Morning Direction From Scripture 11-9-16

O Lord, I have come to you for protection;
    don’t let me be disgraced.
    Save me, for you do what is right. Psalm 31:1

Is there something you need to be rescued from today? Spend some time asking the Lord to do that.

      • There are many things about this season of our country’s history which will be regretted in hind sight I believe. Now I resume the posture that has taken me through the divisiveness of our country up until this point. I know that prayer is a power which brings hope to the darkest of hours.

      • The people who walk in darkness
        will see a great light.
        For those who live in a land of deep darkness,[c]
        a light will shine….For a child is born to us,
        a son is given to us.
        The government will rest on his shoulders.
        And he will be called:
        Wonderful Counselor,[d] Mighty God,
        Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
        7 His government and its peace
        will never end.
        He will rule with fairness and justice from the throne of his ancestor David
        for all eternity. Isaiah 9…This is a hope which goes beyond Donald or Hillary. It is where we must turn our eyes. This is prophecy and it is future. What we face now is but a moment and a step towards this eventuality.

      • I hear you. But this “step” could be a rapid descent down a slippery slope. We shall see, but I’m extremely discouraged that my fellow citizens think like this.

      • I almost have no doubt about what you say. I have felt for some time that the writing was on the wall about our “slippery slope”. There is little to be glad of and my hope has not rested in our government for some time. I think I have reconciled myself to the knowledge that perhaps America will fall before the Day of the Lord. I do not see our Republic anywhere in prophecy of Scripture and to me that is more than a geocentric omission. That said I also sense in my spirit that those who will truly seek God will be OK…better than OK, blessed. There will be hardship but we will be given tools to deal with it.

  1. I’d appreciate being rescued from where I live–it feels like 19 years into the 40-year trek to the Promised Land…on the other hand, God has been good to bless me when I really need some encouragement, so I’m not loudly murmuring today 🙂 And maybe the latest person he’s sent into my life will be someone who will help me realize my dream of leaving to a new home where I can say I’ve seen goodness in the land of the living…
