I continually find myself in complete and utter dismay with the current events in our precious country. The country that men and women have died to protect appears to be circling the drain claiming "rights" for those women who find themselves pregnant, but not desiring to give birth. My first thought, be it simplistic, if you don't want to risk getting pregnant with a child, then don't have sex. But, of course, who would deny the carnal animal instinct that was planted in each of us? Yes, this instinct was planted by God, but with very specific guidelines. Sex is a pleasure to be enjoyed by a man and women who enter into holy matrimony. And the crowd responds, "yeah, right"! How archaic is that thinking in the 21st Century? And thus we have it. The world at large has veered off the narrow road of God's GPS filling their lives with potholes of carnal self-satisfaction.
So the latest in a long list of "I can't believe we've stooped this low as a nation", is this new law coming out of New York. Evidently the lawmakers in this state hasn't one person who has read scripture from God Almighty. Aborting babies up until birth? You have got to be kidding me? Almost every single night on our local news we have descriptive pictures of animals that have been mistreated and individuals who are being punished by law for these actions. Now I'm not saying I'm against animals, but when did they get more important than people? Yep, people. Those babies are people from the time that sperm and egg got together. It is so important that God sent to us Psalm 139 beginning in verse 13. As a refresher, here is what it says....take a moment and read it.
For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
15 My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place,
when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw my unformed body;
all the days ordained for me were written in your book
before one of them came to be.
17 How precious to me are your thoughts,[a] God!
How vast is the sum of them!
18 Were I to count them,
they would outnumber the grains of sand--
when I awake, I am still with you.
Read the entire Psalm, it is a statement of our lives even before we came to be. There are no coincidences with God, there are divine appointments. If a woman's life is in danger with a pregnancy, she would know about it probably before she was with child. But, if not, she would certainly know about it before she was 6, 7, 8 or 9 months pregnant.
I know not all of us are going to be in agreement with laws that are made, but can you really say you agree with the law that is seemingly being voted upon in New York? How long will it be before it reaches other states? God help us all. There was a time Biblically when the world circled the drain and God said "enough".....and a flood covered the earth. Think God will keep on allowing His children, those He cared so much for that He sent His only Son to die on a cruel cross in order that they might live eternally, is just going to let those who minds and hearts are controlled by someone other than Him, continue to mock Him? We are trending on dangerous ground, friends. If you are a believer, it's time to make your thoughts and opinions known.
Psalm 12 states in The Message:
1-2 Quick, God, I need your helping hand!
The last decent person just went down,
All the friends I depended on gone.
Everyone talks in lie language;
Lies slide off their oily lips.
They doubletalk with forked tongues.
3-4 Slice their lips off their faces! Pull
The braggart tongues from their mouths!
I’m tired of hearing, “We can talk anyone into anything!
Our lips manage the world.”
5 Into the hovels of the poor,
Into the dark streets where the homeless groan, God speaks:
“I’ve had enough; I’m on my way
To heal the ache in the heart of the wretched.”
6-8 God’s words are pure words,
Pure silver words refined seven times
In the fires of his word-kiln,
Pure on earth as well as in heaven.
God, keep us safe from their lies,
From the wicked who stalk us with lies,
From the wicked who collect honors
For their wonderful lies.
God, our Father, forgive us, cleanse us, and deliver us from evil thoughts. Plant your Word in our hearts and change the hearts of stone that are so willing to sign a piece of paper into law that will kill thousands of babies. God save us and save those who can't defend themselves. In Jesus' Name, Amen
