Things Are Going Wrong All Around You

Tuesday, May 1st, 2012

Habakkuk 2:1: “I will stand at my watch and station myself on the ramparts; I will look to see what He will say to me.”

Do you ever feel as though things are going wrong all around you and you want to hear from God? I do.

A woman told me she’s glad her children are grown because she wouldn’t want to raise them in this present society, but she’s worried about her grandchildren.

I felt sick to my stomach when a mother told me the kids at a local middle school celebrated a “National Marijuana Day.”

The rate of breast cancer has decreased 20% in the past ten years, but it is still rampant.

It’s time to do as Habakkuk did in the Old Testament. I will stand at my watch in my prayer room. I will station myself with my Bible.

I will continue to pray no matter what and “will look to see what [God] will say to me.” What about you?

Dear God, help me stand at my watch no matter what. Amen.

Application: When will you look to see what God will say to you this week?
