In my last post, I warned that something sudden could happen to our nation. As I have read the Scriptures related to nations and sought the LORD, I believe this is a real possibility.
The frequent response to such a warning is, “What should I do to prepare?” You can find my answer to that question by clicking here, but today I want to expand on that answer by asserting that it is imperative that you ask the Lord what He wants you to do.
Too often when we are confronted with national difficulties our reaction is to run to news outlets, friends, the internet, Christian leaders, and even prepping TV shows. BUT FIRST, we need to run to the Lord!
If there was ever a time to seek the Lord about the future of our nation and what do, it is now. However, I anticipate people asking, “If I inquire of the Lord what to do, will He really give me the insights I need?”
I believe the answer is, “Yes!”
Three promises from God’s Word that help me believe Him for divine wisdom are:
- “If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt . . . (James 1:5–6).
- “[T]he wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere” (James 3:17).
- “So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened” (Luke 11:9–10).
It was by seeking the Lord with these promises in mind that God gave me the understanding that sacrificial love needs to be practiced now, but will become exponentially more important in the days ahead. You can read the expanded version of this perspective here.
With the promises of Scripture filling your soul, take the necessary time to meet with God to discern what He wants you to do to prepare for the challenging days ahead. Your part is to seek Him. His part is to give you the insight you need.
He will answer. Are you asking?
