Setting The Course
By Harriett Ford
We define our lives and set our course with our words. It is a spiritual law that our words produce results (Mark 11:23-24).
We were created to have dominion and authority.
Look at the Tower of Babel. God said man could achieve anything his heart imagined, (Gen. 11:6) so how did God stop this first attempt at a one-world government? He confused their language.
Language gives us tremendous power (Prov. 18: 21) because our mouths can speak God's Truth, or they can speak Satan's lies which always begin with“Has God said?”
Look at The Great Deception of our modern age, the commonly accepted theory of evolution. When it comes to what we believe about how the world was formed, we have only two choices: Nothing formed everything or God did.
If a society believes nothing created the world, then they have no moral accountability. The moral breakdown of our society is quite evident today. Jesus said people who deny the Father are children of the devil (Jn 8:44). They talk, walk, and act accordingly.
Those who serve God have His very words to talk, walk, and act on. We can speak blessing or cursing over ourselves every day. I can say, “This task is something I'll never get done; I'm just too tired.” Or I can say, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”
What kind of harvest do I wish to have? I will say like King David, “Father because I set my love on You, You shall be with me in trouble and deliver me. With long life will you satisfy me and show me your salvation” (Psalm 91: 14-16). Amen.

COMMENTS ON AMERICA'S MORAL DECLINE attributed to Rev. Billy Graham
Since the 19th century and the widespread acceptance of the evolutionary theory (which means ultimately that Nothing created Everything) we have seen our school children taught that there is no moral accountability since there is no God. We only have societal norms, and these change according to whoever is in power (godless Obama).
We know God's Word says, 'woe to to those who call evil good,' but that is exactly what we have done. We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our moral standards. We have banished prayer from school and called it freedom from imposing religion. We have exploited the poor and called it the lottery. We have rewarded laziness and called it welfare. We have killed our unborn and called it choice. We have neglected to discipline our children and called it building self-esteem. We have abused power and called it politics. We have coveted our neighbor's possessions and called it ambition. We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography and called it freedom of expression. We have ridiculed the time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment. We have legislated approval of some relationships, which Your Word calls an abomination, and called it tolerance. We have reinterpreted, redefined, and even removed parts of your word and called it love and equanimity.
Forgive our nation for setting ourselves above Your Word in order determine our own godless course.
Search us, Oh, God, today; cleanse us from every sin and set us free.
