During the Cold War, at a time of great unrest in America, the chaplain of the U.S. Senate, Rev. Peter Marshall, eloquently stated, “The choice before us is plain: Christ or chaos, conviction or compromise, discipline or disintegration.”
Amidst tremendous political strife, social discord, racial tensions, and COVID-19 concerns, as Christians, we have the responsibility to boldly respond to fear and despair with faith and hope.
In the coming months, policy gains made on behalf of life, religious liberty, and individual freedom will most certainly be challenged. With God’s help, the Nebraska Family Alliance (NFA) team remains committed to protecting the most vulnerable among us and advocating for the freedom to follow the dictates of your faith.
Instead of allowing political pressures and outside influences determine our actions, let us lead with prayerful conviction and hopeful perseverance.
Praying with Conviction:
2 Chronicles 7:14 declares, “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
Prayer is powerful because when we humble ourselves before the King of Kings and invite Him to change hearts and minds, God’s love brings peace and restoration. Trust our omniscient God with your unknown future.
Persevering with Hope:
Hebrews 10:38-39 compels us to rely on God’s steadfast strength in our daily lives. “But my righteous ones will live by faith. If he shrinks back, I will not be pleased. But we are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of those who believe and are saved.”
God, in His sovereignty, destined you to be alive today in 2021. Let your light shine in the darkness because you were created for a time such as this.
