God of the universe is a multitasker – He never stops working.
There are dominant works one can see that God does, like healing the sick or restoring relationships. We pray for positive outcomes to these unpleasant situations and feel blessed when we visually, emotionally, physically, or spiritually experience His response. But God also does works for us – everyday – works that we never bother to notice. Major works, works that sustain us and keep life easy.
Maybe we don’t notice these works because we didn’t specifically pray for them or, is it because we simply take them for granted?
Esteemed leaders come and go. They live their appointed time to accomplish a critical task then, by natural order, are gone. Some of the greatest leaders are called to forward a nation. Others are called to shepherd industries like science, education, business, or health. Their achievement may last; their being does not. Even religious leaders claim a last breath on earth (though One in particular regained His).
Once leaders depart, eventually, another leader emerges.
Though leaders differ in person and accomplishments they all have something in common:
Though doubters deny the worthiness of Jesus they can not stop those who believe in our hearts Jesus is the son of God. Jesus is holy, His name is power, His majesty surpasses all understanding. Like stones are unstoppable at crying out to the Creator, doubters are unable to stop believers from shouting for joy at the sound of His name.
Luke 19:37-40 When he came near the place where the road goes down the Mount of Olives, the whole crowd of disciples began joyfully to praise God in loud voices for all the miracles they had seen: “Blessed is the king who comes in the name of the Lord!” “Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!” Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to Jesus, “Teacher, rebuke your disciples!” “I tell you,” he replied, “if they keep quiet, the stones will cry out.”
Thank you, Christian Americas! Thank you for taking time to pray each night at 9 PM Eastern Standard Time for our beloved country.
Christian prayer warriors are making a difference in the direction America is heading. God bless you!
Look what you have accomplished…Roe Vs. Wade is no more. The Lord hears the humble cries and requests of a nation that longs to serve God. Our united voice of humility and repentance at 9 PM EST each night is helping America reclaim obedience to God.
God is good. Though we may not feel His presence at all times, at all times – His presence is with us.
Feeling His presence is often relative to the location of your walk with God. Do you believe you are close to Him, strolling side by side? Or are you watching from a distance, not understanding His magnificence as He interacts with others?
I encourage you not to remain afar from our LORD but instead boldly approach Him, as others have done, by increasing your faith in who He is. God is patient as He awaits you to grow your faith. As you do this He will warmly welcome you into His presence.
Last week I posted the need for American Christians to stop remaining quiet, to stop allowing elected officials to push America deeper into a pit of immorality. American Christians must understand the impact of remaining neutral. Remain neutral – being neither hot nor cold – is basically an affront to God.
Remaining neutral on topics that affect the stability of Christian freedoms and morals in America, for generations to come, offers no hope for a stable righteous America. If we remain neutral the bad guys win because no-one will be standing firm on God’s word. Neutrality never helps the victim, it enables the oppressor.
God is not neutral, He will not stand with those who do not claim Him.
Christians know satan is always on the attack. We know his evil actions come not only in the form of direct hits like personal anxiety and mental exhaustion. Satan takes on many forms. He maneuvers and manipulates anyway he can, hoping we take our eyes off the Word and focus only on the problem.
The devil’s intentions, always concealed, are never for our good, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy;”.
Thankfully, by keeping our eyes on the Word we learn satan’s wicked ways. Through diligent scripture reading we can prepare to recognize evil’s purposeful assaults agains us.
As a Christian, are you waiting for God to change the shouting ways of the world? We know the morality of God is slowly being subdued: His word talked over, the definition of biblical marriage rewritten with lies, even truth defining man and woman is edited with society’s opinions.
God does not want Christians muffled by the shrieks of satan. We know God desires His word to be clearly heard in our country and all over the world. Jesus even instructed His believers to go forth and proclaim Him to “all nations”.
“Teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.”
