Today’s slice of the Bread of Life, the Word of God, comes from 2 Chronicles 7:14:
Then if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and heal their land.
At one time America was free. People were open and honest. They didn’t try to get even. We were not fearful and didn’t have to lock ourselves up in our homes. Christians were trained and exhorted to be holy and followed the Bible. America was blessed. It was naïve to the ways of the World.
The spirit of the anti-Christ has found a foothold in America, and we became complacent. Forgetting our spiritual roots, we have lost our zeal for the presence of our creator. We have lost our direction, and become more like the “world of the anti-Christ.”
The only way back into God’s purpose is repentance. As our slice of the bread of life says “…then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
The choice is ours. We may continue to be deceived, controlled and with no freedom. OR…ask God for forgiveness, change our ways into His purpose. Remember, our life is meant to glorify God. We may again be the world as it should be.
My friends, this could be the best year of our lives. It will also likely be the most challenging. It’s not either/or, but both. Many ultimate issues will be determined this year. They can be determined in a way that gets us back on the path of greater peace, stability, and prosperity. They could also be determined in a way that leads to the worst economic and political meltdown in history.
Studies have shown that even the most profound worldwide changes can be brought about by less than one percent of the population. This means that just a few hundred people can radically change the culture of millions. Those prepared will dictate the direction.
Faith is also the conviction that as much of a mess as we have been, the price that He paid for our sins is enough, we have full acceptance with the Father, and we can come boldly before His throne at any time, whether we’ve had a good day or bad one – because we’re family. We come on the basis of what He did, not what we have done. This year we must grow in the faith that gives us access to the authority of His throne…
