Psalm 12 (ESV)
“1Save, O LORD, for the godly one is gone;
for the faithful have vanished from among the children of man.
2Everyone utters lies to his neighbor;
with flattering lips and a double heart they speak.
3May the LORD cut off all flattering lips,
the tongue that makes great boasts,
4those who say, “With our tongue we will prevail,
our lips are with us; who is master over us?”
5″Because the poor are plundered, because the needy groan,
I will now arise,” says the LORD;
“I will place him in the safety for which he longs.”
6 The words of the LORD are pure words,
like silver refined in a furnace on the ground,
purified seven times.
7You, O LORD, will keep them;
you will guard us[b] from this generation forever.
8On every side the wicked prowl,
as vileness is exalted among the children of man.”
With the condition our country is in, concerning the economy, the faithful leaders we look up to seem to be disappearing. It seems like everynight there is another government official who appears in a controversial news story, another professional athlete who is breaking some kind of rule or attempting to cheat the system.
All the “role models” that Americans once used to look up to, are being swayed by the economic state of our country, they all are trying to find a way to stay ahead of everybody else, no matter who they have to step over to get to the top. People are constantly looking for an easy fix to their problems and sometimes they work but only for a short period of time. Then they end up in a bigger hole than the one they started in.
People are constantly looking for a solution but fail to recognize the only solution adequate is to call upon the Name of the Lord. Jeremiah 33:3 says “Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known”, we look only to the things that we see for answers and totally subtract God from the equation. When the Lord tells us that He has treasures, blessings, breakthrough’s, awaiting us if we call out to Him with all of our Heart.
Today I petition that we all take any concern, heartache, stronghold or any burden that is hindering our daily life to the Lord. Make the call and cry out to God because He is listening! God Be With You…
