Sometimes I have days when I wonder what God has in mind, I know that God never makes a mistake and his ways are not ways known to man but days like today I have to really bring forth a great will to remember to trust God and have faith. Yesterday same sex marriage was upheld in Montana, today the president is going to wield his mighty pen and by pass congress, once again, to do what he wants rather than what America voted him in to do. I know that God is in control but it gets harder and harder to understand where are government is going. I do know that Revelation tells us that this is how it would be in the last days so maybe that is why God's will wills our government to do this at this time. I know that my time is not God's time frame so I pray that I will understand in the end and trust in the Lord when our country seems to be on a path to evil and destruction with our government at the lead.
1 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God : the powers that be are ordained of God. 2 Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation. 3 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same: 4 For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid ; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil. 5 Wherefore ye must needs be subject , not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake. 6 For for this cause pay ye tribute also: for they are God's ministers, attending continually upon this very thing. 7 Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honour to whom honour. 8 Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law. 9 For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery , Thou shalt not kill , Thou shalt not steal , Thou shalt not bear false witness , Thou shalt not covet ; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 10 Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law. 11 And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed . 12 The night is far spent , the day is at hand : let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light. 13 Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying. 14 But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.
As an aside I do want to state that I don't disagree with same sex marriage because I hate or dislike anyone, I have a odd since of what marriage should be, maybe more so than most people who are against same sex marriage. I believe that Marriage is a union of three. (Funny a friend of mine told me her pastor's wife called it the marriage triangle, she must believe as I do) One man, one woman and the Lord as their guide in that sanctified by God union so therefore I don't actually believe in opposite sex marriage if it doesn't include God. I believe that if you are not three being married you should go down to the Justice of the peace and have a civil union (a civil marriage) same-sex or opposite sex. No, I don't believe Marriage exists out side of a relationship with God. Funny how there is this big to-do about marriage like it was something that was always part of history and all of a sudden someone's rights are getting stepped on. Well it was always part of history if you have a Marriage of God, but I digress. Did you know that marriage as we know it didn't exist out side of Church Marriages or State marriages, that were civil contracts between the extremely wealthy mostly to know who held all the money and inheritance of families, until 1639? Did you know it wasn't until 1830 – Married women were granted the right to own property in their own name, instead of being owned exclusively by the husband, and until then if you didn't have any money you didn't bother to get married if you weren't getting a Marriage sanctified by God, wow what does that say about the civil marriages from 1639 to 1830. I really think that if you are fighting so hard to have something you should at least maybe see what it is you want to be part of..... Marriage was made of God and only he can acknowledge it as such, so I am all for civil marriages for all of the lost, same-sex or not. Climbing down from my soap box now..... I am praying that God lets us in on his plan for us in the foreseeable future, if not I know that he is in charge with, our lives, our marriages, our borders and our government and that is enough for me... tomorrow.
