isn’t over our refusal to be exonerated as much as our sin! It’s like a judge giving a reprieve to a man sentenced to die and the man saying nah, I’ll take death.
“O Jerusalem! O Jerusalem! You kill the prophets and you stone the messengers who are sent to you. How often I wanted to gather in your children as a hen gathers in her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing to come to Me.” ~Jesus: Luke 13:34
The difference between panic and peace is prayer, a Church sign read. Prayer has always been and always will be the deciding factor. It won’t be a better President, an advantageous deal, a new law or another, better regime. It will be a quality decision made by each individual to come back to our Sovereign and make the definitive declaration- as for me and my house! Walking out that decision in shoe leather within ourselves will change our households, save our progeny and potentially transform our Nation before She devolves any further than She already has.
As the head goes, so goes the body.
If the enemy-dragon can cut off the head, he can kill the body. Do we even perceive the demonic handiwork in our Country? In marriage- no longer held in honor and esteem much less considered sacred; our children, indiscriminately murdered in the womb; in society; deviant behavior being lauded and even celebrated?
We don’t have to accept this lying down, America but we do have to bow and acknowledge Sovereignty. We do have to pray and obey. It’s not only our Country hanging in the balance here, it’s our very own lives. Our Sovereign is Deity- we are not.
It’s never too late to do the right thing. ~Holy Spirit Wisdom
There’s a reason it’s called personal accountability. We can all point to someone or something else as a dissenting reason- but we only have one reason for doing what is right. His name is Jesus and He is madly in love with us. He not only declared it, He proved it. He delights to know and prove personally.
He’s beautiful. More beautiful than any dreamer could have drempt. I hope and pray you click the link, read the brief message and pray the salvation prayer. It’s simple but honest and it’s the only solution to our common malady. It’s the most profound proposal you’ll ever accept. If so, welcome to Relationship!
God bless the life-journey,
Salvation Prayer – Back to Basics
The Salvation Prayer is merely a road to rebirth in Jesus Christ. To be born again you must confess Jesus as Lord and believe that He is. When you ask Him into your heart, you are allowing Him to be the Lord of your life. Unfortunately, the Church today has complicated the Salvation message with various layers of extra “stuff.” So…let’s get back to the basics!
National Day of Prayer! May 5th
Please watch and prepare to add your voice!
