It’s a Romans 1 kind of world! I’m praying this week for the pro-life counselors and for the Lord to shine through these courageous people as they meet the lie of the culture head on. Pro-life counselors are faced with trying to show abortion minded women the truth and combat all of the lies that have been fed to women in our society by the likes of Planned Parenthood and even other people of faith who choose to believe their own truth. In Romans chapter 1, in The Message it says:
“But the basic reality of God is plain enough. Open your eyes and there it is! By taking a long and thoughtful look at what God has created, people have always been able to see what their eyes as such can’t see: eternal power, for instance, and the mystery of his divine being. So nobody has a good excuse. What happened was this: People knew God perfectly well, but when they didn’t treat him like God, refusing to worship him, they trivialized themselves into silliness and confusion so that there was neither sense nor direction left in their lives. They pretended to know it all, but were illiterate regarding life. They traded the glory of God who holds the whole world in his hands for cheap figurines you can buy at any roadside stand.”
These verses of scripture say a lot. It says people know full well who God is and they know what is right and what is wrong and therefore they have no excuses. However, the bottom line is that people decided they know it all and they know better than God. They decided they could be God. But hasn’t that been going on since the Garden? Satan convinced Eve that the reason God did not want her to eat of the fruit of the tree in the middle of the garden was because it would make her like Him, as if God were threatened by Eve becoming like Him. What Eve did not realize was that she was already like God. She was created in His image and likeness and this is what Satan has been trying destroy since that moment!
Please continue to pray for the courageous pro-life counselors who are fighting against the lies perpetuated by the abortion industry. Please pray for the pro-life counselor who is faced with trying speak the truth to the abortion minded woman who believed the lie and traded the glory of God for a cheap figurine.
