Wayne Weekly “God’s Answer to New York State”
Written by Wayne Taylor on February 6, 2019
When NY Gouverneur Cuomo trumpeted the news that he would be signing the most radical abortion expansion bill ever contrived in America, many mouths dropped wide open in shock, while other mouths expressed eerie elation. Many rallied for prayer and even fasting in hopes that God would intervene and end the fiendish madness.
Did God hear our prayers? Yes He did. Did the most radical death sentence to the unborn law get passed and signed? Yes it did.
A week or so ago I happened to catch the children’s devotional short feature Keys for Kids hosted by “Zach” airing over the Mars Hill Network. The story was about a father who had lost his employment.
The story begins with the Dad’s children receiving puzzle pieces from an aunt who was an artist. Every so often this aunt would send to the children a few pieces of a picture she had painted that had been cut into puzzle like pieces. The children would look forward to receiving these fragments and piece them together with anticipation of identifying the image. During that time the two children got news of their Father’s employment loss. They could not understand why Dad had been “let go”.
The Father used the illustration of the aunt’s sending “puzzle” pieces, and asked if the children knew yet what the picture was of. “Not really sure”, was their answer, we don’t have enough of the pieces to be sure of what the drawing is.”
The parallel is clear…the pieces have not all been received.
God is infinite in wisdom, and very longsuffering. This immediate passing of the atrocious legislation is hard for us to swallow. We must trust God and continue in prayer.
