Jeramiah 1: 5 Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.
Psalm 139:14 I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are Thy Works; and that my soul knoweth right well.
With all of the evil and wickedness in the world today, it is so hard to think about the things future generations are going to face. The challenges are mounting constantly against those with the least hint of a moral compass.
Movies, music and the behavior of those around us that at one time would have shaken our conscious, seems to be issues we have learned to live with, because the enemy constantly works at wearing us down to consider what we know to be wrong as “normal”. He is shaping society to accept those things, once hidden, desensitize, even some believers to back down from a stand against sin, just to avoid conflict.
When we turn on the tv and see “pastors” misusing the Word of God, manipulating Scripture for material gain, we should be offended, not just shake our heads and think to ourselves, “Well, there’s another one”. Instead, we should fearlessly call out apostasy and heresy, not hatefully, but for the love of those who are misrepresenting God’s Word and for the sake of those accepting a lie as Truth.
One last thing, then I’ll close. Take a look at the headlines today or Youtube, whatever your source of news (and if you don’t watch it, I do not blame you one bit!).It is so disturbing that those who are entrusted to care for children are the very ones bring harm. Both unborn and born are subjected to cruelty, even to death at times at the hands of their own parents or guardians? Doctors who vow to protect and preserve life, tear children from the womb where God placed them. This is all madness and wretched!
So what are Christians to do, cease from bringing children into this corrupt world, allowing only those who aren’t aborted, the young ones who are not taught of Christ and His Love to raise up to control this and every nation? Clearly the Father continues to bless us with beautiful babies, born both to Christians and non-believers, and He does nothing without reason.
We have no idea what God has planned for the future. Reading Revelation, we do know that the closer to His coming, the more harrowing it will be for those of us who believe in Him, but we also know that we can trust Him, and nothing will be out of His Control.
Let’s enjoy our blessings and pray for them. We know the Lord created them for a purpose, for such a time as this.
I’d like to welcome our new beautiful granddaughter, born just last week. She, and our other two, mean years of prayer for their upbringing.
I can honestly say, with the Lord, I have peace in my heart as they grow, because our God makes calm out of chaos, and beauty from ashes.
Thank You for this day
Please forgive our sins against You, others and ourselves
Thank You for these precious children
Please protect those who are already born
And for the unborn
We are in awe, how You create every little bit of who we are
Knowing us, You love Your children
You protect and provide for us
You don’t give us hope, You ARE our hope
You are our life
Let us lift our voices to You in Praise
For the many blessings You give us
For the lessons we learn
For Your Word
For Your life, death and resurrection
Please give us new love for You each day
Lord, please be with these children as they venture out into the world
Let them know Your Presence
Let them acknowledge and trust in You
Please let them know them as their God
And that You will recognize them as Your people
For each child and every adult who believes in the Saving Power of Jesus’ Name
To hear one day from You, Well done, My good and faithful servant. Enter into My Rest.”
In the Powerful Name of Jesus
