For Today

Psalm 82:4 (NIV) 

Rescue the weak and the needy;
deliver them from the hand of the wicked.

Deuteronomy 15:7 (NIV)

If anyone is poor among your fellow Israelites in any of the towns of the land the Lord your God is giving you, do not be hardhearted or tightfisted toward them.

Jeremiah 22:3 (NIV)

This is what the Lord says: Do what is just and right. Rescue from the hand of the oppressor the one who has been robbed. Do no wrong or violence to the foreigner, the fatherless or the widow, and do not shed innocent blood in this place.

Proverbs 24:11-12 (NIV)

11 Rescue those being led away to death;
hold back those staggering toward slaughter.
12 If you say, “But we knew nothing about this,”
does not he who weighs the heart perceive it?
Does not he who guards your life know it?
Will he not repay everyone according to what they have done?

Esther 4:14 (NIV)

14 For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?”

James 2:1 (NIV)

My brothers and sisters, believers in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ must not show favoritism.

Domiciled

Need some encouragement to be a patriot?

 Seek the welfare of the city to which I have caused you to go in exile, and pray to Adonai on its behalf; for your welfare is bound up in its welfare.’ Jeremiah 29 [source]

In context this was penned by the prophet Jeremiah to his people in exile. Perhaps you and I are not in exile but in CHRIST JESUS we are sojourners here. And so wherever we now find our domicile, we have a Word from the LORD to seek to do the place good. We have a command right here written on the pages of our Bibles to PRAY for America. To do good for America, starting right where we are. Right where we are domiciled. Right where we live! 

Jeremiah 29:7 (AMP)

Seek peace and well-being for the city where I have sent you into exile, and pray to the Lord on its behalf; for in its peace (well-being) you will have peace.’

What do you suppose would be the outcome if all over America each one began to do what was good for the peace and well-being of the street on which we live?
