I was thinking about everything going on in our nation. It is as if the devil is a puppeteer pulling strings and people are blinding reacting. Looting and riots are a long way from peaceful protest, how did we go so far in the wrong direction? I saw two women arrested for standing up for the lives of the unborn, while looters take over other cities. We’ve watched a pandemic spread across the world. We hear of earthquakes, and locus swarms destroying like we have never seen before. How can they not see the time in which we live? How can they not know these are the end days the Bible speaks of? Poppa, help me understand.
He spoke to my heart so clearly. They are spiritually blind. Their ears are stopped up. Pray for them daughter, pray. “But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know [them], because they are spiritually discerned.” 1 Corinthians 2:14 It grieved my heart to think of so many spiritually blind. If it grieved my heart, can you imagine how much more it grieves our Father’s heart? I’ve seen things from from “Christian” people that I know grieved the Holy Spirit. They were absolutely convinced they were right. There was a time I too would have jumped right in, but now I stop and pray and ask for the Holy Spirit to remove any blinders, unstop my ears, give me discernment. I don’t want to fall prey to the devil’s tricks again.
We have to put on the full armor of God daily, because the devil is seeking to destroy God’s army. He’s not trying to destroy the mass of people already following after him. He’s seeking to destroy the light that threatens to smother is darkness. I don’t know where you stand on any issue, but I encourage you to seek God daily, renew your mind daily, and if you don’t have the gift of the Holy Spirit, pray for it. Pray for your fellow brother and sisters, our nation, and our world. Pray for the lost and misguided, that they will see the light through the darkness and come to know Jesus before their time on earth ends. Just pray. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal
