“What is happening to our country?” we are all asking ourselves. The Psalmist wondered aloud at why things had become so bad in his country and then, after he entered the sanctuary, he understood.
This morning I read from 2 Samuel 24:1 “Once again the anger of the Lord burned against Israel, and he caused David to harm them by taking a census. ‘Go and count the people of Israel and Judah,’ the Lord told him.” As a result of David’s action Israel suffered a plague which took the lives of 70,000 out of a relatively small nation.
God is able to do anything! What seems to us to be an unrelated series of events resulting in the presidency of Donald Trump with all the harm it is causing is, at its root, a judgement from God on America.
As a nation we must take an account of ourselves. This begins with each one of us looking within. Instead of trying to fix things or turn to political activity, the real solution is repentance and a return to godliness.
