Tensions in America seem to escalate with the passing of each day. Sometimes the hatred towards one another can be overwhelming. How do you create peace in a chaotic world full of turmoil? We are quick to feel like giving up and embracing the numbness of lost hope.
However, if you truly believe in God, you should know that His presence is always with you. He is watching over the world right now. He is saddened by what is going on, and He cares. Pray to him for peace in America and peace in the world. Pray that we will have revival and millions of people will become saved. “And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.” Colossians 3:15
With so much evil, it is hard to see any good. We have to allow for positivity in our lives instead of dwelling on the negativity. Start showing God’s love each and every day. When we start doing something about the evil, the goodness will start to shine through. “Let him eschew evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue it.” 1 Peter 3:11. We can be the light in the world when there only seems to be darkness enveloping everyone and everything.
Can you do one thing today? Can you pray? With each day that passes, say a prayer. We get so busy and put off the things that we should be doing for God. A simple prayer takes up only a small portion of your time. It is beyond worth it to pray to your Savior.
"Heavenly Father, please have mercy on America and send us a nation-changing revival in which tens of millions of Americans get saved. In Jesus' name we pray, Amen."
