MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 9
Scripture: I Chronicles 21:1-4
In a moment of weakness, arrogance and pride David decided to number Israel so he could know how strong and valiant and mighty that God had made him. Joab tried to argue him out of it. David would not hear it. David moved into a major failure that was going to be very costly for Israel. As the leader, his sin of arrogance and pride would bring God’s Judicial Hand on the nation. How could God redeem it? This makes us assess our own political president. Would a sane leader sow seeds of destruction to his own military? To the great surprise of leaders, sexual assaults are rampant in the military. The military is reaping an increase of sexual assaults because the commander in chief has sown sexual assault by welcoming those practicing homosexuality! America’s president sowed the seeds of destruction to his own military while the church through tradition continues to graciously pray for him thereby enabling his evil! The response of the church should have been to pray judicial covenantal retribution on every senator who supported the godless decision. Their actions brought great destruction to America. May the Lord repay them according to their work!
