Jesus stood up and said to her, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?” 11 She said, “No one, Lord.” And Jesus said, “Neither do I condemn you; go, and from now on sin no more.”]]
A few days ago I shared with a group of believers that “life and death” is in the power of our tongue. When Jesus encountered the woman caught in adultery, He did not speak words of condemnation. If you read John 8, you will find that it was the scribes and the Pharisees (the religious leaders) who brought the woman and made a public display of her before Jesus and the crowd. I think they wanted Jesus to speak condemnation on her, but we find that with His Holy and Righteous tongue, He did just the opposite. He said “neither do I condemn you .”
As I look at the news about the USA, my heart is heavy. I’m sure that many of you feel the same. BUT as I continue in prayer, I feel the Lord wants me to say to the USA, “…neither do I condemn you.” I believe He wants me to continue to pray words of life and hope and expectancy over the USA. I don’t think He is done with her yet!
Please don’t let FOX news (or whatever news source you use) have the final say. Listen to the Holy Spirit as you pray and ask Him how to pray.
I really appreciate the word from Lana Vawser’s blog:
Keep on praying!
