A Little Space
Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning I watched the election returns. I kept the remote warm, moving from channel to channel, looking for the latest returns, exit polls and the opinion of all the professional news staff.
Why? Why the concern? Was it just a symptom of being a news junkie or was it something else? Was it, maybe, hoping there would be evidence of a thread of values and a concern about the direction of a nation that seems to be turning against God and against the nation of Israel?
Monday night, while visiting in Asheville, South Carolina Senator Tim Scott declared, “We must not turn our backs on God or on the Nation of Israel!”
As the returns started to come across the news desks of the networks, exit polls and citizens began to say out loud what we all have been thinking…
“We are going in the wrong direction!”
Many of us have prayed for our nation and tried to remind others of the faith of our founding fathers. Our nation was born by men and women who prayed and asked God for His help.
The results of this election that has changed the US House, the Senate, and the majority of our nation’s governors may be our opportunity to see a spiritual renewal in our nation.
Ezra 9:8 says:
“And now for a little space grace hath been shewed from the Lord our God”… Why? To …“Give us a little reviving in our bondage.”
This could well be our “little space” to reach our family and friends for Jesus!
