Our country that was founded on Christian principles lies on the fence of moral uncertainty. Our religious freedom in America has become more threatened than ever before. The media plays both sides of the campaign to their bias, depending on which network one chooses to follow. And social media rages with individual opinion and emotion.
All I have discovered in this age of fear, hatred, and moral decline is that our country and our world needs prayer more than ever!! The Lord is the ONLY one who can change hearts and heal the division our nation sits in! As believers- WE KNOW WHO WINS THE BATTLE IN THE END!! But unfortunately until then, we need to do OUR part in fighting this spiritual battle and get on our knees!! This is my prayer today as I seek peace in the uncertainty…..
The Lord is my light and my salvation-
Whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life-
Of whom shall I be afraid?
When evil men advance against me
To devour my flesh
When my enemies and my foes attack me
They will stumble and fall.
Though an army besiege me
My heart will not fear
Though war break out against me
Even then will I be confident.
One thing I ask of the Lord
This is what I seek;
That I may dwell in the house of the Lord
All the days of my life
To gaze upon the beauty of the Lord
And to seek him in his temple;
For in the day of trouble
He will keep me safe in his dwelling;
He will hide me in the shelter of his tabernacle
And set me high upon a rock
Then my head will be exalted above the enemies who surround me
At his tabernacle will I sacrifice with shouts of joy;
I will sing and make music to the Lord.
Hear my voice when I call, O Lord;
Be merciful to me and answer me.
My heart says of you, “Seek his face!”
Your face, Lord, I will seek.
Do not hide your face from me
Do not turn your servant away in anger;
You have been my helper.
Do not reject me nor forsake me,
O God my savior.
Though my father and mother forsake me,
The Lord will receive me.
Teach me your way O Lord;
Lead me in a straight path
Because of my oppressors
Do not turn me over to the desire of my foes,
For false witnesses rise up against me,
Breathing out violence.
I am still confident of this;
I will see the goodness of the Lord
In the land of the living.
Wait for the Lord;
Be strong and take heart
And wait for the Lord!
With Love- April
