WE NEED GOD

January 9, 2021

After blogging consistently throughout 2020, with my last blog being part of a series on Joseph’s life, I decided to take a sabbath for several weeks over the Christmas holiday and return to blogging and posting on January 9, 2021.

It has been my practice to start working on my blog during the week and then post it to my blog site on Saturday. However, this week I did not follow my usual routine because I was caught up in the monumental events happening in our nation. Besides the daily escalating death of people due to COVID-19 and the negative results of this pandemic to our world, I also became focused on two more significant events.

On Tuesday, January 5, 2021, we had an election in Georgia that resulted in two Democrats being selected to fill seats in the U.S. Senate. On Wednesday, January 6, 2021, Congress met in a joint session to formally count and tally the votes submitted by each state’s Electoral College. On this same day, President Trump’s supporters gathered in Washington, D.C., for a rally to show their support of President Trump and his message of a fraudulent election that he has been increasingly declaring since his 2020 presidential election loss. After the rally with the president’s encouragement, the crowd marched to the capitol building, where a mob broke into the building and wreaked unbelievable havoc. Seeing the scenes of the mob walking through the halls of the capitol building and boldly doing damage was disheartening. Plus, since that time, it has been reported that five people died due to this event.

Now days later, as I prayed, I thanked God that this month thousands of people around the world are in a time of fasting and consecration. We are seeking God for many things, but I believe most of all, we are requesting His divine intervention in our lives in these turbulent times. Though the spirit of fear is trying to grip our hearts as we watch and hear the events happening in the world around us, the consecration is causing our spirit man to be lifted with hope.

Additionally, I found myself meditating on two songs: “We Need You Lord” and “If We Ever Needed The Lord Before, We Sure Do Need Him Now.” These songs expressed my present sentiments, and I want to share portions of them with you.

We need You Lord, we need You Lord, right now. We need You Lord, we need You Lord, right now. We lift our hands and bow our knees and worship at Your Throne. We need You Lord, we need You Lord, right now

I need You, Lord. I need You Lord, right now. I need You, Lord. I need You Lord, right now. I lift my hands and bow my knees and worship at Your Throne. I need You, Lord. I need You Lord, right now

and

If we ever needed the Lord before, We sure do need Him now. Oh, we sure do need Him now. Oh, Lord, we sure do need Him now. (Oh, glory) If we ever needed the Lord before, We sure do need Him now. We need Him every day and every hour

On July 25, 2020, I posted a blog titled “We Need You, Lord,” and in it, I voiced some of the sentiments that I still feel six months later. We need God in this chaotic world. So, it is my prayer that as we humble ourselves before God, seek His face and obey His Word, we will be strengthened, prosperous, and kept in 2021.
