I Choose Now

“Then the LORD appeared to Solomon at night and said to him, "I have heard your prayer and have chosen this place for Myself as a house of sacrifice. If I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or if I command the locust to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among My people, and My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land. Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to the prayer offered in this place. 
As for you, if you walk before Me as your father David walked, even to do according to all that I have commanded you, and will keep My statutes and My ordinances, then I will establish your royal throne as I covenanted with your father David, saying, 'You shall not lack a man to be ruler in Israel.' "
- 2 Chronicles 7:12-15, 17-18
 
Today is a great day in our nation. It's a day where those that proclaim God's name have the opportunity to fall on our knees, cry out to Him, seek His face and begin to turn our country back into the hands of other Godly men and women in leadership.
 
As Christians we have stood by way too long and given ground inch by inch by inch until the country we live in today has no resemblance to the Christian nation that was founded over 200 years ago. God's word is very clear and it tells us to submit to those in governmental authority, it tells us to pray for those in leadership, but it also tells us to stand firm and test and judge against God's word and His commands. In my opinion, it is clear to see that we are being led and governed by those that are telling us to live our lives in direct opposition to God's laws and commands.
 
As Joshua told the nation of Israel, today is the day that you must choose which god you will serve. As Joshua said, as for me and my house we will serve the Lord. I choose now!
 
They've taken Christ out of Christmas 
And God out of schools
We laughed and said they're crazy
But we were the fools
 
We didn't stand up 
For what we knew was right
But time has now come 
For God's people to fight
So choose now this day
Whose side you'll be on
The ones left behind
Or the ones taken home
 
I choose now!"
