    For I, Yahweh your God, will hold your right hand, saying to you, Don't be afraid; I will help you. Isaiah 41:13 WEBWe have a proverb we live by when performing live music: "If you hit a bad note, hit it good." Yes, it should be "hit it well," but that's the phrase I grew up hearing in South Carolin...

The Buck Stops Here

  • if my people, who are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14 WEB

    I have a Dilbert cartoon about tech support taped to our internet router because it reminded me of our service provider. Each time that we call them with a problem, they immediately say that it is our fault and then the problem is silently fixed.

    In the cartoon, the technician answers the support telephone and the first thing that he said to the customer calling was: 'Your problem is with another company's products or services.' Without hearing, knowing, or caring what the problem was. The customer said: 'But you haven't heard what the problem is yet.' To which Dilbert replied: 'Let's pretend that will make a difference.'

    As Christians, we often try to pass the buck onto the world or other groups, while we are the ones with the key. It is someone else's fault that we are in this situation, when actually we are trapped in a pit that we dug for ourselves. Many times we are reaping what we have sown.

    There is only one way out of the pit: That we turn to God, humble ourselves and pray. Then He promises that He will hear from heaven, turn, and heal our land. Whether we caused it or not, we have the answer.

    The answer is not politics or war, but seeking God. All through the Bible, God moved when His people got serious with Him. When they became lukewarm and backslidden, their nation fell apart.

    Can Christians prosper in a fallen world? Absolutely! If we all were to humble ourselves (fasting), repent, and pray, then God will turn and heal our nation.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I pray that You bring peace to our nation. Forgive us. Guide our leaders. Remove evil influences from our government. Fill our nation with Your presence and convict people of sin once again, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

I am in agreement with you pastor Dion, Father Yahweh is the answer for all problems and prayer's. Politics and war are just diversionary tactics used by the enemy satan to keep mankind confused and divided. He loves to keep the horse going after the carrot unbeknowest while one of his renegades are setting the wagon on fire.
