Random Thoughts in Prayer

27 Aug

Faith in God is far from superstition! Stand solid and trust in the Lord! Read on!

 Why do the nations protest and the peoples grumble in vain? Kings on earth rise up and princes plot together against the Lord and his anointed:

“Let us break their shackles and cast off their chains!”  Ps 2:1-2

This seems to be the attitude of secular powers – the attitude that believers are shackled and chained and enslaved to quaint or even dangerous superstitions. I am reminded of something I wrote many years ago and it seems to be a good response to those who would set us “free.”

A man who is free in a circumstance of freedom may not be truly free. He may be only a creature of circumstance. But a man who is free in a circumstance of “unfreedom” is truly a man – a free man.

 The remaining survivors of the house of Judah shall strike root below and bear fruit above. For out of Jerusalem shall come a remnant, and from Mount Zion, survivors. The zeal of the Lord of hosts shall do this.  Is 37:31-32

For many years this idea of a remnant has surfaced among Christians who see rampant wickedness in the world. They expressed trust in God’s word that, in his zeal, God will save a remnant which will remain faithful and begin again to bear fruit for his kingdom – more believers and workers in his vineyard.

It seems this position was a bit prophetic. Many Christians seem to be so in name only: Truth is what you want it to be – you can pick and choose from the Scriptures and Tradition only those things which cause you the least discomfort – and challenge!

Pray for the Church, for true disciples who will profess faith publicly, prophetically and effectively.
