Foxes prowl in it

 Lamentations: 5:18”Because of Mount Zion which lies desolate, Foxes prowl in it.”

For those who look for motivational devotions, ‘blessings’ devotions, this one here would be a great disappointment but if you still attempt to read, it would sure bless your soul.  Lamentations was written by Prophet Jeremiah, immediately adjoined to the book of Jeremiah because it talks about the woes and miseries of the people of God that Jeremiah was a first-hand witness. We can feel the raw pain and agony of the author as he penned this book and it opens with the words:1:1” How lonely sits the city That was full of people! She has become like a widow Who was once great among the nations! She who was a princess among the provinces Has become a forced laborer!:

The above scripture is the mourning of the people of God, pleading for mercy and forgiveness.  Today we see the curiosity of people connected with Russia and Ukraine war, blood, bombs, missiles, families scattered, children separated, cries, tears and uncertainty still hanging in the air.  Every youtube with this content has million views; however, even the Christians fail to understand that it is mentioned in the Bible that: Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places.(Matthew 24:7)  Dear Christian, how serious have you taken these words of Jesus and prepared your soul for eternity???

Do you fast, read the Bible, separate time early in the morning to be with God, join other believers and pray for the nation or are you busy visiting gym, beauty parlors and minding your own business?  Tell me.  On October 3 last year, 2021 eight people were killed in Lakhimpur Kheri during violence that erupted when farmers were protesting against Uttar Pradesh Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya's visit to the area. Four farmers were mowed down by an SUV, in which Ashish Mishra, son of a Union Minister was seated, according to the UP police FIR.  However, he was granted bail and the UP Government had not appealed against the bail.  The same party has now been reinstalled in UP with much pomp and glory because we Christians failed to join fellow brethren and pray for our country. 

Bible and  Church are forgotten because people today work even on Sundays. God and prayer meetings are replaced by booze parties.

Church stands neglected

Same sex marriage performed by pastors in churches

Abortion legalized

Kids abortion/[pregnancy

Premarital sex

Adultery

Deceit and malpractices have increased

 As rightly said in the above scripture, because our lives are barren without God, foxes prowl into our homes in the form of divorces, alcohol, jealousy and atheism. Get closer to God!
