The Good News in the Midst of the Bad

I resolve to pray more and complain less.

We are told in Hebrews 4:12 that the word of God is living and powerful (alive and active), piercing even to diving soul and spirit, joints and marrow, and that it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.   Did you ever wonder what would happen if Christians put aside their own ideas and traditions, and began memorizing and reciting scripture?   Would the Bible regain authority in America?   We cannot deny that God’s word has not only lost authority, but it is regarded with disdain, mocked, and denied. 

It is a real problem in America that the church even agree.   It should never be the Baptists against the Pentecostals, and the non-denominational believers against the Church of Christ believers.   We are all the body of Christ, and it is vitally important that we come together as one.   Let me say that again:   We MUST come together as one to combat the evil that is spreading in our country like the fast growing cancer it is!

We want Americans to come together 
and accept each other’s differences,
Christians must do that all the more!

The general consensus among Christians is that America is going to hell in a hand-basket.   If we remain on the road we are currently traveling, no doubt America as we know it will be destroyed.   It does not have to be this way!  The God we serve is a forgiving God, and He is merciful.  It is my belief that America is still standing because there are praying people here…and there are nations under great bondage who have persecuted Christians praying for us.   Yes, that’s the truth.

 
I urge you to make your own individual walk with God stronger.  Draw close to Him, allow Him to draw close to you.   Make a real effort to read your Bible more.  Make an even bigger effort to memorize scripture and recite…out loud…scripture.  Words are important.  With words, Heaven and earth were formed, and the universe was spoken into existence.  The Word, His words…speak them out, often and confidently. 

If we really want to make America great again, we need to seek Him first…the rest will fall into place.  That, my friends, is the really good news. 

If you’d like a suggestion on a verse to memorize…start with this one:

Awake, you who sleep,
Arise from the dead,
And Christ will give you light.
Ephesians 4:14

  1. I'm going to start reciting scripture again; I got out of the habit of it, but good reminder to do so. I do read the Bible 5/7 days of the week and pray, but there is something powerful about God's word being spoken out loud.

  3. Great post. I've been on a journey lately to up my prayer life. I pray constantly, but I need to take time and focus. Really talk to Him. Not just while I'm in the "busy", but make my prayer time a huge part of my day. I hope that makes sense ;)

    1. Makes PERFECT sense and I think we all do that...talk to him a lot "on the go" and I think that is wonderful, but it is of utmost important to have our closet time, as well.
