Scripture: To whom, then, will you compare God?
What image will you compare him to? ( Isaiah 40:18)
Devotional: From the beginning of creation God determined to reveal His image in the man that He created as Male and Female. (Gen 1:26-27)
In all of nature God gives testimony to the equality of male and female and the value of their offspring. God created man in His image, male and female HE created them. All the attributes of male and female were present in the first man (Adam) and also in the Son of God (Col 1:15). Satan has presented to the world a false escape plan from the curse of the garden. Today we live in a society that demands that we not only allow same sex marriages, but that we honor this union by teaching our children from an early age that it is normal, when it is clearly against the law of nature and nature’s God.
God’s plan for the man and woman from the beginning was for them to be fruitful and multiply so that the whole earth would be filled with His glory through the image of the family.
Satan’s plan from the beginning has been to destroy the family that God created. He first approached the woman, the life giver of the family. He knew that if he could destroy her and her off spring, he could shatter the image of God on earth. In the garden he deceived the first woman into thinking that she could be as wise as God. He deceived her into thinking that there would be no consequences for disobeying what God had clearly commanded.
God tells us to choose life, but our law makers tell us we have a choice, we don't really have to choose life. Our lawmakers tell women that she alone has the "right" to decide if the human being living inside her should live or die.
God's word calls children a gift from God, but our current President calls them punishment for a mistake.
God ordained the boundaries of the universe for our protection. Our current President tells us that we are not defined by our boundaries in the 21st Century! God gave the sea its boundary, so the waters would not overstep His command. God gave men their boundaries and taught them how to lead through the example of Christ. Personal boundaries as well as state and national boundaries are necessary for our protection.
Government without boundaries becomes tyranny!
Our constitution was meant to protect all human beings! Our judges exceeded their legal authority with the Roe vs Wade decision. Our law makers have not protected women and children from abortion!
God is LOVE! There is no greater picture of love than when a mother looks upon the face of her newborn baby for the first time, or when a new father sees his wife and newborn child for the first time after birth. The perfect image of God in all His splendor is the family (father, mother, and child). The image of the Triune God is complete in the image of the family.
What image will we compare Him to?
How long will "we the people" continue to let those in Washington D.C. who have no respect for our constitution or our God continue to pervert, deface and destroy the image of God on earth?
When will enough be enough? When will "we the people" rise up and say "NO"!
NO! We will not bow to the image of the beast!
NO! We will not accept what is un-natural as a substitute for what God created!
NO! We will not kill our children to appease the god of choice!
Abortion is not health care!
Abortion is murder! Abortion is tyranny!
People of God are not required to submit to tyranny!
Prayer: Father today I pray that the leaders of our nation would turn back to you for the wisdom and guidance needed to save our nation from this on going, ever increasing tyranny that threatens the very foundations of our nation. For your name’s sake and for the sake of our nation lead us in paths of righteousness. Help us to find a peaceful way to once again honor all life. In the mighty name of Jesus Christ, our Lord, I pray these things. Amen.
