Jesus is telling us not to be quiet. He will be there to protect us when we are sharing the gospel. He will have our back!
I know with the former administration and the conflict that we went through there were many Christians that coward down. They angrily accepted the changes that were happening in the world around them. They weren’t bold and standing up for the word of God. They settled for less when God is always about more. We should never settle for less. We are the children of God! We’re the offsprings’ of God himself. We should be boldly telling others about our faith, it should be something that we’re proud to speak about! It should never be something that we’re ashamed of talking about. If we cower down now, what else are we going to see in the future to come? There has to be boundaries set. If we live in a world without boundaries we’re setting ourselves up for more disasters to hit, and we lose the protection of God Almighty. We have to remember what happened to Sodom and Gomorrah. And when God destroyed the world with a flood. I’m afraid a lot of people forget to remember that we’re supposed to fear and love God. I think it’s the fear of God that puts us into submission. It’s the love of God that sustains us. Our heavenly Father disciplines us just like our earthly father does. Why would he want to save or rescue a country that has no conscience or a Godless country? America was built on the foundation of Christian principles. We derived from Judeo Christianity. It was our beliefs that put the law into the system so we could teach others to live by biblical principles and by doing so there were boundaries set.
Personally, I would rather fear man than God. I can’t imagine living in a godless country.
Psalm 39:2 So I remained utterly silent, not even saying anything good, But my anguish increased;
Acts 5:29 Peter and the other apostles replied: “We must obey God rather than human beings!
Ecclesiastes 3:7 a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak,
This is our time to speak up or we could lose our religious freedom! We can't take it for granted!
The enemy, Satan stands by ready to steal, kil and destroy.
Job 1:9 “Does Job fear God for nothing?” Satan replied. 10 “Have you not put a hedge around him and his household and everything he has? You have blessed the work of his hands so that his flocks and herds are spread throughout the land.
America needs the protection of God. If we don’t have the protection of God we will have no country! We need to remember our great Creator and all he has done for us. God’s still in America if he wasn’t everyone in Texas would’ve died. As I sat back and watched people being rescued in Texas you could see the love and work of God through the people. Now, America needs to heal together. We have no idea the impact of Hurricane Harvey yet. We’re still in the survive and rescue mode. But what we do need to remember is that we have a God that can replace everything the enemy destroyed. The day we become silent to God's word is the day we will have no protection.
Psalm 66:16 Come and hear, all you who fear God; let me tell you what he has done for me. 17 I cried out to him with my mouth; his praise was on my tongue. 18 If I had cherished sin in my heart, the Lord would not have listened; 19 but God has surely listened and has heard my prayer. 20 Praise be to God who has not rejected my prayer or withheld his love from me!
I thank God that we have President Trump leading our country, He boldly speaks about God and country! And I thank God for Governor Greg Abbott of Texas that boldly stands and proclaims a day of prayer for Texas. It's giving glory to God that's going to keep this country strong!
The bolder, we become the brighter God's light shines! One match doesn't put off much light but put a 1000 matches together and you can light an entire army.
