Finally realized...

Finally...we begin to get it!

A little bit at a time, we begin to see the big picture!

Manasseh had done evil in the sight of the LORD. He became king at the age of 12 and reigned for 55 years. He rebuilt pagan shrines that his father King Hezekiah, had broken down.

How we ask?

They ignored the LORD. Over and over God warned and the people ignored. So what happened? The Lord sent Assyrian armies to take Manasseh prisoner. The Assyrians put a ring through his nose, bound him in bronze chains and lead him to Babylon. You know what Manasseh did then? You probably don't have to think hard...what do we do when we get into a bad situation? WE shout LORD, help me and so did he!

He sincerely humbled himself to the LORD. I picture this king that thought he was pretty special being lead by the nose with chains by the enemy and finally being made to hit his knees! How long before we are humbled to our knees? I watch the news this week and the arguments over who is doing what is best for the country and think it's all about who's not truly whats better for America - no its about who wins the battle! WE are being brought to our knees and we don't even realize it yet! America wake up and let's come together the way our founders came together.

We need to realize just like this proud king realized that the LORD alone is GOD! Read 2 Kings 21 or 2 Chronicles 33 and give some thought to remembering exactly who God is...

I sit surrounded by mountains as I write this today and I'm reminded of exactly how small we are and how big GOD is...Lift our country to God ask Him to forgive us for placing everything before Him! Why did the people first come to America? For religious was about God! It was about going to Him for our needs not the government! Our government is tooooooo much and it is being brought to its knees and so are we!

It is my prayer that we will finally realize just like king Manasseh realized that the LORD alone is GOD! We need to see the Light of GOD and allow Him to shine again throughout our land!

Sweet Blessings,
