Isaiah 24:5 “The earth suffers for the sins of its people, for they have twisted God’s instructions, violated His laws, and broken His everlasting covenant.”
Everyone is talking about “save the earth”, about greenhouse gases, animals going extinct, etc. Yet we’re all missing the point when all we focus on is trying to live green to save the planet then live away from God’s will. The earth is suffering because man continually violates God’s laws. The only way out is to choose to live under the Lordship of Jesus Christ. Doing so doesn’t mean to live perfectly, it means you continually choose to surrender to Him. It means you can fall but you get up again and ask for forgiveness. It means you can struggle to obey yet you say, “help me because I can’t do this on my own!” He is good and gracious, and He wants to pour out His love and power into you so you can live His life, with His strength. And slowly but surely, your life begins to manifest Whose you are.
“Abba, I do t want to violate Your covenant. I surrender my will to Yours. Help me by the empowerment of Your Holy Spirit in me. In the Name of Jesus Christ I stand, and I ask. Amen.”
