Today starts 21 days free of the chains of social media. Funny thing about chains, they are choices repeatedly made…my own choices. I’ve wasted a lot of precious time over the years mindlessly perusing social media sites that are hostile to my way of thinking.
I won’t miss it,
and it won’t miss me.
One thing that no one is missing, unfortunately, is the confusion and turmoil plaguing our country. (And I’m not talking about the corona plague.) I have a feeling politics are nowhere near finished with us, and likely will get worse before it gets better. There is still a battle raging, and God is very involved. There are believers who will continue to seek His will for our Nation, others will stand aside or stand in the way.
I’ve seen 2 Chronicles 7:14 posted a lot social medial lately. Some people seem to think that God can only move on this nation if the unsaved turn from their wicked ways. Perhaps they do not know just how much prayer has gone up for America, and not just from Americans…years of prayer, fasting, and seeking Him from a faithful remnant to a faithful God. It’s not over. God has heard the prayers of His children.
Now if you’ve posted that scripture on your Facebook timeline or other social media, don’t go thinking I’m judging how you think. But I do see how some are thinking. They are waiting for non-believers to act like Christians, and that’s not going to happen. Deceived people are convinced they are right.
I wish I knew God’s immediate plans for ending the chaos in America, but I do not. I know He is not sitting on the throne wringing His hands, ready to throw in the proverbial towel and lift His protective hand from us. No matter what He allows, still I will trust Him, seek Him, serve Him, and love Him. And still, He is faithful, merciful, loving, and long-suffering.
While this is an age of which most of us have never seen the likes, we cannot get caught up in the spirit of fear that is trying to envelop us. Keep praying and looking up. We are not “done for” just yet.
