There was a popular Christian song back in the day called, Who Do I Turn To.
It said, we didn’t mind saying we had no clue about how to solve our problems.
Not unlike the Children of Israel, we once called on God to help us through our trials and to be our guide, our rock, and our deliverer.
The bible shows us how time and again, the nation of Israel called upon God for help, when all else failed.
Today, there’s trouble through out the world. Wars, crimes, and human suffering abound. Yet no one seems to want to admit they need God to help them out of their mess.
We blame it on everyone and everything. It’s those Palestinians. It’s the Jews. No, it’s ISIS! It’s the Syrians. No, It’s the White Man! It’s the Cops! It’s those Politicians, It’s the System, etc,.
In the 20th century Hitler blamed the Jews for all of their country’s problems. Today, nations are again blaming their fellow citizens for their country’s problems, killing and driving them out without any remorse.
Stevie Wonder got it right when he recorded his famous song, “It’s The Man In The Mirror”. We must take a look at ourselves, exam the sin in us, stop pointing the finger at others.
Instead we should be asking ourselves, how can I improve my behavior? Can I help someone who is in need? How can I make time to tutor that problem child? How can I help solve the problem? I’ll start praying for peace.
In America, we took God out of schools and made it a crime to pray, because it offended some.
Now, with all the troubles we are facing today, we find ourselves blaming everything and everybody for everything wrong in the world.
The Republicans are blaming the President for being weak, thereby causing more crimes in this country and aboard. The Democrats are blaming the Republicans for not being compassionate enough towards the poor and their attempts to cut social security and tighten up on welfare and care for the elderly.
Immigrations has become the hottest political topic, in spite of the fact, history shows that we were once all immigrants in this country. Many now blame the increased crime rate and drug trafficking on immigrations laws not being enforced.
In the beginning of time man had an excuse for his problems too, Eve blamed Satan, Adam blamed Eve and the blame continues today.
Sin placed a wedge between man and God.
The good news is that wedge can be broken because we have a wedge-breaker and His name is Jesus Christ.
He washes away our sins and gives us another opportunity to get it right.
Pickup your wedge today and pray that as a nation we began to use it.
We are instructed to pray for our leaders and men in authority everywhere.
I'm a young senior, recently married, after raising 5 kids. I'm a christian and love to capture videos and tell stories with the camcorder. I love to skate and sing. I love to learn new things. I also love to garden and plant new kinds of veggies. I find it fascinating that people can communicate through blogging the word of God.
