(A Word of Encouragement)
During the State of the Union address President Trump took a stand for life when he denounced and openly declared, “Lawmakers in New York cheered with delight the passage of legislation that would allow a baby to be ripped from the mother’s womb moments before birth.” Continuing he said, “These are living, feeling, beautiful babies who will never get the chance to share their love and dreams with the world”, before proclaiming on earth and into the heavens “all children, born and unborn, are made in the holy image of God”.
Since these words were spoken by the president of the United States an avalanche has occurred releasing and emboldening numerous states to move forward passing legislation valuing the life of a baby in his or her mother’s womb. Some states have attempted to pass legislation in recent years but were denied, in some cases by one liberal activist judge placed in their position to do exactly what they did.
In Deut. 30:19 God gives the people a choice in determining their future when he says through Moses, “I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants, (in this case your state) may live”.
Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia, Ohio, Missouri, Kentucky, Louisiana and others, regardless as to whether or not a federal judge blocks the will of the people, will reap the fruit of their choice. Along with the promise of Deut. 30:19 Paul reminds us, “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap” (Gal 6:7). What is reaped not only refers to the evil that is done but also to that which is sown in righteousness.
The enemies of our president are also enemies of the right to choose life. They are relentless in their attacks and are doubling down in their ongoing coup against the president and the nation. Abortion is possibly their most treasured ‘so-called’ right, and although most are unaware, is the sacrifice the god of this world requires. But in the midst of the gross darkness, God has a people who are turning to Him standing for truth and righteousness. These are being salt and light regardless of how dark the days become. Their courage and choosing to do what is right in the sight of God will not go unnoticed and will reap blessing and life for those they represent!
