The uprisings in America and around the world give an unhealthy ‘aroma’ of unrest in the air. There seems to be a total loss of respect that begins in the home. Disrespect is infectious. If it’s allowed in the home, it spreads to the neighborhood, schools, communities, cities, states, governments and the nations.
In the time before Noah and building of the Ark, the people in the known world were doing what was right in their own eyes. God saw that the earth had become corrupt and was filled with violence. Some do not believe in God today.
Psalm 14: 1 & 2 NLT – “Only fools say in their hearts, ‘There is no God.’ They are corrupt, and their actions are evil; not one of them does good! The LORD looks down from heaven on the entire human race; he looks to see if anyone is truly wise, if anyone seeks God.” It does not matter who may say there is no God, I’m thankful for my intimate relationship with Him. Even nature itself proclaims there is a God.
The same ungodliness in Noah’s time seems pervasive around the world now. In fact, God predicted it would be so as we are approaching the ‘end times.’ In our land, instead of the leaders saying, “Let’s reason together to see what would be best for the nation,” most are looking out for their own selfish interests.
When there are peaceful gatherings of people who want a change, they are responsible to obey the laws of the land and clean up after themselves. Now we are seeing demonstrations with a ‘mob rule’ attitude. They are not respecting the law or the land. We need God’s intervention through godly people praying for mercy on America. I continue to trust in God and use my God-given rights in this land to have a voice through voting and respecting the rights of others to do the same.
