After my initial reaction of disgust, sorrow, and fear on Thursday. I quickly realized I am powerless to do anything. My only vengeance on our wicked nation and the wicked decision is my obedience. 2 Corinthians 10:6 And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled. You wouldn’t think this is adequate revenge, and sometimes it’s not. However, there’s something about truly striving to be obedient in the midst of a perverse land.
I pray God withholds His judgment until He rescues the just out of the land (Lot in Sodom and Gomorrah anyone?). Ultimately, though, collectively we elected our leaders and will be held accountable for their deeds (like the whole of Egypt paying for Pharaoh’s evil decisions).
In the meantime, my fellow Believers, remain holy and set apart for the Lord. It can be lonely at times, you will be alienated from your friends and family. John 15:18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.
Right now, there is no king (Jesus Christ) in our land. Everyone does what is right in their own eyes. In our personal time of judges, when everyone else, Lost and “Christians” alike, are choosing to serve their made up version of God…be like Joshua. Joshua 24:15b … but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. Quietly and faithfully wait on God’s will to be fulfilled…Lamentations 3:26 It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD.
