Thought for Today – A Ministry of John Palatucci

Good morning,
 
Thought for today (somewhat of a soapbox)
 
“Then you will call, and the Lord will answer; You will cry, and He will say, ‘Here I am.’ If you remove the yoke from your midst, The pointing of the finger, and speaking wickedness, And if you give yourself to the hungry, And satisfy the desire of the afflicted, Then your light will rise in darkness, And your gloom will become like midday. And the Lord will continually guide you, And satisfy your desire in scorched places, And give strength to your bones; And you will be like a watered garden, And like a spring of water whose waters do not fail. (Isaiah. 58:9-11). There are often calls to rebuild in times of destruction and tragedy. When such destruction comes as a result of efforts by evil men, there is also justified anger that accompanies the sorrow and resolve. But without dependence upon God, a nation who pledges to rebuild after disaster is rather arrogant. In recent years, some of the very source of our national strength has been sapped by unrighteous government leaders. In a nation where the prime time media constantly belittles moral and spiritual principles found in the Scriptures of God, the very foundation has been undermined. God cannot and will not be mocked. As Thomas Jefferson once asked, “Do we think that His righteousness will sleep forever?” He felt far too little attention was being paid by our nation’s leadership to the justness of God. For repairing injured bodies, physicians, nurses and medical know-how are needed. For repairing ruined buildings, contractors, steelworkers and engineers are needed. For protecting freedom, military and civil law enforcement personnel are needed. For good and righteous civil laws, there is need for good and righteous civil lawmakers and judges. Our nation certainly needs all these things.  Just as a doctor needs to be committed to his work in healing the injured, the Christian needs to be dedicated to his or her faith in order to be useful in his or her field.
 
Lord, thank You for the wisdom and even conviction in Your Word. Help me to be more dedicated in my Christian walk, and my commitment to You. I do pray for this nation’s leaders and it’s government officials, that there would be more righteous and committed Christians involved. We are quickly going down the tubes because of the moral decay and rampant greed. Have mercy on this nation in these last days, in Jesus name,
 
Blessings in Christ
 
 
“Now to Him that is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we
ask or imagine, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory
forever and ever. AMEN”  Ephesians 3:20
