I have this overwhelming sense that things are only going to get worse, not better.
How then can I keep going forward in what seems like a destabilised nation? Here is the solution: a call to prayer!
Politics today in the UK
A nation destabilised is not a healthy nation at all… Unity is needed to bring stability to the UK. Back-biting, infighting, squabbling, self righteous indignation: these are the stumbling blocks of the only party with the experience and expertise to navigate this time in the nation when we are being overrun with lies, disputes, and hatred. The enemy looks to be winning. What shall we the people do?
We pray. We humble ourselves. We seek GOD’s face, because man is failing, failing badly. What have we done but bring this upon ourselves by ignoring the ways of our heritage, the truth in all its light and love: the Gospel of Jesus. We need You Lord, oh how we need You!
Barbarism: Around the world, led by California, New Zealand and soon Canada, babies can be aborted up to the day of their birth.
Hedonism: Self has become GOD as what we feel trumps reason, biology and moral decency.
Gluttony: We waste more in unfinished take aways than some nations have to eat.
Fear: Rules our decisions, opinions and choices, led by the politicians and — especially — the media.
Despair, Decay, Decadence….. Dig in!
Yes the world around us seems to be imploding upon itself. But we have a choice: we can give in the the hopelessness, or we can dig in and pray.
While “Hope deferred makes the heart sick” (Proverbs 13:12)
we also know that “if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” (2 Chronicles 7:14)
