My heart is somewhat heavy today. There’s so much chaos, confusion, and division all around us. Every topic, every issue, is so magnified that it’s difficult to know what to focus on. It’s what the Word of God calls “birth pangs.”
If you’re a mom, you know what I mean when I say “birth pangs.” Initially, it feels a little uncomfortable – pressure in your back, maybe, that intensifies with every ticking minute. Before you know it, you have no control over anything; the contractions are hitting you like concentrated waves one right after another, right after another.
Our great country is in the throes of an intense and violent struggle. I dare say, we’re approaching the heights of our birth pangs. We’re on the verge of giving birth to something. I don’t know what. But, it doesn’t look good.
I believe all of this distraction is by design and not by coincidence. One of Satan’s many names is “Beelzebub” – the Lord of Flies. Meaning, he’s the Master Distracter. He comes into our space and one of his chief and most effective tool to get us off course is the tool of “distraction.”
We see you Ferguson, we see you Baltimore, we see you Prancing Ponies ( I mean Elites), we see you Hilary Clinton and your millions of dollars of unreported taxes, we see you Bruce Jenner, and so much more. All of which are equally important issues and we will get to them in their turn. In fact, we submit them all to Christ right now.
But today, my brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus, we must not allow ourselves to get emotionally bamboozled by all of these waves of distractions. Today, I call you to focus on the main issue. Nothing else matters more than what is taking place today in our country’s capitol. Tim Wildmon, President of American Family Association, said it best and succinctly.
“Today, April 28th, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments for and against redefining marriage in America. The very institution of God’s design for marriage as only between one man and one woman is on trial. As hard as it is to believe, nine people will decide if our nation will honor God and obey Him, or turn its back on the most fundamental building block of society and on God Himself. This will be the most important decision in the history of America. I’m urging you to do one thing…Pray.”
Please, PRAY!!!2 comments
