In my job, I have had the privilege to meet many wonderful Christians. Unfortunately, I have noticed that many of them are extremely concerned about the downhill direction our nation, and overall, the world has gone. We seem to be living in an era where our entire sense of morality has reversed- an era in which what is evil is called good, and what is good is called evil.
While watching our world degrade, I myself often get devoured by the hopelessness of it all. This pessimistic mindset traps many Christians, who fall into the misconception that all is lost. However, the Word of God reminds us that we were born for such a time like this. God is not taken by surprise by today’s transpiring events. He is not devising a strategy with his archangels planning His next move- instead, He is in total and complete control.
Whether or not our nation will be saved and in doing so, remain a world leader, is not for us to decide. All we can do is remain faithful and complete the tasks the Lord sets before us. Be vigilant and pray without ceasing. But know this; God will fulfill His will whether or not we remain faithful.
Who say, “Let Him make speed, let Him hasten His work, that we may see it; And let the purpose of the Holy One of Israel draw near and come to pass, that we may know it!” Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes and clever in their own sight.” Isaiah 5:19-21
