Receiving or Spurning God’s Promises
“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose,”Romans 8:28.
Fanciful, feel good words or God’s solemn promise? Truly that is for you to decide! For while our lips speak to the latter conclusion, our hearts often anticipate the former. We miss out on God’s blessing because we cannot imagine how our circumstance could possibly come together for good.
Believe me my friend, if you search your heart and say, “I don’t see how this promise could be fulfilled,” you are not alone! I have been there. I have spouted curses even as God was blessing my heart. I have missed out on His intended blessing because it did not come in it’s expected packaging.
So I propose, don’t just read these words, stop and ponder them. Declare from your heart,
“Lord, You say that You are working things for good and yet I cannot see! Show me, Father! Bring glory to Your name through my trust that I may, like Abraham, believe You with all of my heart and be declared RIGHTEOUS.”
America’s Self-made Financial Crisis
There is a financial crisis looming in the United States of America. According to experts, each year we are losing 2.5 TRILLION dollars as a result of it.
Because of this crisis, there are less teaching jobs and less need for manufacturers to produce goods. There are less homes to build, less cars to manufacture and less tax revenues to offset our massive national debt. The workforce is diminishing and there are less dollars going towards struggling programs like Social Security and Medicare. This crisis is growing to astronomical proportions and each year that it continues, the problem grows worse.
What is this massive problem that is affecting the finances of our nation?
The answer might surprise you. It is abortion. Since the passing of Roe v. Wade on January 22nd, 1973 there have been almost 60 million abortions.
Each human life that was aborted was never born in a hospital. They never used diapers or baby bottles. They never required clothes to wear or toys to play with. They never entered our schools. They never graduated. They never obtained productive jobs and they never paid taxes. They never bought homes. They never bought cars. They never started their own families.
They are not doing any of these things because they NEVER HAD A CHANCE.
Some of them would be in their 40s now and in the prime of their productivity. Yet they are not. They are the ghosts of what could have been.
Think abortion is just a moral crisis? Think again. Partly due to the generation which has never come to be, we are in a deficit. Research the facts for yourself. I did.
Don’t just read and like. Share! How can anyone hear your voice if you too are silent?
