Devotion for October 1

Isaiah 10:1-2

Woe to those who make unjust laws, to those who issue oppressive decrees, to deprive the poor of their rights and withhold justice from the oppressed of my people, making widows their prey and robbing the fatherless.

There is a new law in Tennessee that prohibits camping on public land in the state. Places such as court house lawns, right of ways and land in public trust. This law was enacted so lawmakers could rise early and avoid protesters at the statehouse. It infringes on the homeless in our state and is discomforting to think that if i had to sleep somewhere other than my bed out of necessity I could be roused from my sleep because of circumstances. Pray to God we repeal this law and pray for those affected. Amen.

  1. Reminds me of this one… “woe to the solicitors” (lawyers, most “law makers” are lawyers) A young attorney right out of law school told me this.. I always remember it… “There is a great deal of difference between what is legal and what is justice.” We know where the ultimate justice is served right?
    Praying with you the dictators are overthrown.

  2. We have a small distribution list of my family both adopted and blood. There are 4 Pastors [Pastor Steve in one of them] as part of the distribution.
    We discussed this…
    • What does Scripture say about GOD’s government and Man’s government?
    • What should we do when they are opposed to one another?
    • What is an example of what happens when man’s government conflicts with God’s Government?
    • What should we do when they conflict?
    Government
    I looked up the Scriptures for this topic and found many. Try your own exploration.
    I believe all of us can agree our man’s government (no matter the party – be it “right” or “left” or “establishment”) is NOT what we should be concerned about first and foremost. Jesus said times would wax worse and worse. If we don’t recognize this we have had our heads in the sand.
    So what to do?
