What is happening to our country?
I hear that comment so much lately. I must admit that I ask myself that question almost every day. We have so many changes coming at us it makes our head spin. Our government is morphing into some sort of distorted socialist, anti capitalist nation at a breathtaking speed. We have witnessed over 30 % of our economy taken over by the government in less than one year. If the President gets his way with healthcare, the government will then have taken control of 50% of the nations economy in less that a one year! No one would have imagined this just a few years ago.
We have troops feeling abandon in foreign lands. These are brave men and women who voluntarily risked their life to comb the mountains of the country that housed and trained our enemy from 911. Will we forget those brave soldiers who have already died in that land and cause their sacrifice to be in vain?
Here in America, our unemployment is over 10% in some states, companies are going broke every day, people are confused about their future. Throughout all this turmoil our President, Congress, and Senate are digging in, making Government control top priority. What is happening to our country?
I believe that you can describe what is happening in one word; CORRECTION. We simply got so far off course that it is taking drastic measures to get back on track. America was founded and established on Godly principles. Since it’s beginning, America has been the leader in promoting freedom and other Godly principles in the world. Over the years we have blessed the world with so many good things. The liberals in this country may not like it, our critics may hate us for it, but like it or not we are a nation of Gods People! Being a nation of Gods people has it’s blessings, but it comes with responsibility. I believe that we have entered into a time of responsible accountability in this nation. God loves us and is waking us up and telling us to get back on track.
Let me give you a scripture that tells us what we should do next:
2Chronicles 7:14 (NLT) ….if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.
Notice that God isn’t calling on the heathen or the the atheist, or the wicked who serve other Gods; if MY PEOPLE who are CALLED BY MY NAME will humble themselves and pray!
So when you find yourself asking that question, (“What is happening to our country?” ) remember that the way out of this is not found in the hands of those who are dismantling the country and expanding evil; The way out is firmly placed in the hands and hearts of believers across this land. If ever there was a time to follow 2Chronicles 7:14, it is now! I like our odds because the solution has been placed in the hands of the Believers, not the wicked
One more thing; I am personally excited about where we are because I have extreme faith in God, His children, and this great nation. It may get worse before it gets better, but it will get better! I believe we are on the threshold of a great Move of God like we have not seen. The evidence is clear, we are living in the last days. I believe that God loves this world so much that He will try everything to reach us before returning. After all, He has paid a tremendous price to save us, He has proven His love and His willingness to go the distance to save us. Christians, are you ready to work the greatest Harvest in this worlds history?
“If MY people, who are called by MY name……..!”
