An Idea Borrowed

Years ago on a radio program someone shared that they read a chapter in Proverbs every day. Since there are 31 chapters and the longest month has 31 days it allows you to read through Proverbs on a regular basis. I use it as the launch pad for my personal worship time and branch out from there. On this blog I will try to share some of the insights I have in the Word. I will try to organize them in the archive by reference.

Messing with God’s People

(Proverbs 17:26 KJV)  Also to punish the just is not good, nor to strike princes for equity.

One of the sad truths about our world is that the forces of evil seem to be gaining the upper hand.  When you look at the advance of homosexual demands and intimidation you wonder how long God will withhold His hand of judgment.  When you see the plague of unwed mothers you wonder how society will hold together.  When you look at the shallow, feel good educations our young people are getting you wonder how they will ever be able to understand the teaching of the Bible.

And in the midst of that we see the politically correct brainwashers passing laws to penalize those who still want to live by God’s standards.  It does not speak well for our country.  It is not “good” (2896a).

So?  In a sense it is not our problem.  It is an indictment that the educators, politicians and theologians are pronouncing on themselves.  At the same time we are to be salt and continue to walk in righteousness.  Pray for revival.

I pray every day that the Lord will send a great revival on our land, that we might once more be "one nation under God." It doesn't seem to be happening, though He HAS given us one last political chance with Trump.

Sometimes I think that the beginnings of revival are hard to see. How many thought that the preaching of John Wesley would keep England from revolution?

Grace and peace.
