Food for the Soul ~ II Chronicles 7:14

Well, the government shutdown ended last week, but the problems in our country remain. The problems we have are the ramifications of our people losing sight of truth, of lines being blurred to the point where we don't even know what the right thing is anymore. What was once wrong is right, and what was right is now wrong. It's like "opposite day", but it never ends.

Many ask, "What can we do?"  God's word lays out the plan for us...humble ourselves, pray, seek Him and turn from our wicked ways.

It starts with each one of us, humbling ourselves before the Lord, acknowledging Him as the Creator. We need to pray for wisdom and courage to make decisions that honor God both on a personal and a national level. We need to seek in His Word, so we know what truth is and can recognize counterfeits. Finally, we need to turn from our self-gratifying, self-indulgent, self-centered ways. It's not enough to know the truth. We must act on it.

Another great promise from our Heavenly Father to forgive and heal! He is so full of grace and mercy to His children. Praying for you this week, sweet friends. Praying that we can all stand up for truth, for what is good and right. Praying that we will each make the decision to follow hard after Him every day.
