Meat For Men Daily Encouragement Blog

The vision for Meat for Men — UNCOMPROMISING MANHOOD blog is to encourage husbands, fathers and single men in Biblical manhood.

LETSMAGAOur nation has become far stronger in the secular than in the spiritual. As a result, we are greatly weakened and diluted in our moral values. This has resulted in an overall decline in almost every area of our national greatness. We must ask ourselves why so many people rallied around Donald Trump’s call to “Make America Great Again.” Was it because we sense we have, and are still losing, our greatness?

A prayerless people are a weak people, especially in spiritual things. No nation, city, or family can have the blessing of God upon them if they have no knowledge or education in the disciplines of calling on the name of the Lord.

It is possible that we have become nation highly educated in the secular, but highly uneducated in prayer and seeking God daily.

How can America ever become great again if we do not emphasize, in our Christian families and churches, the need to call upon the Lord? It is only families who know how to pray to the only true God that will make America great again.

We all know 2 Chronicles 7:14. When will it become our testimony? “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

It is only God, through the prayers of His people, who can make America great again.

Be encouraged.

URSaltThe truth is that if parents do not educate their children about prayer and God’s Word, they have failed to educate them in the things that matter most to God.

Our Heavenly Father desires His children to be in all the occupations of life, whether it be the arts, academia (doctors, lawyers, teachers, professors, science, engineering), the military (all phases), or manual work (building mechanics, and general labor.) I believe God also wants His children to be involved in the political arena and the media.

God wants His influence (we are the salt and light) to impact every area of human involvement. Many occupations of life require a high degree of education. However, this does not mean that a greater emphasis should be put on secular education in place of spiritual education. We can only be the salt and light and a godly influence on our fellow man if we are daily prayed up and have strong daily doses of God’s Word.

God wants His kingdom, like leaven, to infiltrate every area of our lives, both in our homes and in our places of work. Matthew 13:33 says: “The kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took, and hid in three measures of meal, till the WHOLE WAS LEAVENED.”

As fully surrendered Christians, what’s the point of being successful in our natural calling in life if we are not successful in our spiritual calling?

Jesus aid in Matthew 6:33: “Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” This does not mean we should put His kingdom first only on the day we first decided to accept Jesus as Savior and Lord, but every day following.

Some people thing that this Scripture only applies to the one day a week, e.g. Sunday. There could be nothing further from the truth.

Be encouraged.

PrayingChildrenParents want their children to be well educated in all things that pertain to this life. I have noticed how parents are proud to talk about their children’s success in academia and the college degrees they acquire. Personally, I have no problem with this for it is a good thing for parents to be proud of their children’s achievements in life.

What bothers me, is the failure of Christian parents to be concerned about their children’s education in the school of prayer and the school of walking closer to God. What’s the point of educating the natural man while the spiritual man, deep down inside the hearts and spirits of our children, continues to remain mostly uneducated, underdeveloped, and ineffective? Ph.Ds. and doctorates have not done anything to help America’s morals and arrest the social values that are racing down the slippery slope to spiritual bankruptcy.

We are asleep if this does not concern us.

Be encouraged.
