We Have Lost Our Way. We are alerted to mass murders across our nation frequently. We throw our hands up and want to blame someone somewhere.
Saturation of social input continue to corrupt and confuse morality. Forbidden practices are often introduced into comedy television programs. What earlier was unmentionable activities, are now giggled at and accepted more readily. Drunkedness, adultery, law-breaking, and other sins gained acceptance by constant brainwashing on television, movies, and even video games. Those once forbidden practices are now no longer “bad”; they are “entertainment”.
After decades of watered-down mortality and social engineering, a nation emerged that does not know what is really right, and what is wrong. Men, women, and children do what is right in their own eyes, as the moral compass God left for man to succeed is discarded.
Judges 17:6 “In those days there was no king of Israel, but every many did that which was right in his own eyes.” Proverbs 21:2 “Every way of a man is right in his own eyes; but the Lord pondereth the hearts.”
This is why our country and the world are in the situation they are in today. Murder is not the fault of guns, nor is it totally the abortion clinic’s fault for butchering millions of young babies. It also is not totally the fault of some chemicals that there are so many addictions. One cannot blame the government for not having enough laws to stop or curb the out-of-control crime.
The fault for man’s decline falls rightly on each man, women, and child of not knowing and obeying God’s preserved truths. Society will always fail when God’s roadmap through life is ignored! Only if His Word is believed and followed will mankind find His way again!
John 17:23 “I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou has sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.”
That same power that broke prison chains, raised Lazarus from the dead, and parted the Red Sea, the same power that healed the blind man, and delivered the delirious from demons, that same power is at work still today. He is the same. Yesterday, today, and forever.
May we stand together and pray for God to heal our land, and strengthen His people. May we pray for all those in authority. May we pray for God’s miraculous intervening, for blind eyes to be opened, for many to see the power of our Lord as never before.
Romans 8:26 “Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities; for we know not what we should pray for as we ought; but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.”
Remembering today this powerful truth upon which this nation was founded. We are “One Nation Under God.” He is where our real hope is found, not in our leaders, not in our economy, not in the condition of our nation today, or any other day. “….my hope comes from Him.” Psalm 62:5
2 Chronicles 7:14 “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.”
