Living in a free country is a privilege that cost so many people their lives, yet too often we take our freedoms for granted. Just because we have always been able to go and do as we please, doesn’t mean that it will always be that way for us. In a nation that has not learned to trust in God, I am burdened for our country and our very way of life: however, I serve notice on the enemy, today, I will not bow to any other gods but the one true and living God, Jesus Christ. He is the only one worthy of my praise, because he willingly gave his life to purchase my salvation.
We do have a choice. We have freedom of worship, and no matter how restrictive it may get, no one will be able to separate us from the love of God. It is time for the church to take a stand for what is right. We are free to make a choice, today, and as the scripture has said, I will choose to serve the Lord.
“ 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).
It is true that our land needs to be healed, and the first step to getting that to happen is to humble ourselves and pray. The Lord is waiting for us to realize that he is in control and willing to turn this scenario around on our behalf, but we must be willing to trust him, and seek his face for it to happen.
I am thankful that I can call on the name of the Lord. In this week’s Lattereign we are reminded that it is not only our choice, but our duty to be separate from the world. Separate by Choice
