All week the words "a sleeping giant is awakening in America's breast" have been ringing through me. From past experience I know the word won't let me go until I print it or speak it . Perhaps a lot of prayer, praise and heartfelt conversion will lull this "giant" back to sleep. We are rocking the world too violently with our sins and the earth is "weeping" it's grief. It will continue to "weep" until we turn with all our hearts toward the Author of Life. Peace will not be ours if we do not listen to what the Lord is trying to tell us. Mark my words, peace comes from God alone. Those who believe that they can find peace anywhere else are deceived.
"O daughter of my people, gird on sackcloth,
roll in the ashes.
Mourn as for an only child
with bitter wailing,
For sudden upon us comes the destroyer." Jer. 6:26
This is from Jeremiah, chapter 6, The Enemy at the Gates. If only this were true and the enemy was still at the gate. The truth is - he is within the gates and has been for a while. You can see signs of him everywhere. We should not fear though:
"The Lion of Judah has roared and the dragon's time is short."
Praise to the King of Kings!
