I suppose what the Lord is impressing upon me lately is how the sociopolitical realm of America is characterized by a greater lack of civility and consensus than at any time I can remember, dividing us into ever more deeply fragmented factions. It used to be that we were American Christians first, and then left or right, conservative or liberal, Democrat or Republican, pro-choice or pro-life. But not any more! We seem to have succumbed to the same malady that has afflicted the Church for two millenia, namely, sectarian bickering and infighting. We need to heed the scriptural warning, "But if you bite and devour one another [in partisan strife], be careful that you [and your whole fellowship] are not consumed by one another" (Galatians 5:15 Amplified). In this way, we Americans have become our own worst enemies.
.....Our society appears to have drifted away from those moorings, for a variety of reasons, and only the ushering in of God's Kingdom through Christ's return will set the ship aright.
God has been impressing me for a while now to be still. To shut up and listen. So much detrimental change, so fast, coming in tidal waves..a person doesn't even have a chance to absorb one thing before it's something else...from the unavailable birth certificate to the recent attack on the Catholic church...and all in between...I have fussed, emailed, made phone calls, contacted friends, raged, until my brain is just frozen and worn out. I feel overwhelmed...hopeless...my country is being destroyed right before my eyes, and my pitiful little protests are like a whisper in a whirlwind....then, I started hearing God...not His actual voice, but His tug....you know that warm, indescribable "God" feeling that is like no other...right in the middle of your chest...he says "be still and know that I am God"....how marvelous is that...."be still and know that I am God"....why didn't I think of that? After all, did He not tell us of these days? Why are we surprised? Our job is to occupy till he comes...fight the good fight...bring as many as we can to Him...but do it in His peace. We are living this part of the story. If we seek His solace, rest on His power and His word, and His promise to us..."my sheep know my voice"....we will be ok. He is here, right in the middle of all this turmoil. With us...and He will snatch us right up out of it when it's time. In the meantime, I know He told me..."be still"...and "occupy till I come".
So, that is what I will try to do. I know people who don't know Him. Now, I pray that He will show me how to do something about that...He has to help me...I can't do it on my own.
Precious Jesus Christ, my Savior....In all humility I confess that I am a sinner and I know that you died for me.
For your own purposes and for your own glory, you have put me here on this earth at this time. My prayer to you, Lord...is make me wise enough to hear your voice and do what you ask. Let me live the rest of the life you have given me for your purpose. Please show me how to bring even just one person to know you. Then, I will know my life was for a reason. I love you, Jesus.
