HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY, AMERICA!!! Today is a day to celebrate! Celebrate what God ordained and put into place over 200 years ago. Celebrate our freedom to worship our Lord and Savior! It’s been a difficult couple of years. We all know that these are very crucial times. We all know a house divided will not stand and this country is so divided. The enemy is moving fast and furious bringing division in every area of our lives he can. The enemy KNOWS the power of unity more than we do! The devil only attacks what he knows is powerful and works towards the Lord. “Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it; Unless the Lord guards the city, The watchman keeps awake in vain.” Psalm 127:1
And if a house is divided against itself, that house cannot stand. Mark 3:25
How will I celebrate America’s independence? By standing and believing that Jesus is Lord! We can see this season has gone way past things such as: what do I believe about the virus, wearing a mask or the media deceptions. IT’S TIME LIKE NO OTHER FOR THOSE WHO BELIEVE TO SHINE FOR THE LORD! Those that don’t know Jesus as their Savior are going to find ways that make sense to them to fix this mess. Unbelievers cannot know the Truth until they know Him and if we aren’t shining for Him how will they see the Light? EVERY Believer has a purpose and call right now. EVERY ONE!! The calls will be different from one another, as they should be, because we have a world of unbelieving, hurting lost folks to reach. There is no much division, even amongst Believers. We’ve spent a year or more watching churches divide, fight, bicker, complain, manipulate, deceive and other things that shouldn’t be. It’s not about the virus!!! It never was and still isn’t! It’s about Believers keeping their focus on His face, His ways, His truths. You will not hear His truths, His ways and His love coming from most media. We need to spend the time we spend fussing over this whole mess finding His answers in His Word for this time in history. You don’t think He put the answers there? If you know Jesus, you know where to seek and find the Truth and the Truth you seek and find will set you free. “And you will know the Truth, and the Truth will set you free. So if the Son liberates you makes you free men, then you are really and unquestionably free.” John 8:32,36
“The wise woman builds her house on a foundation of godly precepts, and her household thrives, But the foolish one who lacks spiritual insight tears it down with her own hands by ignoring godly principles.” Proverbs 14:1
As the Body of Christ, we will each have a different role. Please, let’s pray for one another. We all need prayer and unity if the Body as we walk this untraveled road. We need to be there for one another to give each other a hand up and continue to walk together. Believers should be the ones walking arm in arm down the streets proclaiming His love and truth. We’ve been deceived, manipulated, lied long enough! Enough is enough! We can’t go back to be complacent now that some of the mandates have been lifted. The division is still there but not quite in our face as before. If we each listened to Lord from our hearts, focused on what He said and nothing else we would be able to continue to be a part of the 3rd Great Awakening. Believers it’s time to Rise and Shine and give God the Glory!!!.
My point is you are to be doing what God calls you to do, someone else will do their part and I will go where He is telling me. Each area will be different but we are going forward openly proclaiming His truths. This is what our country was founded on, freedom to go and be who God created you to be and sharing His love with others. This should be without any condemnation, back biting and division. God is love so let Him guide you in His love and peace. He has a place for each of us to go and shine for Him.
“But the one who always listens to me will live undisturbed in heavenly peace. Free from fear, confident and courageous, you will rest unafraid and sheltered from the storms of life.” Proverbs 1:33 Passion
I printed a copy of our Pledge of Allegiance to the United States Flag and its meaning. This is a powerful pledge and the enemy knows that! If we can hold fast to the truths of this declaration, we say together our country would not be divided. There are some in our country who will not stand for these God given rights but bow out in division. Let’s not be a part of the division but stand united in Him! Love you all and I pray for our church family and Believers around the world that we can stand strong in the Lord and in the power of His might! “Now my beloved ones, I have saved these most important truths for last: Be supernaturally infused with strength through your life-union with the Lord Jesus. Stand victorious with the force of his explosive power flowing in and through you.” Ephesians 6:10
