Are you praying for your town (or city?)

l town

 
What if one person prayed in every single town? Do you think it would make a difference? I believe it would. Genesis 18 says God agreed to save Sodom and Gomorrah over 10 righteous men (see below) WOW.
 
Remember Miss America Pageants? “I want world peace” they often say. Where does world peace begin? IN YOUR House and IN YOUR TOWN. You can’t beleive for something you have not achieved yet in your own household. Amen?
 
I’ve been praying for my town for quite some time now. IN fact, ever since I arrived here when I hear of issues here I pray about it. The school, the church, the local library..Post office…..
 
I’ve trained myself that when I hear of a problem (in my surrounding area) I go to God in prayer and petition him to help, to fix it, and make declarations of faith over the situation.
This keeps me busy! After that there is church, my famiy….Friends, loved ones….And yes of course, the Nation! I”ve seen many answers to prayer already! (many!!) even down to “help them find a good librarian and town Clerk!” When I lived in another town (Pictured below) I prayed for that town (daily) for years!
“Father I ask in every town in this nation, every government entity, every place there is Father, Raise up People to pray for their towns (and cities). Help them believe they make a difference too! IN Jesus’ name! I thank you that you hear the prayers of those crying out secretlly to you Father Help us to take heart and be encouraged that “People are praying”
IN Jesus’ name! amen!
 
Genesis 18:16-33 Abraham pleads for Sodom:
 
“31 And he said, “Indeed now, I have taken it upon myself to speak to the Lord: Suppose twenty should be found there?”
 
So He said, “I will not destroy it for the sake of twenty.”
 
32 Then he said, “Let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak but once more: Suppose ten should be found there?”
 
And He said, “I will not destroy it for the sake of ten.” 33 So the Lord went His way as soon as He had finished speaking with Abraham; and Abraham returned to his place” NKJV                    -Laura Grace, Author, Grace to the Rescue, Grace to Soar

Miracles and Justice obstructers who quibble over details……

funny-protest-signs-15.pngThere’s an old saying, “lead me, follow me, or get out of my way!”

Here lately, I have been noticing again, people’s propensity toward arguing.

Jesus dealt with it too, just in a different way ….

Father God summed it up for me one day in my Study time with him when he said, “My way is not to argue and fuss over how to do something, or pick apart how people do it.”

The Pharisees were always so worried about details. Quibbling about it. “Is he supposed to be healed on Sunday?” “Is that really godly?” People feel very free to just dive in, and it’s their God given duty to tell us WHAT we should believe in. Many of them, the very same people who defend their own freedom of speech, pounce on others, telling them how wrong they are! It’s amazing! This to them apparently, is helpful somehow?

“Did you know your socks don’t match?” (Helpful hint for today?) Maybe I only have two socks, and these are it!

There are justice obstructers out there, and they quibble over details, all the time.

THEY STOP THE RIVER OF LIFE, from flowing!

These are the sorts Jesus got upset at. I never once saw or heard of him saying “come on boys, I heard someone down the street is about to commit a sin. “Let’s go stop them!” never heard him say there should be a law against this, Never once heard of him saying, “Hey, you are not in church today, YOU SLACKER!” …………

I have never heard of the ministry of arguing (from Him), jumping on people’s cases, or like Doc Lynch recently said on his face book page “getting wrapped around the Axel” over things people say. Think about that one! If someone is aruging and fussing over what we say, instead of listening, or trying to discover maybe why we said it, all they do is stop the vehicle from moving forward. So back to what I said, Lead me, Follow me, Or get out of the way! I’m willing to explain why I believe what I believe, in a peaceful discussion over it!

Anyone who is not this way, who has to holler over the top of you, rant and rave, freak out, call you names, or any of this kind of stuff, is definally NOT a person I want to follow.

I want someone who leads me to Peace, into Righteousness, into Love, and into a deeper understanding of my Heavenly Father.

#2 Contraceptives Were illegal? A man of God AVOIDS EXTREMES!! Word of Wisdom……for you and I.

a beautiful light house.jpgI was watching a show last night (documentary) and learned that for a long time, contraceptives were illegal, in the United States of America. I was watching in dismay, as I heard how this man tried to pass out contraceptives, and was arrested, even put in jail over it!

Many Christians believed (back then) it should be illegal, and were putting sure they were in God’s will to put up such a fight.  This was Extreme. (see the passage, Ecc 7:8)

AS God still says, a man who fears God, avoids all extremes. Now, you can ignore it, cast this wisdom off from you, but it’s Still a Word of God’s Wisdom, for us today.

What happened was, ONE MAN in a position of leadership, with great confidence in his beliefs, stood up and talked about why contraceptives should be illegal. He reasoned that Women could become promiscuous, or that they were not doing the will of God, and for a long time, many were on his side.

Women, through the years, have been made slaves by many, victims of abuse, untold suffering, and denied the freedom in Christ (to choose) and not so much today, but at one time, yes, they were denied much freedom.

We were designed to serve, love, nurture, but then again, so were men! Before the fall of Adam, men had all the attributes of God in their lives. God never intended for men to be brutal taskmasters, toward anyone! The next time you are thinking God is into your rally, just remember, what is justice to one, may be unjust towards another……..

NONE OF US Understands the full spectrum or scope of JUSTICE in it’s purest form, without seeing through the eyes of God the Father and Jesus, his son.

this is a word of Wisdom, for you and for me. Stop and consider, before you jump on the bandwagon for what you consider to be Justice. Amen.
