Two weeks ago, when the social and political unrest begin to fester due to protestors wanting to reopen, God pointed me to Luke 2:14 and I started praying for peace on earth.
One week ago, God told me to pray for “My People” according to Hosea 2:19-23 (Hosea’s Prophecy) and Romans 9:25-26 (Fulfillment of Hosea’s Prophecy) that His People will return to Him and, desiring to do His Will and not be ensnared by what they see in the world.
At the time, those prayers seemed like great prayers but now I see that those were PERFECT prayers. I had no foresight to know what was coming upon the world but my spirit did.
I, like many others have experienced hurt and sadness for the current state of the world. When Jesus Christ was born, the Angels declared “Peace on Earth” and that the “Prince of Peace” has come. And since, Jesus continues to live and walk the earth in spirit (through you and me), an ample supply of peace is still available on earth. However, peace does not come haphazardly, it comes intentionally via prayer. If we want peace on earth, we must seize it in the spirit and by faith, manifest it into the physical realm.
Let us not become consumed with what is “right and wrong”, “good people and bad people”, “black and white”, “democrat and republican”, “rich & poor”, but solely devoted to what is holy and pleasing to God. Satan brings destruction and uses labels to incite division in the world as tools of Let us not become consumed with what is “right and wrong”, “good people and bad people”, “black and white”, “democrat and republican”, “rich & poor”, but solely devoted to what is holy and pleasing to God. Satan brings destruction and uses labels to incite division in the world as tools of a distraction and dejection. For when God looks upon the earth, He sees us, His Children, not our demographics, who were all created in His Image, despite our shortcomings and He desires for all of us to live in peace. This is not to belittle the existence of inequality and discrimination but to exalt a higher agenda, God’s Will. The only One who can and WILL make the crooked, straight and do so in perfect peace!
Until Midweek Musings,
