Ask God to open your eyes so that You might see and know His laws. Ask the Lord to help you understand His commandments. Desire to know His judgments, that you may not disobey Him. Those who are proud are cursed by God. This includes people of the LGBTQ community. They flaunt their pride flag and their debauchery lifestyle. These people mock Christians when they hear us preach the gospel, especially when we speak against homosexuality. It is important that we proclaim it as a grave sin in God’s sight, although people will hate us for doing so. These are those who error and do not obey the Lord’s commandments. David also wrote, “open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law. I am a stranger in the earth: hide not thy commandments from me. My soul breaketh for the longing that it hath unto thy judgments at all times. Thou hast rebuked the proud that are cursed, which do err from thy commandments.” (Psalm 119:18-21) Only God can help you when people revile against you for speaking God’s truth in this wicked world.
Ask God to forgive you, being sorry for your sins. To not cast you off when you stumble. We are unable to keep God’s laws perfectly because of the lusts of the flesh. Often do I slip and fall. Many people speak against me, while calling me a false prophet/teacher. They speak lies about me, while slandering me through gossip. Many people even create memes about me that they share with people on social media, which shows their fruits as a false Christian. I love God’s ways and His Words in scripture, for they are the roadmap for my life. Therefore, I ask Him to help me know His ways and teach me through the Bible. Lastly, David said, “remove from me reproach and contempt; for I have kept thy testimonies. Princes also did sit and speak against me: but thy servant did meditate in thy statutes. Thy testimonies also are my delight and my counselors. My soul cleaveth unto the dust: quicken thou me according to thy words.” (Psalm 119:22-25) Come unto Jesus and begin to cling to His Words in the Bible. Through prayer, God will speak to you and give you wisdom. Amen.
Let us pray:
Oh Lord, I pray that those who are mockers of Your truth will one day come to faith in You. I know that this is impossible for the majority of people, but the few that are chosen are seeking You still. Lord, these wonderful people might be willful sinners, but soon they will become Your willful servants instead. It is amazing during those times I have met people and know immediately that their lives are different. How because they are searching for truth, what they are lost in now, will become a thing of the past. Jesus, these people just need You for a change to take place in their lives. Surely, hell is not for them, for inside their hearts are real confessions. This may not be who they are now, but repenting is what they will do when the message of the cross sinks in. God, Your words in scripture are alive and lead me to know what to say to people. Even when it is difficult, I am given words to speak, and lives are changed. The Holy Spirit is what changes people and I give You glory for every divine encounter I’ve experienced. I love You, Jesus. Lead me and others safely home. Amen.
