The most severe drought in 50 years, and the hottest summer seemingly on record...and
no one in leadership has mentioned having a day of prayer for rain.
in other countries may not be interested, but all of us can remember times like these in our past.
God has a way of changing our priorities, doesn't He. We're in a down-to-the-wire
presidential election in November, and I've never in my lifetime been so concerned about our nation's future, but
if some kind of catastrophe would happen today in my family, it would immediately take precedence over any other thing in
the news or in my life. Caring about the national debt, jobs, drugs, and even concern about the drought would disappear.
It may be that this is exactly what God has in mind...to send a drought, to remind us of what is really important
in our lives. We should be thinking about the way the public in general seems to be turning away from God. As I've noted
at other times, the Bible, and even history books tell us how God's first chosen, the Jewish people, turned away from
Him time after time, and each time had to pay for their drifting away from Him.
day of prayer for rain? In the 17th chapter of First Kings in the Bible, there was a drought for three-and-a-half years. Then
the prophet Elijah prayed for it to be over, and it rained. What would happen to us if we had that long a time without rain.
We're in a time when untruths are not called "lies;" they're "misspoken."
Right and wrong are inverted, and while a person may go to jail for stealing a loaf of bread, others steal
millions of dollars from people's savings, and go scot free.
This will all
come out in the wash...the day of judgment by God. I'd advise you to get right with Him, if you haven't already. And
thank Him if you have.
