Haiti and the Believers' Focus


Editors note: This blog is dedicated to a very discerning Sister in Christ who helped me today with her own words. God bless you, my friend.

By now we have all heard the misplaced comments from Mr. Pat Robertson, and I want to say up front that I will not use this time to tear into him or try to understand why he continues to offer such opinions.

What I will say is that discernment is the order of the day; and as believers our J-O-B is to follow The Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20) and to anxiously wait for the Savior to return who has been promised in Acts 1:11. The promise, reads like this: "Men of Galilee," they said, "why do you stand here looking into the sky? This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen him go into heaven." Today, we need to be about the Lord's business and not caught up in trivial matters.

So tonight, let me ask you: Are you doing all you can to witness for our Lord? Are your hearts and minds focused in prayer for this terrible tragedy and for the lives of those being devastated in Haiti? That needs to be our focus friends ... anything else is simply worldly propaganda and the enemy would love nothing more than to see the Body of Christ fighting amongst itself.

Prayer, is our only avenue to talk to the Lord. In this time, I pray that you would exercise it intentionally, and without ceasing. God bless you.

Thank you my friend for your kind words. Prayer is always a matter for the believer, and when we get distracted from that it is easy for us listen to the whispers of the enemy. Let us not listen to him, but remain steadfast in our commitment to the Lord's work.
