Will We Seek God Now or Wait for the Next Attack to Occur?

Tuesday, September 11th, 2017, is the sixteenth anniversary of the terrorist attacks by the Islamic group al-Qaida on the twin towers in New York City. Two thousand, seven hundred, and fifty-three people died after two planes consecutively plunged into the towers taking many lives and traumatizing all those left behind. And within minutes, two more planes purposely crashed into the Pentagon and into the ground in Pennsylvania killing another two hundred and twenty-four people. Without warming, each life came to a tragic end.

In remembrance of 911 and seeing all that’s occurring in our nation and around the world today, would it not be wise to seek for divine help? We’re facing threats of nuclear war by Kim Jung-un, leader of North Korea, racial and political divide, social and economic divisions, violence and tyranny in the streets, and a lack of moral restraint.

When 911 occurred many people poured into churches all across the nation. They instinctively knew we needed divine help to make sense of what happened and to protect us from other atrocities of life. Life would no longer be the same, and now on every street corner, in every nation, there could be a possible attack at any minute. I’ve been wondering if there’s anything we can do to make a difference? Human help is limited. Could seeking God change the state of a nation if we would but ask Him? If it’s true He can move the heart of a king like water, can He not change the heart not only of a leader today, but anyone who seeks Him? Will we wait till something happens, or will we bow our knees now, repent, and ask Him to have mercy upon us and save us from an attack that could come our way?

The challenge to pray is for all of us. He tells us in His Word, “You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” (Jeremiah 29:13 NIV) He also tells us, “Call unto Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.” (Jeremiah 33:3 NKJV) This is a plea for all of us to ask for His help; from the White House to my house.
