Righteousness Exalts a Nation

By Cathy Irvin
Staff Writer

CBN.com - Where is righteousness in the land? Has it fallen by the wayside in our judicial system? Surely not! There are those among our judiciary who heed God’s rule and desires for this great nation. But, based on some of the liberties that have been taken in moral and spiritual matters, it would seem that this is not the case.

Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a disgrace to any people (Proverbs 14:34, Holman Christian Standard Bible [HCSB]).

God hears us when we pray, when we seek His will on earth as it is in heaven. Heaven clearly calls for righteousness in the land. Whenever there is a conflict of what man wants and what God’s intention is, we must call upon God to change the situation. There must be a shift in the courts. We must know that the heavenly court is in session and that nothing takes God by surprise. He sees all and knows all.

We have seen God’s divine intervention time after time. The timing of the Lord is perfect, so we must not let down our guard; we are the watchmen on the wall. A group of intercessors across the land is crying out for this very thing: a court that listens to God’s will for this nation.

Every Christian needs to become a prayer warrior for this cause at this time. We would never deliberately allow the enemy to come in and take over our nation, so we must fight; we know that we are on the battlefield of life and that we are soldiers in God’s army. We are also like lawyers pleading the case before the Great Judge in heaven, saying, “Hear our cry, O Lord. Let there be righteousness in the judicial system.”

God can turn the hearts of the Kings, so may the Supreme Court judges’ hearts be turned toward heaven to hear His plans.

He judges the world with righteousness; He executes judgment on the peoples with fairness (Psalm 9:8, HCSB).
