Believers at their wits end……
Psalm 107:27 reads “They reeled and staggered like a drunken man, and were at their wits end; then they cried to the Lord in their trouble and he brought them out of their distresses (28).”
Clearly today in America, believers are at their wits end seeing all that is transpiring in this once great nation. Revelations and scandals are so far beyond anything we have ever witnessed. They are coming so fast and frequent that people begin to just go numb and begin to shut down. All through the bible and especially in Daniel, the strategy of the devil is to try to wear out the saints and believers. This has been an effective strategy throughout history, but now is not the time to give up or shut down. Our basic liberties are in very serious jeopardy.
The revelation NSA has the capacity to monitor and store all phone calls, emails, text messages, social network post and virtually all communications in America is so shocking, it’s actually hard to believe our own government would move in a totalitarian direction. No matter how noble they claim their intentions are; there is a tremendous growing mountain of evidence to the contrary. The IRS scandal using their fearful name and department to harass and silence the political opposition of the Obama administration is a thousand times worse than the Watergate scandal of the Nixon years, yet the cover-up and far left media continue to deny and lie and use false reporting to cover-up the cover-up. Evidence is surfacing that the DOJ, EPA and other agencies were also used for the same purpose.
The current Administration has also illegally seized the communications of journalists who were probing leads on corrupt or illegal activities of this Administration. The cover-up of all the lies about Benghazi makes it clear that something extremely important is being hidden from the American people. Even many in the Democratic Party are finally waking up and realize their future is in jeopardy by what is unfolding with all the scandals. The lack of a standard foreign policy that is transparent and continuous non-decisions by Obama and his administration is mind blowing. Focusing on gun control while scandals rage and lies continue to cover-up. By far the weakest president in American History is by-passing the constitution to do an end run around congress when he doesn’t get his way. The evil in high places taking place is unimaginable.
Regardless of personal consequences, we need to seek the truth and without compromise. This Federal overreach is unprecedented and states are somewhat to blame for giving up their rights under the Constitution to the Federal Government. Perhaps the most important leadership must come from the state level, especially Governors and State Attorney Generals. These could be the most important positions in the unfolding battle for our freedom. Believers need to blog, write, and use social media to defend the Constitution and wake up Americans. To get engaged is to go to town hall meetings, write or email you elected officials often and have some courage in your heart.
We know we must live by faith and not by fear. When the odds seem impossible, that is when the greatest miracles have taken place. What happen when they were at their wits end? They cried out to the Lord in their trouble and He saved them out of their distresses. The moral is approaching rock bottom in America and the morals have declined almost to the point of no return, but there are believers still who love God and know Jesus as their Savior and Lord. God will not forsake us as individuals, and the gates of hell will not overcome the church of believers upon the earth no matter what it looks like in the natural. Pray for this nation; pray for our leaders so that there may be peace in our lives and the lives of our children and grand children. And don’t forget to pray for the peace of Jerusalem……..
