Why do the nations rage and the peoples plot in vain? Ps.2:1
For behold, I am raising up the Chaldeans, that bitter and hasty nation, who march through the breadth of the earth, to seize dwellings not their own. Hab. 1:6
Nations can become bitter and even rage. We have had an unprecedented year to say the least! We must be mindful not to become bitter! The Bible tells us in Proverbs, 👉Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.
Many have become bitter about politics. Political parties, figures, plans, and tactics have drawn a deeper line dividing the American people. How can two walk together lest they be agreed. Many of the values dividing people cannot be compromised. We stand for our values, period. However we do not have to become cynical, angry, bitter or resentful.
It is not neccessary to hate, to slander, to accuse or even to gossip about those who may stand on the other side. It is however neccessary to pray! To pray that hearts be guarded, to guard our own heart. The thief comes to steal, to kill, to destroy.
👉Many cannot even see, hear, or speak of politics without becoming enraged!
Righteous indignation is one thing, but should it not be coupled with fervent prayer that avails?
👉 Why is it that anger is the most commonly displayed emotion and not weeping?
Should we not weep for those souls, for our nation, our people?
When nations become bitter and/or enraged they war! They kill! They hate! They go into bondage!
There are plenty of things to be angry about everyday. But the sun should not go down on our wrath! Many are giving the enemy footholds undetected because they have become bitter and angry about our political affairs. I was. I had to shake myself, repent, cry out and make adjustments with God in the secret place and let Him help me find my footing, my balance.
When someone says a name believers should not fill up with every negative emotion and fly off at the tongue, this is not healthy for you or those around you. This does not help your faith, or your walk with God. This does not welcome or usher in the Glory or Presence of God.
Why do the nations rage?
Many get angrier at the mention of running political figures name than they do at the Devil!
What kind of sense does that make?
What if we stopped wrestling with flesh and blood?
Mention Trump or Biden or Harris and the blood vessels pop, the mouth spews, the vitals rise…. but see your lost loved ones in depression or addiction and what?
Who is the real enemy of the nations?
Yes we know spirits work through people like puppets.
But what happens if as a nation we go deeper into bitterness and rage?
Don’t open doors to the darkness. Don’t let your body, heart, and mind become sick. Guard your heart with all diligence, for out of it flows the issues of life. Pray for hearts around you, that they be delivered from anger and bitterness and become fervent, effective prayer warriors. this invites the Presence and Glory!
