Our society is degenerating very rapidly, and we are becoming dulled to it all. The abnormal is becoming normal; evil is becoming good. As you look around perhaps you wonder, ” What can God do through my life?”
And if He is going to do something, “Why is it that my prayers, have not yet been answered ?”
Let´s look at another time in history when a desperate hour came upon a nation. The book of First Samuel speaks of a season when there was no clear word or vision. The priesthood that was supposed to represent God was instead deeply compromised. (see 1 Samuel 2:22-24, 3:1). God´s character, purpose, and mind were hidden from the people, leaving them without answers to the questions in their hearts.
Today, it appears that the enemies of God now have the upper hand, dictating to us when we can pray, what we can teach our children, what is right and what is wrong.
Psalm 107 speaks of these seasons of holy desperation, describing a people who were wandering, hungry, and held captive. It was a time marked by foolish handling of the truth of God. Yet it is in these very moments of desperation that the general population begins to cry out to God, as is beginning in our day. It is like the time He came to Moses and said, “I have heard the cry of the people and I have come down to deliver them” (see Exodus 3:7-8).
Today the Lord hears the cries of those whose dreams have been shattered, of parents whose children have gone astray, of those who ask, “What happened to us?”
