WHO IS GOD REFERRING TO WHEN HE SAYS HE NEEDS A MAN?
Is any one of us reading this, asking himself the question how he could get himself back to the heartbeat of God? Is anyone asking what he or she could do, to begin to carry the concerns of God? Is anyone seeking to please the master again? Can I hear anyone crying out saying, tell me what to do. What can I do? I must see a change in myself and in my community.
Are you now taking a decision, making plans strategizing, to begin to proclaim and establish justice in your world? Can you see the pictures before you on how to intervene on behalf of the oppressed, are you thinking of what to do to the disenfranchised of your society? Do you notice the abused of your society? Can you see the afflicted that are crying for that justice every day? What of those who are been maltreated on daily basis, do you think they need that justice? Did you see any of those who are downtrodden, would that justice help them? Anyone oppressed and suppressed around you, can you serve them justice?
Ladies and gentlemen, lack of sound mind and judgment – the ability to make considered decisions or come to sensible conclusions, is a matter of frustration and disillusionment to God. If God is saying he doesn’t have men to pursue and establish these, are you not thinking that He is referring to you? Is it not clear now that he is not just addressing the preachers? Can’t you hear his voice that he is obviously talking to you to do something about it?
Can you start a movement in your land that will encourage men and women to begin to think, to begin to make sound judgment and informed decisions? Will you bring illumination to your people? Will you facilitate understanding amidst those whom you live with? The earth is crying for people who make sound judgment and informed decisions.
If God is so concerned about the state of truth in any society, I think that should begin to concern us as well. When was the last time your heart was troubled that truth is been ridiculed where you live? Are you sure you are not one of those who simply close their eyes and turn in the other direction just to avoid experiencing the horrible truth of our world?
Every one of us can do something about the truth. You can at least stand for the truth wherever you are. You can refuse to compromise the truth. Of course you can tell the truth. Truth could be proclaimed. Truth could be defended. Truth could be protected. There are so many responses to the truth that would please the heart of our master. Heaven awaits only your decision.
To be continued tomorrow with the following points:
- What God sees when he doesn’t see a man
- Why every human being is not a man
- The qualities of heaven
FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, CHURCH AND NATION
