The Blood Of The Children Cries To God From The Ground

January 21

"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you;
before you were born I sanctified you;"
Jeremiah 1:2

Even from conception, before we were even formed, we were known by our Creator. Every child who has been murdered before birth, each and every one - was known by the One who was forming him/her. How, then, can mortal men so attack the God of Creation, and without pangs of guilt snuff out the life of the child who is being formed in the womb?

Someone answer me this:
Why would the violent massacre of six-year-olds be different from the violent massacre of children in the womb? Does age make it less terrible?

In some places "partial birth abortion" is still taking place.  That's the murder of the child when he's in the process of being born, when pointed scissors are plunged through his neck - the neck of a fully formed little boy or girl. It's every bit as violent and bloody and awful as the killing of a six or seven or eight-year-old child would be by any other means. Why does the murder of the older child seem so much worse? It isn't.

God said to Cain, the first murderer, "What have you done??? The voice of your brother’s blood cries out to me from the ground."

And surely, the voice of 60 million little boys and girls cries to the Lord from the ground.

When the judgment of God for these murders strikes the United States of America, multitudes will perish. Let no one ask "why?"

Show Me The Way You've Chosen For Me

January 20

"Show me your ways, O Lord,
teach me your paths.
Lead me in your truth and teach me,
for you are the God of my salvation,
on you I wait all the day."
Psalm 25:4-5

The right way is not something the wisdom of man can determine. Man seeks to enlarge himself, he sets his path according to the way he thinks will bring him the most wealth and success. But this can be deadly because what seems right to a man may actually be the way that will bring him to ruin.

"There is a way that seems right to a man,
but its end is the way of death."
Proverbs 12:12

True wisdom is the seeking of the ways of the Lord. He has a plan for each life, and it may be different from the plan a man has set up for himself. To reach the plan the Lord has for him, a man or woman must first clothe himself in humility and put his trust not in himself but in the Creator, the one who brought him into the world in the first place.

Make this your daily prayer:

"Show me YOUR ways oh Lord,
Teach me YOUR paths,
Lead me in YOUR truth and teach me,
on you I wait all the day,
for YOU are the God of my salvation."
