Trust, Pray, Repent


Isaiah 40:31KJV

"But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint."

Fear not!  Things are in a bit of turmoil in our country right now, but God! No matter what happens, you and your family are safe in God's hands. If our nation decides that they want to pursue a destructive path, they will. God has given each of us free will. We can pray that God will intervene, and I believe he did Election Tuesday. More Evangelicals voted than have in decades. Holy Spirit is speaking to his people.

We must trust God no matter what. We can do all things through Christ who strengthens us. I'm praying for a great awakening in the nation, a revival in the church, and true repentance among believers. 

You know the verse that says, "If my people, who are called by my name... I will heal their land." When it's quoted, it's usually without the "and turn from their wicked ways". Most Christians are too much like the world. Well, maybe all Christians are. 

We must ask Holy Spirit to show us where we need to turn from our wicked ways... even if they are wrong ways of thinking or bad habits. We must take our Christianity seriously.

Just a thought...

  2. "but God!"

    Amen!

    Isn't it who are called by my name, not by my ways? May be just a different translation. That caught my eye!

    1. Yes! I wrote it rather quickly and made a mistake. Thanks so much for catching it. Hmmm... now to ponder the difference in being called by His ways instead of His name!

      Blessings, happy Thanksgiving,
      Laura

  3. Laura, you are so very correct---ooops! I mean GOD is correct;) He is in control and sadly, the Bible also states that the road to destruction is wide. Reminds me:
    A really good friend of mine lost her husband to cancer at the age of 45 a few years back, she still had two teens at home and I had been trying to witness to her, but she had such a strong-hold on all the other beliefs she had. She wondered why God "took" her husband so young when their family was so dependent on him. I told her that I don't believe for one minute that God would allow a disease like cancer take over the people He loved so much. And that God, Himself, did in fact send down someone with a cure for cancer. And she asked, "Well then, why do we not know this cure?" And I told her, "Perhaps the one with the cure was aborted by his/her mother." It sank very deep with her and less than a year later, she did accept Jesus as her Saviour, and so did her daughter. Her daughter and son are now attending church regularly and it is my hope that her son too, will come to know Christ.
