Proverbs 11:11, By the blessing of the upright the city is exalted: but it is overthrown by the mouth of the wicked.
God, His Word, His ways, His commandments are all being removed little by little with each passing day. Our nation, as a whole, is getting farther and farther away from what was originally intended. As I read Proverbs 11 this morning (today is the 11th, right?) I couldn’t help but to think about the blessings of God that are going away along with His Word, ways, and commandments. As long as the majority is striving to walk upright in His sight, the blessings will fall on all; the just and the unjust. On the flip side, when the majority are not striving, the blessings go away, indeed the curses come.
Proverbs 14:3, Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.
As much as I hate to see our country take the path it is now following, I can still rejoice for I know God has a plan and I know by the truth of His Word how that plan pans out. Come Lord Jesus.
Lord bless you today.
