Many have asked in response to Fay Lamb’s article this morning, “What can I do about all this?” My list is not all inclusive. I’d like to hear from you all as you think about what Mr. and Mrs. America can do. Here are a few of my ideas. Let me hear from those of you who’d like to join this conversation. Let me be clear, if you’re a socialist or left leaning liberal, this conversation is not for you. I’m not here to argue political POV’s. We are far beyond that; many just don’t realize or haven’t come to grips with the state of today’s peril. So, what can you do?

WHAT CAN “WE THE PEOPLE” DO?

“We the People” can stop feeding the false news coverage. Turn them off! “We the People” can refuse to believe and respond to every rumor that scrolls across the top of our FB news page. “We the People” can become active in conversations we have with our representatives and senators, state and federal…letting them know how we feel about issues, needs, and their votes. Let them know you are watching them. “We the People” can read and educate ourselves about the candidates up for election and re-election…their position, their beliefs…or the lack thereof…and vote for candidates that love this country, not those who desire to trash the Constitution, our God, and your freedom. “We the People” can think.

“We the People” must confront outright lies on our social media, in conversations, and be careful to always speak the truth of God…even in our comments to the smallest post…being careful to remind one another we serve a righteous and loving God who is not willing for any to perish, but understanding some will…those who refuse to believe in and trust what Jesus did at Calvary was enough. “We the People” are to have the presence of our God around us and our words…and not be afraid to speak His name even when those we are talking to will be irked. “We the People” should not shun a conversation…a reasonably kind conversation…about the Sovereignty of God…about the truth that abortion is murder and homosexuality is a perversion and abomination to God and to us. “We the People” must limit our TV, movie going, and reading material, only watching and reading what is pleasing to God and let it be known to your kids (even the grown ones) what you approve and don’t approve. “We the People” should write a personal letter to our President, telling him thank you, letting him know you are praying for he and his family. A letter in your own handwriting expressing your appreciation for his sacrifice. And while you’re at it, if you have congress people who are backing the President, standing for your values, and standing for the Constitution, write them too.

When Sorry's Not Enough

“We the People” must take responsibility and repent before God for the pitiful public school systems that have allowed the enemies of this nation to slip in unnoticed and steal the hearts and minds of our children while we were too busy to monitor the text book lies our children have been fed for the past two generations.

Does all of this take courage? Yes. Will it cause people to shove you away? Probably. Especially if they are in opposition to God or just plain cowards. And we all know what Revelation has to say about cowards. God promises when we acknowledge our weakness and depend on Him, He will make us strong. His instructions to us are “…to stand firm and occupy ’til He comes.” My son is a warrior, a fighter pilot. My son-in-law is a soldier. I’ve seen and know these young soldiers…all warriors; I know what it means to stand firm and occupy. Occupying your little corner of the world doesn’t allow timidity, silence, or fence sitting when seeing things you know are wrong and in opposition to the laws of our Constitution and to our Lord Jesus Christ. But most of all, we must get truly serious about our own prayer life with our Father in Heaven. Up ‘til this point in time, most folks fall into bed at night, weary from the day, mumbling a few “I want, I need…” to God before drifting off to sleep. Could this be part of the reason we are where we are today? That and a lack of time in the Word? An hour on Sunday morning won’t furnish enough of the Word to carry even one of us through the day, much less the week. We are spiritually malnourished.

We are not to be spectators…we are to be involved in the world around us…else we are part of the problem. The blunt truth is the current state of affairs in our nation and in the world today have reached the point that unless the Sovereign God of the Universe and His Son The Lord Jesus Christ come quickly to our aid, (and that will only be in response to the prayers of His people or His preordained plan for the ages)the likelihood of a return to what we’ve called normal is at best unlikely.

But know this…God hears and answers the prayers of His people…most often, not in the way we expect. THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY IS OUR ONLY ANSWER. “Call upon Him while He is near.”

“If I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or if I command the locust to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among My people, and My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray, and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin, and will heal their land” (2 Chronicles 7:13-14 NAS).
