Remnant – a small remaining quantity of something.
Oftentimes we read in the Bible how God withheld judgment for awhile because of a few righteous people who honored His name and ways. For example, Jonah was sent to Nineveh to warn the people there to repent from their evil ways or be destroyed by a Holy God. When the people listened, then fasted and repented, our compassionate God chose to forgive them. That generation was saved – maybe we could call them a righteous remnant.
I would like to encourage people reading this blog who believe in the power of prayer, to lift up this nation to God and pray for repentance for our country. A righteous remnant today could make a difference in the timing of God’s judgment on the United States. As Ruth Bell Graham said, “If God doesn’t judge America, He will have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah.”
Judgment will come for the evil that has been allowed to become “normal” in our lifetime. I will pray and trust the timing to Him who loves me and sent His Son to save me. Meanwhile I will try to follow the wisdom of the Unity Prayer I have shared below. Please join me and become part of that remnant praying for America. God bless.
“God, grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change,
the courage to change the things I can,
and the wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time,
enjoying one moment at a time;
accepting hardship as a pathway to peace;
taking, as Jesus did,
this sinful world as it is,
not as I would have it;
trusting that You will make all things right
if I surrender to Your will;
so that I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with You forever in the next.”
