The past few nights I have been lying awake in bed for a long time just thinking about the day, the country, and the world. Last night, this verse came to mind. I was hesitant about posting because I never want to take scripture out of context, but at the same time, 2 Timothy 3:16 reminds us that “all scripture is God-breathed and useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness.”
For the country to change, the hearts of the people must first change.
HUMBLE YOURSELF- don’t think so highly of yourself, put the needs of others before yourself, put God’s will before your own.
PRAY- pray for this country, pray for change, pray for wisdom and understanding.
SEEK HIS FACE- seek what God would have you to do and how He would have you respond.
TURN FROM YOUR WICKED WAYS- once you have humbled yourself, prayed and sought after God, you then should know the parts of your heart that need change. Be that change! Show love toward others; take the steps you are called to take.
Healing comes from repentance. The greatest commandment is to love God and love your neighbor as yourself (Matthew 22:37-39). If that love is not evident in the way you treat others, then work needs to be done.
Maybe part of His plan in us “staying home” during this season was because it was time for a heart change. 🖤
