We all have opinions and certainly allowed as part of our civil liberties; but, can also be extremely scary when you realize you can’t fix stupid. When I read the diversity of opinions across the internet of what we should do, could or didn’t do, my adoration and love for God grows even more profound.
I personally believe only God can justly judge the hearts of mankind and has the final say in determining what is honest, equitable and impartial. We can spout off opinions in times of unrest and controversy about what we believe to be truth; I include myself in that choir. As much as we would like to see ourselves as little Gods, we are not. God is God and we are not. We can’t change what God divinely appoints for the present moment in which we live.
Go ahead and protest if you must, shout your voice from the rooftops of the Capitol building, engage in comments on Facebook or across other internet groups, do whatever you believe is necessary to make a difference. However, do it with the understanding that your political views and actions don’t persuade God. It is only through prayer and intersession that we make a difference.
Perhaps you don’t believe in God, but disbelief won’t change the eternal plan set forth for this world before the beginning of time. The only way to solicit God’s attention for what our nation faces right now is prayer and a cry for forgiveness against the sin of making ourselves righteous without a need for our Creator.
Heavenly Father, you are high and above all things
“Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come.” Ephesians 1:21
Give us wisdom as a nation to make the right choices for all those affected by this pandemic. Unite us in prayer for the healing of our families and forgiveness for assuming we can run our life’s without you.
Let the blaming cease, but instead let us collectively reach out to you in prayer for restoration of our nation. Send an outpouring of your Holy Spirit upon humanity that acknowledges our need for You.
