When the truth of God is suppressed, wickedness abounds. Even though the truth of the Lord can be seen in creation, for it speaks of the awesome power, beauty and majesty of the creator, and though it is obvious, many do not still acknowledge this.
We ought to be in awe and give thanks, but instead of giving thanks for such awesomeness of the creator, majority refuse to acknowledge him. We thought we were wise and could reinvent the wheel, change things up to suit our darkened mind, but instead we lost it. Creation lost its stand!
The result is what we see individually and collectively. Romans 1:21 speaks volume if you and I care to see things for what it is. Here is the cause of the depravity we see and hear about!
Romans 1: 21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.
24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25 They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.
26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. 27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.
28 Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. 29 They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, 30 slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; 31 they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy. 32 Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.
Father Lord, help us to take heed, examine our ways and repent of all evil. Help up to repent of our evil ways Father. Restore us. And for those taken over by darkened heart, Lord let your light shine in. For all those taken over by sexual impurity, Lord let there be deliverance.
I know that many are not comfortable addressing this like I, however Father, you know it ought to be addressed. We are all your creation. Let your light shine upon the dark places in all our hearts. Dislodge the lies of the devil in the heart of your people oh Lord in Jesus name. Amen
Only the Truth, the love of the Father in the heart of sinful man can effect a lasting change. May that love find a place in each of our heart I pray in Jesus name.
