Last night, I watched the election results from 5:30 pm until well after Donald Trump gave his acceptance speech. My wife was bored to tears but all the while, I was praying ‘ Lord, do not turn your grace from us. There are still good, God fearing people hear in America. Give us one last chance please’. Well, if you watched, you saw that it took until 3:00AM eastern standard time to finally call Pennsylvania for Trump. We saw Hillary, or rather heard that she called Trump to congratulate him. My immediate response was to thank God for giving America one last chance. Like the prisoner on death row being lead toward the electric chair but gets the governors last minute reprieve, I was thanking God for the chance to show God that there are still God fearing people here in America.
Now, if you have read my prior blogs you know that Trump was not my first nor my second choice for President, but in my opinion, he is a better choice than Hillary. Don’t get me wrong, Trump is NOT the savior of freedom in America but only an instrument to allow America to show that we are still deserving of Gods grace.
It is written in Gods word that : If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
Read that again. There are actions that we must take first.
We MUST humble ourselves first. “having or showing a modest or low estimate of one’s own importance.” Showing in our heart that we put GOD above ourselves… Showing God that we put ourselves below God.
…and pray. Communing with God. Asking His council and waiting for an answer.
…and seek my face. In order for us to be in the presence of God, we MUST be pure in heart and mind. We MUST spiritually purify ourselves in order to be able to seek His grace.
…and turn from their wicked ways. If you do that which you know God would not approve of, then you are doing wickedness. Hate, lust, greed, covetousness, to seek that which you do not deserve, to defile yourself and your spirit is wickedness. We MUST purge ourselves and our society of such wickedness.
THEN I will hear from heaven, forgive their sins and heal their land.
So there are things that we, as individuals AND a society, MUST do first. It requires action on our part which will prove to GOD that we are ready for his blessings.
So, get out the information. Instruct your children, neighbors and friends. Our nation was once a light on a hill, unfortunately, we allowed that light to blind us and we allowed ourselves to forget where our blessings came from and why. We can receive the blessings of liberty once again as long as we remember who gave us those blessings first.
What do you think? What will you do?
