Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb. Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed. Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. (Psalm 37:1-4)
I HAVE FRETTED BECAUSE OF EVILDOERS in this country. The above verses are the solution to my own mis-thinking. I must think God’s thoughts after Him and pray His words to Him as I find them in His Word. That is the only solution I see for the troubling of my soul. All that troubles me is in His able hand, under His watchful eye and His determined end.
I CAN REMIND THE LORD EVERY DAY that I am depending on Him to take care of it and ask Him to do it speedily. We do not pray to persuade God to become interested in evildoers who are wrecking our country. We seek to take hold of God’s willingness to intervene. Therefore, we must pray earnestly and continuously, until we prevail.
AMERICA IS IN MORE TURMOIL THAN I CAN REMEMBER. America kills more of her own people every year than were killed in all our wars combined. We have killed over 61 million of our own, most helpless people since 1973: 61 million in 46 years. And every day we see the intense struggle of our leaders to make evil our national public policy.
GOD WILL NOT FOREVER SLEEP. I remember those words from Thomas Jefferson who wrote: “I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just and that His justice cannot sleep forever.”
WHEN OUR NATION RESPONDED TO WAR forced upon us shortly after December 7, 1941, our nation also turned to prayer. We fought and continued in prayer until it was over and 416,800 of our military were buried and we had won a just cause.
BUT TODAY, OUR NATION HAS EMBRACED A CULTURE OF DEATH and hardness of heart. Along with that, I believe more and more Christians in America are praying for God’s help to stop the carnage of death heaped upon our little ones by their mothers who sign the death warrant for their babies and by the bloody doctors who do their bidding.
A FEW STATE LEGISLATURES HAVE PASSED a law that forbids abortion after there is a heartbeat. The Daily Signal reports that “In the wake of a series of undercover videos that hit the abortion industry last year, 15 states have attempted to cut funding to Planned Parenthood.”
POLITICO REPORTS that “A majority of the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Tuesday that Ohio can cut state funding to Planned Parenthood because the organization performs abortions, overturning a lower court ruling that blocked the state from stripping about $1.5 million of annual support from the network of clinics.”
