All that David was doing, in delegating the people, was centered around God.
Much different than our country and so many other places in the world. If I didn't know God was in total control, that He has my back, that I am in the Palm of His Hand, I would be afraid. Afraid of the consequences our country is facing, and going to face, because of the choices the leaders, elected by the people, are making.
Today is our Nichalas' 25th birthday and I wonder what this world will be like when he is my age.
I am honored, for most of their lives, they have allowed themselves to be His Vessels.
In the past six months, it is alarming how rapidly our country is spiraling downward. How quickly the forces of evil are making things which before have been tolerated, now openly approved of. How the sins of the world are becoming the normal and the ways of God have been "black listed".
History shows us that throughout time, a empire will kill itself from within, when ruled by sin.
As we are being ruled by sin.
The ones in charge become so overloaded with self power, they crush and destroy the ones who are under them. Sinners, who believe their way of life is the way for all, end up being killed by the very sins they are pushing to "become". They are pushing their rights, all the while stepping over and trampling ours.
Prayer in schools - out.
"In God we trust" becoming out on the money.
Ten Commandments displayed in a courthouse - out.
God's ways being taught in schools - out.
God's family order - a minority.
People upholding human life over animals.
Wars raging throughout the lands.
The cancer of sin is spreading throughout our world. It is not a silent killer anymore. It is blatant in rearing its ugly head, intent on destroying anything and anyone that walks in God.
The spiritual battle is plain to see - are you looking?
Are you taking a stand "in" Him? Are you putting on His Armor every day, ready to fight? Not only for the Army of God, but for those who are lost outside of Him.
This is why we are here - to go as we live and make Disciples. We each have different gifts and talents, are you using them for His glory? or are you standing back, silently watching evil unfold its dark wings?
To fight this cancer of sin, we need to be on regular duty to serve God according to our assignment.
