What Now?

 


I've been absent here for quite some time. To be honest I haven't had the heart to share, and I wasn't sure what to say. Today I feel the Lord is prompting me to speak.

Our country has been through a tumultuous year. We've faced some truly terrifying and painful circumstances. There have been bitter words exchanged, lies told, and half truths shared in hopes of confusing people. Now it's time we set out anew in search of a better path, God's path.

If you know me well you understand that today's inauguration of Joe Biden was painful for me. I am one of millions who believe the election was fraudulent. Even so, those of us who had hoped to unearth the truth need to move forward, not an easy task. Many of us had hoped there would be accountability for the wrong done to our country. We prayed for God's intervention and protection. Now it seems out prayers have gone unanswered. But that can't be true. To believe that is to disbelieve God's Word. God always answers our prayers, though oftentimes not the way we might have hoped. He can say, "Yes. No Or wait."

God knows the best outcome and the best time. He knows the whole picture, the beginning and the end. We need to trust Him.

So...what do we do now? 

First we seek God with our whole heart and mind. We do as God commands. We share the good news of the gospel with the world and we make disciples, which is a command. Beyond that we have individual talents and spiritual gifts given by God for His good work. We each have something good to contribute to our world. 

We need to be the best we can be in our little or big space in this world. We need to reach out to others, helping wherever we are called. We are to love one another, pray for one another. 

I've heard terrible reports coming out about the press and vicious leftists who want all Trump followers to pay terrible consequences for their loyalty to him. If we return their hatred with our own it will only create a violent vicious storm. 

  • We can continue to speak truth, but without hateful or violent intent.
  • We need to spend of time with God - pray, read scripture, worship, spend time with other believers. God will uplift us.
  • Seek out honest and trustworthy news sources. It takes creativity and requires tracking down leads, but there are some good news sources we can trust.
  • We should do all we can to serve in our communities at all levels, including our local governments. 

The days to come will be challenging, possibly even frightening, but God did not give us a spirit of fear. He will stand with us, giving us strength to face whatever is coming.

Trust Him. He loves you. He wants to bless you with His presence and His peace.


Grace and peace to you from God.

Bonnie

  3. I keep going back to what I heard from God a few months ago:
    "I am the victor.
    "I know exactly what’s happening.
    "I see more clearly than You do.
    "In fact, I’m directing the fight. In fact, I’ve already won it.
    "Rest in Me. Trust Me.
    "Know I am working all things for your good and My glory.
    "I will be glorified.
    "I will be victorious.
    "I AM God."

  4. Hi Bonnie - God is not bound by our timelines (electoral college, inauguration, etc.). This is a spiritual battle of epic proportions. Remember how the angel told Daniel he was sent from God on the first day Daniel prayed? It took three weeks for him to fight through the evil resistance. When the Israelites reached the Red Sea with the Egyptians bearing down on them, it looked hopeless. But God... God is indeed answering our prayers. He's digging deep and exposing corruption. I've said from almost the beginning that when all of our human solutions failed, God would step in and everyone would know it. I'm standing on Mark 11:22 - Have faith in God. You might want to tune in to the Victory Channel - Flashpoint, America Stands, and Victory Update for news in the spirit of faith. Check online for times/dates. They have been a great encouragement to me.

  5. Hi Bonnie, It's good to hear from you! Your blog is spot on! I've always said, even in Presidential elections years ago, that no matter who is President, God is still King and He is still on His throne!

  7. Very well stated dear Bonnie! Are you praying specifically for Joe 'n Jill Biden? Well, they are in authority, so we must! Many, many, many lives and hearts have been changed because a gramma prayed for them. And perhaps they are born for a time such as this, and we are here for a time such as this--to pray for them. So, onward 'n upward with a smile on your face and real joy in your heart. It is a totally snowy winter wonderland around here. Rand's already had to shovel both front and back today. I stay warm 'n cozy in my robe and wave and love him from the window!

    1. Prayers - most definitely. I pray for our leaders. I pray for truth. I pray for wisdom. I pray for justice and mercy. I pray for God's will.
