A THOUGHT FOR THE DAY 3/21/15

March 21, 2015

I do believe that because for the most part, (and there are certainly exceptions) Americans have failed to “wake up” to the warnings and dealings of God, that another wave of calamity will be sent, perhaps terrorism again or war on our own soil as the article below alludes to. Or economic collapse or even something else…God knows. It has been so puzzling to me how the churches, at this most critical time in history, have failed to come together in fasting, prayer, and a unified voice before God. But have continued with “business as usual” in a time that has been anything but usual. I have to count myself in that number and ask God’s forgiveness….. I pray that we each wake up as individuals and that our leaders will understand the hour we live in and pray like never before and act and speak as God leads without fear and without regard to losing a few offended congregants. In HItler’s Germany…..many of the churches were guilty of hearing the trains go by with screaming Jews heading to their death…..and to their shame…..they, instead of prayer and intervention, stood up and sang their Hymns a little louder to drown out the cries of the Jews. Are we guilty of the same? Christian brothers and sisters also being slaughtered along with innocents of all kind and evil is prevailing. Maybe when it hits our shores… will we do what we should have been doing all along? It breaks my heart because it could have been stopped by putting down the games we play and luxuries we indulge in and truly engaged in spiritual warfare together….. I hope you will read the article below and realize just how close this is…. I pray that each reader will take this to heart and to prayer…God is always listening. May He find us each on the right side of His will….

A THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

“I’m just one person, what can I do to to change things in America?” we may find ourselves saying. Here are a few practical ideas…..

1.Pray fervently with all your heart
2. Pray in agreement with a spouse, friend, another believer etc.
3. Pray for the Pastors in your area by name; asking God to put on their hearts to come together in unity and lead their congregations in prayer for America.
4. Be aware….pay attention to the news and…..yes, pray!
5. Contact your congressmen and representatives and give them a word of encouragement to fight the good fight and do what is best for America. Everyone needs encouragement and yours may be the very one to spur them on. They have MUCH against them.
6. Contacting is easy……just google for the names of your areas elected representatives and send them an encouraging email. They each have a site to receive from their constituents and they want to hear what you are thinking. You can put them on your facebook so that you can keep up with what they are doing…..and since we are ON facebook alot….it makes it easier to keep up with things.
7. Speak up as you feel God leading you. Most people are in the dark because our main stream media limits what they share. Sometimes just sharing the 411 can change things.
8. Rejoice …..God is in control and because you are aware….you will not be caught by surprise. Jesus Christ came to earth in dark days….when His people were under Roman oppression…..and yet….it did not stop the work of God. He conquered. And in Christ we can overcome in every situation the future holds for us. Our citizenship is in heaven. We’re just passing through and hoping to give glory to the One that gave us life!
9. Love God with all your heart and your neighbor as yourself! Share Christ

10. Micah 6:8
“He has shown you, O man, what is good; And what does the Lord require of you. But to do justly, To love mercy, And to walk humbly with your God?” Amen
