“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land” (2 Chronicles 7:14).
The only avenue to save this nation is seeking God in prayer. We don’t have the resources or the zeal, or the drive to bring this nation back to God. Only he alone can help us. What we are facing today is in part a result of our rejecting the Lord’s mighty hand in our lives. So many have sold out or settled for less than what the Lord has laid before us in his riches and blessings, because it requires a commitment, it is conditional. The big “IF.”
Give me one reason why the Lord would bless a nation that has turned their back or taken a knee, or pushed away the traditions that have kept us safe for centuries? If you disrespect this nation, and the people who have fought so hard to pave the way for your right to do so, then, God being a gentleman will lift his hand, and allow you to fight for yourselves against the powers of darkness.
I am thankful that not all have forgotten where the Lord has brought them out of. For without his hand and mercy, I would be lost. As a nation we can rise above the clamor, to stand in this evil day.
Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,
For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak. (Ephesians 6:13-20)
I am thankful that the Lord does promise to take of us, if we will allow it. Click on the link for this week’s Lattereign for more encouragement. the-lord-promises-to-take-care-of-us-2
