Son, today people in America do whatever seems right in their own eyes. They have forgotten all that I have done for them. Their leaders have become proud.
Lord, do not let them have their way so that their evil plans succeed; surely Your children are upset and afraid at what is taking place!
Son, look at what’s happened in America. People eat and are not satisfied. They drink but are still thirsty. They buy new clothes only to want more. They work hard, but their money disappears as though they were putting them in pockets filled with holes! Everything they do and everything they offer is defiled by their sin. Because they refuse to return to Me, I will destroy everything they have worked so hard for.
My children must think carefully about what I am about to say, “What this world honors is detestable in My sight! I am about to shake America and destroy all the treasures it depends upon; for America is like all the other ungodly nations. The people have forgotten that everything they have has come from My hand of blessing. Even the silver and gold are Mine; for I created all the wealth in the earth. People like to appear righteous in the eyes of the public, but I know their hearts; just how far from Me they are.”
Son, I have sparked enthusiasm in My children to complete My work. They must get it done, and know that I am with them as they work. They must not be afraid of the leaders in their nation. For, I give the faithful a promise that I will protect and bless them. When I shake the heavens and the earth, My children must use all of their worldly resources to help others find Me, and know that when their earthly possessions are gone I will welcome them into their eternal home. If My children are faithful in the little things I ask of them, then they will be faithful in things much greater. If they are dishonest in little things, I can not trust them with greater responsibilities. If they are untrustworthy about worldly wealth, how will I trust them with the true riches of heaven?
Lord, You know when I sit down and stand up, when I rest and how I work. You know my every thought, even the thoughts I want to keep secret and hidden. You see where I go and what I do at home. You know everything about me. You know what I am going to say even before I say it. You go before me because I can’t see the snares that are set for me. You follow behind me because the enemy is a back-stabber. I can never escape Your Spirit! I can never get away from Your presence! And I’m so glad! You made my body and knit me together. You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion; as I was woven together in the dark of the womb. You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in Your book. Every moment in my life was laid out before a single day had passed. How precious are Your thoughts about me, O Lord. Thank You that when I wake up, I am certain that You are still with me! Help me by pointing out anything in me that offends You, and lead me along Your good path.
Lord, help me to have the enthusiasm and endurance to run this race that You have set before me. Help me to keep my eyes on You and not on the things of this world.
