AMERICA IS A DIVIDED NATION!
There has never been a time in our history that our nation has been so clearly divided on the important issues that affect our daily lives and the future of our grandchildren. It is time to find some real answers to the very real problems we are facing today. We need to find the answer to the fact that more than 50% of marriages are crashing, leaving families divided and children in crisis. We need to find the answer for why people have stopped believing in miracles, and living lives that are filled with desperation and hopelessness. We need to find the answer for our culture attack on our families, our lifestyles and our faith. We need to know peace once again…in our hearts and in our minds.
It’s time that America realizes that every answer we are seeking is found in God’s Word.
PEOPLE OF FAITH NEED TO BE UNITED!
We have been focused far too long on the things of this world. Like the Prodigal Son, we have wandered into the Far Land, leaving our Father behind.
Does it seem to you that our country is in a state of chaos? This constant and unstable attack on our communities and family values is because we are not reading or rooted in the Word. And if we do not know the Word, how can we apply it?
God will not hold us blameless! We must stand up for what is right, and what is just!
Where can we find God’s plan for our lives? In the Bible! The Bible is filled with promises that will enrich your life, bring joy where sorrow once reigned and give you peace in the midnight hour. When the world is drowning in chaos, you will sleep like a baby, resting upon the promises found in His Holy Word.
Why does America experience continued instability? The answer is simple! America has rejected the truth of God’s Word. And when you reject the truth all that is left is a lie. America would prefer to sculpt a continuous stream of lies rather than believe The Truth!
The U.S. Supreme Court removed the Bible from public schools in 1963. The result…we have welcomed secular humanism with open arms, and it has saturated our millennial generation. We have forgotten the commandment that tells us to have no other gods before Jehovah God! Psalm 33:12 tells us, “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord…”
America has lost her spiritual compass; we must return to God’s Word for much-needed guidance. We must go back to the Bible! The Bible is the most powerful weapon God has ever given mortal flesh. It is THE living, eternal, infallible, inerrant, Holy-Spirit-inspired, indestructible book of riches… a gift that God gave to all of mankind to direct our steps, and lead us down the road to ultimate success in every area of our lives.
Is your marriage failing? God’s Word contains promises that are ‘yes’ and ‘amen’. These precious pages are filled with God’s idea of marriage and illustrations of His undying love for you and for me. The Bible gives us the road map we are to travel as we leave home and become one, man and wife. Marriage is a covenant relationship between two people and God…and God does not break covenant.
The divorce rate in this country is skyrocketing because we have lost our first love. We no longer seek first the Kingdom and His righteousness. We seek to please the flesh.
Are you looking for direction in your life? Have you wandered off of the path that once showed you God’s favor, gave you great fulfillment and true joy? I have great news for you. If you will open God’s Word and saturate your life with His promises, He will lead you in the way everlasting. He promises us that His favor is for life.
But just like a beautiful gourmet dinner, the food will not nourish your body until you eat it. It’s the same with God’s Word…it will not nourish your soul, until you read it, consume it and apply it.
I want to encourage you, as you begin this new year, to make a daily commitment to reading God’s Word. As you consume His Word, you will begin an amazing journey down a path toward your divine destiny. Don’t let the world discourage you. Seek God like never before and He will reveal Himself in ways that you have never imagined.
The Bible is not a book you simply read; it reads you. Open this most precious book and allow the verses to saturate every corner of your life. God has amazing things in store for you, but you must meditate on His Word day and night. Start today. Open the door of your heart so that He can walk in and give you a life that is exceedingly and abundantly more than you can ever ask, think or imagine.
