"Gather yourselves together, yes, gather together, O shameless nation, Before the decree is issued, Or the day passes like chaff, Before the Lord's fierce anger comes upon you, Before the day of the Lord's anger come upon you! Seek the Lord, all you meek of the earth, Who have upheld His justice, Seek righteousness, seek humility, It may be that you will be hidden in the day of the Lord's anger." Zephaniah 2:1-3
As a nation, we have a choice to make; we can turn toward God or turn away from Him and His ways. This nation was founded on Christian principles by God-fearing men who knew that it was God who could cause a nation to succeed or fail.
We must realize that we are in a critical time in our nation. We are at a crossroads. We will either choose to go God's way or our own way. I'm afraid in recent years, we have chosen the latter. God will not force Himself on anyone or force His ways on any nation. We have the freedom to choose!
As Christians, one of our responsibilities is to speak up when the things of God are being stepped on. You may not think you should get involved because it's the politician's job! I believe that the Lord wants us to stand up for the things of God. If our founding fathers had never stood up, we might not even be a nation today! The Bible tells us that we are to open our mouths against injustice and speak out for righteousness.
Before the Lord's wrath and anger falls upon us as a nation, we must seek the Lord and cause others to seek Him as well.
Daily Prayer Focus: Pray for the leaders of our country! Pray for our nation to come back to the Lord before it is too late!
On The Go Prayer Focus: The Interns who faithfully come to On The Go each year to work for Christ and learn how to do ministry that matters for the kingdom of God.
