How much more can be said than what so many tears have already expressed? How many protests are needed in order to stop Black blood from pouring out onto our streets? How many commissions have to be established so that the faucet of hate oozing with the red liquid of Blacks slain are turned off? Can police training curriculums penetrate those who are severely blinded by bigotry? Are law enforcement hiring systems savvy enough to identify those who seek to hide their prejudices ? Do these occurrences have to be accepted by us because we know evil exists and the Prince of Darkness does as well? I think not! I will not! We must not!
Yes, God is good, and Satan is a defeated foe. Nevertheless, I can’t stop thinking about that young girl who the journalist reported was in the foster care system and a ward of the State of Ohio. That news, along with the shooting incident, in and of itself was telling and something that ought to have gotten our attention. Something that should keep the intercessors on their knees. Ma’Khia Bryant was only 16 years old. An age I had an opportunity to revel in over 45 years ago, but an age that Ma’Khia will not be able to move on from. Life stopped any hopes she may have had on making it to 17.
Hearing the news about Ma’Khia on top of some of the other recent news like that of 21 year old Daunte Wright continue to remind us that we are living in a country that is still plagued by an aggressive cancer. A racist disease that seeks to denigrate Black family cells while metastasizing a hate that kills and destroys.
No… we don’t have to accept this! I refuse to accept this! Our children’s children will not have to deal with this debilitating disease that we have been dealing with most of our lives. Enough is Enough! We must believe God and continue to pray so that He pours out His healing mercies treating us with His divine therapy . The Bible tells us that God is not a man that He should lie (Numbers 23:19) and that His Word will not turn back void (Isaiah 55:11). Therefore, we have to continue to pray and believe what is declared in 2 Chronicles 7:14: “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.”
Earth has no sorrow that Heaven cannot heal!
