It looks to me like God has placed believers between a rock and a hard place on illegal immigration. On the one hand, we are called to love the stranger and feel compassion toward the needy.
What heart is not touched by a poor Mexican who has risked his life to cross the desert to America in order to provide a better life for his family. Most of us would do the same thing if we were in the same situation.
But with the decent illegal immigrants, America is also getting a mixture of terrorists, MS-13 gang members, and other criminals. Is this a good trade-off?
Then, on the other hand, California is in open rebellion against the Federal Government with its “sanctuary state” status. God hates rebellion!
How can this ever be handled in a godly manner?
My prayer today:
Lord, we do not know how to pray for California on the illegal immigration issue, but we trust that You know the answer. So, we put it in Your hands and trust in Your mercy.
What do you think and has the Lord spoken to you today?
Join with me on Tuesdays to fast and pray for California.
