“He is the Rock, His work is perfect; For all His ways are justice, A God of truth and without injustice; Righteous and upright is He. “They have corrupted themselves; They are not His children, Because of their blemish: A perverse and crooked generation.”
-God is our Rock, upright & Righteous in nature by whom we are called to holiness, but in our imperfections we often fall into temptations of sin just like the Israelites did in the Old Testament. Jesus Himself is a model of how to conquer temptation when He was tempted three times & overcame. The first temptation was when He was told by the devil to change stones into bread. Second; He was tempted to throw Himself down from the pinnacle of the temple & receive salvation from the Father, & lastly satan took Jesus to a high mountain & showed him the splendour of the worldly kingdoms with a promise to give Him everything once He agrees to worship him (Mat 4:1-11). Jesus stood firm by the scripture with perfect knowledge of the will of the Father & His assignment to save the world from sin & such corruption. Most often we are faced by such temptations which revolve around riches, lust, pleasure, authority & power; which bring about idolatry & corruption of the world into our hearts & societies. We are reminded that we are surrounded by a great cloud of witnesses & ought to lay aside every weight & sin that easily ensnares us & look unto Jesus the author & finisher of our faith so that we may have the strength to preserve & finish the race (Rom 12:1). Corruption has blinded our eyes as a society & most men seek opportunities to get wealth without considering the well-being of the future generations & most importantly; the will of the Father in our lives & nation. God calls us to a new life of healing & reconciliation individually & as a nation saying, “if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land” (2 Chr 7:14).
Jesus our Savior Who is seated at the right hand of the Father have mercy on us & on the whole world. We confess our personal sins, sins of our families, sins of our fore-fathers, sins of our leaders, sins of our nation & those of the whole world, forgive us Father. Many are the times we have loved money more than You Lord, have mercy on us. Many are the times we have stolen & coveted other peoples property, be merciful unto us Oh Lord. Many are the times we have gone against Your holy will Lord, have mercy on us & heal our land Almighty Father full of grace. Deliver us from all evil & change our lives Lord. Bless our nation Father so that we may prosper in every good work that You have designed for us. All glory, honor, riches, power & authority belongs to You Lord, now & forever. Amen
