We Have Forsaken the Lord

Scripture 2 Chron 24:20 Then the Spirit of God came upon Zechariah the son of Jehoiada the priest, who stood above the people, and said to them, “Thus says God: ‘Why do you transgress the commandments of the LORD, so that you cannot prosper? Because you have forsaken the LORD, He also has forsaken you.’

Observation: America was founded by the word of God, but we have forsaken our Lord. This country has turned its back to God and has turned to sin, sexually immoral, denying God and trying to take Him and His word out of everything. I have no idea why God hasn’t forsaken us, why our enemies don’t destroy us, we have to admit we deserve it the way we have forsaken God in this country. Even many so called Christians have taken sides with this world instead of with God. I can’t believe that it will be too much longer before God decides enough is enough if we don’t turn from our evil ways.

Application: I need to be completely faithful to my Lord, which I’m not. What I look at, what I say or think must be honoring to my Lord. This precious time He has given me must be used for Him and not me. I need to do my part to help others see and receive our Lord. I’m here as a servant and I must serve my master and others in His name.

Prayer: My Lord forgive me for every time I turned my back on you and did what was displeasing to you. Help me be a better servant and please use me to fulfill the purpose you have created me for. Use my gifts and testimony for your glory.
