What Can the Righteous Do
 
"If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?" Psalms 11:3
Everything is built on a foundation. It is what holds things up. I have seen that there has been a chipping away at the foundation in three major areas. One is our nation, second is family, and third is the church.
Our nation is and always has been the greatest nation on earth. This is true because of God's blessing. From the first the people that came here were in search of a place where they could worship and serve the true and living God of the Bible without hindrance of government control or organized religion. This country was dedicated to God, for the spreading of the gospel of Jesus Christ and it has been the greatest on humanitarian and missionary work in the world. Of recent years there has been an effort to discredit our forefathers and rewrite history in an attempt to take God out of our history and the reason for our being a great nation. Current leadership is pressing toward reducing this nation to a weak third world country that can easily be taken over by more powerful countries.
Then we see the breakdown of the family. In the beginning, God created male and female. On this the family has been established by God.  Yet there are those that say God made some people homosexual and they are to marry the same sex and also adopt children to raise them the same way. Children are taught in the schools to disrespect parents and give the school and government the authority over their lives.
Now the church has joined in much of this irresponsibility. So much of the church does not honor the Blood of Jesus Christ nor the word of God neither the Holy Ghost power.
In this world there are two kinds of people. There are complainers and conquerors. Complainers become criticizers to the degree they are filled with bitterness and hardness. They can only see fault and miss out on every good thing God has. When it's time to stand up an fight, complainers can only run away and hide.
Then there are conquerors. The uncompromising righteous. Those unyielding to pressure. Conquerors take action! Conquerors see giants as only another opportunity for God to show His mighty power!
So what can the righteous do? We can begin by praying. 2 Chron. 7:14 says, "If my people which are called by my name shall humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and forgive their sins and heal their land."
There is God's promise! It's not up to the heathen leaders, special interest groups and organizations to fix these problems. It's up to God's people! We should turn from our compromising positions concerning abortion, homosexuality, divorce and turn to the living God in repentance.
We can become Isaiah 58 Christians. We should raise up the foundations of many generations, repair the breach of where we are and what we should be. We can become builders of the old waste places and restorers of paths to dwell in. The unyielding, uncompromising righteous shall again take root downward and bear fruit upward.
The people of God need so very much to cry out for the anointing of God! Scripture tells us of an anointing that will turn the hearts of the fathers to their children and the hearts of the children to their fathers. There is no power on earth that can take the love out of a heart that's been put there by God.
The conquerors can get back to God's word as authority in our lives and in all matters.
We can begin to shine again as the light of the world should: not ashamed; but knowing whom we have believed and are committed to following Him wherever He goes. We the church are to be the pillar and ground of the truth. We must know who we are in Christ and who Christ is in us. Greater is He that is in us than He that is in the world.
Jesus Christ is the foundation of our faith, the church, the family, and the nation. He said He would build His church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. The conquerors need to take what will stand against all the chipping efforts of the enemy and prevail in family and government. If God be for us, who can stand against us?
