Politically I am an Indedemlican. And...I'm highly interested in politics. My TV remote is trained to move from CNN to FOX to get both truths and both biases.
Something has happened recently that I have refrained from saying. Yet, as I was praying the other day about it again, I caught myself somewhat in hiding for fear I would be misunderstood or possibly offensive if I said. But God has done something recently and I will risk fall-out in order to give Him praise.
I have sought God for two years that He would show up in the media. I've asked Him over and over and over to place Himself in a position of being named "favorably" by some secular highly-visible personality. It has happened. Glenn Beck of FOX is calling all, day by day, to get our country back to God.
One can see why I would be hesitant. Would readers think I endorse everything of Beck? Would some find this article distasteful to the extent they would bail on reading any more....ever? By mentioning Beck would some assume I believe things I really don't believe? It has happened on many other fronts and might on this one.
However, I want you to know something. God is to be credited for putting someone in the front of America that dares acknowledge Him. Do I think Mr. Beck is ideal? No...nor does he. But...he surely is bold to insist America's hope is based upon God. Do I think he has an ideal grasp on all political issues? No. What I do think is it is very clear; Glenn Beck pleads with his audience to make a corrective move back to God.
Sometimes Mr. Beck is so outspoken and negative, I shut him off. Yet I have prayed for a long time for God to show up on TV through some spokesperson. Now that it has happened...I'm saying so...and thanking God.
Am I the only one who prayed for this? Surely not. It isn't about me. It is about God working from one or one hundred thousand prayers. The point? God works. Imagine. Dream. Pray. Reach. He is there.
And when you see God work....say so!
