Two Sides of the Coin
Now Think On This
“Therefore consider the goodness and severity of God: on those who fell, severity; but toward you, goodness, if you continue in His goodness. Otherwise you also will be cut off.” (Romans 11:22, NASU)
For many Americans (well at least 50 % of them) the 2016 elections gave hope that the grace of God would once again direct our steps, in giving this nation another opportunity to look to Him for the road we must follow.
With the election of Donald Trump and other conservative leadership, the future of this country will hopefully take the dramatic turn needed to be on the right road, the opposite of that one which by natural decisions we had taken the wrong way, through the establishment of immoral and ungodly laws.
Believers can once again see the glimmer of light coming.
One could sense the relief, if not outright rejoicing, that those who had loudly proclaimed their ways of death would not be given the chance to further erode His established ways, through governmental and judicial transformation. Once again the Lord has stopped the enemy’s hidden, ongoing agenda, which would further bring down America and continue to remove the protective walls that had brought us to that place of being a light upon a hill.
There always seems to be two sides of the coin when considering a choice to be made. The goodness of the Lord can give us further opportunity to get back on the right path. But we must be aware that He is also a just God, and if we do not, by His grace, stop the destructive ways that have become most prevalent in our society, we will experience His severity.
A society cannot long disregard the laws of the living God and expect to live without the due consequences. As outlined in Deuteronomy, proclaimed first to the Israelites, the same holds true for any people called to follow after Him.
“I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. So choose life in order that you may live, you and your descendants, by loving the Lord your God, by obeying His voice, and by holding fast to Him; for this is your life and the length of your days, that you may live in the land which the Lord swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give them.” (Deuteronomy 30:19-20, NASU)
While we gratefully acknowledge this newly given opportunity to see restoration of just and righteous laws once again in our land, we must not expect that we can sit back and just let our governmental leaders do it. As the people of God, we must stand strong in prayer, petition, and ongoing proclamation for His kingdom to come, His will to be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
This is the mandate we have been given. By His love and grace flowing through us, life will overcome death, and true freedom will be experienced under the shadow of His outstretched wings.
If we fail to seek Him in these years ahead, and acknowledge Him in all our His ways, we will lose sight of the chosen path set before us, resulting in further destruction and evil coming upon the people of this land.
We must keep our eyes fixed on Him, our only hope and glory.
