I heard someone comment that, “our country was going to hell in a hand basket!” I would like to say that everyone around me may do whatever they feel is necessary to get by and slide on down that slippery slope to hell because they don’t have the guts or the nerve to stand up and be counted but “as for me and my house I will serve the Lord” and if the whole country burns I will not turn around and look back as Lot’s wife did, I will move toward the place where God is leading me, a place where there will be peace in the valley.
Remember the martyrs from the Armenian Genocide and all the other suffering Christians that have lost their lives because of their beliefs, but the horrible thing is that it is still happening right now! But it seems that as long as it isn’t on our shores, we will not do anything about it! Will it take soldiers coming into your church and ordering you to give up your faith in Christ or be boarded inside that church with your fellow believers and become living sacrifices before you get upset about it?
So my friend, let everyone go to hell in that hand basket that wants to but as for me, I plan to pray that I can stay in the Land of Goshen during the plagues that are on our country and my little corner of the world will stay happy and at peace. If anything comes along to challenge my happiness, I will turn it over to God to handle, He’s a whole lot smarter than I am and knows exactly how to solve every situation!
“If you decide that it’s a bad thing to worship God, then choose a god you’d rather serve—and do it today. Choose one of the gods your ancestors worshiped from the country beyond The River, or one of the gods of the Amorites, on whose land you’re now living. As for me and my family, we will worship God.
To that scripture I add a resounding AMEN! What about you???
