Praise the Lord everybody! Let everything that has breath praise His holy name! The Lord in His grace and mercy has truly been good to me. He has blessed me despite my shortcomings, despite my issues, but still, I know I must do better in my service to Him. I cannot continue to take advantage of God's long-suffering love for me, neither can America.

The good old USA, the land of "In God we trust", and the "Ten Commandments" posted on the walls of our courtrooms, and the home of hot dogs, apple pie and "God-fearing" people, God is trying to tell us that we have a "controversy" with Him. This is not the first time God has had a "Controversy" with His people.

Hosea 4: 1-3 states,
1Hear the word of the LORD, ye children of Israel: for the LORD hath a controversy with the inhabitants of the land because there is no truth, nor mercy, nor knowledge of God in the land.

2 By swearing, and lying, and killing, and stealing, and committing adultery, they break out, and blood toucheth blood.
3Therefore shall the land mourn, and every one that dwelleth therein shall languish, with the beasts of the field, and with the fowls of heaven; yea, the fishes of the sea also shall be taken away.

Everywhere you look these days, from the White House to the Church, We see the lying, the swearing, stealing and the lack of mercy, being demonstrated by the people of America. A country that at one time had such faith that it put the words "In God, we trust" on it's most valuable possession, it's money! Now we want to remove God's name from everything, the mere mention of His many names or His son Jesus is enough to cause tension and dissension between people. In a country that at one time would not even show two married people sleeping in the same bed on T.V. or open it's store's for business on Sundays because it was "the Lords day," now anything goes on T.V. and Sunday's are one of our busiest shopping days of the week.

God is now saying to us enough is enough. The Lord has "controversy" with this Nation and all you have to do is look around to see how far we have fallen. This country is about to explode, it is divided by race, religion and political ideology. And the Church, which should be the steadying force, the "rock" on which this country was supposedly built, is just as fractured as this country is. The Church is divided over race, politics, doctrine and even sexual preference. We have reached the "controversy" stage with God. We need healing!!

2nd Chronicles 7:14 states If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” 

This is our lifeline, we need to grab hold of it, we need to humble ourselves in fasting and prayer. We need to stop compromising with the world and recognize sin for what it is, sin. God wants to heal our land, all we have to do is follow His instructions.
