Look for God’s purpose in the middle of the storm

To the Editor:
To find grace, look outside yourself and look to the cross. The name of Jesus Christ is the foundation of the Christian faith. There is no dividing line between God and Satan, between heaven and hell. The name of Jesus declares a choice. Our life depends on it. Satan will never stop his deceitful tactics. Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the father but by me.”
The thing that will turn this nation around is the Word of God. The far left is in control of the news media and education. The question today is are we going with the media and government representing and promoting political correction or with Biblical correction. Why would God withhold judgment when we have killed millions of babies? Turned God out of schools? News media calling good evil and evil good?
God blessed America beyond all nations because we were a blessed nation. In God we trust. God is still in control, but it’s up to us on which way it goes. The situation today can draw us closer to God or let it drive us further away. There are forces of wickedness and darkness at work in our nation to deceive in any capacity they can. Let us pray for guidance and wisdom in the days to come. Pray for both parties that they will put away their politics and turn to God.
As a result of God’s grace we can realize God’s care and protection. God’s grace that is centered in Jesus Christ, the one who lived 2,000 ago and has made a lasting impact on the world. The one who fulfilled all the prophecy, that they called Immanuel, which means “God with us.”
