Lord, my body is like a fragile clay jar which is being pressed on every side by the troubles of today; pressed but not crushed. I am puzzled by all that we see going on in the world, but I am not hopeless. I get put down by the people of so called progressive thinking, but I go after Your thoughts and I choose to think the way You think.
I will never be abandoned by You. I will tell anyone who will listen, “I believe in Jesus!” That is why I can never give up on doing so. My body is dying but My spirit is renewed every day by Your word. The troubles I face today are small and won’t last very long! When I keep my eyes on You these problems will produce for me a glory that vastly outweighs them all, and that glory will last forever! So I must not look at the troubles I see now; rather, I must fix my gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things I see now will soon be gone, but the things I cannot see will last forever.
Lord, today people’s minds have become hardened to the truth, and that is why they cannot recognize the truth when it is told to them. This veil can only be removed by believing in You and receiving Your Spirit. When I tell the truth about You, all who are honest will know it is the truth. What is the truth? Satan is the god of this world, and he has blinded the minds of those who refuse to believe in the truth. They are unable to see or understand the glorious light of the Good News; the news about Jesus Christ. Wherever the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom!
Son, I knew you before you were formed in your mother’s womb. I set you apart and appointed you as My spokesmen, and you must go wherever I send you and say whatever I tell you.
Tell America I have pronounced judgment on it for all their evil, and for deserting Me. What did they find wrong with Me that led them to stray so far from Me? They worshiped worthless things only to become worthless themselves. They do not ask, “Where is The Lord?” But shout out loud, “At last we are free from God! We don’t need him.” Some of the pastors of America who are responsible to teach My word, even ignore Me, and teach things I never instructed them to teach. America has brought this upon itself when they rebel against Me. Your wickedness will bring your own punishment, and soon you will see what an evil, bitter thing it is to abandon the Lord your God and not fear Him.
Lord, You are so good, so ready to forgive with unfailing love for all who ask for Your help. Teach me Your ways, that I may live according to Your truth! Grant me purity of heart, so that I may honor You as You deserve. Your love for me is greater than life!
