As we approach 9/11, are we aware of our need of God? God is in control of the weather. And God is trying to get our attention. Will we recognize the hand of God in the weather that we have seen lately? More importantly, will we confess our sin and humble ourselves under the mighty hand of God? Amos, one of God’s prophets in the Old Testament, tells us how God controls the weather to get our attention. Amos 4:7-8 says, “And also I have witholden the rain from you, when there was yet three months to harvest; and I caused it to rain upon one city, and caused it not to rain upon another city; one piece was rained upon, and the piece whereupon it rained not withered. So two or three cities wandered unto one city, to drink water; but they were not satisfied; yet have ye not returned unto me, saith the Lord.”
Have you been praying that America will repent and turn from her wicked ways? We need to come back to God. Only God can save us. Jesus is the way, the truth and the life. And America has rejected the truth and has turned her back on God. How many more divine judgments will America have to face before she repents and turns from her sin? Christians, let’s pray for repentance and revival. That is America’s only hope.
