For several months I’ve fretted until I was wedged in sadness. Our Country is walking away from truth, goodness, righteous behavior. So fretful have I been that Shingles erupted on my face a few days ago. I think it is a rebuke, the Holy Spirit telling me to refocus. Is “His throne in the heavens”? Does “His kingdom rule over all”? I am called back to trust: trust in Jesus Christ and His love for me, repent of unbelieving, asking for the power of the Holy Spirit within me as a believer. I must remember the love of “Our Father which art in Heaven . . .”
In Scripture, 1John calls to me, “These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you. But the anointing which you have received of Him abides in you, and you need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teaches you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it has taught you, you shall abide in Him. And now, little children, abide in Him; that, when He shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before him at His coming. If you know that He is righteous, you know that every one that does righteousness is born of Him.” (1John 2:26 to 29)
“Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.” (1John 4:4)
Join me . . . Let’s pray, seek His face, turn from our wicked ways . . . then He will hear from heaven, forgive our sin and heal our land.
