Entrusting our lives to Jesus means NOT trusting our own judgement. Our natural inclinations are toward evil. Consult Him!
1 A man who remains stiff-necked after many rebukes will suddenly be destroyed—without remedy. Pr 29:1
We would be better off to assume that our observations of people, events, and circumstances are skewed, or, at least, incomplete. We NEVER know the whole story, so why do we insist on passing judgement? Instead, let’s ask the LORD for discernment, and then for our next step.
I am grieved over the decision that New York has made concerning abortion. I pray that the Supreme Court will overturn their decision. At the same time, instead of saying, “God will judge New York, so look for some kind of disaster,” I pray for the righteous in that state to rise up and reach as many moms and dads as will respond to their offers to help. I believe God receives those babies straight to Him; my concern is the parents. To save all three is ideal, but as with us, they have free will. We all deal with the consequences of our bad choices. That’s where we come in!
Let’s pray for everyone involved that the LORD would reach many in spite of this new law. We have plenty with which to deal here in our own state(s). Maybe He will use us to reach someone who needs His touch today!
11 Rescue those being led away to death; hold back those staggering toward slaughter. 12 If you say, “But we knew nothing about this,” does not he who weighs the heart perceive it?
Does not he who guards your life know it? Will he not repay each person according to what he has done [obedience or disobedience]? Pr 24:11-12
