The part of our Constitution that talks about "separation of church and state" was written to insure that the government could not tell us when and where to go to church. Right?
So, why as Christians have we allowed so much "crap" from our government to control our lives?
(And I am not talking "politics" so much here ... Talking about our freedoms! Not just the freedom to worship when and where and as we choose either. The freedom to LIVE!!!)
And why as Bible believing Christians have we stopped believing the Word of God???
Oh, but as a Bible believing Christian you say that you DO
believe the Word of God. Yeah, I thought I did too.
Until God confronted me in the quiet darkness one morning.
The question of God is simple ... either there is a God or there
is not a God.
If I say that I believe there IS a God -- then, I am affirming
that I believe the Word of God. The Bible.
Not a part of it.
Not just what I agree with.
Not just what I like.
Not just what I can apply when and where I want to.
But I am affirming that in choosing to believe there is a God -
then, I am believing the TOTAL Word of God.
Then, why do I quote II Chronicles 7:14 ... but I don't believe it? I don't live it?
Has God changed??? Has God's Word expired???
"If My people, who are called by My Name will humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways before 2012 then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land." ???
Hmmm...I don't remember seeing a DATE inserted there!!! (And believe me - I have read and read and read it!)
So, if there is no date inserted - then that means there is STILL HOPE for America!!! All is NOT lost!!!
I am sick of hearing Christians say that God is thru with America. That there is no more hope. Time has run out for America to return to God. No more blessing of God on America.
If only God's people called by God's Name will humble themselves, seek His face, turn from their wicked ways!!!
God, start with ME --- today.
But, as a Christian I have no wicked ways .... I have confessed my sin, been forgiven and repented.
Yeah, that's what I thought, too!!!
What has my language been today? Proverbs 4:23-27
What have my thoughts been today? Philippians 4:8
Have I sought God with all my heart, all my mind, all my strength today? Deuteronomy 4:29
Have I worshipped God in spirit and in truth today? John 4:24
Have I read the Word because I wanted to draw close to God today?
Who have I shared Jesus with today? Acts 1:8
Who have I ministered to today?
What have I done not in faith today? "Without faith, it is impossible to please God."
Who have I blamed for my wicked ways today?
How many times have I said that I have not sinned, have no wicked ways, today? I John 1:6, 8
See what I mean when I said that God "confronted" me???
My heart's desire is to humble myself, pray, seek God's face, turn from my wicked ways. See what God will do with me.
But I am only ONE.
Wasn't Adam (the first) only one?
Wasn't Noah only one when he built the ark?
Wasn't Moses only one when he lead millions out of Egypt?
Wasn't David only one when he faced Goliath?
Wasn't Gideon only one when he faced the armies?
Wasn't Rahab only one when she hid the Israelite spies?
Wasn't Mary, the mother of Jesus, only one?
Wasn't Paul only one?
Even Judas was only one.
Wasn't Billy Sunday only one?
Wasn't Christ only one?
Where does the list stop???
Yes, I am only ONE.
But according to Galatians 2:20 ... I am ONE WITH CHRIST!!!
So, just how limited am I?
How limited is Christ in me?
At what point do I lay down myself and stand for Christ?
Stand for America???
