Psa 19:7-11 The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple. The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes. The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.
In consideration of the new emergency managers that have been placed in school districts and local governments, I am reminded of the principles of the scripture. Also, after years of lowering the standard of civility and decency, both in dress and conduct, we are now seeing the result of what can only be explained as a lack of God. All sustainable laws come from the foundation of the Word. When God’s Word is dismissed, people recreate new definitions for family and learning. Naturally, we fail when we live outside of the law of the Lord. The family unit is destroyed when we reinvent morality. Government is corrupted when adherence to the scripture is dismissed. Education, justice, and sensibilities decay in the dark shadows of humanism. Carnality is like a black mold that permeates the air.
If there was ever a time for the scripture to be heard, today is the day. There is a Light and a Truth, but you won’t hear it in the halls of government. You’ll hear it in the House of God. There is a way to keep your family and marriage strong, but you won’t view it in Hollywood. It comes from the presence of the Lord and submission to His Word. I’m inviting you back to the Word where the soul is converted, and wisdom, rejoicing, and righteousness can be found.
