There is only one answer to our nation’s problems…
After going out for a ‘market-meal’ in our local area last week, we had a chat to the parking guy. I commented on his beautiful voice, as I’ve often heard him sing praises whilst watching the cars under the stars… I was encouraging him to keep singing, for God is changing the atmosphere through his praises.
As he shared some stories of how his family has been affected by the growing crime in our country, especially gang/drug-related, it became so apparent – once again – that the ONLY answer to our current problems, is JESUS!
How can we possibly control the growing drug and gangster problem? How can we stop the killings and rape? We need change in our government, but even with the best government, our problems will still be far from over. No government can solve the magnitude of our challenges. Only Jesus can!
We need our people to find the love of Jesus. We need the criminals to be convicted by the Cross. We need God to intervene and arrest those who are bound up in sin, by His Spirit and Truth. We need the dirty, rebellious and addictive knees to fall before the one, true King. We need deliverance to come to our people, repentant hearts to be made new and wounded hearts to be bound up.
It’s all about Jesus. Let’s look to Him alone as the answer to our nation’s problems. We need His intervention, we need His miracle, we need Jesus!
God is alive and working. We need to pray and see revival come to our nation. Transformation will follow His outpouring!
Take the time to read this article by Debbie Przybylski, ‘How to pray for God’s transforming power in your city’.
1 Peter 2:24,25
24He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed.25For you were straying like sheep, but have now returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.
6Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
