REST FOR OUR SOULS AND A NATION! It seems we live in a nation of turmoil today whether it is in our personal lives or in the life of our nation. There seems to be people or groups of people who continually attempt to “keep the pot boiling” and attempting to keep unrest and ungodly change on the move in America. From “Drag Queens” appearing in public libraries to push their agendas to ungodly “sex education” in public primary schools the Satanic attacks on our children continue. One of the biggest attacks on American society today is led by liberal politicians seeking to push their agendas to destroy the foundations of our society and replace the foundations with socialistic principles including their attempts to drown out the voice of Christians. The “news media” today no longer reports news. For the most part they attempt to make news, distort news, cause controversy, and push forward their own liberal agenda. They call “good evil” and “evil good.” White males are an endangered species while “trans-genders” appear to be in popular demand, at least in some circles. If the world expects white males to roll over and accept their proposed demise and vacant their God-given places of fatherhood and leadership in marital relationships, the world is in for more years of unrest. I should let you know I am a white male and delighted that God has placed me in the world in that capacity for a while. God’s plan for my life is much better than any plan that a socialist person of either sex (male or female) could devise.
In the bible book of Jeremiah we read, “This is what the Lord says: ‘Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls,’” (Jeremiah 6:16 NIV). We are at the crossroads in America today. Many want to remove the ancient paths of our country; actually they want to remove any reminders of the past including any textbooks or monuments. But God says that we should seek the good way which would be the way that God has led us before; in other words we are to follow God’s principles and guidelines not just the latest deceptions brought on by Satan himself. Today people and many leaders in society are attempting to deceive society as a whole and lead us down a “different path.” That path will not lead to rest for our souls or the nation. In the bible book of Micah we read, “He has showed you, O man, what is good, And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God,” (Micah 6:8 NIV). Rest for our souls and for our nation will come when we begin once again to follow the ancient paths of loving God and following His principles for our life and our nation. I must admit I don’t see a lot of righteous living, true justice, mercy, and humility among those with the loudest voices today. As for Christians let us follow this advice, “Be careful that you do not forget the Lord your God, failing to observe His commands, His laws, and His decrees,” (Deuteronomy 8:11 NIV). By doing this we will have God’s rest even if we live in an unrestful nation.
