SATURDAY, JANUARY 2
Scripture: Matthew 5:13
If we’ve been paying attention to the trajectory that America is on, we know that we are in trouble. A land that fills with iniquity can reach a tipping point and it feels as though North America is filling rapidly to the brim. God is gracious and merciful, and if we as a nation humble ourselves, pray, and turn from our wicked ways, God will hear from heaven and will forgive us and heal our land. A number of saints have been vigilantly crying out in prayers of repentance for years. Many Christians in the younger generations are growing jaded, having heard of the wonder of past revivals, yet are clouded with pessimism and hopelessness due to daily diets of darkness through the media, peers and beyond. Our assignment is to keep praying for that move of the Spirit to happen… but also to fight for the next generation with every ounce of our strength. Many of us have spent the last forty or more years trying to fight the good fight and keep the faith, but now we are approaching that age where we have fewer days in front of us than behind us, and we wonder just what kind of world we are leaving to the next generation. What kind of church, or society will our younger ones inherit? We must do our best to ensure that they inherit a solid foundation built on the Word of God, from which they can plan and structure their lives of faith. Let God arise and His enemies be scattered!
