Keep Your Hand on Us

June 27, 2016

In Georgia, some police officers are responsible for patrolling parking lots of malls searching for animals left abandoned in hot cars. How many officers are responsible for patrolling the communities searching for elderly people left without fans or air-conditioners during these hot days? People are dying from heat exhaustion and heat strokes but our leaders are placing more emphasis on animals rather than humans.

Yes, I agree that pet owners should leave their pets at home rather than leaving them in hot cars. Jesus command us to “Love your neighbor as yourself.” (Matthew 22:39)

In this great and rich Country, homeless people are being harassed for sleeping or resting near stores. These homeless people freeze during the winter and burn-up during the summer. Now, bigots have came forth to voice their fear of the homeless. Our city and state leaders have not provided a secure place for the homeless to get them off the streets. What are they to do? Not one leader is concerned about the homeless or the elderly suffering from heat exhaustion. Our leaders are too busy self-promoting, building stadiums and setting their affections on things of this earth. “Set our affection on things above, not on things on the earth.” Colossians 3:2) Everything on this earth is temporal and will fade away. We need to make our deposit in Heaven and not on this earth where “moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” (Matthew 6: 19-21) People do not choose to be homeless. Circumstances beyond their control placed them on the streets. Everyone of us could be homeless if it was not for God’s hand on us, His grace and mercy. One songwriter asked the question: “if it had not been for the Lord on my side, where would we be?”

The prodigal son came from a good home. He thought he had arrived because of his inheritance. When his inheritance had run out, he found himself hungry, without any means of obtaining food until someone had mercy upon him and gave him a job feeding swines. When the prodigal son left home, his plans did not consist of (being without) and eating with swines. The plans we make are not always God plans. If we fly too high, God will bring us down. “Anyone who does wrong will be repaid for their wrongs and there is no favoritism.” (Colossians 3:25)

Prayer: Father, we thank You for Your continuous hand on us and Your grace and mercy. We ask You to bless the homeless, the one’s without and the less fortunate. In these last days, evil and selfish is on the rise but we know that You are still in control. We pray that people will repent and return to You, and open the door of their hard hearts and allow You to come in and minister to their hearts and accept Your Salvation.
