Look to the Lord

#micah7 #iwaitforyoulord #itrustyoulord

And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.
Hebrews 10:24-25 (ESV)

            A lot of events happen in our modern world that cause Christian people to become disenchanted. Every day, the newspapers and the television news reports tell of tragedies that tend to cause believers to initially question the state of our world.

            Due to our humanity, we often wonder why these things occur. The vast majority of these events transpire because we, as a people, have turned away from God. We HAVE to return to God in order to see any positive change in our world and especially in our nation.
            We don’t allow Him in our schools. He can’t be in our government buildings. His name is usually never heard except when it’s disrespectfully used.

            In order to get out of this morass of evil –doings, we need to return to God. This means we begin to pray to Him for all our needs. We need to return to the daily practice of reading our Bibles.

            One way we can return to God is to participate in worship services. If your church has a time of testimony, stand and testify to what God has done for you lately. 

            Ask God to lead you to a ministry of your church that you may be able to work in. Maybe all you can do is donate to that ministry or even pray for it.

            Follow the scriptural guidance on tithing. I know of a friend who used to tithe her grocery money and the Lord blessed her many times over.
            When each of us goes to meet the Lord God, He will ask us one question,” What did you do about my Son, Jesus?” I believe His question can be broken down into some other ones. “Did you know Him?” “Did you live for Him?” “Were you His hands or feet?” How we answer that question will determine if we gain entrance into heaven to live with Jesus.



  1. Good post Cecelia, I just wrote a post on starting a prayer group... everyone can DO something!

    1. Marja: Thank you for your response. We all can pray and we all need prayer. Our world NEEDS prayer. I will pop over and read your post. I always benefit from them.

    2. 'Marja: Peace to you and yours.

  2. Pray, pray, pray for our nation. II Chronicles 7:14.

    1. Pam: You are so right. We HAVE to pray for our nation. God told Solomon that it was something HIS people were to do. Peace to you and yours.


I would be honored to hear what you think about this.
