Isaiah 58:2 (Fighting for a Wounded Nation)

24 Feb Isaiah 58:2 (Fighting for a Wounded Nation)

Welcome God now with this LIFE Group Devotion (FB), provided by LIFE Runners (FB). Guest Authors schedule. LIFE Minute radio.
“They seek me day after day, and desire to know my ways, like a nation that has done what is just and not abandoned the law of their God; They ask me to declare what is due them, pleased to gain access to God.” ~ Isaiah 58:2 (full readings)

Rosemary’s Reflections: How wonderful would it be to say that nation was ours? That people from California to the Carolina’s, from Minnesota to Mississippi, would all open their hearts to our Lord. Right now our nation is under some serious spiritual warfare, whether or not the media believes it or not. The souls caught in the crossfire need a haven. We need to let them know they can find shelter in God’s arms. We are ambassadors for Christ, soldiers carrying our crosses with honor. We will be targeted for our beliefs. We will be tempted and ridiculed. But we need to stand firm with our faith, so we can help heal our nation one wounded soul at a time.

Faith Challenge: What are you doing to arm yourself for spiritual warfare? Lent is a time for us to grow strong in Christ. If you’re giving up TV or Facebook time, why not fill that time with brushing up on some Scripture or attending Adoration? If you’re giving up sweets or pop, how about donating those things to a local food pantry? Be an example for our nation.

Faith Quote: “The evil spirits, because of their pride, anger, and envy, will attempt to turn your gaze away from God through either temptations or harassments. They seek to surround you with their temptations and harassments so that every thought and action you engage in might be in opposition to what the Lord desires for you.” ~ St. Padre Pio

Through Christ Our Lord,
2 Tim 4:7

* Pray/Fast: Prayer connects us with God’s will & His miracles, changing us & helping others. Fast from things that take your eyes off Jesus. Those who pray together stay together, and close to God!
* Save Unborn (& family): Abortion reality (images)…#1 death cause (22% pregnancies). Prov 24:11 & Jer 1:5. “A great poverty that a child must die that you might live as you wish.” Mother Teresa.
* Evangelize: Make room for unbelievers & re-evangelization of self, by way of prayer (relationship) and following Christ’s example of love (service/sacrifice/mercy). Mt 28:19.
