The world is in chaos. Countries are going bankrupt and people are being killed all over the world for what they believe. Times are getting rough and for some, they are losing hope that things will never change. I don't have all the answers and never claimed to have, but I do know that if we put our trust in what we see today, there is no hope.
Our government is having trouble making major decisions and an election is on the rise with very few candidates that could do the job. The people running our government are more for themselves than what's right and we are all running around without a voice.
As crazy as it may seem, God is still in control. I am sure you, like me, question it sometimes. But in truth, God is here watching the chaos and having a hand on the troublesome spots. Even when David was hiding in the caves from Saul, God had his pulse on David and his followers. God was building David's army of trustworthy men and raising them up so that they could lead Israel to greatness. Today, we wonder who that person will be.
As I have said before, I don't have all the answers but I do cry out to someone that does. I turn towards Jesus in good and bad times. I know that even when the going gets rough; He is in control. I may not always like how long it takes to get my answers but from experience, I know the only one I can count on is Jesus.
We must not be naive about world events. We must pray about them. Many things have changed in History due to prayer. When one or more get together, God hears us. We as women have a great charge ahead of us, to raise the next generation. To pray for the men and women serving in our forces and to be women that God can call on. We are part of the great commission and it's time we start standing in the gap for men and women everywhere.
Isaiah 31: 1 NKJV:
Woe to those who go down to
Egypt for help,
And rely on horses,
Who trust in chariots because they
And in horsemen because they are very strong,
But who do not look to the Holy One of Israel,
Nor seek the LORD!
Let's seek the Lord with all our hearts today and be glad that we don't have to count on the chariots. Rise up in prayer for all the women everywhere!
My prayer today:
Lord, You are the Lord of our lives. We want to make you everything. We want to rely on you in times of trouble and in times of joy. Help us to remember that we don't need horses and chariots, all we really need is You. You are the Lord over Israel and the Lord over America but most of all, You are the Lord over all of our hearts and we wish to make You our King. Please help us to pray for our sisters and give them courage to fight whatever their circumstances. Give us strength of character and a willingness to hear from You. We want to be Your eyes, Your heart, Your ears. We ask this because we love You and we love those we don't even know. Thank you for being a God that is for all time! We need You Lord, come into our hearts today and make us prayer warriors for Your people. AMEN
