Everywhere you go conservative people talk about how if we get a certain guy in office, or kick out the liberals we can take back America but none of that is going to help unless we change ourselves. Revival in America is not going to happen until we take a good look at ourselves and see our need for God.
Our country will NEVER change unless we change. Unless the church wakes up and starts standing for the truth. It does not matter what the Supreme Court says is right. They are mere men and women. Just 154+ years ago the Supreme Court was saying slavery was okay. They are not God. They do not conduct what is absolute truth. God does and He tells us what is right and wrong through the Bible.
If we think we can change others before taking a good look at ourselves we will get no where. We have to take the log out of our eye before we can take the speck out of our brothers. (Matthew 7:3-5) We have to be willing to repent of our own sins. We have to be willing to stand out. We have to be willing to be bold. We have to stand for the absolute truth that God has given us through His word. God have given is a spirit of boldness.
Have I not commend you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened or dismayed for the Lord your God is with you always.Joshua 1:9
For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.2 Timothy 1:7
America will not change unless the church wakes up and get’s their act back together. Our country is going to stay the same unless we allow God to do the revival in our hearts. Only then can our country change. People will see a difference in our lives if we let God do His work. People will start wanting what we have but right now the world see us as hypocrites. They will see our joy, they will see our light. They will see the light of Christ in us if we are willing to allow God to do a work in us. If we are willing to take a stand.
Does this mean everyone will change? No, but I sure as heck believe that God will do a marvelous work if we allow Him.
If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.2 Chronicles 7:14
As my pastor put it, we are in a post-Christian era. I believe that this is because the church has gone silent. We aren’t fighting society anymore instead we are accept what they say. We accept what they deem “truth” or “normal”. The churches in America have only been reading the parts of the Bible that make them happy and comfortable. They don’t read things that they don’t “believe” in. It breaks my heart to see so many churches going with society and falling away from God.
So will you surrender your life to God and let Him do a work in you? Will you allow Him to place a revival in your heart that will Lord-willing spread through our whole country? Could you imagine how amazing it would be if our nation became a nation under God again? Are you willing to be that one person who gets over their pride and come humbly to Christ?
Will you join me striving to be more Christ like? Will you strive with me to have God change our lives for the best? Will you strive with me to allow God to start a revival in us?
There is no man on earth who can change a nation, but there is a God in heaven who can.
