There is no wisdom, no insight, no plan that can succeed against the Lord. – Proverbs 21:30
Our country seems to be in a shambles these days. The once staunch belief in God is faltering and sin is quickly filling the hearts of those who are weak. Families are separating, morals are declining, and the ways of the world are seeping in little by little, clouding our view.
Satan is working overtime to destroy this nation that was built on the premise of God. In many ways, he is successful. He has convinced the powers-that-be, that our children do not need discipline in school. Then when swoop in and kill hundreds of their classmates, he rejoices. He has allowed the morals and standards of marriage to be undermined to the point that anything goes. And in this success, he leans back and roars with laughter.
Still, Satan is fooled, for God is mighty. The free choice that the Father has given us allows us to make our decisions – choose our ground. However, what we often forget is that God never changes. His values are the same today that they were when He created this world. He stands to the side, knowing the pathways we will choose, watching as we make decisions to tear away at His world, and He shakes His head in sadness. For when all else fails, God does not.
“There is no wisdom, no insight, no plan that can succeed against the Lord.”(Proverbs 21:30)We as a nation, and we as a people, may think that we are oh, so smart, but we are not. For when God has withstood all He can bear, His discipline will follow. One would think that Satan would have learned; for every one success he has, God has three. Yet he continues to chip away at the values of those who believe. It is not always the big issues that are attacked, it’s the small things – the easy things.
The decisions we face will change and shape the world, and as a group Christians could make a difference if we would unite against the decaying morals that face our children. The key is, “unite.” God will not be outdone. He will not loose the war. His wrath will come down at some point because He is the Creator of all things. If every Christian took a stand against sin, imagine what would happen. Just imagine. Now is the time to take action, to drop to our knees and pray. God is mighty. He is powerful, and He will not be beat. God will prevail.
Prayer: Lord, forgive us where we fall short. Give us strength to overcome.
