First slightly political post ever!!!

Posted: August 6, 2011 in Prayer, Random

yikes… I do not usually post political things, but the U.S. credit rating went from AAA to AA for the first time ever since credit grades were assigned in 1941… In case you are wondering, this is horrible for the nation!

Let us remember that the ultimate authority is God, and He decides who rules and who does not.

Romans 13:1 Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God.

With our credit rating falling and our debt ceiling rising, everyone Christian needs to be praying for our country and its leaders. Not only is it the right thing to do, but God said in His Word He would intervene for us if we seek Him.

2 Chronicles 7:14 if my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.

God also said what would happen if we ignore Him, and turn from the living God.

2 Chronicles 7:19-22 “But if you turn aside and forsake my (Gods) statutes and my commandments that I have set before you, and go and serve other gods and worship them, then I will pluck you up from my land that I have given you… I will cast out of my sight… everyone passing by will be astonished and say, ‘Why has the Lord done thus to this land…?’ Then they will say, ‘Because they abandoned the Lord, the God of their fathers… Therefore he has brought all this disaster on them.'”

With the United States toying with the Ideas of taking ‘in God we trust’ of the money, and ‘under God’ out of the pledge of allegiance, it is no wonder that the country is in bad shape. Collectively we have abandoned God as a country. In Dearborn Michigan you are allowed to give out a Quran, but not a Bible. The call for prayer for the Muslim nation is heard in Dearborn and in Hamtramck Michigan 5 times a day. It seems that any religion besides Christianity is fully accepted and Christians are laughed at. 2 Chron 7 makes it clear what has happened; we have left the living God and went to serve other gods. Even our president quoted the Quran in a speech.

Will you pray for the president and his advisors with me? God knows I did not vote for him and probably will not in the future, but he is in charge and we need to lift him up in prayer. We need to pray for the nation to turn back to God, so that He can revive our land… we cannot revive our land without Him.

Christ be glorified.
