Morning by Morning, September 27 - Hillary and Donald Are Not Our Hope
Good morning, Lord Jesus. Rule and reign as Lord and Savior in my heart and my life today. ...
"Is not this the fast that I choose:
to loose the bonds of injustice,
to undo the thongs of the yoke,
to let the oppressed to free,
and to break every yoke?
Is it not to share your bread with the hungry,
and bring the homeless poor into your house;
when you see the naked, to cover them,
and not to hide yourself from your own kin?
Then your light shall break forth like the dawn,
and your healing shall spring up quickly;
your vindicator shall go before you,
the glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard.
Then you shall call, and the Lord will answer;
you shall cry for help, and He will say, Here I Am.
If you remove the yoke from among you,
the pointing of the finger, the speaking of evil,
if you offer your food to the hungry
and satisfy the needs of the afflicted,
then your light shall rise in the darkness
and your gloom be like the noonday.
The Lord will guide you continually,
and satisfy your needs in parched places,
and make your bones strong;
and you shall be like a watered garden,
like a spring of water,
whose waters never fail.
Your ancient ruins shall be rebuilt;
you shall raise up the foundations of many generation;
you shall be called the repairer of the breach,
the restorer of streets to live in" (Isaiah 58:6-12).
Hillary and Donald can argue all they want. And it's our responsibility to discern and to judge, with the right and the privilege we have, to vote the choice we make. At the same time, our nation will not be judged by the leader we choose in Washington as much as by the way we lead our lives as a nation from our hearts. "When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory. All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats..." (Matthew 25:31-46).
One day, You'll come to judge the earth, but every day before that day to come, You invite me to judge my own heart and the heart of my nation (John 7:24). Every day, You invite me to humble my heart and pray, to turn to You and embrace Your heart and Your ways in my heart and on behalf of my nation (2 Chronicles 7:14). And every day You invite us to remember the promise of Your Word, "Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.... Let Your mercy, O Lord, be upon us, just as we hope in You" (Psalm 33:12-22 NKJV).
We can thank You, O Lord our God, that Hillary and Donald are not our Hope, but You are. Let Your mercy be upon us, as we hope in You. In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen.
I join with you in prayer for our hearts and the heart of our nation to embrace the heart of our God, as we hope in Him, in Jesus' name. God bless you, my friend!
