Don’t Throw Crumbs at GOD

A nation kneels, repents and prays.

I am stepping it up. I have been fasting and praying, and along with many others have spent hours in intense prayer and fasting . . . for our ailing country. For our beloved America. The land of the free . . . the home of the brave. A country crippled and wounded. Many ignorant of the depth of the injury. Others very aware and terrified at the possible end result.

The economic situation is bleak.  Experts say there is now no recovery. We don’t know what’s happening, for sure – but we know it’s bad.  Our embassies are being bombed, Christians/Americans captured, imprisoned, tortured … murdered, serious threats and statements are being made against us . . . and actions are being carried our. Something “crazy” is happening on our borders,

We have lost our “covering,” as we turned our back on Israel. And all this is only the tip of the ice burg.

As we watch the frightening events unfold all around us, like rows of dominoes falling, I can’t help but wonder how much of this is due to the fact we have forsaken our first love. Revelation 2: 4 “You have forsaken the love you had at first. Consider how far you have fallen! Repent and do the things you did at first. If you do not repent, I will come to you and remove your lamp stand from its place.”

Many of those of us who claim to love Him seem to be content to toss some crumbs to the Lord and “call it good.” Crumbs of time. Crumbs of effort. Crumbs of change from our dollar. It doesn’t seem we long to spend time with Him . . . to put out the effort to serve others or even spend the effort it takes to simply “be still and know that He is God.” Too busy, it seems, for quiet time alone with Him. Too hard to just stop and settle our minds into being in His presence, where we can actually hear His voice and discern whether it is Him speaking. We’re busy. We “want” to do X, Y or Z. We justify it . . . as God waits. Waits for us to seek Him. Waits for us to return to Him . . . our first love. We have long since forgotten what we did or did not do, why we did it and what it felt like. Like a husband who no longer courts or spends hours talking to his wife . . . now that they are married.

Within hours of the towers being hit in New York on 9/11 . . . our country rallied and turned and cried out to God. Our churches were once again full and God again was part of our daily conversations. Within weeks . . . we had once again become too busy . . . tired . . . apathetic. Our church pews again only 1/2 full. Our conversations returned to sports, kids activities, schedules, work and how to accomplish whatever pleasure, success, etc. it was we were on target to finalize.

We have slipped ever so slowly away from the arms of our first love and as we did, we became submerged into sins’ miry muck. The consequences and warnings continue as the moment in time creeps up on us, when He will finally say . . . “Enough!” That time is surely very close. And yet, our God, because of His infinite love and mercy, can be persuaded to spare us and heal our land. He, in fact, tells us what to do and that He will.

As we approach the election, we have a critical choice. Will we spend time NOW returning to our first love. Repenting. Fasting. Praying. Worshipping Him. Focusing on Him and our considering both our departure from Him and our return . . . AS IS the Biblical example. Perhaps it’s not too late to save our country from God’s response to our lukewarm, independent, arrogant attitudes and even downright participation in sin and smut. Perhaps if we take (really . . . is one day too much?) 24 hours and devote ourselves to seeking His face as a unified, nation of His people who are called by His name; to being with Him . . . to pursue Him the One we say we love, we (and the world) will see God turn His favor to us and heal our land. OR, we can spend time later, after the destruction, in much worse conditions wailing as we THEN cry out for Him to save us. We can choose to once again look away, claiming we are too busy, etc., as we have over the past years, while God yearned for us to seek Him; to stay close to Him.

The CHOICE is ours and it’s a simple one.

Now? Or Later . . . after  . . .  . (who knows what it will take)?

Please, Join us. We are calling prayer warriors to pray this in and will announce more soon. Begin to prepare your heart and mind now to set aside time soon for an “American style,” Solemn Assembly. Avoid your regular daily activities. Focus on God. Worship Him. Ask Him to reveal your own heart. Read the Bible. Repent. Fast (even if not a full fast . . . one or two meals today or avoid sweets or deserts or . . . Yes . . . a full fast). Pray. On your face before the Lord. Teach your children. Gather with friends, not for fun and food . . . but for accountability, confession, repentance. Ask God what He would have you do . . . just don’t . . . I BEG you . . . “throw crumbs,” what ever that means between you and God.

America is in grave danger.
