Divine Order Will be Established

This is definitely not a traditional New Year. The majority of us are entering the year with wounds, pains, and worries from last year. The devastation does not simply go away because it’s a new year but I believe the Father is a restorer. He will rejuvenate and refresh the weary and the faint, the brokenhearted and the down-trodden. I believe the Lord brings order out of chaos.

Sometimes, life has to get really bad before people change their ways. We ignore the signs of a slight pain in our chest or put off errands that should be priority. We often learn the hard way and take the hard road before we commit to change.

I recently decided to clear out my bedroom closet. As I took out all my clothes and miscellaneous items stored in the closet, my bedroom became a complete mess. I had things all over my bed and my floor was covered with items that I could not fit on top of the bed. With slight regret, I felt overwhelmed and wondered why I started this project in the first place.

After taking endless hours to re-organize and place the items in a designated place I felt a sense of peace and accomplishment.

As we watch the mess unravel in Washington the past couple of years, the dirt and grime of our political system was necessary to be exposed. It was never really a secret but it has definitely shined a light on the dysfunction, corruption, deception, and disgrace of American greed, power and arrogance.

The Lord is establishing order in the midst of the chaos, injustice and corruption. HE is purging the evil doers of a Babylonian system who is without honor of divine leadership. [Please note: The Babylonian system consists of both Democratic and Republican parties]. Just to clarify, both sides include corruption and deception. The demonic strongholds will be broken.

Nobody can withstand the mighty hand of the power of God. His ways are glorious and will smite the head of kingdoms of the earth. His laws and commandments will be established on the earth as it is in Heaven. The Body of Christ is the royal priesthood that will be established in the last days. They shall lead with power, wisdom and discernment. The Lord is establishing divine order through his children.

Not by might, nor by Power but by His spirit, says the Lord. Zech 4:6

Prepare ye the way of the Lord. Stand still and see the salvation of the Lord.

Isaiah 2:2-4

And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the Lord’s house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it.

And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.

And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.

Then say thou, Thus saith the Lord God, The city sheddeth blood in the midst of it, that her time may come, and maketh idols against herself to defile herself.

Thou art become guilty in thy blood that thou hast shed; and hast defiled thyself in thine idols which thou hast made; and thou hast caused thy days to draw near, and art come even unto thy years: therefore have I made thee a reproach unto the heathen, and a mocking to all countries.

Ezk 22:12-13

In thee have they taken gifts to shed blood; thou hast taken usury and increase, and thou hast greedily gained of thy neighbours by extortion, and hast forgotten me, saith the Lord God.

Ezk 22:26-27

The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles. The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. The righteous person may have many troubles, but the Lord delivers him from them all; he protects all his bones, not one of them will be broken.

A Call To Action

It has been five years since the nightmare on Wall Street, the downturn in the housing market, economic homicide, stock market suicide and job market genocide. We have experienced a constant series of rollercoaster events to last a lifetime: Natural disasters, global, social and political turmoil.  Now, we’re facing another panic attack in Congress over extreme budget cuts in our nation. Have you had enough?

A Heart of Prayer

When life seems to be spiraling out of control, it is only through prayer that makes a difference. Man is not in control as much as the world system believes. We serve an unlimited, omniscient, all-knowing God. “God who works all things out for our highest good”. Romans 8:28

Perhaps, God is calling us to acknowledge Him. Desire Him. Understand Him. Love Him. We simply can’t keep living less than His expectations and intentions that He created us to be. Phil 2:13

A Heart of Repentance

We can’t continue to sleep walk through life while others walk dead. “Awake thou that sleeps and arise from the dead and Christ will give you light. See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise redeeming the time because the days are evil. Therefore, be not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.” Esph 5:14-17 We need a touch from God: A spiritual awakening. A revival. Only the power of God can change the direction the world is going. Repentance must be at the heart of every man.  “Every knee shall bow and confess that He is Lord.”Phil 2:10-11

A Heart of Service

We are in a new season. The year is still young. Let’s add caring to our resolution list for mankind in 2013. We need a call to action. We must also serve our neighborhoods, our communities , our world. We have all been hit with some type of devastation in our lives: A death of a loved one, an illness, a tragic accident, foreclosure, divorce, abusive relationships, addictions, job loss, bankruptcy and other horrific things. We can’t escape life, but we can heal our wounds. It takes each of us. When we give back to others, we enrich our own lives and uplift others. We cannot afford to wait for someone else to make a difference. There is power in one, but there is also power in the masses. “Many are called, but few are chosen.”

The corruption, greed, and hatred is a manifestation of the enemy magnified on the earth whose mission is to kill, steal and destroy. The Lord’s intention is to give us life more abundantly. John 10:10

A Heart to Build Future Generations

There may not be much we can personally do about the decisions made in Washington, but you can decide what you can do to make a difference in your community. Jesus said, “Destroy this temple and in three days I will raise it up.” When Christ lives within us, “We can do all things in Christ which strengthens us.”Phil 4:13

We can begin to rebuild a new future for the next generation which starts with one prayer at a time and one brick at a time.
