Just turn on the news. God’s laws are being broken at every turn. What used to be known as wrong is being touted as a righteous response to injustice. What once was called sin is today called inclusion. What once offended now is defended.
Right is called wrong and wrong is called right.
We must pray along with the psalmist his prayer from today’s verses.
“I am your servant; give me discernment that I may understand your statutes. It is time for you to act, Lord; your law is being broken. Because I love your commands more than gold, more than pure gold, and because I consider all your precepts right, I hate every wrong path.” Psalm 119:125-128
God’s laws do not change with the winds. If God’s laws are ignored those winds can become hurricanes and the destruction is great. If we walk away from the cleansing fire of God’s Word, we will face the fires of judgment.
We need to pray that our world will fall in love with God’s Word and follow it. It starts with me.
Lord, You are calling us to humble ourselves and pray and seek Your face. We do that right now and plead with You to heal our land. Help us to hate the sin but bring the Gospel of love to the sinner.
