Where Do We Turn Now

Do we need to start over?   Go back to our roots?  Where has the morals that was set from the beginning gone?

1 Corinthians 15:33

Do not be deceived: “Bad company ruins good morals.”

2 Timothy 2:15

Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth.

“So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.

Romans 13:8-10

Owe no one anything, except to love each other, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law. For the commandments, “You shall not commit adultery, You shall not murder, You shall not steal, You shall not covet,” and any other commandment, are summed up in this word: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.

Our worlds moral standards obviously went out the window years ago.  We have become complacent, being more concerned for self than we are our fellow man.  Where did this start?  What were the first actions that took place that began our great country down a road that has lead us to today?

If we were to go back to our roots, what this country was built on and took a good look at where we messed up, could it be fixed?  Personally I think it could.  But we would have to go back to God to make that happen.

God is still in control!  It’s the men and women on this earth that have allowed Satan to penetrate their hearts & minds, who are confusing the issues.

Revelation 21:8

But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.”

Proverbs 11:9

With his mouth the godless man would destroy his neighbor, but by knowledge the righteous are delivered.

We all need to go back to the Bible.

There is plenty more about who we should be as a nation written in these words.  There is also plenty more about Who we should be turning to.

Jeremiah 29:11-14

11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.12 Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. 14 I will be found by you,” declares the Lord, “and will bring you back from captivity. I will gather you from all the nations and places where I have banished you,” declares the Lord, “and will bring you back to the place from which I carried you into exile.”

In the days that come, where confusion caused by the the master of deception, Satan, wants to grab us and lead us astray, WE MUST STAND FIRM on the promises that we know are TRUTH, God’s Word!

Ask ourselves…….

  1. Who am I laying my trust in?
  2. What am I willing to Stand Firm on?
  3. Who is my Lord bringing up to lead?
  4. What can I do to make a change?

1 Corinthians 1:26-31

26 Brothers and sisters, think of what you were when you were called.Not many of you were wise by human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble birth. 27 But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. 28 God chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the things that are not—to nullify the things that are, 29 so that no one may boast before him. 30 It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God—that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption. 31 Therefore, as it is written: “Let the one who boasts boast in the Lord.”

So I pray……………

Lord, I know that you alone know the future.  I know that you have made this world and your plans will be carried out.  I trust that regardless of mans ways and the pain that our decisions have and will cause, I know that you will carry us through.  I ask you Lord to help the people that trust in you to stand firm.  To draw their strength and knowledge only from you and to be willing to follow through with your directions for them.  I trust in you! I ask you to STOP the deceptions of the evil one from penetrating the minds and confusing the issues.  I ask you to make clear, to those who have been influenced by his lies, where our lack of faith has lead us and how to change our direction.  I trust in you!   Help me Lord be a voice that leads others to you.  Help me to be brave and give me the understanding that I need to fight off Satan.  Be with us in our decisions and help us to allow the Holy Spirit’s leading and have clear discernment.  Amen!

One thought on “Where Do We Turn Now

  1. Amen. I hope the Lord will see fit thru his work to make it possible for us to stay in touch and one day you will want to see me as I want to see you. Obviousy you love the Lord and I have to say I love the lord, but not as strong as you do. So I ask you to pray to the lord to keep me on this earth so that our day of reckoning will come. I pray that he will help me and now I will pray that our day will come
