Lord, We Need You

Think about it,  It seems as though everytime we as a nation get too far from God and His word, evil and tradgedy strike in a big way, and always to the point which we all remember that He (God) is the only one who can save us. 
Its just like when you instruct your child, and that child disobeys you,  it angers you and you correct them.   Well, God is the Father of us all, the Creator of everything that is, and we are being disobedient!

Please Lord, have mercy on your children!   Protect us,  keep us, and guide us everyday. Amen

If my people which are called by my name will humble themselves,  pray, seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways,  then I will hear from heaven,  I will forgive their sins and I will heal their land.  2 Chronicles 7:14

One word

PRAY!

As I watch the beginning of political conferences,   political debates, and the news concerning the killing of innocent people,   I understand why so many seem to be losing hope concerning the state of our nation and yes,  even our world.  

I’ve come to encourage you, don’t get down about what’s going on in our nation, and in politics right now.  Whatever you do, just don’t be a part of the spreading of the hate.  


Gods word declares that we (Christ followers) are to be “peace keepers”.   So even though you may not understand,  trust God and turn everything over to Him in prayer.  Your pain, your heart break,  your hurt,  even your hate,  and your inability to understand just how all this could be happening in the 21st century etc.


GOD IS SOVEREIGN!!  
There is absolutely nothing that happens in the universe that is outside of God’s influence and authority. As King of kings and Lord of lords, God has no limitations. 


2 Chronicles 7:14

If My people which are called My name will humble themselves,  pray, seek My face and turn from their wicked ways,  then will I hear from Heaven.  I will forgive their sins and I will heal their land.

” Children of Isreal”, They tried it too

When I wroke to the news of another mass shooting last night in Louisiana, I wondered about the safety of my family,  my husband, my children and my grandchildren.   With all this hatred, what’s going to happen to us and our nation??

If you are trying to “wrap your head around” all the violence, hate and tolerance of ungodly behavior which seems to have taken control of our nation,  you are not alone, But! we must realize that our Government is attempting to take God’s laws and prayer out of a nation which was founded on God and His Word.  Living in obedience to Gods word is what made America the most powerful nation in the world.  So if we take God out,  what does that mean for our nation?  The power of God is taken out as well.

We need Him, but He is, or maybe He has already taken His hands off of our nation until we turn back to him and cry out to Him as our Savoir and our strength again.

“Children of Israel”.

Read about us (them),  Exodus 20, 2 Kings 17

We Have The Power, Lets Use It!!

Be careful what you allow into your life, especially under the cloak of entertainment.  I see it so clearly, and the Bible warns us of the devil, his cunning and crafty ways  (hes  smarter than we will ever be).  He is boldly inserting unnatural relationships into tv shows,  commercials, music, in  everything, and everywhere.   Can you see it?

Hollywood, and our government is trying to redefine life as we have known it, as Hod defined it.  They have forced this lifestyle on us.   You can’t watch TV without profanity, homosexuality, sex, violence, bullying, and just plain meanness.    I suggest that if we as followers of Jesus Christ, lovers of God, would stop watching and listening to the “mess” that has become entertainment,  Hollywood would change what they are creating and putting on television.    After all they make money by what we watch (ratings)!.  We decide what stays on tv  by what we watch!!.  Stop watching, turn the channel when you see those un Christ like things,  then you send a clear message of your disapproval!

God is watching as we conform to the world and its ways.  We will be judged for what we do, as well as how we live our lives. 

Do you want to take the chance that it’s just entertainment?.   It’s a trick of the devil to change our way of thinking of what  “normal” is! !

17.  “For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? 18. And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear? 19. Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator.”  1 Peter 4:17-19
