The total number of illegal immigrants in America is estimated to be in the 12 million range with over 80% being from Latin American, mainly Mexico. My state of California is home to nearly 3 million illegal immigrants.
Okay, why is this happening?
The alien who is among you shall rise above you higher and higher, but you will go down lower and lower. (Deuteronomy 28:43)
One of the curses for disobeying God’s voice is that the aliens in a nation will be raised up above that nation’s citizens. Has that been happening here in America? Yes, in many ways, including employment, politics, healthcare, and more.
Remember: the aliens or illegal immigrants are not accursed, but instead, we Americans are the ones who are living under a curse because of our many sins before God. Thus, don’t blame the illegal immigrants for America’s problems. We Americans are the problem. We must repent.
How we handle the illegal immigrant problem in America will also determine the grace that God shows our nation in the future. We will end up reaping what we sow.
So, let’s be careful to extend mercy and love whenever we can to the illegal immigrants in our midst.
My prayer for America today:
Lord, help us Americans to see You within the illegal immigrants who live among us. So, that if they are hungry, thirsty, poorly clothed, sick, or in prison, we would go to them and bless them as though it were You. (Based on Matthew 25:35-40)
What do you think and has the Lord spoken to you?
