Our trust in God is how we got over, and we need that same God to stay over!

This is black history month and we celebrate all the pioneers who paved the way for us. We must admit that we are a strong people who fight our way through, no matter what adversities trials or tribulations we face. The very moment that they count us out and think we're down for the count, is the moment we break through the chains and figure out a new route. This is why I am proud to be part of a people who are strong and endure to the very end. I am proud to be a part of a people who faith is strong and unbreakable.


I know that we are a chosen people set aside by the all mighty God who loves us. When you look back over our history you can truly see the hand of God over our people. God was the very fabric that sewed our tenacity, strength and perseverance together. Could you imagine serving a limitless God but living a limited life, I totally understand why Martin Luther King Jr. had to stand up and fight. I know that when times were getting rough and he felt like giving up, I could see him opening up his Bible and turning to the scriptures for peace. The awesome thing is when you need encouragement the Bible is a great place to look.


The word of God is a strong tower the righteous run in and are saved. The word of God tells me that I can do all things through Christ Jesus who strengthens me. The word of God also tells me that the kingdom suffered violence, and the violent take it by force. When you read scriptures that tell you to stand still and see the salvation of the lord,you can be weak but you cannot give up.


This generation must get back to what some of the great pioneers of our people practiced, and that is relying on the word of God. When we rely on his word we must live and practice what it says. The Bible says " My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou has forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children" ( Hosea 4:6). This generation must understand if we want to get access to the promises of God we must get knowledge of His law in order to qualify. Too many have gone astray from what the pioneers, our grandparents and great grandparents have taught us.


We must not only gain knowledge of God's laws but live according to His laws. The Bible says faith without works is dead (James 2:14) so it's not just enough to know the laws of God you have to live them. I can hear some asking, "why should we follow the laws of God?, I'm glad you asked! The Bible says "if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land." ( 2 Chronicles 7:14). Listen people of God, it's Awesome that we can all get together and protest because Black Lives Do Matter! However if we come together and do what the word of God instructs us to do how much more powerful will we be. When we obey God he will fight our battles, and their is no police department, politician or any form of racism that can contend with God!
