America, we are loosing sight of Jesus. We are loosing sight of the way, the truth and the light; the only one able to walk us through the suffering our citizens are currently enduring. The only one who truly knows suffering because He alone suffered all pain before us.
There are three basic categories of suffering: emotional, physical, and spiritual–each causing unbearable pain to the human heart, body, and spirit.
Thankfully, because of Jesus, our country has the choice to not have to endure hardships alone. We have the choice to be blessed with the savior of the world’s authority. We have the choice because Jesus took on our burden of suffering at the cross, and all He asks in return is that we believe in what He did for us.
When circumstances seem beyond comprehension, when what you thought was the worst that could ever happen actually turned out to be the best part of your week, I encourage you–do not despair.
We are never alone in our suffering. God is here. He knows heartache, tragedy, and what it feels like to suffer loss. He knows the agony of pain, indignation, and that feeling of despair which causes one to choke.
God knows the negativity that feelings and emotions, sent by satan, try to elicit, so He sent positivity, the Holy Spirit, to tug at our hearts and fortify our minds.
God does this, America, to remind us that He is bigger than any situation.
Do you feel life is a burden and not a pleasure? Are family, friends, work, and even your government not giviing you the delight or peace of mind and protection that you believe they should offer? I’ve felt that way before. I’ve felt let down and that personal and social circumstances are out of control.
The good news is, we don’t have to feel that way. God did not create us to be in distress. He creates through His love; giving ability to us to receive His love.
When you love something, you don’t turn your back on it. You nurture it. You remain close, never abandoning your creation. You draw near and care for it.
Do you know God is omnipresent? He is everywhere at the same time. How awesome is God? This means when we pray to Him from anywhere He hears us. My husband and I have trouble hearing each other when we are in the same room, but not God. Even in the darkest places, places we would never tell our best friend that we have wandered into, God is there and He hears and listens.
Hearing and listening are two separate abilities. Hearing is the perception of sound through the ear canal while listening takes skill. Listening processes what is being said. I guess the truth is my husband and I do hear each other, we just don’t process the words.
But not God. God listens intently. In fact He desires us to pray to Him anytime we choose; communing with God strengthens our relationship with Him.
America, we need to commune with God everyday so that our relationship with Him grows stronger.
If you follow my blog you no doubt read my post:14 Bible Verses to Pray Over Your Home. It was written to encourage prayer for God’s dominion over your home. With humble hearts you were asked to specifically pray in every room of your home, calling to the Lord, asking for blessings and favor as you proclaimed His faithful word.
As Christians that’s what we are supposed to do. We are to proclaim God’s word, His goodness, over every aspect of life. This means not just our lives but also over our homes, families, businesses, travel, relationships, health…everything.
And everything includes our government.
Yes, God should have sovereign authority over our government. But our government has slowly turned its back to God, forgetting the covenant our forefathers made with Him. We are losing track of right and wrong and need to get America back to understanding what President George Washington knew:
