Am I the only one who is both overwhelmed and outraged by the current state of our world? These past few months or so have been filled with senseless killings of innocent people, political charades, and just plain ol' foolishness. I have been so burdened with all of this all while trying to make sense of it from a spiritual perspective. Is it the wrath of God? Is it end time prophecy being fulfilled? Hmm....
Well, what I have realized is that the real issue is not racism, terrorism, or injustice. These things are just the manifestation of a much larger issue which has to do with the condition of our hearts globally! Our hearts have been subliminally seduced away from God which is why we have all of the hatred, malice, godlessness, perversion, anger, and greed. And let me point out that this is not just true for the world but for the church as well which makes things that much more disheartening.
I am currently 38 weeks pregnant with a precious baby boy, Emory Chase, and while I am excited and ready to meet him, I am also terrified to bring him into the world in its current state. We must pray incessantly for our children because they are at risk of living in a world that is completely void of God's love if we don't repent and turn from our wicked ways.
I usually try and post things that are inspiring and empowering but I was compelled to share my heart (and God's heart) with you today. God is still on the throne and he still has all power but we have to make a decision to align with his will rather than the desires of our flesh.
My Prayer : Lord, have mercy upon us and help us as a people to turn back to you wholeheartedly. I pray that you would strengthen those who are fighting the fight is faith and I pray that you would weaken the grip of the enemy on the hearts and minds of your people. Allow your love to conquer all hatred and fear. I pray this in Jesus' name! Amen.
